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.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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!
