2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap in Destin. It was happy hour, so I’m glad I only paid $3.00 for this one. Weak, flavorless, missing the funk of a real Kölsch and the bite of an American pale ale.

I really enjoy this beer fresh, right off the bright tank (I’ve been lucky enough to catch Mark and Rogers at the brewery twice now to do this!). Obviously a Kolsch and not a pale ale, and as such I love it.

Draft - Lemony citrus and grains. Pale gold with a thin white head. Skunky up front bitterness and a bit of grain. Clean and slightly sweet finish. Nice as a Kolsch, but not a great pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
FROM NOTES: August 12, ’12
This beer is missing some hop bitterness and aroma. Banana notes and grassy notes most prevalent in the taste as well as the nose. Moderate carbonation. Once in a lifetime was plenty.
