3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale golden pour with a white head. Some sweet bread, pale malt, and floral hops. Light yeast, a bit of grass, and some fruit esters such as apple and pear. The flavor has a fair amount of fruit character such as apple, pear, and white grape. Some floral hops, mild grass, and yeast. Pale malt and bread give some sweetness. Could use a little bitterness and less sweetness.

Honestly a 97 for the style? This doesn’t even lick a turd to any German koelsch. Light, buttery, undeveloped, a shitter of a brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

Bottle @ home, courtesy of TheAlum. Adam knows my tastes well! Thanks! Pours a hazy yellow appearance with a lasting white head. Straw, pale grainy, herbal, lightly floral hoppy aroma. Fairly dry grainy malty, herbal, light lemon, grassy flavor. Crisp and dry. One of the best (if not the best) American renditions of a Kölsch that I’ve ever had. Like.
