3.56/5 rDev +0.8%
Appearance: It has a nice clear golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down somewhat fast and leaves some lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet caramelly malts, some breadiness and faint citrus.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some sweet bready and caramelly malts, faint citrus and some floral hops.
Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a decent overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.
Well, until I started typing this I had no idea this was considered a kolsch. I mean, why would they call it a pale ale if it was another style altogether? It does explain things, though... It pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises sweet biscuit, flowers, and a hint of candied orange peel in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, but with more of the orange peel and some mild grass for good measure. Overall, a decent little kolsch, and a sad excuse for a pale ale, depending on how you wanna look at it.

Well, I bought this thinking it would be a citrusy and medium hoppy APA since it says Pale Ale on the bottle and Ballast Point brewed it.
Come to find out, this is a Kolsch made with Euro hops. OK?
I suppose it tastes pretty good for a Kolsch, but I feel as if I have been duped.
