Tap @ Owl N’ Thistle: Needed a break from IPA’s and this did the job. Easy to drink with a large malt presence and aftertaste of Cheerios. Hard to complain about that!

Nice brew. Pours a light straw gold colour with a thick two fingers of dense white head. Strong carbonation in the body with a light hazy body. The aroma is grainy, cereal malts, a bit of spicy and grassy hops. Light sweetness, mild cereal grains and light bitterness. Nice german style brew.

650ml bottle pours a clear straw color with a finger of white head that settles to reveal some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is grass with some light citrus and spice. Taste is a light spicy and grassy hop bitterness with a malty sweetness. Slightly grainy mouth feel. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, this is a well crafted brew, nicely balanced and tasty. Recommended for a light, refreshing beer for a hot summer’s eve.

(22oz bottle) - Huge amounts of carbonation coating the glass. Clear light golden body with white foamy head. Aroma of grass and green leaves. Lightly bitter flavor. Slightly sulphury. Just what I needed as this hectic day wound down.

12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Clear, bright gold appearance with a lacy white head and active carbonation. Aroma of toasted grain, pale malt, floral notes, earth, bread and light yeast. Similar flavor, a nice clean malt flavor with light to mild hop bitterness. Average body and a crisp feel with a light dry finish. Overall, it’s easy to drink, a nice kölsch.

Slightly estery on the nose which is surprising. Quite sweet, a little buttery, a nice fresh and mellow finish. There are better kolsches in Oregon for your money.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ok, an American brewed Kolsch, here we go. 12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear thin gold body that supports a cobweb-y white head of foam. The floral hops and candied lime blended with cracker and grainy malts and a bit of apple esters. The taste starts with a modest punch of bitter spicy and floral hops and then sliding into thin lime like citrus hoppiness. It stays bitter with floral and spicy and lime like hops right into the finish where sweetness wells up and de-rails the experience to a certain extent. All in all this is a decent American brewed rendition but coming up short to the real thing.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained white head, with slight lacing, over a clear yellow (SRM 3) effervescent body.........nose is light malts, hints of light colored fruits (pear, apple), light herbal hops, balanced......taste is very lightly floral sweet, light apple, pear, finishing with a light bitterness.....mouth feel, light almost watery body, no alcohol, high carbonation with crisp acid. This is a light, clean, crisp beer which meets this light refreshing style quite nicely. BJCP 8/3/15/5/7

Bottle. A delicious effervescent, grassy, malt-heavy, smooth, and sweet kolsch. Light alcohol content makes this a really drinkable, yet flavorful, beer.
