3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2011 Bottle. Poured a hazy yellow-amber in color with a small white fizzy head that was fully diminishing in a matter of seconds and virtually had no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was quite mild but I did sense a light grain malt, a mild dose of a piney hop and a light soapy yeast with a hint of citrus and a touch of apricot.
It tasted lightly hoppy and a little sour with a note of citrus in the beginning and finished with a nice mild hoppiness and had a hint of the apricot and citrus at the end. The flavor was left lingering on the taste buds for a nice long time after the swallow allowing for full enjoyment of this brew.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a nice lively carbonation.
Overall a nice light beer with a good fruity finish, definitely would be nice on a hot summer day after cutting the lawn.

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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very light and slightly hoped drink. 12 oz bottle. Touch if hay and light malt body and flavor. Definitely not entertaining enough to reach for again.

Poured from bottle. Clear golden yellow with a white head. Smells very nice. Has a light bitter taste and enough bite to give this beer some personality. Smooth and enjoyable.
