3.5/5 rDev -1.7%
A - Well its much deeper "blonde" than one would expect a deep shade of orange brown with hardly any head.
S - Getting better a distinct smell of lemon zest and flesh with some grains and malts. A bit sweet really.
T - Well it went down pretty smooth the lemon was interesting but wasn't a lemonade like sourness more of a subdued sugary lemon. Mild grains, little hops and mostly sweet malts.
M - Light bodied and easy to quaff.
Overall a simple blonde and easy tick for only $1.75 for the single. Would not get it again though since I wasn't overly impressed.

As seems typical with kölsch produced in the U.S., it's heavy and thick. Grain bill seems high. And the lemon does bring some tang. Feel has a pretty full carbonation to it. It's not really something that fits to style. And it's little more than just another beer.

3.35/5 rDev -5.9%
Poured from the bottle into a stange glass.
A very shampoo like and fleeting white head about three fingers tall is made, settling to a soapy collar that after about 5 minutes disappears nearly completely. Body is filled with lots of cola carbonation. but then settles to pinhead rising carbonation to match with many slow rising bubbles through a clear and nearly crystal brassy yellow golden body.
Nose is a hint of fruity ester but there's a faint noticeable tinge of fussel like alcohol here also. Sense of crisp malt possibly coming.
Palate doesn't seem to hold up on first sip. Body comes off quite watery, with a slight grainy finish. Muted crispness and bready malts hint slightly but fall off on the swallow. Slightly grassy and muted finish with a good amount sticky yeast quality as well. Kind of has a bit of macro tasting sensations to it also.
This is alright for drinking but as far as Kölsch goes there's much better out there. Still life could be worse I suppose and there's no harm no foul here.

Thanks to TroyG2352 for this one
App- I wasn't expecting the coloring on this one. More like a small IPA mixed with a tripel per se. It was very hazy and golden with orange streaks. A small 1/4" head was there and then left. Didnt see any lace or cling either. It was a bit dense as well. Wasnt one of those hazy see through beers. Bit more dense.
Smell- The nose on this was pretty straight foward. Had a nice citrus tinge with some underwhelming malts. I am not sure if this is like all Kolsch's. Havent had that many. Its only 4% but had a weird booze note behind it.
Taste- I really wasnt expecting these flavors. It really was an interesting beer as I put on Untappd. The citrus was more like a small IPA and the malt combo was similar to a wheatwine. Had that flavor combo without the bite. I will say I think it was better than average but am still scratching my head as to what it is.
Mouth- It was more of a lighter medium body and drank bigger than the ABV would indicate. The carbonation was a bit prickly and smooth at the same time with the malt bill filling in some nice gaps. The residual flavors are of citrus and a tinge I cant place.
Drink- It's a pretty tasty beer. A bit unique and can't put my finger on what it is actually. I cant tell if its a profile I havent had or just cant place the flavors.

3.95/5 rDev +11%
Golden yellow in color with a deep haze. Poured with a fizzy white foam that slowly reduced to a wispy cap. Bready malt and light floral aromas with light fruity, sweetness beneath. Medium bodied with assertive but not not overly-aggressive carbonation. Bready malt and floral hop flavors from beginning to end with a fruity sweetness beneath. Floral hop character bites toward the dry finish. Finishes with a sweet bready and floral aftertaste.
