Disappointing from a brewer that gave us some tasty beers. Lot of bubbles but hardly any impact on the nose. Not much on the palate either. Very watery.

Drank from bottle. Some light hops, malt and sour fruit flavours. Watery, unpleasant taste. Not a good example of a kolsch, and just not good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale gold body, slight haze, white head drops away.
Mild aroma; grainy malts with a touch of floral hop.
Medium body & carbonation, dry overall impression.
Grainy malts continue on the body, light cracker biscuit flavour with a light sweetness. Floral herbaceous hops linger briefly on a subtle bitter finish.
A example of the style, somewhat underwhelming but quite clean and drinkable.

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.

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.

2.1 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!

2.3 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).
