3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearnce: Pours a golden straw colored body with a thick creamy white head which disappears after a minute.
Nose: smells like a hefe-weizen sans the banana flavor.
Taste: Interesting taste very similar to a German made hefe-weizen sans the banana flavor with a touch of pilsner hops flavor. Finishes a nice balance of malty sweetness and hops bitterness.
Mouthfeel: creamy, very carbonated.
Overall: very refreshing and pleasant to drink. Great session beer; great summer beer.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is like a typical kolsh, but with an unusual fruitiness that I usually do not encounter in this style. Flavor is quite sour; upon drinking there is a sour malt character that reminds me of a slightly hoppier Oktoberfest. Initially crisp on the palate, but a bit too sweet, and somewhat heavy. I find it hard to believe that this is only 4.8% ABV...I can taste the alcohol more than usual for a beer in this range. An interesting beer, but heavier than I expect for this style. Enjoyable but not really true to this style. I would appreciate a lighter, less sweet beer, with the alcohol less noticeable. I enjoyed the interesting fruity quality to the hops though.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of buttery notes with light cereal notes also discernible. Taste is also dominated by unrefined grainy notes with light buttery aftertaste. Body is about average with medium carbonation. Definitely not as good as most example of the style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is malty, color is medium yellow. Taste is grainy, malty with a dry lemony spin. This style is very much not for me, but this was not an unpleasant beer to try. 12 oz bottle from Crown Liquors in downtown Indianapolis.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a pretty decent Kolsch. Dry and nicely carbonated. Sweetish on the tip of the tongue with a bready finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small white head that quickly dissipates. The aroma has toast, some biscuit, frankly fairly bready. The taste is biscuity, some sweet grain, a bit of a long finish. Not bad for a fairly boring style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden with a thin foamy head. Nose is biscuit-grainy with a very light grassiness. The flavor is really light and clean with a little grassiness and English muffin breadiness (not toasted or with cracker tones). Very clean and light without a lagered yeast.
