2.75/5 rDev -24.9%
On tap at the 2014 German Bierfest (Atlanta).
Clear light amber with a decent head.
Light body with a near medium carbonation.
Grassy hops with faint light malts. Lacks complexity and interest.
Lingering grassy hop aftertaste.
Hoppy for style yet uninteresting.

2.73/5 rDev -25.4%
Undated bottle at 35 degrees into not quite standard Kolsch glass
Aroma – smells like a lager to me
Head average (4 cm), white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to irregular 2 mm layer
Lacing poor – few small islands of small bubbles
Body light yellow, chill haze
Flavor starts slightly sweet but immediately becomes tart; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light, watery, soft carbonation
Appearance 2.75, Aroma 2.5, Flavor 2.75, Palate 3, Overall 2.75. Final weighted score: 2.725
This doesn’t really meet the criteria for a Kolsch – there is no dense lasting head, chill haze is present, hops are not noted in either the aroma or taste. If it was made here, it’d be called an “American Kolsch” and the criteria wouldn’t matter, but since it’s make in Koln, it should. Mediocre at best, possibly slightly skunked.
