3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Occidental. Crystal clear and golden. Light floral aroma. Tastes crisp, biscuity, malty, and just slightly sweet. Really refreshing. Quite possibly the best kölsch I have had.

16oz can pours a clear gold with some bright white head. Nose is weird, dusty, some bright hay, some lemon, a little old couch. Flavor is lightly sweet, hay, straw, lemon, a little metal. Clean finish.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Blond color, compact small head. The aroma is fresh, a bit bready, but too light. Light mouthfeel, dry; it has a bit of straws, cereals, and very light grass. Ordinary bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at VCBW 2014 pouring a pale straw color with a small white head and only a few specks of lacing. Aroma is light fruits and grains. Taste is a light fruity and malty sweetness with a grassy and spicy hop bitterness. Light bodied with decent carbonation providing a pleasant sensation on the palate. Well done Kolsch that I highly recommend to others.

Pale golden with abundant foamy head. Aroma is mostly grains, cereal, taste is pure grain, malt, some hops present in the finish, very dry and chalky. A decent representation of the German original.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent representation of the style. Bit bolder than your average Kolsch with a nice grass note and hop presence. Like the tall boy can!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from tallboy to glass. Crystal straw hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is clean, slightly sulphur, white peppercorn, straw. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a light body and high carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with an astringent sulphur following and CO2 sharpness in the finish. Overall this is a nice summer kolsch.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark gold, aroma is s bit of noble and a bit of sweet pale malt...harvest time! Taste is way off...sour, grainy/husky, not enough bitterness. Nowhere near kölsch and it’s not much of a golden ale either.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is exactly what I hope for out of a Kolsch. The very slight sweet body nestled in fruity tones is balanced brilliantly with the touch of hops. Nothing overpowering. Very tasteful. Highly recommend.

Golden pour. Very clean, kolsch. Some citrus characteristics without having too much hop impact. Easy drinking, refreshing.
