2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
14-MAY-2014, draft @Churchkey.
Pale golden with a low white head. Aroma is straw, pilsner-like though a touch of sweetness. Taste the same. Very citric. Fresh though not served very cold.

Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head. Smells of subtle earthy hops and sweet malt. Taste is sweet and bitter, earthy and grainy. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Schlafly Kolsch finishes with a lingering crisp sweetness.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Medium golden colour. Stinky sulphurous nose, unclean grains. As Parksy put it "this tastes like bad draft". We both dumped our glasses.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bright yellow color. Some head, a decent sheet of lace. Looks better than your typical Kolsch. Tiny bubbles of carbonation.
First sniff is dry, bready English stuff. Has a mild, crisp aroma. The hop is strictly a mild bittering agent. It’s sweet, but try enough to not be sugary. The bready Kolsch style serves this one well. Even more than 6 months old it still smells quite fresh.
The "beer" flavor here, if that makes sense, is really strong. It has all the best qualities of a lager at a townie bar, but with only the malt sweetness, and none of the rice and HFCS. The aftertaste is lemon and pollen.
The mouthfeel is creamy and lingers a bit, but it’s very smooth and slides down the gullet. This is a year-round beer: smooth enough for the summers but with enough OOMPH for an autumn or winter bender.

Bottle. Golden in color. Small to medium head. Aroma is hay, grass, and a touch of grains. Taste is slightly sweet on the front and just a tad sour in the aftertaste. Maltgrass, straw taste.

An easy beer to drink. I could see this as a thirst quencher while helping a friend move. I didn’t notice any aroma and it has a buttery honey flsvor .

Not bad for style. Hint of sourness reminiscent of the brewer’s nasty aunt. Pours clear orange with decent head and lacing. Mostly malt with a little malt but not a huge amount of overall character. Tap at Churchkey.
