2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at ABC Collegeville. Pours clear light gold with white head. Nose was pale malt, mild hops, butterscotch. Tasted of pale malt, mild hops, and a definite buttery flavor and finish. I hope this is not a trend, as the last 3-4 new beers here have been terrible.
Earlier Rating: 9/4/2008 Total Score: 3.2
Poured deep gold with creeamy white head. Nose was grainy pale malt, mild hopcitrus, mild fruit. Tastes crisp, not hefty of palate, with fruity, lemongrassy hopcitric, and bready pale malt flavors, with decent balance. A good example of this style.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at the brewery. Very mild pilsner malt aroma with a bit of mild fruity hop character. Golden amber clear with thin head. Medium body with medium-light carbonation. Starts sweet with some corn and DMS. A bit watery. Not very crisp. Decent flavor but not really reminiscent of a kölsch.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
This is not a very Kolsch-like beer at all, let alone a very drinkable one. It poured a hazy and cloudy golden color with virtually no head and no lacing. The aroma was almost non-existant. The flavor was overly fruity with no hoppiness to speak of. The finish tasted like strawberry Pez. This was truely an undrinkable and nasty beer.

hazy yellow, borderline cloudy. Aroma is sweet grain. Flavor is grass, hay, slight wheatiness even. Light bodied but flavorful. An excellent kolsch.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Like their lager, this was nice for its type. Crystal clear gold, small head, surprisingly good lacing, more like a cask than a keg in mouth and appearance. Not much happening in the nose. Taste has grassy notes, a little pale malt, a little hoppy bitterness, in good balance. Long bitter finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Location: Tap at the Brewpub, Harrisburg location, 6/13/10
Aroma: It has grains, honey, and corn on the dull nose
Appearance: Has a clear orange-gold look to it
Flavor: The taste is light sweet, not much else, similar flavors to the nose
Palate: It has a fairly light body
This was pretty boring stuff, overall. Oh well...
