2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Q-Brick. Pale yellow, with a quickly fading head. Biscuity, grainy aroma, clean and malty. Very fruity, sweet flavor, with candy or gum balls. Not terrible, but not very great, and nothing like a real kolsch. Nicely smooth with a light body. This is the best I’ve found this beer. It is often worse.

Tap at the 2005 Tokyo beer festival. Pale, golden, minimal effervescence. Minimal aroma to speak of. Honestly, the only thing between this and water was a little bit of grain. But they sure made up for it with the porter!
