2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I would call this a micro starter. Very Easy drinking golden ale. I get a hint of honey but not much else. Good for the summer slammer beer

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2007 I will admit, a Kolsch is not my style. A light, grassy, thin beer. Very little hops, not much more interesting than a macro lager.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden yellow/amber. Aromas of lemon, grains, celery. Flavor is crisp, dry, sweet malt, and a mild hop.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. one finger lacy head that dissipates slowly. pale light golden appearance. Fruity, berry aroma. Quick, smooth finish. Too thin - more like a coors light without the after-taste (ok, probably a little harsh). Great beer, though, for a penalty beer in a drinking game . . . harsh enough to impose pain but not as brutal as college beers used to be.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light aroma of malt and citrus. Pale gold color with frothy white head. Very light taste - citrus like, very thin, a bit of wet paper, a very little hop at the end. Very drinkable, but so is water. Having said that, it is head and shoulders above Budweiser. And eventually some bitter hop arises to be noticed. Maybe even a hint of apricot. There are some sleeper aspects.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky golden color with a white, whispy head. Malty taste with hints of citrus. Crisp and clean on the palate. Refreshing and decent.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Pours a pale clear straw color with large but diminshing lacy white head. Rather light body and carbonation. Lightly citrus aroma. The taste is lightly spicy, sort of like a watered-down Belgian style. Everything about this beer is barely there except for the crisp citrus finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A decent summer beer, but way too light, even for the style. Toasted cereal maltiness with some zesty citrus spice

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
found in a microbrew pack. Decent for the style, but mostly middle of the road type beer. Very little hops, but enough flavor.
