3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange color with foam layer. Pale ale nose with some hoppy bitterness. Hoppy bitter taste, some tartness. Dry bitter aftertaste. The whole beer is more pale ale than all other kölsch i know.

Surprisingly orange color with small tan head. Aroma is hoppy, resinous, light toasted malts. Taste is toasted malts, bitter, light-bodied, quite resinous. Jammy mouthfeel. Kölsch? Well... But it’s a nice beer.

Clear amber body had me a bit worried about this beer any thing even remotely kolsch-like. However, this was actually very solid. I should know better than to doubt dark horse! Light cracker nose, light herbal hops. Taste was nice and dry, lots of biscuit, some caramel, but it’s never sweet or astringent. Dry and bitter finish. Excellent beer, not really a kolsch though, but who cares. Yum.
