3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour was shimmering straw with 2 fingers of wispy white foam sitting on top. Nose is wet cement, malt, and a light tangy citrus. Taste is tangy/sweet citrus and dry, bitter hops that extend into a long finish that comes up sweet after about 30 seconds. Very strange, but is a very noteworthy aspect of this brew. It is probably my favorite part ... a finish that starts dry and bitter, but then turns tangy/sweet and wet.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale yellow color with a large soapy white head. The aroma was light sweet and tangy malts with a touch of citrus. The flavor was tangy, malty and sweet with a light yeasty presence and touches of table sugar and citrus. The finish was long, sweet and tangy. Medium body. Solid.

On tap at Kelly’s. Rich orange-gold with a thin white head. Nose and flavor show significant fruit, light hay and biscuit, and some lightly piney hop through the finish. Creamy, easy, and enjoyable, I could drink a gallon of this. Can’t say that about Hunahpu’s or PBR.

Draft. Light golden pour. Definitely the newer kolsch, via the old ratings were of a better beer. Citrus, and earthy spice notes along with some bready malt notes. Alright.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, cereal grain, honey, sweet malt. Flavor is sweet upfront with a malty, bready finish. Easy drinking, tasty Kolsch. Slightly on the sweet side but that’s it’s only flaw.

On-tap at Cole’s. Light colour, with carbonation bubbles. Neutral aroma, minimal head. This is a thirst quencher but the taste was rather minimal. Unoffensive but fairly plain, and so not that drinkable.
