2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a very clear yellow with a thin white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of corn and not much else. Taste is lightly acidic and off-dry. More corn, some other cereals. Somewhat crisp. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is slick. Overall it was not a disaster but not even close to being a proper kölsch.

Can - pours a turbid unfiltered copper-gold ale in the glass with a decent 2 finger off white cap that laces the glass sides well. Aroma is intriguing - floral, caramel, citrus peel and pine with a musty earthy tone....this is NOT Kolsch by any stretch. had a bulky robust mouth feel, lively hopping but very earthy. Flavor profile has caramel malts and bitter hopping in balance with musty-woodsy side tones - goes to an increasingly bitter and dry finish with a hop bit at the end - very rounded and mellow yet bright hoppy and robust - My guess is this is more like a lagered robust ESB, far better than I was expecting. bunget (1033) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2017
Can. Clear yellow body, medium white head with average retention, some lacing. Aroma of grains, hay, apricots...sugary. Taste of grains, some herb, corn and honey. A tad too sweet, but not bad overall. Canmoore (497) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2017
Pours a clear straw colour, with a small white head. Aroma notes include faint esters, faint apricot, apple peel, and caramel. Tasting notes include honey, caramel, and biscuit. Thing light feel with a dry and slightly herbal finish. In fact this isn't that bad of a kölsch imitation! czar (9503) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2017
can. pours almost clear bright gold with a small white cap offering minimal retention and lacing. faint lagering fruitiness - very few apricots; lightly caramelized honey-ish maltiness, relatively clean yeast action. moderate carbonation, light body - thin but not watrery; dry, almost crisp but kind of bland herbal finish. fruity and round like a golden ale with very few kölsch attributes. still a pretty decent macro kölsch on north american soil.

This smells like beer. Tastes like beer too. No hop aroma to speak of. Plain grain malt. Solid dose of bitterness. Drinkable but boring af.

pours a pale yellow with minimal head. some hop and mixed aromas - tin maybe? a bit of malt flavour with stale hops. finish is mild bitterness. not impressive. Radek Kliber (7487) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 13, 2017

Aroma plain grainy with hint of honey, low hop profile.
Top: medium lighter white top.
Base: fine chill haze, gold
Palate : medium bodied, average plus carbonation, average finish.
Taste: front is most authentic of style. Slightly fruity, floral with mild noble hop hints. Shallower, plain finish with lager like clean note. Top end semi dry, prickly with touch of hops.
Other notes dry, sparkly end of spectrum for style.
Pours a huge foamy white head, good retention. Has a clear yellow golden appearance. Average carbonation. Grainy and malty aromas, nothing special sticking out. Flavours are basically identical to aroma, maybe a little bit of sweet malts and grass. Mild and dry finish. It’s ok, refreshing and made for hot days.
