3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a slightly hazy softly carbonated and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty and dirty sock. The mild crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The smooth malty quafable flavor contained crisp notes of butter malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

tap at brewery before DLD 07, found this note hidden away, pours a clear gold copper, citrus aroma, light and smooth and sessionable, a good grab and fun try.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy orangey blonde color with a thin white head. Decent aroma and flavor of hay and citrus with an astringent finish. The body is light and oily while the carbonation is soft. Well done for a not too exciting style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty average for FFF’s. Cloudy? golden pour with thin head. Aroma of yeast and light malt. Easy drinking, but boring.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap: Finally got to try this as the last two times I was in there were problems with the kegs or so I was told. Looks nice with a coppery hue topped by a frothy head and produced very good lacing. The aroma has notes of vanilla wafers, herbal and grassy hops, crab-apple, plastic, diacetyl, and yeast esters...hum? The taste was sweet and fruity with a Vienna like malt character finishing with mild noble hop bitterness which led to an acidic aftertaste. Additionally I got some butterscotch and metallic off-flavors which makes me believe that something is wrong once again with this brew. The mouth feel is not as crisp or refreshing as I would have liked, too syrupy and harsh. This is just not too style (not that ever mattered with FFF) and in this case it should be, disappointing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub. Aroma: Light grainy maltiness, green apple, and a light vinousness. Noble hop aroma is slightly spicy. Appearance: Medium gold in color and fairly clear. Off-white head was small and frothy, but diminished rapidly. No lacing. Flavor: Light malt sweetness, white grapes, and noble hops. Hops are floral and spice. Finishes fairly clean. Palate: Light bodied. Moderate carbonation. Was missing the slight tart finish a good kolsch should have. Overall: A good starter beer to warm you up for the other 3F offerings, but pretty uninteresting on its own.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2012 Tap(2006). Caramel and barley malt aroma. Clear orange amber color with moderate head. Slightly sweet malt flavor with moderate hops present throughout. Hops flavor much more up front than is typical for the style but gives this one more body and works well. Another great 3F brew./ Bottle (2012) Dusty lemon and lactic malt aroma. Golden yellow with large head. Musty , slightly stale barley malt flavor. Will average this a bit - liked it way better in 2006 - possibly due to freshness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at 3 Floyds. Pours clear golden with a quickly fading white head. Fresh grassy noble hop nose. Flavor has notes of pale malt, light caramel, zesty lemon and grassy hops. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and moderate carbonation. Pretty hoppy for a kolsch. Pretty solid stuff.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light amber hue with a quickly fading white head. Nose is light caramel malt and nuts with some citrus highlights. The flavor is a generic caramel with a light hint of lemon. I, too foung some unfortunate metallic qualities, but just barely. Very run of the mill, but not quite as difficult to drink as buddy, Frankenkitty, found it to be.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mid-amber bodied with a skinny, white head that was quickly a wet halo. Confusing aroma of strong metallic notes over nutty lemon. Flavor finds a floral base with possible diacetyl problems and a metallic finish. Sharp mouthfeel finishes dry. Really not very good... a challenge to drink.
