Fantomasus' rating

Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Pours a light gold with a small white head. Aroma is faint:caramel, bread, hops is hard to detect, dough, barnyard, and some vanilla. The taste is very well balanced: light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, salty. Palate is unremarkable. A ho-hum brew besides the well balanced flavor. Won’t buy again.

jrodooo5 (1539) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Solid & clean kolsch! Decent pout that has a retaining white head & lacing. Flavor is kind of malty & actually more interesting than most in this style. Not too bad!

cmacklin (921) - 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 (3222) - 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.
