2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Clear golden color with white head. Nice lacing. Has a lingering aftertaste of non hoppy bitterness that sticks to your palate forever. Slight yeast aroma. Not a bad brew on special but not worth drinking again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is very pleasantly fragrant. It’s got a light and crisp flavor to it that makes it a great drink to pair with a heavier meal. Very slightly sour aftertaste, but not in an off-putting way.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Originally reviewed: 5/17/09. This is a style that I know little about, actually, this is my first experience with it.
Pours a very pale, clear, light gold with a thin popping white head on top. Pops away to nothing very quickly. No lacing. Smells of corn adjuncts, grain, and hints of honey sweetness.
Mouthfeel is poppy and fizzy as well. Pretty high carbonation. Flavor is of roasted grains, and biscuits. Finishes very tame with no lingering aftertaste at all. Slight bitterness, but not much. Drinkability is high, as I could see this being a good summer thirst-quencher. Not bad. I’ll have to check out more of this style. I’m now interested.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear, rather wan straw yellow with a typical and not persistent white head. Malty aroma is more hopeful, though, with hints of apple, butterscotch and hops. Flavor is malty with subtle fruity and hoppy notes, nothing special. Texture has below average body and average fizz. Guess this isn’t Big Boss’ best, or maybe my bottle came from a bum batch.

The kolsch style is not one I am well versed in and I do not like light beers.I think it has more flavor then they give credit for.It maybe light for style but not as light as I was expecting.Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head.Aroma is sweet,malty,citrus and a touch of yeast.Starts out malty then a little bitter with a lite hop finsh.Good summer beer would drink again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours as though someone dropped a tootsie roll in a pale lager. Not much on the nose. A bit of fruitiness on the tongue with a slight touch of copper on the finish. Not my favorite style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is pretty close, as american efforts just keep getting better. Light fruity fresh with subtile hops and bitter clean finish. Just a tad light overall but close.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyable and seems to hit the style pretty well as far as I can tell. Crisp but not harsh, a softer lager. Hops comes through, could have been a little more lively in the glass. Still, nice effort, I could drink this anytime. Thanks jsanda.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours a slightly cloudy golden orange color with a white head.
S: Citrus and floral hops to begin with. Some bready malts and a hint of grass follows. Light lemon peel notes and a little bit of straw. Just a little bit yeasty and fairly crisp.
T: Starts off somewhat sweet and malty with some nice bread flavor. Despite their prominence on the aroma, there is only a light citrus hop note. A touch of straw, mild grass, and a soft bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Usually random kolsches are not beers I expect to be any good, but this was pretty decent.
