3.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a light, orangish yellow, with a decent head. Has a really nice sweet, cereal, maltiness to it while you drink it, but a nice crisp hoppiness to the finish, so the maltiness doesn’t linger too long.
Bottle. Malty, bscuity, rich nose. Pale golden color. Clean, malty flavor, pemon and gradd from the hops, clean drinking but nothing special. drjoeng (1325) - SINGAPORE - NOV 21, 2015
Poured out of the bottle a cloudy blonde. 6ºSRM.
Nose is full of wheaty, beery, slighty yeasty aromas. Very "lager-like" nose. No hops.
Mouthfeel is light and sudsy. Aggresively carbonated. Palate is raw dough, wheat flour, water biscuits. There is brief lemon sourness to the palate lending it some depth.
Nice clean abbreviated hop finish.
For me this drank more like a witbier than a Kolsch. AgentAle (1761) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 23, 2015
Aroma is light sweet malts, honey, straw and clove. Taste is sweet light malts, clove, and citrus . Finishes slightly tarty. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well. olio (10342) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2015

Draught @ the 7th Ave Pub, San Diego, CA. Pours a slightly hazy yellow colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of grassy hops, husky graininess and mild floral notes.

nothing that stands out overall but very good for the style. clean and crisp, with a slight earthy herbal bite to the hops. skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Not exactly a Kolsch, but almost not a blonde either. Tasty enough to drink, but on the line. digitalviking (99) - - JUN 8, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014 Tastes like a pilsner out of a glass. Pretty bare tasting and kind of skunky. Straw color. The aroma almost completely disappeared along with the head. When I drank it out of the bottle I tasted more of the kolschiness.
