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

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.

Growler… Murky pear-colored ale with a small, scattered, white head. The citrusy, grainy bouquet offers lemon pith accompanied by a gentle, malty, butterscotch component. Medium-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. The citrusy, grainy flavor provides a modestly acidic lemon nuance. Finishes crisp and tangy with a soft kiss of butter. Growler courtesy of fear025!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear straw gold with little head that quickly fades away, ok retention. Aroma is lightly grassy, spicy, and cleanly bready. Taste is clean pilsener-like malt, grass, hint of nuts, touch of spicy hops. Body is light-medium, frothy, above average carbonation, dryish spicy finish. Overall, a great lighter bodied beer from 3F. Full flavored and crisp.

draft at the brewpub. pours hazed straw yellow with foamy white head. a wonderful fruity estery yeast aroma. the nose seems right on for a kolsch style. the flavor follows the same line but tends to come off a little too tart for my style, nice lemony and fruity character though. good kolsch though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at three floyds... Pours a transparent apple cider pour with no head whatsoever... Soft grain, biscuits and grass hops for the aroma... Flavors are more grassy with a lively feel to it while quickly moving to a sweeter grain note. Crisp and semi-lively mouthfeel. ok but nothing out of the ordinary.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2011 On tap; pour is murky light golden with a very modest white head in this glass. The nose has a hint of grain, citrus; the flavor profile is spent grains, a hint of citrus, light hoppy notes, a touch of the malt side with baked breads present. Its an easy drinker, and a light kolsch, but the head is a little disappointing.
