Kolsch styles just don’t get enough love. They lack the huge hop flavor or high alcohol of the imperial styles, choosing instead to go for a more subtle and mild flavor. This one is rather grassy on the nose and light citrus on the tongue. Mildly sweet and infinitely drinkable.

The first time I had this beer I loved it, definitely one of the smoothest beers. And instantly became my mom’s favorite. But the 2nd time I had it, it tasted completely different, like a skunk beer, and i kept drinking it to see if I can get the taste I did the first time. So I’m not sure how I rate it, I would love to try it again sometime.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Oh sir samual adams how long its been since I have tried a beer from you! Pours that average lager look or light clear amber with an almost fizzy creamed head. Aromas of light jasmine, slight caramel, light grass, and light hay. Flavors are lightly grassy/hay, slight corn, slight grain, and light hint of floral(hard to see it as jasmine on the palate). Theres a light bitter/dry finish with a grain/corn like aftertaste. Bland mostly. Adams sure does have a wide variety to offer. I still remember this being one of the first companies I started trying for micros aside from the masses of lagers. Thank you samuel adams for being the first crossroad into micros!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light gold with a white head with no lacing. Smells of sweet malt and grass and floral notes. Not much on the taste besides sweet honey . Mouthfeel is light and low carbonation. Not a very good beer, close to a drain pour.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This tasted with Bar-B-Que from Buz and Neds. The beer poured a golden color with small head that dissapated into a small white collar. Some floral notes on the nose but not much. No bitterness maybe some sweetness. Soft carbonation and smooth finish with some citrus.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a crystal clear yellow-gold color with a medium sized foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was perfumey, herbal, a bit floral and citric - all vague and somewhat light. The flavor was tangy biscuit, perfume, floral hops and hints of hibiscus and pepper. Medium length tangy perfume and herb finish. Light to medium body. Ok.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Always happy to try a new Kolsch!!! Pours clear honey-fold, thin white head, really nice lacing. Nose is clean grain, some light sourness, no hint of the promised flowers, and no hint of the "gunsmoke" character I associate with good Kolsch... Nevermind, the smoke just showed up, the beer just needed to warm up a bit. Flavours are cramy, chalky, and round, with nice light smoke, rich mineral, and a surprisingly creamy body. Nice stuff, although the nose could use a bit of work.

I’m getting a floral and grassy aroma to this one. Much stronger smell than I expected from it. Very light and easy drink, going down nicely. I actually get the nice hint of citrus they refer to in the description, which is nice.
