2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at a friend’s party. Nothing too exciting. But I don’t go into this with great expectations.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold with a thick, meringue head. Spicy and hoppy nose with some lacing. Easy intro with mild carbonation, a light mouthfeel, and finishing with a lingering, dry hoppiness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a hazy amber color with a short white head that went down to almost nothing very quickly. The beer was nothing kolsch like in appearance. The aroma was predominately bready and yeast with hints of citrus hops. The flavor was mild with some caramel malt sweetness and a hint of some citrus hops. The beer did have a nice refreshing quenching taste on the finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Aroma is light fruity yeast, maybe some pineapple rind. The flavor has tropical fruit, Fruit Stripe Gum, wheatty malts, and a simple grassy hop profile. Doesn’t taste or feel like it was lagered, not very Kolsch like. More like a simple golden ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden yellow, faint haze, decent eggshell head. Mild apple and yeast aroma. Pretty wimpy follow through, mild hops and sweet finish. Mild, refreshing I guess.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle. Golden pour, foamy white head. Aroma is herbal, floral, some metal notes, light fruit and grain. Smells pretty refreshing and traditional. Flavor is more of a let-down, initial flavor is wet dog, its light and a good hop chracter, relatively dry, but just falls short, it has some off notes.
