2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Another disappointing beer from S&A. Lacks the necessary chalk and minerals that are so integral to a good kolsch. Really this just looks like a pale lager. Woolies have to try harder!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear mid gold, little or no gas but fizz on the tongue, no head. Flat-ish taste, little palate but a slight yeasty finish. Unremarkable.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle - Pours straw with a short lived white head, looks completely flat. Very little aroma, maybe a bit of biscuit or cereal. some cereal taste but nothing much too it. very watery on the palate.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
From a 345ml bottle on 22/8/2013. Pours a clear light golden with a tiny head. Has a quite unpleasant aroma featuring urine and stale bready malt. The flavour is similarly uninspiring featuring more stale bread and grain. The body and carbonation are medium. I think some of the other beers in this series have been harshly treated on here. Not this one though - it’s horrible.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Flat head with no bubbles at all. Water and hints of dolpy malts. Bland and dull. A poor attempt at a Kolsch. Drain pour for this one.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
I don’t think I’ve ever tried a proper Koelsch. This one, I agree with the rater below, does taste like a poorly-hopped pale ale. - poorly as in the choice of hops, as it is very herbal and not too bitter, sweet for a long time, until a nasty metalic bitterness expands through the palate. Far from pleasant.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a clear pale golden colour with a two-finger white foamy head that diminished quickly. No lacing. Moderate carbonation. Aroma not strong and of malt and trace of grain. Taste initially sweet malt followed by very mild bitterness. Light body (tending towards watery).

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml botte from Dan Murphy’s. pours a very clear pale amber colour with a very white head that levels out. Grassy straw malt aroma with a very "beery" flavour.
