3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Appearance is a hazy golden-straw color with a thick white head. Aroma is grass, lemon, a bit of earthiness, and some very mild skunk. Taste is a watery earthiness, some bready maltiness, and grassy hops. Not bad, probably pretty refreshing on a hot day.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted on 4/10/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours hazy bronze with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace with a touch of sticky lace along the inside of the glass. The nose is doesn’t have a whole lot going on with more malty bread than anything with just a touch of grassy green hops on the back. The flavor is the same non-descript light malty bread with a touch of bitterness on the grassy hops. The body is just under medium with average carbonation and a medium malty bread and somewhat bitter grassy hops finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very pale yellow beer with a huge head like stiff beaten egg whites. It took a long time to get the whole bottle into my glass. The last pour dumped floaties into the beer. Clean floral lemon scent. Annoyingly lively carbonation. Apricot and pear fruit flavors with a lemon yeast finish.

Old tick, mild koelsch, good for an american example balance of grains and spicy hops.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from tasting on January 13. The pour is a medium gold with a decent white head, and sporadic lace. The aroma is pretty plain. It’s got a little lemon zest, some grassy notes, and maybe a touch of hops. The flavor is also pretty plain. It’s quite light, but it’s got a nice citrusy tone, mostly lemon. The mouth feel is decent, definitely thin as would be expected, and there isn’t much that lingers around

Very distinctive taste and a great beer. Perfect for sitting around and sharing stories for the tenth or twentieth time amongst close friends....just making life come full circle!

Kolsch is not one of my favorites, however this this was nicely grainy/lemony so that it tasted pretty decent. Too bad I had it in January...this is definitely a summer beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
@Party Source / Bellvue - Clear medium amber, 1/2" white foam head, swirls of lace. Taste is clean malt w/o adulteration, moving to mild floral hops in the finish that turn things toward malt with sour lemon. Unpretentious, simple, drinkable, but not a lot there.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From chicken scratch at bier baron in dc.
A: straw, little white soapy head. Excellent clarity. No lacing.
S: grain, grass, noble hops are slight if anything.
T: very light and crisp with grains, some lemon tones.
M: light body and low carb. Would like a bit more carb. Finish is insignificant.
O: this has a good base, but my favorite kolsch’s have a nice dry hop to them.
Serving type: on-tap
