cmacklin (1091) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2016
355ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a small, short lived, white head that leaves spotty lacing. Sweet, fruity aroma with bready malt and grain. Sweet flavour of bready malt, grain and fruit with a mildly bitter, hoppy finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Boring... but so is the style.

drpimento (3528) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Aroma is a nice fresh beer at first, but then with a second whiff - medicinal. Flavor has some crispness from carbonation, but also some heavy malt sweetness that’s a bit out of place. Color is darker than traditional Kolsch. Ok beer.

On tap in Sitka. Pours a golden color with white head. Straw, grainy, slight earthy, husk aromas. Straw, grainy, earthy flavors. Nothing mind blowing, not as good as I remembered from 8 years ago

Popoff91 (124) - Oregon, USA - MAY 29, 2016
12-ounce bottle in a pint glass. Pours dark amber. Not bad; a little heavier than I think of for a "Summer" ale, but good nonetheless.

Smoothsippin (48) - Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2016
Pours a dark golden with a white head. Earthy aroma. Mildly sweet/ bittersweet into the mouth and on the swallow. Lingering finish, pleasantly so. Refreshing and a decent summer beer. Not bad for the kolsch style.
