From bomber. Pours an almost clear, true amber with a lot of carbonation, white head that really dies down. Nose is quite grainy, sweet a little bit of fruit. Tastes a little bitter, not my favorite flavor.

22 oz. bomber served in a pilsner glass. A: Pours a clear gold color with a pure white head forming on the pour. Recedes quickly to a thin film. Pretty standard. S: Pretty typical kolsch smell. Light pale malts, some mineral qualities with a light grassy hop note. Sweet, lagery yeast as well. T: Pretty much lines up with the nose. Pale malt sweetness, some slightly ester yeast component. A grassy hop profile is somewhat assertive here, but the malty sweetness really brings it home on the finish. M: Light bodied with a medium high carbonation level. Has a malty sweet finish with a high drinkability. O: Pretty solid flavor profile for a kolsch and it had a little more hop bite than normal which is on par with FFF. It’s a little too cold in Chicago now for this guy, but on a hat summer day this would be great. Seasonal summer six packs would be good. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-06-2012

Now I’m not all too familiar with what a Kolsch or Kolsch style is supposed to taste like, but this isn’t a bad beer. It looks magical. The way the bubbles effervesce the liquid gold. This is probably the closest I’ve seen a craft beer get to the MCB coloration BUT it strays far from the flavoring path. This is a hard beer to describe the flavor. The aroma is kind of fruity, but rather subdued. I detect no hop flavor and no dubious sweetness so I can infer that this is a balanced beer with no side of the spectrum being tipped. Not my favorite, but certainly worth trying once or twice.

Tmoney99 (11069) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Draft. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate balanced malt and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable beer but good for style.

22 oz bottle. I like the label upgrade, much better than the herman munster green of the old label. Pours a gold yellow with a white head. Light grain hay nose. Earthy light pale malt flavors. A little better than the average kolsch once imported from abroad, but not that great either. I’d pick up another bottle at half the price.

22oz bottle, shared by b3shine. Clear light yellow color. Thin whitew head, few loose dots of lace. Interesting hop aroma to this, approaching pilsner-town. Hay, light lemon. Lightly tart sweet taste. Soft, lighter carbonation. A fine kolsch.

Newk (299) - - OCT 11, 2012
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

22oz bottle from Antioch Fine Wine and Spirits. Pours a crystal clear, bright yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma is bready, cereal, corn. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, cereal, just a touch of pine hops, with a light, sweet, malty finish. Very quaffable.

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.
