1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Honestly a 97 for the style? This doesn’t even lick a turd to any German koelsch. Light, buttery, undeveloped, a shitter of a brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
An excellent Kolsch, especially for an American brewer, and especially for Three Floyds for whom subtlety is not usually a modus operandi. Lemon and grass with a bit of citrus and hay in the aroma. A smooth, even slick mouthfeel and a medium to light body. Delicious.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at FFF. Pours a clear yellow orange with little lacing. Aroma is of bread and lemon. Taste is lemon, orange, and some pepper. Thin mouthfeel and easy to drink. Not my favorite style but not bad, would enjoy more outside in the sun.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Poured into an imperial pint. Pouts a very yellow without much head or lacing. Sweet aroma. Some grass but not much. Mouthfeel is nice and light but not crisp. Taste is mild buttery sweetness with light grains and very mild lemon. Easily drinkable Kolsch but too sweet an not enough crispyness. Not very memorable.

Crisp pils malt nose, bread, light hay, a touch of spicy hops. Pours a slightly hazy straw color, white head with good retention. Light and refreshing flavor, bready pils malt and some yeast, spicy and delicate hops. Light body and medium carbonation. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden pour with a single finger head. Big pale malt aroma. Lots of yeast and bread. Big mouth for a Kolsch. Huge bread notes in the taste. Very clean. An excellent summer beer.

On draft at 3 Floyds, pours a light hazy gold color aromas of lager yeast, hay, straw, and light bread. Flavors follow suit, light creaminess to it refreshing, nice offering.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft... Murky straw, but mostly clear, off white head, leaves a thin cap good lace... The aroma is really sweet but I find the bitterness in kolsch’s offputting so I appreciate this...the taste is pretty sweet as well but brings about a little better balance with some wet grains and a floral note... Good maybe even great for the style, a good bmc transition beer, but not something I’d have again

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on tap at 3 Floyds Brewpub after eating a whole mess of food with some good friends. Appearance a slightly cloudy gold with a thin white head. Aroma of german lager yeast and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is nice and refreshing, nice malt/hop balance, grassy, full bodied, really great stuff considering the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a Growler into a Three Floyd’s pinto glass. Appearance is light gold with a thick white head of foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is slightly spicy and a bit grainy. Taste is estery with a nice biscuit presence. This example of a kolsch has a good bit more going on than I had expected.
