Keg at Sir John A., Ottawa. Clear deep golden, small head. Fruity grassy nose. Mid dry with light-medium body and dense, well rounded mouthfeel. Firm malt, on the fruity/bready side. Mild spicy hops. Lightly minerally with mid bitter finish. Unassuming and charming, with the drinkability that befits a kölsch. One of the best examples outside Cologne. One of the best keg versions.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of light citrus with hints of caramel malt. It has a nice bitterness to it and very crisp. It is quite smooth compared to other lighter beers.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Jaune un brin doré, un tantinet voilé. Petit col discret. Nez de sirop de maïs et de grain. Goût facile de pain, de miel, avec une finale minimement surette. Pas impressionnante. Ordinaire, même. Goûte incroyablement comme la "pilsner" maison Brew House que je me suis confectionné voilà un mois... Au final, elle reste bonne et agréable à boire (en quantité).

Draft at Cooper’s. Clear gold thin white head. Average lacing. Grass, herbal notes and some pale malt. Crisp, clean, and fairly hoppy. Can’t complain, hits what I’m looking for in the style pretty well.

Drank so many times, never rated? Clear light gold sparkling pour with lively white head. Smells and tastes of fresh floral hops, some slight bitterness, high carbonation for maximum refreshment... Goes down smooth with a nice dry grain finish. Tasty!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear straw with one fat finger of fizzy white head diminishing to a persistent cap, moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pale crackery malt, bready yeast, light citrus and floral. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Light body, lively carbonation, crisp clean finish. (3/5)
Clean, crisp and easy-drinking. It’s not going to challenge you, by any means, but it’s one you can easily session. The style is classic Kölsch, top-fermented with an ale yeast, but cold conditioned (“lagered”), making it a true hybrid style. The brewer says this one is done with (among others) pilsner and acidulated malts, in addition to wheat and carafoam. I’m not certain I’ve had one done with acidulated malt before, and I’m tempted to attribute at least some of the crispness in the finish to that, though I wouldn’t go so far as to call it actually tart. Pleasant enough, if a little pedestrian, and certainly one that wouldn’t be unwelcome under an umbrella on a hot day. (13/20)

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy, golden. The aroma has some herbal continental hop, mellow pale malt. Has a dryish character with the same pale malt, a lighter hop and a touch of grainy sourness. It’s that sour grainy stuff that sorts of drags this beer down in the finish.
