2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light amber beer with a medium foamy bright white head. Non-descript nose that is reminiscent of a standard pilsner with some papery hops and not much else. The flavor starts with some mild toasted bread that gives way quickly to a cardboard-like bitterness. The effervescence is perky and gives it a decent mouth feel, but overall this is a pretty boring beer. If lemon peel is in there, I am not picking it up--some citrus would have definitely improved it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was poured into a stange.
The appearance was a hazy yellow color with a soft one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving a concave lacing sticking to the glass.
The smell had a sweet lemon over top of a light biscuity to grassy sweetness.
The taste was moderately sweet between the lemon and the biscuity to grassiness. A quick sweet aftertaste leads to a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat fairly light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonated decently as a kolsch, bitterness sits appropriate for a kolsch.
Overall, its a decent kolsch, not as refreshing as I had hoped for, do-able in a pinch.

Pours gold, slightly cloudy with thin fast dissipating head. Aroma is skunked pale lager with a hint of lemon and pepper. One dimensional flavor - but somewhat satisfying. Nice tart lemon with a little lasting flavor.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Malty, nutty, bready. A little earthiness and yeasty. Some tartness, but very little hops. Not a standout.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a very small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is pretty off considering that this is supposed to be a Kolsch. It’s very sweet smelling with a heavy fruitiness, there’s almost a white grape like note in there. The flavor is too heavy and under attenuated, leaving a sticky sweet and fruity finish. There’s virtually no hops to speak of in here. I want something crisp, light, and refreshing, and this is none of those. Heavy and sweet with fine fizzy carbonation. Quite a disappointment this one.

Light, bright gold in color, with a foamy head. Sweet, with some fruit and honey notes. Not too strong but definitely drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Very light golden color with just a tinge of orange. The head is very big, airy, white. The aroma is sweet and grassy. The beer drinks with a creamy consistency, and a very light grainy appeal. Not a bad summer sipper. (#4740, 8/22/2012)
