355ml bottle that pours a light golden color with a finger of white head that leaves a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with some cereal grains and herbs. Taste is fruity and malty sweetness with a herbal hop bitterness. Light bodied with modest carbonation and a nice clean finish. A nice representation of the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle- Pours a golden color with a fairly small head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of fruits and grain with a bit of spice and sweetness in the background. Starts with a nice crispness that becomes a mild fruit sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp and refreshing. Pleasant beer that goes down easy. Goes best with a warm summer day or BBQ.

Curve Ball did not surprise me with any delectable aromatics or heavy flavor. It was just a plain ole simple mild blonde ale.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Very bready aroma. Deep yellow color, thin white head. Flavor of pale malts and a sharp, spicy hop. Very sharp, very spicy. Lots of pale malts and a huge bread character. A hint of fruit in the finish, even some earthy grass notes, and some cereal grains.

Copper blonde pour into thin white head that quickly dissipates into a ring of bubbles. Aroma of wet cardboard. Initial flavor of barnyard straw that slowly fades into dirty carpet.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of grain and gravel. Orange color and typical bubbly kolsch look. Some bitter elements, but overall it’s kind of watery. Ditto for the weight and feel of the beer as well. Not so much a curveball as a sinker.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Was told to watch out for the hops when trying this...ha. Pour out of 12 oz bottle was clear yellow, thin white head, aroma brought notes of some biscuit, grainy notes, slight spice and a touch of grassy notes as well. Taste was pretty watered down, some slight corn and grain, hints of spice just as it finishes fairly dry, but without any flavor.
