One of the better kolsch’s I’ve come across. Not typically a fan of the style but this pours nicely w/ a fairly faint aroma. The flavor has a decent bite to it & isn’t nearly as bland as most in this style. It’s ok!

Straw colored pour, bright white head. Clean and crisp. Very easy to drink. Pale malts, hay, grassy hops.

Super clean and fresh, like fresh linen off the line. Some honey, mineral water and a soft hop finish. Probably good for a pre lube summer sess.

Aroma is pale/grainy malts and an almost Macro edge. The flavor is pale/grainy malts, mild sweetness, earthy notes, light citrus and a beery finish. Had a Macro edge to it, decent enough though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Type: 22-oz. bottle
Glass: Modern Times pint glass
From: My cousin, who got it from BevMo! in Santa Barbara, Calif.
Purchased: April 20, 2014
Consumed: April 25, 2014
Poured a yellow, golden, mostly clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of white head. Slowly moving bubbles coming up from the bottom. Just a few spots of lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average-to-minimal retention.
Thought pilsner with the initial smell, not a Kölsch like Beer Advocate had it at. Smelled biscuit, bread, corn, hay, honey, cereal, Corn Pops, crackers and some spices.
Tasted pretty close to what I thought it would have after taking a whiff, but not quite as good. Very dry on the tongue. Got corn, bread, biscuit, hay, cereal, German spices, honey, grass and slight apple.
Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish.
A very tasty brew. I would have another once for sure.

Appearance looked very generic. Aroma was very light and taste was not very memorable. This just seemed like a generic blonde beer.

Nice look with long lasting head. Aroma is very light as is the taste. Not a bad beer for sipping, but far from great.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
16oz on tap in ’Quinns’ the bar inside San Diego’s Sheraton on 17th March 2014. Golden and clear, white collar and wispy head, carbonation bubbles rising through. No aroma and very little actual taste, typical Kolsch I suppose. There is a light malt lead, with a mild sweetness but overall I found this boring and nothing like a real beer from Koln ( which I also struggle to find flavour or real enjoyment in).

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden color, moderate head/lace/retention. Aroma is grass, spicy hops, lightly floral, lighter fruits. Lighter bodied, quite drinkable.

Well rounded light beer. Slightly bitter but no change in after taste, nothing unpleasant to sneak up on you.
