3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a stange.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy to slightly transparent yellow to light orange color. A layer of white foamy head sat at the top and dissipated nicely leaving some light lacing sliding into the beer.
The smell had a sweet to grassy fresh citrus blend.
The taste was mainly the same leading with a fair citrus blend into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style and for me as it made up for lack of bitterness as a kolsch should.
Overall, I say as a kolsch, it works. Definitely a Summer pounder.

[Tap] Tried this at the brewery in mid-September. Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy head. Nose is of grassy hops and sweet grains. Sweet and grainy taste includes soft hops, thin citrus and cereal grains. Nice body for the style. Dry finish. A good Kolsch, definitely one of the better ones I’ve had recently.
