3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber thanks to Brewdad. Pours a clear golden color with a thick white head that dissipates and leaves some lacing. A sweet nose of honey and some noble hops. Very smooth and tasty; sweet grains, honey, light bitter spicy hops, finishes bitter and dry. Super easygoing. Very good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
First off I’d like to say how surprising it is to find a locally bottled Kolsch not produced by Hale’s. Served in a thin 7 oz kolsch glass it pours a bright golden with brilliant highlights and a lasting thick white 1" head. Very lively and fizzy, effervescent. Pils malt dominates with a toasted crackerlike aroma, slight precursors to DMS, grassy and lightly floral hop notes, hay., A sweet pilsner malt flavor, toasty and clean, a smooth but bracing bitterness lingers, a slight buttery toast note but not diacetylitic. The taster is left with a firm bitter note that segways into a clean finish, tailing into a citrus note?. Very similar to many a german pils with more bitterness, quite lively on the palate. A very good showing for a very difficult style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle pours a straw in color with a small white head and some spotted lacing. Aroma is grainy malts with some grassy hops. Taste is grainy malt sweetness with a sharp grassy hop bitterness finishing clean. Light to medium body and some nice carbonation. This is quite a refreshing kolsch style brew which was quite enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light color. Light barley malt taste. Low abv and low in taste. Probably well within the style but is underwhelming.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Straw golden colored with pillowy white head. Aroma is a mix of barley, citrus hops and honey malt notes. The flavor is predominately cereal malt, lemon citrus and grains along with a little bit of grassy hops in the background. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with heavy carbonation and a clean, bitter finish with a slightly grainy aftertaste. Overall, a light and refreshing Kölsch that would go well with spicy food and BBQ.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Aroma and flavor: Like a German pilsner with a good hoppy bittering. Less bland than some of the German Kolsch’s I’ve had.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
22 oz. bottle, pours clear straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma is quite funky, with corn, grass and hay - pretty weak. Flavour is quite piss watery, with straw, hay, corn - seems made with cheap adjuncts. Very bad.
