3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden body with a very thin white head. Light, semi-sweet aroma with grain and malt notes. Fairly thin body with high carbonation. Overall, the flavor is quite good. There’s a hint of metallic flavor up front that is quickly pushed aside by sweet malt. The malt fades nicely to a grassy hop bite. Very refreshing summer brew. Nice!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes (8/19/15). This is a pretty good interpretation of a Kolsh -- it’s got some toasted grain flavor, a fairly crisp, light finish, and a bit of hop bite to firm everything up.

Taste is a lil skunky but has a really really good after taste. Color is good. This is definitely one I’ll be drinking again.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle form the discount rack. Mildly hazed gold pour, very mildly. Good aroma on this one, crisp noble hops. FLavor leaves a bit to be desired, not as dry as the nose would lead you to believe, watery as well adn hte malt is obtrusive, koelsch malt shoudl be clean and almost indecipherable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves nice lacing that coats the glass quite intensively. Nose is of grains, slight "corn" (I seem to be the only one picking this up so uh... maybe I meant straw/hay?) and grassy hops. Taste is of grains and slightly fruity, moderately bitter. Fairly dry. Body is low and carbonation high to the point of being aggressive. Overall an OK ice cold summer drink but not much more. It needs a bit more body and a toned down carbonation for it to be considered good in my book.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden color ; big , white head. Aroma of malt , hay , bread and fruits . Clean , malty , grainy taste with light bitterness. Crisp , thirst-quenching beer. Good example of the style. It looks like many people expect more , but not every beer has to have tons of hops or high ABV.

Nice to see a summer without a lot of silly fruit experiments going on. This classic Kölsch has all the refreshing lager aspects with an authentic German bite to it. Great celebratory hot weather victory beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Harvest Market, Bedford NH. Aroma is mild basement. Appearance is pale yellow with almost non-existent head with minimal lacing and fair sparkle. Taste is lightly bitter. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, lively carbonation and light bitter finish. Overall, not much to this. Admittedly, this isn’t a favorite style of mine, but I don’t think it’s terribly good within the style.
