BottleA: Opaque orange - gold with a thin white head, a light lacing.N: Lime, kaffir leaves, very bready, some clove and coriander, white peppercorn, green tea.T: Sweet and a bit tart.M: Light body, a bit chalky, crisp carbonation, no alcohol presence.O: A Thai based drink. The underlying Kolsch is merely OK and this is decent if not memorable. Ferris (15396) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2015

Bottle at Hop Haven. Nice lime taste. Easy going, lime is at the front. Bit of grain. Nice enough.

Lime takes over what might otherwise be a decent kolsch. Clear straw color with small white foamy head. Aroma is mostly citrus, lime. Taste also dominated by citrus, almost like a limeade. Would be a good summer time drink, I’m a few months too late.

I’ve been digging Kolsch lately, and I want to like Burnside, so I had to try this one, lime notwithstanding. Unfortunately, it’s a novelty beer rather than a kolsch. The kaffir leaf comes on quite strong in the aroma, dominating the nose. Lemon grass is powerful in the flavor, the other elements noticable.
Drinkable but not better than it would be without the lime etc.
Visual: Pours translucent pale orange with a small head, a thin layer of micro CO2 retention, clusters of very active streams, no lacing.
Nose: mellow kaffir lime leaves, lime zest, overall bright citrus. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: incoming sourness
Mid-palate: very tangy, light-med sourness, fizzy-tingly, (MAIN) kaffir lime leaves, lime zest, barley malt, *hints* of lemongrass.
Finish: lingering acidity, bitter lime peel, subtle bitter hopped barley malt finish.
Summary: Discernable bright flavours just as advertised with a somewhat thin mouthfeel. Nevertheless, kudos to Burnside for creating a uniquely tasting yet very drinkable brew. It drinks like a better tasting Corona with Lime. chinchill (5025) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Very hazy amber; Decent off-white head
Wonderful smell mixes lime with fresh baked bread.
The flavor is much less balanced, with the lime components dominating. Good sweet/bitter/sour balance, with all three present at near equal levels.
Light body with appropriate medium carbonation.

On tap at the brewpub. Pour is clear Yellow with a small white head and good lacing. Big Limey, salty, herbs, medicinal, biscuit, an dough in the aroma. Taste is fresh like drank - somewhat salty, citrusy, biscuity, and honey. Light body with high carbonation. Bud light lime clone. ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle from unknown. Pours a slightly hazy golden color, decent amount of off white fluffy head. Aroma biscuity, some lime and keffir, but not much. Body full and and arch, but finish is a bit slippery, very complex lime making itself slowly known gradually, really nice. Not sure why the ratings are so low.
