3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ DLD 09: Pour was pure gold with a sizeable white head. Nose was very grassy with some earthy/herbal based hop notes. Some pale malt is noticeable...medium bodied. Very clean and crisp, flavor was a bit of toasted malt and some herbal/earthy hops. Nice session brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at DLD ’09. Lighter aroma, good amount of hop as expected with grassy, leafy, and some citrusy hops (definitely not standard 3fs, but their work is still noticeable here). Also, some lager pale malts, and melon. Still very enticing, and gotta give 3fs credit for making a beer of this style so appealing. Not really that special appearance though, but not bad, lighter body with a frothy white head, minor carbonation, golden-orange color. With the taste, I feel this is really as good as a crisp, clean tasting bottom-fermenting beer can be, as there some creaminess to it and the flavors come out very well. Notes of a grassy, 3fs citrus bitter, some lactose sweetness, and basic pils malt and pale malt balance that is nice. One of 3fs more basic selections, but I really can’t complain as it works out pretty well. A nice way to cap off a really great day of drinking.

Nothing really stands out about this Koelsch, other than it is a good representation of the style. Light in color, nice smell of the yeast and hops. Very drinkable with a Koelsch tang.

Not a big fan of the kolach but this wasn’t bad. Bready and malty. Not too bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Golden pour with nice white head. Doughy, fruity aroma with some floral hops. Mild hoppiness, light flavor with lots of fruitiness. Light and effervescent on the palate. The kind of Kolsch that doesn’t suck. Of course Three Floyds made it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub. Golden with a thin white head that leaves clumpy lacing. Nice floral bouquet on this with a light malt presenced. Flavor is light with a mild floral hoppy finish. Thin with a mild lingeriing bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Imperial pint draft at the brewpub. Easy drinking and smooth, the session light beer. Rather well done Kolsch actually, leaning more to the malty side of the spectrum. Filtered orange-tan color. Fresh malt and hop aroma. Refreshingly well done.

Had on tap a couple of days ago. Good for a Kolsch, disappointing for FFF. The moment I tried this, I said to myself "This is not Three Floyds material." A good beer, but if there’s other FFF to choose, this one should be put aside.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub: Slightly cloudy and yellow in color with a thin white head. The aromas and flavors were on the soft side lacking the typical FFF concentration.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewpub. I haven’t had many kolsches but I think this is the best so far. Slightly hazy yellow, small white head. Doughy yeast aroma. Basically sweet and smooth. One of the lighter brews from these guys but still good.
