4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The biggest problem is finding it. Too often kolsch as a Summer Ale is only available in late summer. There are a few places that will serve it on tap on an irregular basis. If you’re tired of one pale after another try it you won’t be disappointed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Widmer, pours a clear dull yellow with a small white head. Aroma is typical for the style, with dry biscuity malt. Flavour is crisp and dry, with dry biscuity malt and some crisp grassy bitterness. Really nice kolsch, balanced beautifully and with the nice subtleties that the style can be executed with. Very good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty basic stuff. Has that common corn grain flavor as beers of this style do...but it’s really smooth and there’s no off flavors. Easy drinker

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gotta love the Timbers cap. Anyway, bomber from Albertsons. Good price, 3$ or so. Pours a super clear light yellow color, almost totally clear. A light grainy nose .The flavor is light toasted malts, some perfume, light spices akin to cedar, a bit of pear. Pretty smooth, very light. Good. I’d booze with this at a Timbers game.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours one finger of head on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma is light grain. Not much but fine.
The taste has a moderate lemon and grapefruit bitterness but still easy drinking.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
A fine enough drink.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle:   Pale straw, fairly clear, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Straw and hay on the nose.   Not terribly sweet.   Grainy up front, mealy backside.   Lingering straw and hay, and also a strong mealiness.   Not as clean as the Occidental I had the other night.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Really mealy on the finish.   Clean otherwise, but not really my type.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from 22oz bomber from Made in Oregon. This is an easy drinking beer, as to be expected about Kolsch style beers. Perhaps a 9.5 in category- likely the best Kolsch I’ve had. Color is transparent light hay color with a white, quickly disappearing head. No hops on palate but there is a corn cereal flavor along with faint rose water. 5.5 BD 9-20-13
