3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours straw to pale gold with modest white head. Mild, bright aroma of grapefruit and hay. Flavor is crisp, tart grape and green apple. Slight hop presence. Finish is dry and slightly bitter. Thin mouthfeel, light bodied. Haven’t had many Kolsch style beers, but this reminds me of an English bitter. Crisp and refreshing, but one-dimensional.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had to get this one since I just visited Bryce Canyon. Bottle pour light yellow with rapidly dissipating white head. Nose crystal malt, mild grain, some lemon. Taste fairly crisp up front, then similar to nose. Some citrus mid palate and then grainy malt late. No odd flavors. Not my favorite style of beer, but I can imagine this being refreshing after hiking Queen’s Garden and Wall Street.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ultimately dissatisfying beverage that is so rounded off you are wondering if you are drinking at all. Low on flavor and aroma, although quite clean.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Boulder Liquor Mart. Pours a light orange appearance with a white head. Aroma has some angel food cake, bread, dough, lemon, soft aroma. Off dry. Low bitterness. Vanilla cake, lemon flavor. Not a ton going on but it’s easy to chug and clean.

This is a lighter beer that has a fresh and tasty mix of hops and malts. It is light and crisp.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pale golden with small head. Light boozy with some lemon. Almost tart. A bit strange for a kolsch, but decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straw hazy color, white head. aroma is lemony and a little pilsner like. Crisp, dry, lemon, light yeast flavors. Hop character is very pilsner like too. Well crafted (nothing off or unpleasant), very drinkable, but I’d rather be drinking a Hop Nosh.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Straw, noble hops, pils malt aromas. Veggie, corn, straw, spicy flavors. The veggie/corn flavor is a little off-putting. Also a touch metallic. I wouldn’t get this one again.
