3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle. Pours a clear yellow color with a small head.
Crisp aromas of crackers, biscuits, grains, and noble hops. Not as higher toned and crisp as I’d like.
Lighter bodied, but not extremely light. Balanced with a somewhat lacking feel and notes of crackers, noble hops, and grains.
Didn’t seem fully like a kolsch. Instead it seemed more like a pilsner. Still, it’s a solid beer that is easy to drink

Bomber to taster brought by me to the group tasting. Looks decent; a transparent light gold with white lacing. Smells semi-sweet and doughy. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad, but nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
650 ml bottle
This is definitely just what it claims to be - a light summer beer for drinking on hot afternoons after working all day in the yard. It lives up to my minimal expectations but ultimately like more kolsches is just a bit meh.
Aroma / Appearance - The golden carbonated base suffocates the head that collapses like snow hitting warm pavement. All that remains is a thin trace of cream. Lemons, grains, and light hops are held together well yet do not catch my interest for long.
Flavor / Palate - The light mouthfeel takes a while to get a handle on. When it finally occurs the experience is lemons, low key hops (for a FFF release), and mild bitterness on the back of the palate. It has a few strengths. Even so after the first pint I was not really excited about finishing up the bomber.

Not exactly kolsch-y....more like a very good lager...
Great flavour....crisp and refreshing.
