3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Went to a friends house this last weekend for a cookout, and he had a mixed pack of SA brews. This one caught my eye as I am a sucker for Kolsch-style beers. 12oz bottle.
Pours a moderately dark sunny gold. A small cap of white foam rests atop. Sweet floral nose - cut flowers, malt, citrus zip. Cool, crisp mouthfeel. Bubbles add a refreshing wash on the palate. The added flower-characteristic to this beer is notable in the flavor. Definitive herbal notes, but they are delicate and add a nice adjustment to the profile. Biscuity malt and a fresh finish of lemon. Mild bitterness make this one an easy beer to down on a warm afternoon. Nice work, BBC.

Clear light golden color with a moderate sized off-white head. Mild aromas with hints of dough, pale caramel and touch of citrus. Fairly thick feel. Mild herbals with a lavender flare. Lightly citric in the finish and into the linger. Fairly clean, but not the crispness that I would like to see in this style. 3/11

"Not bad! Not a style I usually care for, but the floral citrus aspects brought on by the jasmine are quite nice. Otherwise a fairly non descript light beer. Nice for summer."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer from BA review on 5-7-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a slightly orange hint. Upon pouring it has a medium white head which fades at a moderate pace to give a small amount of lacing.
Smell – Citrus notes mixed with a somewhat biscuit aroma are the base. With these aromas are some floral and sweet caramel aromas as well.
Taste – A drier biscuit malt flavor is the first to meet the tongue. A little bit of citrus taste works its way into the taste early on. Hints of lemon are the most prevalent, but there are slighter orange flavors as well. More towards the middle and the end, the citrus subsides and a more flowery/greenish taste mixed with some caramel sweetness come to the tongue. A rather unique and interesting flavor combo.
Mouthfeel – Light in body with a slightly higher than average level of carbonation. The light body and carbonation make it quite refreshing and make for an easy drinking brew.
Overall – Some interesting taste combinations make this a brew to try. It is easy to drink and refreshing.

Golden color with a hint of orange, this white head. Floral and citrus aroma. Thin mouthfeel. Rather light flavor with some hints of citrus and jasmine and a dry finish. Not a decent, not great kölsch, and I don’t think the addition of the citrus/jasmine flavors improves it or the style.
