Tasted on tap at Red Arrow Brewing, Duncan BC. Good kolsch, clean and drinkable. Gerbeer (4208) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2016
On tap. Pours a clear gold with little head. Aromas of cardboard and cereal. Flavors of same. Where’s the kolsch? Oakes (19532) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2016
Light straw, aroma has diacetyl, rotten sewage, compound yeast issues, thin, no hop. Nothing good here. Ferris (17762) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2016
Can - Odd yeasty grains. Clear gold with a small white head. Light sweetness and a bit of a dry finish. Not good at all. fiulijn (21522) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2016
Tasting at Matt’s, can
mcberko (20253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2016
Pale yellow color. Weird smell, stale, some honey. Dry, well carbonated, with a touch of bready malts, and low-ish bitterness.
Useless, but not offensive.
330mL can, pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is super skunky, with cheap corn adjuncts -- smells terrible. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of cheap corn adjuncts and a skunky grassy quality. Really quite bad. What is the point of making something like this? As bad as the worst macros out there.

Imbibed via bomber.
Appearance: A sturdy, not entirely fleeting, head floating atop a peach glow surprisingly dim and warm considering other kolsch beers whose acquaintance I have met. Lacing was also substantial given the subgenre.
Smell: After an initial muted, uninspiring light generic malt scent, faint esters began to emerge. These delicate hints soon manifested into somewhat more substantial wisps of honey and unassuming candy.
Taste: Lemon tartness greeted me at the gate, which was unexpected given the light floral, sugar scents. However, once traversing deeper, an earthy leather band extended its greetings before dissipating into a lingering farewell of coarse honey. In brief, it was a visit that began with a light slap which all too quickly ended in simple sweetness.
Feel: Muted prickly carbonation and a dry finish without any cloying aftertaste.
Overall: A recommended somersault of tart grapefruit rinds and rustic honey resting in a warm glow.

On tap. The beer is a basic Kolsh. Some lemon and biscuit taste. Weird rubber smell.

Pours a large white foamy head atop a clear golden body. Diacetyl nose. Flavour is buttery and grain with a background of club soda. Pretty off target. Purchased at the brewery. Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
On tap at Jake's On The Lake. Clear golden yellow, fading white foam. Mild biscuit malt aroma and taste, some lemony citrus, slightly bland. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Decent. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
