3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at New Holland. My first try at a kolsch, ive been putting it off for a little while now.
Dont know if this is the best example i can get or not, but i enjoyed it pretty well. Big fluffy head and golden color. Decent aroma, but the flavor was a lot more. Lots of grassy notes throughout, which slowly die off leaving a heavy aftertaste. Could’ve done without the huge aftertaste, but the refreshment of the initial taste will keep me coming back for more.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2016 This is actually a fabulously tasting beer. The subtle citrus flavor is great. It’s lightly bitter and medium sweetness make it very smooth going down and easy to enjoy with any meal, particularly fish and chicken.

Pours up a golden orange color. Minimal white head. Aroma includes cereal, honey, pastry, and a hint of yeast funk. Taste is smooth with a creamy concoction of dough, cereal, yeasty funk and some slight prickly bubbles. Finishes with a slight hop taste. Not bad.

Maybe expected a little more from the brewer, if not the Americanized version of the style. Pleasant mellow citrus and bread flavor and aroma, and a crisp enough body, just a little too boring and one dimensional.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a fair head that fades quickly. Aroma of grass, with mild citrus and malt. Taste of citrus, malt sweetness and trace of grain. Fairly mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp clean and refreshing. Nice beer good for a couple.
