2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Twisted Jimmys. Clean nose, not much to it. Light sweet character but not much else. Hazy golden yellow with thin white head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts clean, a bit sweet. Some carbonic fizz, mild honey. Light hop character. Clean finish and after. More like a golden ale or blond than a kölsch.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Into a stange, this was a pretty good looking somewhat trying to be a hazy burnt yellow to orange color with a slight one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute.
The smell had a fairly good enticing honey aroma just trying to get me to want more.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there as much as it wanted to be almost perfect but wasn’t.
Overall, for the most part, this was good for the style and good to me.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled on draft at Dad’s Pub this beer poured a hazy yellow-gold color with a large foamy off white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was honey, basic lager, a bit tangy and a touch of sour mash. The flavor was tangy sour mash bread dough and a bit of honey. Short finish. Light to medium body. Not good.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE. Pours a nice see through gold with little head, didn’t get much off the nose, typical Kolsch. A sweetish taste to start with a lovely dash of honey at the back end, maybe a tad light/watery but still good to drink on a summers day!
