3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle in a plastic cup. Pours golden with a cream-colored head. Aroma of pale and toasted malts, plus some herbal and floral/piney hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good beer for the style.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a light gold, tending toward yellow with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is light and mildly sweet and I wish the nose came across stronger. Flavor is quite nice. Well balanced between a light bitter hops character and some sweeter malt. Body is nice as well. This beer is flavorful without being heavy and light without being watery. A good refresher.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear light gold with a frothy white head. Biscuit aroma and flavor. Crisp clean finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber compliments of AndyReynolds - pours cloudy straw with white head. Nose is yeast/hay - not what I would expect from a kölsch. Flavor adds herbal hops and citrus fruit. A nice surprise from a style I tend to overlook. Mildly sweet with a little bitterness. Refreshing and tasty.

aroma is sweet with some fruity notes. A skunky hop presence is there giving it what one would expect from a Kölsch. The fruitiness throws it off though. Odd, but refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
My first ever Kolsch style! Pours a gorgeous, light, slightly hazy, yellow golden color with a pure white, foamy head. The head has decent retention. An 1/8 inch white cap sits on top of the beer and is perpetuated by carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom. Tart Czech Pilsener nose. A bit of green grape and some unripe banana peel. A pretty surprising mouthfeel given the appearance and the bouquet. One would expect something lighter and crisper. The mouthfeel is full and a bit thick, nearing chewy. Smooth on the finish. Really nice balance in the flavor. Sweetness and tartness work together nicely. Nothing obtrusive. It’s a really good beer overall. However, it shouldn’t be $7.99 a bomber.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very clear light yellow with little head or lacing. Very light aroma of banana and fruit esters. Light grainy taste with a little fruit character. Light mouthfeel with high crisp carbonation. Very light tasting lager that could be very refreshing in the summer but not one of my favorite styles.

2012 bomber to a snifter. Very pale, clear yellow. Aroma is light tropical fruit. Taste is the same. Very effervescent. Not much more going on. Like a very watered down Belgian blonde.
