2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Found this one on clearance for $2 for a 6 pack, so I couldn’t say no. I’ve never had a kölsch before and I’ve never heard of the brewery, but for that price, what the hay? Pours a gold/yellow color with a white head. Smells like....grass, musty fruit or something. Not appealing to me at all. Luckily it tastes much better than it smells. Has a very crisp, refreshing taste. A bit of sweet, a bit of malt and a bit of bitterness in the aftertaste. Surprisingly good. Thinner than I like in a beer but not bad. Not much carbonation to be found. Very easily drinkable. I am interested to see if they have a higher ABV version of this. It could be dangerous. It didn’t blow my world, but I’d say I got my money’s worth.

Draft at Blackback. Pours pale yellow, brilliant with sticky white head. Nose is grainy with moderate fruity notes. Subtle hopping and clean. Faint sulfur. On tasting, low fruity and malt notes, imminently drinkable and clean. Really nice Kolsch.

Clear golden color with bright white foam. Good looking beer. Aroma is light malt and hops. Very mild. Say malt taste up front with some hops in the middle and a slightly bitter finish. Decent easy drinking Kolsch.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy light yellow pour, fat then thin cream head, with a crisp floral grain flavor to it. Leaves you with a slight mouth feel of soap. Not a typical style for my palate. However, these disjointed flavors come together for a refreshing session German beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
a great version of a hard to brew style. this one had a beautiful pale golden straw color and gorgeous thick bright white head. nice flowery hop aroma, crisp, light body -- though a bit heavier than most kölsch beers i’ve had. slightly grainy note, but finishes clean, with good hop bitterness -- a little more bitter than most other versions i’ve had. great light warm weather beer!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/23/13, 200th Rater of this one
Aroma: This one has a fresh cut grass aroma, with plenty of bread and grain malts
Appearance: It pours a clearish orange-golden color with a small white head and some sticky lace
Flavor: Tastes grassy, grainy, a lightly fruity, with a nice, light sweetness and light-medium bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly light, it has a lively carbonation, a clean feel, and a lightly dry finish
This one is actually a really nice, clean, easy to drink beer. I could see this being a perfect beach beer, as it is light and easy to drink without sacrificing flavor (a tough tightrope to walk). Well done.
