2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Catching up on ratings...... On tap at Detroit Airport. Pours a light golden color, clear, and small white head. Aroma was hay, grass, and kind of funky. Taste was the same. Not much to it, just felt like a super light beer without much flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Translucent orange/yellow. No head. Wonderful aroma including cereal, honey, pastry, and a hint of lemon. Absolutely adore this one. Medium bodied and slightly creamy. Begins with a smooth, creamy concoction of dough, cereal, honey with some slight tingling bubbles and finishes with a slightly hoppy sensation. I definitely need to incorporate more Kolsch into my beer drinking.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours slightly hazy bubbled straw yellow with a foamy white head that laces well. Aroma is grass/hay/grain with a touch of sweetness. Taste is slightly sweet bready malt, corn, grass. Really no bitterness. Very crisp when cold but a bit malty sweet. A decent kolsch.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 fl oz bottle. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a white head. Burnt sugar, caramel, and light almost squash-like notes on the nose. Sweet up front with mild corn syrup, light sponge toffee, and minerality that leads into maltiness and lighter metallic hops. Not my favourite beer style in the world, but this is entirely decent.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft pour. Pours a pale yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma is a touch grainy, but it is so faint, I can’t be sure. The taste is bbready and a little sulphuric, like a lager sometimes gets. Light body and medium carbonation.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours yellow with a white head. Taste lightly sweet, floral. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not that good. Kind of a weak flavor but too much alcohol content obvious to make this a good Kolsch. Citrus. Wheat. All kinda watery.

12oz bottle, pours hazy yellow color, little head, but decent lacing throughout the pour. Typical German style brew, clean crisp flavors, refreshing finish.

Woops, almost forgot this. Thanx Eric.
This was poured into a stange.
The color had a light golden orange to yellow color with a slim finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Lacing, uh...not really, there wasn’t anything there.
The smell had a sweet hay/grassy aroma with light sweet crisp malt in the background,.
The taste was basically the same - barely anything different.
On the palate, this one sat fairly light and came across pretty sessionable.
Overall, good American - Kolsch styled ale that I would have again, maybe not an Alaskan Summer ale, but hey I can’t get this on a regular basis and since ABC recently started distributing to Michigan, the least is giving up some of Michigan, thank you New Holland. Cheers.
