3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy yellow-gold pour with a 1 finger, creamy, bright white head. Aroma of cereal, bread, fruity esters, hints of bubblegum and banana, floral and sweet grassy hops. Flavor is sweet cereal, toast, sweet tree fruit right away, then some light bubblegum, hints of sweet corn, nice floral notes and a lightly nutty, sweet, cereal and floral finish with some lingering fruit and bubblegum. Light body, with a creamy entry, moderate to strong and pleasantly sharp carbonation and fairly neutral finish. Really tasty, refreshing and fairly complex.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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).
