Draft at Squatters in SLC airport. Crisp amber golden with moderate lace. Drinks with a tangy maltiness that’s quite lagerish. Almost a green apple finish. (#3622, 7/31/2009).

clear pale golden color with a scant soapy white head.
smells a whole lot like oranges... mixed with peaches, grain, flowery hops, mild spice and yeast.
the flavor is the same... quite orange-y with a slight bitterness on the finish. the palate is fairly dry throughout.
medium bodied and terribly refreshing. 7/3/7/4/15/3.6

Appearance: Pours out a golden-hued body with a smallish, white head.
Smell: Lightly sweetish, grainy sniffs of light pale and pilsener malts with some mild notes of white grapes and Noble hops.

Bottle courtesy of superdave’s overstuffed cooler on the 5th of July gathering, if I recall correctly. Pours golden in color with a trim white head. Smells and tastes of naval oranges. Also features added notes of sweet white corn, lemon, and mild hops. A nice summer brew.

Bottle from douglas88. Thanks! Gold color with a quickly disappearing white head. Mild aromas of fruit and yeast. Medium body with lightly frothy carbonation. Rather citric with bread. Finish has light sweetness balanced by noblish hops. Quite nice.

Bottle, shared by Emacgee. Thanks bro! Actually broke out my authentic kolsch glasses for this one and slammed like they do in deutschland. Very clean and refreshing, and better than some german kolschs i’ve had here. Probably fresher too.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to Douglas88. 12oz twist-off bottle. Clear golden color, no head. Unfiltered? huh. Sweet pils malt aroma, bready, floral hop, straw. Flavor is a pale malt sweetness. Decent hop bitterness, not to overpower the light bodied malt. Some fruitiness, light berries in the finish. Very refreshing, Crisp and clean.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Utah Brewers Co-op. This is a new seasonal from Wasatch, and is different than the Kolsch available at times at the brewpub on tap. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. The aroma is nice; sweet malts mostly. The flavor is very easygoing; rich almost musty malts, light hops and sweeter caramel or honey flavors. Nice.
