Eh. Decent summer ale - high drink ability, but maybe after couple of big IPAs first

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle into mug. Foamy white head that dissipated in just over a minute. Aroma was bready with just a hint of hops. Taste was in line with aroma, slightly bready with hop bitterness. Overall a good beer. Good on a warm day and I think it would go well with grilled food, although I didn?t try it with food. Will drink again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours light gold with thin head. Rather unappealing taste. Will not have again.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the Folsom BevMo. Pours light gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is bready with light noble hop. Med minus body. Flavor is bready, with some herbal and noble hop aspects. It’s bitter in the finish. Beats Bud Light anyday.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. About a finger of head. Color was golden pale urine, just like the Rye IPA I just had of Saranac’s. Light white lacing on the top that dissipated within five minutes. White, wet sporadic film on the sides.
Smelled caramel malts up front. Sharp distinction of sharp corn malts with some honey in there. Pretty much what I’d expect from a kolsch.
Tasted almost exactly as the smell. Got honey, light caramel, corn, biscuit. A kolsch.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Smooth, watery finish.
A pretty good kolsch when I look back at it. What you see is what you get. I’d definitely try it again.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a highly carbonated gold with aromas of apple and pear juice. Flavor is similar... Kind of a highly carbonated fruit juice with a bit of astringent alcohol added just for funsies. I find it a very poor attempt at the style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured into a cheater pint:
A: straw yellow, 1/4" head with good retention, lots of bubbling carbonation
S: not much nose, slightly bready, hint of spice from hop
T: well balanced, slight spice and fruit. I detect slight tannin. Nothing too memorable.
M: water like lightness. Feels oddly slick..

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
a light tasting bitter tingly sandwich beer that is refreshing enough with a mild vegetable flavor component similar to a soup that dissapates soon and follows through with some sweetness and watery fruit in the backround. wheaty aroma after a bit in the glass with a bit of slickness on the palate and a tempting fleeting hop kiss near the finish. it has it’s place.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle @ home. Clear, golden yellow orange appearance with a white head. Pale grainy malty, grassy hoppy nose. Sweet, bland, pale malty, bitter, fairly nasty flavor. Pretty crappy.
