3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Pour is straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a bit on the malty side with some citrus/fruit. Taste is also malty but not cloying with notes of hay, bread, and light fruits. Light bodied, refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer is crystal clear and pale yellow with an inch or so of white head. The aroma brings grain, corn, bread, sourdough yeast. A touch of fruity sweetness along with biscuit / grain character. Light bodied with moderate carbonation, finishing dry. Overall, a decent example of the style.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy white head. Aroma is bready yeast, toast, sharp, but light tree fruit, grassy and floral hops. Flavor is very bready up front with some apple skin and oily floral hops, a little toasty grain and light fruity citrus and floury grain to the finish. Light to medium body with a creamy to oily feel and light to medium strength, blanketing carbonation. Decent, but a little on the extra yeasty and dull side compared to other Kolsch I have tried.

22 ounce bottle. Thanks Al. Pours a somewhat cloudy straw gold with an average white head. Aroma of yeast, malt, and grass. Taste is yeast, malt, grass, and floral. Very nice and very easy to drink.

22oz bottle, if rated for style this would be sufficiently higher, i was shocked FFF didnt dry hop the crap out of this, instead the left it where a kolsch should be a nice easy drinking beer.. really quite tasty and clean finishing.. nothing wrong with it at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber fresh from the brewpub, poured into spankin’ new FFF glass. Light to medium golden with small frothy,creamy white head, partially lasting. Aroma is crisp, light in character of fruitiness, straw, touch of grain, but good substance. Flavor matches; light fruitiness, light grain/breadiness, bit of honey. Light body but not thin. Crisp and refreshing. Sweet but not too much so. Finish is dry with light grassy bitterness. Tasty, extremely drinkable, great substance of a beer in this style.
