2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Poured a clear gold with an orange hue and a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a strong citrus peel note with quite a sweet grain backing. Flavor seemed a bit off, especially the citrus note and it did not combine well with the sweet grains.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy, light orange with a large white head that is mostly diminishing. Malt-centric nose - some vanilla cookies and malted milk - with subtle lemon/orange citrus notes and fresh-cut straw underneath. Mildly sweet flavor with mild sour notes that grow throughout the flavor profile. Definite metallic flavors in the middle-to-late flavor, with some husky wheat and grains in the finish. I seem to pick up more sour flavors as it warms. Thanks to my sister-in-law for the bottle.

12oz bottle. Poured a medium and cloudy amberish color with a smaller sized head. Aromas of grains with some toastiness. Tastes of corn and grains. Not great but after spending 6+hrs out in 95+ degree weather, this one went down like water!

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bland style in my opinion, but a good brew within type. Cloudy gold color and minimal head. Light aroma, with no hops. Slight malt flavor with a touch of "tang".

Bottle courtesy of shawnm213. Pours copper with a thin off white head. Smells of earth, some sweet malt, dark fruit. Tastes of sweet caramel, some perfumy hints, earthy finish. Not a kolsch by any stretch of the imagination.

On tap at the Blues, Brews and BBQs festival in St. Joseph, MI. Poured hazy blonde with a thin off-white head and a toffee aroma. This is a very light tasting kolsch. It is refreshing and creamy, but with no sweetness and just a little hop bitterness.
