Hanuta06 (319) - Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Made in Oregon. Aroma: light floral hops. Appearance: very small, frothy, white, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, sparkling light-yellow body. Taste: lightly sweet and citrusy initial flavor and lightly sour finish with average duration. Palate: light-bodied with watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: the label on the bottle makes this look like the most disgusting beer on the planet, but once I poured it into a Seattle Sounders glass, the beer tasted pretty good. However, I doubt I would ever drink this again due to the label.

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.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2013
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.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2013
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.

Syzzer (583) - Oregon, USA - SEP 20, 2013
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

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 23, 2013
This was shared with strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured gold with a white head. Light lacing. Citrus nose with light spice. Light to medium body. Spicy mouth feel. Flavor is citrus and spice. :Light bitter finish. Very refreshing and easy drinking. Great session beer.

Strykzone (4826) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This looked like a Kolsch being clear golden with a lot of carbonation visible. A lightly gold tinted head of a couple of fingers. This was definitely hop forward. The hops were complex and more so than I typically attribute to this style. They were fruity, citrusy, sulfury, and grapefruity. The grapefruit was in the after taste and was slow to fade. They had some spice to them, too. Most of that faded by the finish and that was more like a sweet fruity candy. This might not be exactly per style was so very easy to drink and would make for a great session beer.

Drank this out of a plastic cup with my dad on the Alaska Air flight from SF to PDX. Good, Mellon stuff and way to go airline and Widmer for making it free.

bhensonb (10792) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy gold with a slight white head. Aroma is lemon citrus with a little bread. Med minus body. Flavor is a little lemon citrus, maybe more than a little, with bread. If memory serves, this would stand up in Koln.

ericdevin (672) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours a medium straw color, some tan head. Aroma is somewhat lacking, maybe a hint of cereal doughiness, but nobody drinks Kolsch for the aroma. Body is very lively, finish has some grassy bitterness. Very easy drinking, with enough complexity to be enjoyed thoroughly. I like Occidental’s Kolsch a bit more, but for the price (between 3-4 for a 22), it’s a win.
