3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 22 oz bottle. It pours a clear yellow/gold color with moderate carbonation and a thin head. I didn’t get much of an aroma.. If anything, I thought I got a whiff of butterscotch and I guess some light bread malt. There is some hop bitterness in the flavor, which I like. The body has a nice crispness. This is not the best beer I’ve ever had and also not the worst. I would probably buy it at a bar if they had it on draft... depending on what else was available..

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber into tulip. Hazy golden yellow, moderate persistent white head. On the nose, I’d swear it’s a hefe -- wheaty, a hint of fruit. In the mouth, it’s fairly hoppy on the entry, picks up a grainy mid, and finishes with resinous hops. Decent, but I’d like the hops dialed back just a bit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Features the usual light bready aroma and also some spiciness and grass. Lighter yellow, and while heady, it’s still for a Kolsch I’d say. Initial bitterness followed by a sharp dirt finish. Exceptional crispness. What Kolsch needs as a style is more hops...and it;s covered here.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Excellent Kolsch, slightly heavy on bittering hops = perfect. Initial bitterness followed by mild sweetness, finished by a pleasantly lingering bitterness. Great beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub.
Comes to the table a lightly hazy gold with a smallish white head that persists. Nice sweet bready pilsner malt nose with a hint of honey and floral spicy hops. The flavor is a touch on the sweet side with an almost under attenuated quality to it. Sweet honey caramel and pilsner malt with a touch of spicy hop and a hint of diacytyl. Light to medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly mouthfeel. Its a touch sweet, but I could get behind a few of these.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light orange with a thin white head. Aroma of light fruits, strawberry, pale malts. Flavor of bready malt, sweet fruit, earthy hops, and more grains the finish. A well made kolsch- complex and not too sweet.
