1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pale clear yellow, with very minimal sugary sweet aroma. Nothing complex on the nose. And nothing complex on flavor. Almost no flavor at all. Hint of bitterness, and mild sweetness. But it’s so light bodied, you could play beer pong with it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly cloudy, very pale golden yellow color with straw cored hues and 1.5 finger white foam head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks and spots of lace.
Sweet, slightly earthy aroma with hints of light fruit, grass and straw . Subtle spice with bready yeast, apple and pear. Faint alcohol.
Medium bodied but fuller than expected with slightly dry earthy hops and some zesty spice. Peppery with pale malt, earthy grass, straw and crisp, light fruit. Hints of apple and pear as well as some banana and subtle alcohol. Crisp, clean and easy to drink.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Euclid Hall - clear golden pour - I have to say that there are no true flaws in this beer, really, unless you count being boring as fuck a flaw, in which case, then yes, this beer is seriously flawed - little to no crispness or hop character - zero malt character - it’s just kind of...there - your brain registers that it is drinking something, but that’s it - it is possible to make a beer this light, but still full of crisp, snappy, spicy/hoppy goodness - this has not happened here.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden with an off-white head. Aroma of grain, corn, and slight hops. The taste is grainy and corny, but without off flavors. Light body. Decent.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Pours crystal clear light straw. White fizzy head. Aroma is light grassy hops and corn. Very little to comment on otherwise. Complete lack of hop flavor and bitterness or fruity fermentation character I’d expect from a kolsch. Definitely not a good German Kolcsh and a not a good representation of Colorado brewing. Bummer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
can. Pours clear light gold with white head. Aroma corn, light metal, mostly nothing. "A light crisp ale with a hint of sweetness" is exactly what this is, but nothing more. Would be better out of the can, on a hot summer day. Really in that context it would be pretty good. A step above macro lagers.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sl cloudy golden. Faint aroma a bit corny and touch unpleasant. Some malt / tropical fruit sweetness but its juts a bit papery, peppery and sugery this. Maybe I just don’t get Kolsch’s.....!
