2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Twisted Jimmys. Clean nose, not much to it. Light sweet character but not much else. Hazy golden yellow with thin white head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts clean, a bit sweet. Some carbonic fizz, mild honey. Light hop character. Clean finish and after. More like a golden ale or blond than a kölsch.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Into a stange, this was a pretty good looking somewhat trying to be a hazy burnt yellow to orange color with a slight one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute.
The smell had a fairly good enticing honey aroma just trying to get me to want more.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there as much as it wanted to be almost perfect but wasn’t.
Overall, for the most part, this was good for the style and good to me.
