2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

Albany, Ga. - Warehouse Package Store - 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, yet sparkling medium golden with a light snow white head that sticks around a while. Aroma has some grainy notes, a touch of lemon. Flavor has some grainy accents, some buttery back end notes, a touch of yeast. Crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light copper with a modest white-off-white head. The nose is sweet with malty overtones. No evident hop. The palate is light, crisp, and sweet with suggestions of hoppy bitterness. Fresh. Forward. Pleasant lingering; dry finish. Modest carbonation and some light Belgian lace. Very nice.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass with a good deal of activity, lots of rising effervescence, a hazed, light gold hue, billowy, white head foam, and patchy, clingy lacing. The aroma started with ripe apple & pear, a hint of spice, then offended a bit with hints of metal and fels naptha soapiness. The lively, seltzery carbonation almost got in the way of the taste, but did seem to help intensify the earthy, somewhat lingering hop bitterness. With soft malt, and a little light in body & texture, the finish was mildly dry. When everything settled, and I let the beer rest a bit, it finally exposed some fair sessionability, but was not enough to make my "go to" Kolsch list.

This beer is nice enough without really being anything special. It pours golden yellow with a thin white head. No real lacing. It’s slightly carbonated. It has a bit of sharpness and a slight hoppiness, and while I could enjoy drinking this, given other choices, I would probably try something else.
