Attack: crisp, half-creamy light fizzy mouthfeel,
Mid-palate: (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) barley, light malt, red apple

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Single 341 ml bottle from Liquor Depot, served in a straight-sided goblet. The last review of this April Fool’s Day 2015, a good day in my neck of the woods to stay cloistered indoors and have a few beers, as the wind gusts are reaching 100-120 kilometers per hour. I blame climate change for these wicked winds. Anyhow... Pours a nice golden straw hue with lots of carbonation and a thin white cap that leaves a few lace islands. Wow, is this ever carbonated! It’s very visible, generous, and constant. Nose features lightly sweet malts and a very faint hop presence; flavor is lightly sweet malts with a very faint hop presence. And...that’s about it. Thin-bodied, clean finish. It’s extraordinarily...ordinary. In (my) perfect world, this would be the base makeup of all macro light lagers, before any signature additions or subtractions. Were it a buck-a-beer brand, I’d tattoo its logo on my shoulder for being superior. But, as a micro or craft brew, well...a little more is expected, right? Eh, no matter, this very low-key kolsch gets high praise for just being good, clean, and eminently drinkable. Nice stuff!

Bottle. Light orange peel hop aroma. Pours light golden in colour with minimal head. Grassy hop flavours with faint citrus notes. Medium bodied with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice and light, moderately refreshing (a little less than in the pure Kolsch vein). Nice grassy taste. A worthy addition to the lineup.

On draft at the brewery. Yellow pour, slight haze, with a white head. Grain, light malt, watery, a bit grassy, and notes of apple. Ok

ENG: 341ml bottle from old Liquor Depot store on Whyte, Edmonton. Poured into a glass have very light yellow, little bit cloudy color with almost no head. Have mild malty aroma, maybe a bit citrusy. Taste is malty, but very pleasant. It’s quite similar to lagers, but much milder and a bit more hoppy than typical european lagers. Perfect beer for summer as a refresher. ///~~~////~~~/// ///~~~/////~~~/// ///~~~////~~~/// PL: Butelka 341ml zakupiona w byłym sklepie sieci Liquor Depot w Edmonton. Przelana do szklanki, jasna słomkowa barwa, nieco mętna, praktycznie bez piany. Aromat lekko słodowy, odrobinę cytrynowy. W smaku także słody, ale bardzo przyjemne. Piwo przypomina lagery, ale znacznie delikatniejsze i dodatkowo bardziej chmielowe od typowych europejskich lagerów. Idealne orzeźwiające piwo na lato.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Very light, pale straw yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet, apple cider with some grainy and grassy notes. Flavour is grassy and a touch floral with some apple notes. More flavour than expected actually, but not great. Definitely a german style. Pretty unremarkable.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy straw colour. Not getting much of an aroma on this beer. Taste is sweet malt with a touch of hop bitterness. Pretty good beer.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very weak aroma of grape, pale straw color with a very short lasting white well laced head. Tastes better than the aroma would lead you to believe. A crisp slightly tart taste of citrus. Light bodied slightly watery feel with a mild finish of citrus and chalk.
