3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Clear yellow gold with a one finger white head. A lightly lemony aroma and that is tasted, too. Fruity bitterness that is also dry and has some sulfur. The after taste brought some Cascade effects that included light melons, tropical, and citrus fruit. This was nice and I was sorry to see the glass empty.

Pours a clear pale golden with a pretty big and fluffy white head. Aroma is subtle citrus and grass. Taste is sweet pale malt, grassiness, bread and very mild hops. Great interpretation of the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours basically clear straw golden with a fairly tall eggshell head that settles to a foamy ring and leaves some killer foamy and delicate lace. Nose involves bread dough toward sourdough, lightest noble hop spice, crisp clean grassy florals. Hardly sweet, fairly bitter. Light to medium bodied, active, clean, crisp, finishing on the dry side with dough and light hop oils. Really nice quaffable brew. I don’t know if they’re doing mixed packs of cans yet, but this needs to be in a can. Really digging it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crystal clear pale yellow with a sudsy, persistent white head. Clean cracker malt aroma with a little corn sweetness in the back. More light, crisp maltiness in the flavor. A nice, dry, grassy bitterness follows that is right on style (maybe a bit heavy, but this is SN after all). Body is refreshingly light but also creamy on the tongue. Finishes light, dry, clean and refreshing with a light bitterness that lingers. Great take on the Kolsch style.

Bang on the style, but A tad metallic. Yellow bodied. smooth mouthfeel. No aroma. Nothing too special. Super fresh is always best with this style.
