Bomber shared by maniac. How have I gone this long without rating a Ninkasi beer? Pours a hazy straw with a thin white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of strong skunk, grassy hops, pale bready malt. The taste is doughy, grainy malt, grassy and floral hops. Thin-medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

Bottle. thanks Maniac. Gold pour with a small head. Nose is pretty bready. Fresh baked bread with some apple. Taste is actually pretty bitter. Earthy grassy hop. Pepper. More bread and apple. Medium body, active carb.

It pours a nice golden color with little head. A skunky smell right off the bat. A smooth easy drinker with a little it of hoppiness. Decent but not my favorite.

Oscbert (1062) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 2, 2014
~Earthy hop aroma with grain, slightly sulfury, not much else. ~Pours a very clear golden yellow with creamy lasting white head. ~Earthy hop flavor with light fruitiness, some diacetyl, but not in a bad way, grainy and wheaty, refreshing. sulfur ~light medium bodied with high CO2, crisp grainy finish. ~Enjoyable beer. Wish it had some more fruity character that ive gotten in other Kolsch style beers. Aroma was pretty weak.

RedSox2004 (1328) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Hazy straw yellow with a one-finger white head and decent lace. Aromas of bready malt and herbal and maybe a touch of medicinal hops. Flavor is similar, as the bready malt leads, offset by earthy and grassy hop, accompanied by a touch of lemon. Light to medium body, generous carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a clean finish.

Bomber. A great Kolsch style beer. Great golden cloudy color. It looks like its glowing. Very crisp and easy drinking. Smooth tasting and drinking.

22oz bottle dingy pale yellow and a full white head. Papery noble hop aroma. Soft malt flavors with a little corn and vege. Slightly sweet light and a little pale lagerish. A decent law mower beer I suppose.

Bottle. This one seems like a run of the mill kolsch, as I find relatively little variance in the style. It is fairly crisp and refreshing, with corn and grains. Nothing remarkable.
