3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sampler. Pours golden with a white head. Although I jsut noticed I have only one Kolsch rating, I have had several. This was certainly the best and most memorabel. Taste was caramel malts, lightly fruity (a touch tropical even), light hop. Palate was very pleasingly soft and almost creamy. Overall, a good brew, but a fantastic hot day brew that has just enough fruitiness not to be boring.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample in a flight at the Brewpub. Pours pale yellow with a medium, white head and good lacing. The aroma is lemon rinds, biscuits, and mild resin. The flavor is mild bitterness up front, with some bready sweetness in the finish. Light body, crisp, with a clean finish. Overall, this is a well balanced, supremely drinkable, and very nice Kölsch.

Maybe Kölsch just isn’t my thing. Tried this as a low ABV change of pace. Didn’t do it for me. Pours thin and light, which is okay when paired with a little more carbonation, but none was there. Taste was a bit synthetic. Think I will stick with the German Hefeweizens. Draft - Wrecking Bar - Atlanta, GA

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear gold, light white head. Nose is mild (although the smell of cheese fries from the plate of the guy next to me at the bar is making it a little difficult to get.) Palate is a little creamy, but also crisp, with a light malt profile and low citrus hops. Easy-drinking.
