3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Sockeye brewpub. Pours clear gold with bright white head. The mild aroma is mostly sugary sweet malt and a sense of yeast along with spicy and grassy hops. The taste begins with a brief pulse of spicy and floral hops before a wave of sugary sweet malts and graininess roll them over. Into the finish there’s lingering spicy and floral hop bitterness. It tries to be too sweet but the pleasing level of hop bitterness keeps the sweetness somewhat in check.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught: Clear pale gold color, lots of head retention and thus lacing with a bright white color. Nose of light floral hops, all noble, and a biscuity malt body much richer than the appearance would have you assume. The flavor is lightly bitter with fresh hops and a balanced sweetness in the medium body that brings everything up and over onto your palate. A very light (refreshing) beer in that sense but equally quaffable in the olfactory world. Finishes clean and balanced. Nice kolsch, yum.

Numero 1800, on tap at brewery. Mild grain-beany aroma, with sweet malt graininess and light fruity hoppiness. Golden clear with white foamy lacing head. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Crisp and clean with carbonic acidity, a bit bolder than most kölsch and a bit more bitter - like a kölsch on juice. Overall, though, it’s well balanced and is very refreshing. Paired well with the burger I had for lunch.
