2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
on tap @ Pensacola Bay / FL ---- Aroma of malt and European Kolsch hops. Too bad the beer itself doesn’t back the aroma. Fizzy head that disappears like a soft drink, pale amber color, a few lace dots. Taste is thin watery malt that adds a big shot of fizz before moving onto a finish that is missing any hops. Too light, too simple, not any Kolsch attributes, not going to work.

I really enjoy this beer fresh, right off the bright tank (I’ve been lucky enough to catch Mark and Rogers at the brewery twice now to do this!). Obviously a Kolsch and not a pale ale, and as such I love it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft - Lemony citrus and grains. Pale gold with a thin white head. Skunky up front bitterness and a bit of grain. Clean and slightly sweet finish. Nice as a Kolsch, but not a great pale ale.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap in Destin. It was happy hour, so I’m glad I only paid $3.00 for this one. Weak, flavorless, missing the funk of a real Kölsch and the bite of an American pale ale.
