3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice, fresh tasting Kolsch style. Not hoppy, has a slightly citrus and herb flavor. Goes down easy, but has more substance than Bud, etc...

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A - Pours a hazy pale yellow with a 1 finger white head that diminishes pretty quick.
S - Old grass, a dose of grain, lemons, earthy minerals.
T - Sweet grain, lemons, minerals, yeasty with bits of fruit esters. A pinch of bitterness on the back of the tongue. Finishes semi-wet.
M - Fizzy carbonation, light bodied.
A refreshing beer on a hot day. Wouldn’t be my first pick for a lawnmower beer though. Doesn’t quite live up to the style profile.

From bottle. Pours a light gold without much head or lacing. Slightly fizzy. Nose is wheat with a little alcohol. Smooth delivery, but not much flavor. A little thin, but aptly named--would be perfect for working in the yard on a hot afternoon.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Taste is very light and easy to drink - not a huge amount of flavor to it, actually. Nose is a little floral and sweet, which I found weird. OK.

Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting creamy white head. Aromas of straw, bread, light earthiness and a hint of yeast. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of strae, bread, light earthiness and light yeast with a smooth dry finish.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent yellow colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was musty and malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
American breweries seem to have the hardest time brewing Koelschs of any German style. This one doesn’t really stand out from the pack, unless you consider it hanging around at the back of the pack. Sort of stale, certainly sessionable, if it only tasted better. Picked this one up in NOLA in 2013.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at Buffalo Wild Wings in Lubbock, TX.
The beer is clear and light golden with a pure white head. The aroma is mild, offering grain, slightly sweet, a hint of fruit. A bit of toast and mild sweetness in the flavor. Pretty bland, but a good chaser for washing down some hot wings.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours clear goldish yellow with light white fizz. The aroma is slightly sweet very musty cereal grain and some dog piss. The flavor follows mostly the same, kind of a slightly musty staleish cereal grain with light refreshing sweetness behind it and just a touch of earthy bitter. Simple and easy to drink, it does the job of being slightly better than your summer "lawnmower" beer but that doesn’t take much. It finishes clean which is about all that saves it from falling into a bad bottom tier and has enough carbonation and grain that it isn’t watery with enough sweetness to carry it. It does improve through a glass but that isn’t a suggestion to let it warm up.
