3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
1pt 0.9floz bottle. 5.3% ABV. Pours clear light yellow with white head, lacing the glass. Light floral and grassy hop aromas coupled with grainy malt and bread. Medium-light mouthfeel showcasing well balanced hop flavours and bitterness. Zesty bitterness accentuated by a medium-high carbonation. Medium-dry finish with a residual caramel sweetness and hop flavour lingering through. Very nice, flavoursome kolsch.

7/17/10 notes: Bottle. Good lightly floral bready aroma. Color is bright gold with a small head. Flavor is light malt, bit of a herbal hops, soft mouthfeel. Goes down gently, with pleasant flavors and finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow with fizzy carbonation that fades quickly. Grainy aroma, thin crisp taste on the palate with some lingering spice. Cleaner and smoother than the American versions.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My first truly German Kolsch and I think I finally get the appeal. All of the American versions were so lame and this one is very, very refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Brauerie Sünner im Walfisch. Malty, fruity aroma. Nice taste. A bit sour. Quite pale. No lasting head.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. Shocked the hell outta me seeing non-AB taps, sale of AB notwithstanding. Anyway, clear gold with a very nice, fizzy, white head. Bready malt nose, cereal and crisp floral and grass hop aromas. Bold (for a Kölsch) grassy hop flavors over mildly sweet bread. Palate is light, but rounded out well. Really liked this one - a really pleasant surprise in AB-land!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Thin, filtered looking orange-yellow. Respectable white head. Some brewery aroma, with a touch of lemon. Relatively straightforward stuff, light to medium bodied. Doughy mouthfeel, balanced out by a light hoppy spiciness. Bready, with a little bit of graininess inthe finish. Pleasant session beer, hyper-quaffable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Pale malty aroma with a grainy hint. The flavor has pale malts, a light sweetness and light earthy hops. Solid.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. It pours a sparkling, clear body, a bit pale golden, and topped by a big, dense, creamy white head. Weak, grainy nose with a fruity touch. Grainy and fruity flavor, pleasantly hopped, but quite uninteresting anyway. Medium body, dry. A decent one, nothing more. Guess it slakes the thirst quite well though. 100327

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear yellow, decent head, but fades quickly. Brown bottle but the aroma has a touch of skunkiness. The flavor his a bit of spice to it, then some fruit in the finish. But that skunkiness is still there.
