2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at brewery. The pour is very light yellow with thick head. The aroma is a standard kolsch as well as the taste. Not my favorite style but it holds true to form.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost clear golden with a white ring. Nice graininess here. Very little hop presence but a hi t of noble hops. Some honey. Fruit is tasted late and it is citrus which is a surprise. A pleasant Kolsch and is better than the score it gets.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy golden with a light head and lace. Lots of flavor, light, but never thin - mostly caramel and light grain; semi-sweet caramel lasts to the finish, which is light natural bittering. Good hot weather session beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
"Dark golden yellow in color with a white head and streaks of lacing. Mild aroma of grain and a hint of citrus. Medium bodied Kolsch, quenching and enjoyable. Grassy with a touch of lemon and orange. Strong start to the samples from Shoreline."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale orange golden, small head, spotty lace. Very mild overall, lager-ish w/ a bit of sweet malt character and only subdued ale-like frtuitiness. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Finishes clean w/ a mild bitterness. Not hugely flavorful but well balanced and not at all watery. Well done. Maybe not my favorite of my trip to the brewpub but I think of all the Shoreline beers I tried this one achieved its aims the best.
