3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a straw-colored gold, with a decent thick head that tbecomes rocky after time and lends good lacing. Aroma is sweet and mild, with a slight hop. Flavor is sweet, very slight grassy hops, and an enjoyble toast and jam flavor. A bit different than others in the style that I have sampled.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light golden color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet and soapy with some straw. Has a slightly malty flavor and a tad burst of bitterness in the middle. Overall, very pleasant, but nothing extremely secial. Could go a little bit maltier to make me happy.

Pours a clear and light copper/gold color, with a quick dissipating head. Aroma of honey-nut oats, apple, wine, light hops. Light bitterness, sweetish malt, apple. Slight stickiness in finish, metallic, lingering malts. A respectable Kolsch.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Aroma is flowery, slight apple, slight hops. Pours a transparent yellow with a head that’s about half an inch tall then disappears quickly. Not much in the initial taste but has a slight apple, slightly sweet, slightly bitter finish. All the taste for this beer is in the finish. Nice balance in the finish, but really lacking in flavor otherwise. Someone says this beer epitomizes the style. If it does, then I’m not a big fan of this style. It’s not bad, it’s just rather boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet malt aroma with hint of apricot - for some reason initial smelled like bleach. A bit on the drier side than most Koelschs. Seems a bit bland. Not my favorite Koelsch.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Heavy dough aroma with a bit of bleach mixed in. Sharp hop bite but still very clean and refreshing indeed. The finish is drier than I expected.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours yellow with a lacing white head. Smells of sweet malt a touch of fruit. Sweet flavor with a bit of tart hop finish, and the yeasts shines through. Not bad, not great.
