3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
( 12oz bottle thanks to BA jfeger) Pours about 1 finger of head, that dissipates quickly. Pale yellow true to style, but the lacing on the glass makes it more special and raises its score. Nose of slightly sour apple, some sweet malt, spices. Taste is very crisp like a lager, but lacks the bad bitterness I associate with that style of beer. Some good spices, very refreshing, maybe a light citrus, slightly bittering hops which are welcome. Carbonation and weight are really just average. Nothing special, but not bad. I could drink this all night. No aspect lingers in a bad way, and it’s a well balanced beer. Nice kolsch!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Golden in the glass with a creamy white head that left thick lacing and some lasting. Aromas of floral and grain with a toasted malt background. The flavor found grain and lemon. Light body and crisp.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle - Pours clear gold with a very thin white head. It has a light malt aroma. The flavor is light and sweet with a touch of hops and a touch of fruit character. It’s light bodied as expected for the style and finishes clean. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kolschs aren’t really my favorite style by a long shot but this is better than most I’ve had. Light grainey quality with floral notes. Has a little bit of a farmhouse ale character to it-just a bit. Light body creamy texture.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[bottle] An overall average beer. I enjoy the beers Schlafly puts out and this one was no exception. Mouthfeel is thin, color is clear/golden yellow. There was a little bitterness to at the finish, but not detracting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 4/2009 (why so old? Kansas City isn’t far from StL at all!). Poured a perfectly clear pale yellow with a fizzy bright white head with decent retention and lacing.
Slightly sweet, slightly hoppy, slightly funky aroma - all relatively subtle. Very light mouthfeel with a medium-strong carbonation, definitely a summer beer. Flavors of light grainy malt, light citrus, and bits of yeast and pepper. Finishes dry.
