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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear straw color with small white head. The aroma is wheat, straw, and grass. Taste followed the nose and also had some saltynotes in it. Nothing fancy here, but I didn’t mind it for a very light and refreshing beer on a warm day.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear yellow with small off white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is strong wheat, honey, and hay. Thin mouthfeel with sweet wheat, grass, honey, and light dry finish, decent.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild , reminds me of a lager/Wit. Creamy beer, low amounts of flavor. Not the best from FFF.

Bomber poured into a nonic. This beer is clear, bright amber in color with a thin white head that settles to a ring. Aroma includes pale malt, grass/hay, honey, and corn. Taste is moderately sweet cracker, biscuit, honey, and grass, initially. There is a lightly hop bitterness on the swallow. Light bodied, moderate but assertive carbonation, smooth barely thick texture, dry, crisp finish.

This one poured a light orange color with a white head. Aroma was of light triple c hops, caramel, and pale grain. Falvor was similar, not particulay kolsch like in hop or malt profile. Ok.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
