3.5
solidfunk (8954) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Pretty damn good if this is supposed to be a kolsch. Or at least its better than your average kolsch. Sharp barley crispness and a decent dose of citrus hops. Pours cloudy orange with decent head and lacing. Barely is huge. Light to medium bitter finish. Tap at brewpub.

3.7
douglas88 (9187) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours a yellow color with a small white head. A light dusty nose, some lemons. The flavor is lemon fruity hops, earthy dry malts, some toffee. Pretty clean. Good.

3.3
mansquito (6437) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Draft at the place where they make it: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is slightly peppery, plenty enough hoppy in the most German way possible, and some grass. Taste is sufficiently bitter. Pale malts and nice bready backbone for the hops. I couldn’t call this a proper Kolsch. More like a hoppy German blonde.

2.9
coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Draft at brewery. Poured clear gold with a medium-sized white head. Aroma was grassy, lightly floral, light malt. Flavor was grassy with notes of very light smoke and pepper; light malt, low sweetness; mild bitterness; light fruit.

Draft on January 10th at Bluejacket. Light hop flavor but kind of plain. Wanted to try different styles, probably least impressed with this one that night.
