BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle with a best before December 2012. Crystal clear pale yellow hued body with a smallish sized white head. Some retention. Sulfury and slightly light struck aroma with medium DMS. Sweet and bready malt once you get past the vegital notes. Medium herbal, earthy, noble like hops. A hint of ester and light body odor (go figure on that one). Flavors are strongly DMS, sweet, stewed vegetables, light cardboard, sweat, and light herbal hops. A bit sharp. Medium bitter, dry. Fuller carbonation, light body. Worse than expected.

DYCSoccer17 (3546) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 18, 2015
500mL bottle purchased at Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa. Best by May 2015, so it’s probably 6 months old. Aroma has some metallic, sweet, corny DMS notes. There is a light mineral quality present. Hops might be grassy, but very faint. Transparent pale yellow body with a medium, very rapidly dissipating white head present, Starts with some biscuit malt sweetness, before some DMS corn comes through in the middle. Finishes with a little minerality. Meh.

Taste- Malt and bread flavor with spices and hops, real good combo. Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall- A real good beer, definitely give it a try.

FatPhil (12181) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 27, 2015
500ml bottle (motorway service station between Dusseldorf and Olpe)
Has the same pale lagery aroma that previous kolsches have had, but this has way more fruity esters. Ditto in the taste. Palate a little thin, carbonation high. Finish bready, estery, some slightly extracty hops. Yup, this is a style that’s best fresh and close to the source.

Nocturne (1462) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Keg at Piccadilly Tap, Manchester. Clear golden shade. Patches of white head atop. Aroma and taste consist of lemon, honey and breadiness. There is however a slight chemical note which detracts from both. Decent enough even if I’m not a huge fan of this style.

Bottle. Bready aroma with some floral notes. On the palate it is sweet, but I pick up cardboard (slightly oxidized).
