3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewpub. Mild saaz and noble hop aroma, lots of pine and herbals, if you dig. Flavor is sweetish, corny, flower stems, with beet notes. A bit off kilter.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very pale straw colour. The aroma is sort of spicy with a lot of corianderish citrus and fresh cut grass. Low carbonation which makes this seem sweeter than it probably is. It tastes a little like a filtered/unspiced wheat beer. Grassy hoppiness but it gets a little bit soapy as I keep drinking it. Meh

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Brewpub. Clear light yellow body with a small but sturdy white head. I’m not a fan of the way they stack wet pint glasses, as there’s no carbonation in the glass. Aroma is a handfull of fresh hops. Flavor is the greenest kolsch I’ve ever had. A bit thin in body as it tastes like a light glass of hop water. A little soapy doesn’t help but it ain’t horrible either. After asking the bartender, this cask was dry hopped.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hand pumped from a cask at the Brewpub. Pours clear gold with a white head. Lemony citric hop aroma. Same with the flavor, lemony citrus, decently balanced. Maybe a very light hnit of soap. Not bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft: I’m surprised at finding out this was a Kolsch. The description at the brewery said it was a Golden Ale. It poured a golden yellow color with not much head. The aroma was light hops and citrus. The flavor was weird. It started out smooth and sweet with hint of coriander. Then it finished by tasting like metal. Not a beer I’d ever drink again. I struggled to get this down.

I think mike oberdorf said it best: "WHAAAAA?" An average of 3.92? This was mediocre at best. Actually, it tasted like a slightly less hoppy version of their BPA. I thought it was a golden/blonde ale. A Kolsch? I highly doubt it. I’ll be happy to take this beer down a peg or two.
