could be the perfect joining of lager and ales- ale yeast but fermented cold like a lager. It’s decent and refreshing- a nice break from overly hopped american style ipa’s (although I always seem to come back to those.....). pours golden with a quickly dissipating head. If I were to judge on color alone, would have guessed a lower rating for this one. can’t judge a book...blah blah. refreshing, fruity, bubbly, interesting, dry on the finish, great warm weather brew. enjoyable, but even better than that, unexpected.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle into pint glass. Slightly hazy golden color with white head. Aroma of pale malt sweetness with a nice citrus/lemon note. Taste add nuances of straw and graininess, slight grassy bitter finish. Light body, moderate carbonation, sweet with clean finish. Pretty flavorful for a Kolsch.

I like beer. OK with that said this beer was an average middle of the road beer. I would probably not give this one to my wife’s father in the fear that he would think I’m a middle of the road kind of guy. This is a after beer if you know what I mean. A filler inbetween the first few and the time when you are actually drunk. Not a bad beer with the smell of cooked vegetables, a taste of packaged lunch meat, and the aftertaste of girl who is a six. Big Red definitely takes care of this beer when its all done. OK I need to get back to work. Carry on you Hosers.

Bottle. Gold pour with a short white head. Grain in the nose with light lemon, soft grassy notes and buttered toast. Taste is grains, sweet malt, light lemon, grass, light floral notes and biscuit. Body is light-medium with a light, prickly carbonation. Ends with more biscuit, buttered bread, light lemon, grains, grassy notes and sweet malt.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from the bottle - slightly hazy light yellow, 1 cm white head. Head dissipates quickly, light lacing. Aroma has notes of lemon and sweetness. Tastes initially sweet, followed by a mild bitterness. Corn and creamy flavors as well. More hoppy than I expected, but pretty good. This would go nicely with spicy Asian food. Medium-short finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Though not a lite beer at all, this brew is an almost refreshing beer that I enjoy in warmer weather. A slightly cloudy straw golden color, 1 finger head that dissipated to a thin layer. The nose was sweet, somewhat earthy, a touch floral. Palate is clean & crisp, hints of lemon and maybe a touch of grapefruit. Trace of hop bitterness. Light body, good carbonation. If you’re fond of strong ales, Imperial stouts, and/or hop bombs (as am I) but want a nice change of pace, this is a good one to try.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with white head and just a wee bit of lacing. Aroma is slight doughy, grainy, slight citrus of the lemon variety. Taste has the same with hints of fruitness and a decent bit of bitterness and some minerals. Just ok. Session or not, I still prefer a bit more flavor and depth to my brew.
