2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber pours a cloudy yellow beer with a large frothy white head. Scent is some bread and lemons? Taste is light, not unpleasant but in no way will I go for it again.....just seems a little bland compared to Coast’s kolsch.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow and fizzy in appearance, this is surprisingly flavorful, with notes of honey and a clean, brisk finish. This is a bit of an eccentric beer, but there is definitely a place for it, especially in the summertime.

Yellow pour with visible active carbonation and a slight filmy white head. Aroma is of hay and grass. Light body. Strong flavor of yeast, hay and funk. Slight spice on the back end. Crisp finish. Tastes good enough but pretty ordinary.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 22 oz bomber. Light golden pour, slightly hazy, good bubble action, crisp, sticky white head that leaves a nice film of lacing. Pleasant, hoppy aroma with some grassy notes. Flavor has some buttery accents with a brief hint of nuttiness. Mouthfeel is just a bit muddled, but does not ruin it. Very solid Kölsch.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Paul’s: Light hazy yellow with an enormous expanding white head (I initially thought it was an infected bottle) The aroma is dry, chalky and crackery with some crackery notes. Has a light fluffy body. Some dry chalky phenols with a crackery pils-malt presence. Not as clean as a Kolsh should be, but still a sessionable, light ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from the brewery. Pours a light golden clear with a massive almost exploding white head- somewhat lasting- not tight a bit bubbly some lace. Aroma is on the herbal and grassy side, quite highly hopped- decent crackery malts- a bit off. Flavor is crisp and clean malts, some crackery some pils, moderate to high herbal hints, grassy hops, light spice- carbonation is a bit too high. I thought it was going to be infected but it wasn’t, it was a decent beer just doesn’t fit quite into the kolsch category.
