4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This Kolsch, true-to-style, exhibits both ale and lager characteristics. Biscuity pale malt flavor, subtle fruity ale yeast esters with mild hop profile. Nicely balanced. A great American interpretation of a classic German Kolsch!

~Bready malt aroma with berry fruitiness.
~Pours a very clear light golden color with small white head that disappears.
~Bready taste with pleasant spicy hoppiness and sulfury.
~Medium light bodied with high CO2, lingering spicy hop finish.
~refreshing. Easy to drink and quite tasty. I wish some of the fruitier notes came out more in the flavor. Im rating this from a bottle, but I had it on draft and remember it being better on draft.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber at Taylor’s Market in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear light gold with a small creamy white head. Aroma is bready with a bit of citrus. Med body, almost. Flavor is bready and the hop is very interesting. It seems noble like kolsch from Koln, but ... The overall hop finish brought the very, very old Olympia beer into my head. Or at least what my head remembers from a spring day in 1960! Finishes bready and arguably more tastily hopped than a number of kolsches from Koln. Doesn’t that resonate!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured one finger of head on a clear, light yellow colored body.
The aroma is pleasant. Dry grain with a touch of lemon.
The taste is nice: mild lemon bitterness, a hint of malt sweetness. Simple but good.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
A tasty beer for a warm California day.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is clean lager. Some light fruitiness like passion fruit or mangos? Its light and tropicaly fruity, very nice for the summer. Palate is clean and finishes with the fruitiness, not the graininess some kolsches finish with. Very good, probably my favorite kolsch!
