My first experience with a growler and a bloody good one at that!
Poured a pale yellow colour with a nice head and good visable carbonation. A Little aroma, maybe that of noble hops. Crisp on the palate, with a very faint fruitiness and a kind of delicateness only possible with a Kolsch. I love this style and I'm glad to see an Aussie brewery that has provided a true example.
The Growler didn't last long between the two of us. Lost a bit of carbonation as we worked through it.
It seems to be known as Colonial Kolsch Ale now, and not Spruikers Challenge as per the title here.
Serving type: growler

Drank on Tap at Colonial, Margaret River.
A - Pours a pale clear golden colour with a white frothy head that dies quick.
S - A little apple and grain but not much else (not expected for this style).
T - Soft malts and a little sweetness, a little bitter on the finish
M - Medium to light body with medium carbonation.
O - A decent Kolsch that will quench a thirst

Pours a clear, pale straw. White light head which sinks.
Passionfruit, "cat piss" nose.... (Cascade hop)
Flavours of passionfruit again, lychee, seedy/grainy/malty..crisp bread flavour.
Very light mouthfeel.... kind of like drinking Sauvignon Blanc.
The crispbread maltiness is similar to German Kolschs I've tried. The Cascade is a differentiating factor, however, but not unwelcome. An interesting & tasty combination.

Clear pale golden colour. Small head with some retention and lacing. Aroma is fruity (passionfruit) and of citrusy hops. Tastes lightly fruity with a lingering slightly bitter, flowery hop finish. Light in body, medium carbonation. A well balanced, refreshing and crisp ale.
