3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear pale gold in color with a huge (3-4 finger) white fluffy head that was mostly diminishing and had some fair sticky lacing.
The aroma was of light grain and straw malts, floral and grassy hops and a funky soapy yeast, and had a hint of spice and a mild citrus (lemon) presence.
The taste had a nice light crisp grainy malt flavor with a very mild, almost undetectable citrus note early on, with the taste becoming mildly bitter and a tad hoppy and having just a bit of spiciness at the end. The flavor lasted a short time proceeding the swallow with a slight mild bitterness left behind.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery texture and a tickly carbonation.
Overall a very nice tasting Kölsch, that had a nice bold flavor with a slightly mild bitterness. This was an extremely enjoyable and satisfying brew for this style...

Bottle, shared at the lake with Parksy and others on May long weekend. Medium gold, average white head. Grainy profile, a bit sweet, a touch of yeast, but pretty bland. Not awful, just dull.

Clear golden with a white head. Malty with fruit and a crisp noble profile. Clean mouth. Easy kolsch. Highly enjoyable if you enjoy the style.

Nice golden straw color, thin fizzy head. No lacing. Nice light, easy drinking beer with notes of honey, straw, and floral notes. Mild spicy grassiness. Yum!

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 05.07.14.
A: Straw yellow. Completely see through. 1/2 finger head.
S: Flower, honey. Sweet smelling.
O: This smelled like a good summer beer. It was way too watery though. Actually, it could be better described as water with a slight sweetness to it. There was very little flavor to it, so it was a drain pour.

On tap. Pours clear light straw. Moderate head that flattens out, lots of glass coating lacing. Smell is grassy, lemon dish soap and slight hop. Taste is clean with some lighter grass notes, some lemon with some mild hop for balance. Easy drinking but light on flavour.

A bitter tang of hoppiness and very little complexity. Not much going on here for a craft beer. Gorgeous pour with a lovely full head. Reminded me of your buddy’s early home brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pour, top pop sounded like it had lots of pressure. Huge white foamy head over light amber body. Aroma is lager like, with a hint of saison. Taste is mostly light malt and hops bitter, a bit of spice, or carbonation. Body is light, ample carbonation. Finish us clean bitter. Just not much going on here, kinda boring.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A real simple but very nice brassy golden/bronze body, clear with some mix of rising cola fast carbonation and slow rising pin head bubbles. White rock head settles nicely and slowly, with some ring like lacing. Very beautiful looking Kolsch.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drinkable and solid. Slightly sweet. Deviates from the Kolsch standard -- perhaps that’s why they say "Kolsch style." Nevertheless, enjoyable for a low ABV beer.
