3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Tap 25. Ha, now that I see that this is a kolsch and not an APA it makes much more sense. It pours a clear orange color with an off white head. The aroma is like sweet hot wort with some mild fruity esters. The flavor is sweet and grainy with some fruitbasket. Light on the palate and drinkable. An OK beer.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2011 Nose is wheat and ever so sour. Good body and initially bready malt, followed by some grass and finishing strongly malt centic. A bit bland, but highly quaffable. Solid summer sess.

Tap - I expected something different. This was an unbalanced, boring, sawdust tasting lager. NFG

Tap at the brewery. Gold pour, whit head. Nice clean hoppy aroma with some bready/light caramel notes. Flavor is spicy hops, crisp malts, overall a nice pale.

Drank it during a recent black out in San Diego. Was impressed with the smoothness and drink ability.

Pours yellow with a thin white head. Smells mildy of wheat but switches gears to a dry hop, grainy flavor. It felt more like a pilsner to me, but it was good either way.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured from a bottle into a pint glass at Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza in La Mesa. Color was clear golden. Minimal head and minimal film on the sides. The lacing, however, stayed for awhile. Appeared to be heavy on the carbonation.
Smells were skunky malts and somewhat bitter. Grainy malts also were involved.
No improvement on the taste. Skunky malts lead the way. A tad bit bitter at the end.
Medium-to-high carbonation. Medium body.
A pretty big disappointment, considering how much I enjoy the Calico Ale.
