Bottle poured into GI tulip

A - Golden, clear color that is slightly darker than champagne. Light carbonation trailing upwards. Small off white head sits on the top

S - Sweet slight honey, bready malt and straw come up from a fragrant nose.

T - Sweet and malty initally as you get slight honey and a sweeter, bready malt. As the beer goes on, there is hay and straw with a slightly bitter hopping that comes on near the finish

MF - Medium body with the malt giving it a nice thickness and creaminess. There is slight carbonation that gives it a slight pop near the finish

O - Nice, well balanced full flavored Kolsch from FFF. Definitely an easy drinking session beer that you could drink throughout the summer

(Served in an Imperial pint glass)

A- This beer has a hazy orange copper body with a thin wispy white head that last as a thin film.

S- The smell was very clean with a faint hint of pale malt that was a bit dry and almost earthy. As it warmed I got a stronger smell of yellow tomatoes, which was a little odd, but I like tomatoes.

T- The bright orange note on the first sip turns to a more dry honey note after it warms a bit. The pale malt follows that flavor which is then followed by a light bitter noble hop finish with some sulfur hints and a spicy hop hint.

M- This beer has a medium light mouthfeel with a big fizz texture in the finish.

D- The hops are not that interesting and they hang on the tongue after each sip overpowering the malt. This is a tough style to pull off and I'm afraid they didn't do it.

Bomber into pint glass

A- Classic light lager apperance. Light straw yellow, with quick reducing head. No lacing.
S - Dare I say it, but smells like Bud heavy. Light malty sweetness, no hops to speak of
T- Tastes like a classic lager. Malty, earthy sweetness that hangs on.
M- Thin an bubbly. Bit of a lager "burn" in the mouth

O- Not my favorite style of beer. I would rather drink this than Bud, but only because it has a cooler label.

A - clear, bright yellow with a soft, white head that has great retention

S - faint yeast, a hint of fruit, lemon grass

T - grass, cereal grains, sweet, lemon

M - light bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a really nice, lighter offering that is enjoyable and highly drinkable. If I had one complaint it would be the cereal grains. At points they were intense enough that it came close to eating corn flakes. But on the whole it was balanced and well put together. If you like Kolschs you'll like this.

Pours a heavy golden, with no lace.

Aroma is grainy, malty. Nothing outstanding.

Flavor is toasty grains. Very malt-forward. There's a hint of citrus towards the finish, as well as some fruit. Really a typical lager, nothing more and nothing less.

Overall, a solid kolsch, but unremarkable.

The Calumet Queen is a decent beer. The beer poured a pale yellow with no head and no lace. The scent had a slight lemon flare. The taste was crisp with a lemony finish. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this beer is decent and probably best drank in the summer.

22 ounce bomber

Pale golden in color, a partnership of clarity and haziness. Good carbonation. The head is very white and bright, and thick. Stopped mid-pour because it looked like the floor might get a drink had I continued. Two and a half fingers of tiny bubbles. Great retention. Foamy lace.

Malty, biscuity nose. Lemongrass and flowers. Green grape with a touch of pepper.

Tastes like a stronger version of a macro with an extra helping of citrus. A combination of pale and pilsner malts and savory Noble hops. Nothing to write home about. Maybe a style that shouldn't make a comeback.

Earthy, flowery feel. Very crisp. High carbonation to scrape the tongue dry after each sip. No alcohol presence. Light bodied. Sour, bitter finish. Acidic, citric finish.

Overall, it might be a good beer, but if it is, the style doesn't work for me. It was a hot day and I still didn't care for it. Tastes only slightly different than a run of the mill macro, only with more character. Not something I want again.
