22-oz. Bottle. Pours gold with lots of tiny fast rising bubbles and a small white foamy head. Malt (hay, straw) and sour yeast (sweat) with fruit hops, some faint banana notes. Yeast (dough, sweat) and malt (grain) creamy buttery flavor. Light bodied palate.

Even though this beer sat outside over 2 years and then in the fridge another 6 months, my brother really likes it.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The pour and aroma of this beer will fool even the most cunning connoiseur. Has a rich, spicy, hoppy aroma that will leave you salivating at the mouth. Bring it to the mouth and... yuck! What the hell is that. Tastes like a skunk dipped in one of Wonka’s everlasting gobstoppers. I’d say avoid this at all costs, but, well, you’ll manage to finish it because every time you bring it to your mouth your nose registers "mmm, delicious! maybe it’ll taste better this time around."

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
beer pours a very pretty (and bright) deep gold with an ok head that left little lace. nose is rather sweet and lightly toasty - like there is a lot of Munich malt in there. flavor is more of the same - sweet and malty, with perhaps a slightly nutty flavor. a handful of hops in the finish add some slight spiciness to the balance. beer is rather sweet for a summer beer, and seems to be a bit malty for a Kolsch - it drinks more like a Vienna.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Translucent golden, pale, thin white fizzy head, spotty lacing, slight carbonation.   Pale malty aroma, somewhat like an old sweater.   Fairly sweet malt flavor, sweetenes even more as it finishes.   Very subtle apple or pear skin at the end.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Very clean and crisp finish.   Good summer thirst quencher.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kinda disappointing. Very yellow coloring, with small head. Aroma is light, with spice profiles. Kinda mellow in the flavor department, with no distinguishing charasteristics. Still, Alaskan is quality, and you can’t disrespect that.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber Not much of a head, and it really looked like corn juice. But, it was surprisingly refreshing. I mean, what do Alaskans know about summer anyway?? (kidding, of course) Aroma was a little light with honey, vanilla and some spices. It had a rather sharp flavor and a playful mouthfeel. More honey and spices in the flavor. Very drinkable.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A true style Kolsch, very light and refreshing. The sublte fruit smell, light bodied and crisp finish. Very good with food.

Well it was 45 minutes between pour and the time the site actually responded and I didn’t write the notes down so this is pretty much from memory courtesy of a good ole ASP 500 error.
I really can’t remember cause it was the 8th beer I rated today. i think it was kinda malty and sweet and I recall a big 2 finger head that faded fast to a half pinky head...maybe honey colred. maybe not bad. I’m not sure.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells great, apply, light - looks like a pale lager. Tastes much better than a pale lager, though. Overall, not real exciting, but it definitely can hit the spot. Not good with food.
