3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Vine Street Brewpub. Clear gold with no head. Great ale-kolsch aroma. Biscuity grain, with light wheat, banana, peach. Taste was light, but finely carbonated--not trying to make up for anything. Just right with the perfect fluid mouthfeel. Taste was lager biscuit malt, with a light banana yeast effect. Light apricot-ish fruit aftertaste. By far the best kolsch I ever tried.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Poppy’s Pizza in Estes Park, CO. Great beer selection and a knowledgable owner. Pours like at typical Kolsch, fizzy golden with a generous white head. Nose and taste offer grassy hops, bread, lightly tangy notes, and then a dry finish. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the Hessen Haus. The beer pours a brilliant gold color with a big fluffy white head and good lace. The aroma has some mild herbal hop notes and a good bit of bready almost doughy yeastiness. The flavor is nicely fruity with a good bit of sharp herbal hoppiness. The beer is dry and refreshing with just the right amount of bite all around.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, pale golden with an off-white head that starts out puffy and quickly fades to a ring around the edge. Aroma of hay, toast, and soap. The taste is slightly soapy, toasty bready malt, a touch of spice, and water. Medium-thin. A decent refresher, but not really impressive.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at the Brauerei Biergarten
The color is a dark shade of blond; the head reminds of eggwhite. There is a remote aroma of malt. The mouthfeel is dry, the body quite weak, and there is no interesting flavor to separate this from any Lager. Ordinary bitterness. Poor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hopfig-herber Antrunk mit angenehmen Getreidenoten, frisch. Die Intensität zieht noch etwas an, Herbe und Süße passen zueinander. Wenig bitterer, weich malziger Abgang. Der Hopfen ist permanent in geringfügigem Maße vorhanden. Gut! 9/11/11/12/12/12

Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate balanced aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
