COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Point Three Kings is a highly drinkable golden colored Kölsh-Style Ale inspired by the story of the three kings whose remains reside in the Köln Cathedral in Köln Germany. Köln is the birthplace of Kölsh ale, often referred to as the ‘crown jewel of brewing art’. Elegant and well-balanced Three Kings is hand-crafted with a delicate fruity aroma, clean soft maltiness, and crisp subtle hopping – an adventure fit for a king."

This stuff is by no means extraordinary, but I don’t agree with its putrid ratings. There’s a pale yellow color and a fruit smell at first, but no foam. It has a flat mouthfeel. It has a tame kolsch flavor that’s sweet and light. Bananas? It’s a little like High Life, except not as bubbly, because there’s only one Champaign of Beers. I would give this a "C" grade because it’s drinkable but not something I’d choose to get again, given other more exciting options.

Bottle poured a clear gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of straw, earthiness and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, earthiness and a hint of citrus with a crisp dry finish.

cheap (4160) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Clear pale lager lookin thing in a frosted glass. Decent white head at first. Taste comes across mild initially then there is this processed thing sticking its head up in the middle of big slugs. Lots of visible co2 makes it look attractive and most of that sizzle carries over to the palate. Intersting story in the description. Label is a well detailed pastel lookin drawing. Finish is not too bad lager.

weitz15 (382) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Really smooth ale; usually I don’t take kindly to a Kölsch, but this one gets by. Light on the carbonation, smooth finish. The fruity aroma was mildly present if at all.

DocLock (7976) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle from Craft. Poured golden canary colored with 1-finger white clingy head. Nose is pale malt, hops, fruity citrus. Tasted hoppy and citric, with some sweet bready corny pale malt, medium palate heft, and late apricotty notes. Not bad.

fidelis83 (1996) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Pours a clear pale gold with a thin bright white head. Aroma is cereal grain, floury biscuit dough, light fruity notes and a little yeasty tartness. Flavor is cereal grain, more floury dough, mineral notes, light floral hops and leafy notes. Palate is light and dry with a moderate strength, sharp carbonation. Pretty rough around the edges, but still nicely refreshing.

Rastacouere (6135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2012
I’m following Captain Lawrence’s Kolsch with this one and the difference is stricking. While the fizzy golden hue are similar, the vague white head quickly vanishes atop this one. Little pils malt flavour extraction shine through, the aroma, and taste eventually, being dominated by the unclean fruit esters. By its mere lightness and general softness, it remains fairly drinkable, but not very pleasurable. In mouth, an obvious husky, tannic grain character is the main distraction from the otherwise simple, straightforwardly fruity flavor profile. Rough, borderline astringent finish. Little structure as the bubbles are not supported by much firmness, giving the palate allures of mineral water. Limited leafy hop character. Rather dull.

bhensonb (11364) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. Pours light gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is lightly bready with a hint of citrus or spice. Near med body. Flavor is rather sweet, and bready, and there’s not a lot, if any, hop. Ok minimal hop. It’s not crisp and citrus like I recall Kolsch ales. Beats Bud Light by a long way tho.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2012
This beer pours a clear golden color with a medium fizzy white head that evaporates steadily. Sparse small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt and mild hops. Light body with flavors of grainy malt and grassy hops, plus a touch of fruit. The finish is sweet and bready up front with a short lightly hopped aftertaste. Barely average overall.

Pours hazy dark yellow... Aroma of lemon spice and bread...taste is a bitter clean lemon grain with a tiny bite at the end...easy drinking...
