Sampled on April 13, 2010. It pours a golden yellow with quickly rising carbonation and an inch to inch and a half fiuzzy white head that pops and bubbles down to a thin ring. Malts are clearly the lead aroma with a nice clean but light hoppy sensation in there too. The mouthfeel is around medium. The malts and Euro-hops blend together well to provide a decent, fresh balance that remains clean to the end. This was rather easy to drink. (439 characters)

Pours a nice golden color with a thin-head into my glass. Certainly looks "Kolsch-style" to me.

Aroma is full of sweet, grainy malt with a smell reminiscent of honey (?) and not much else underneath.

Taste is pretty much the same. It's a bit uninspiring though. Sweet, malty but there's no slight hop bite. Somewhat bland in the middle as well.

Mouthfeel is full of lingering sweetness and corn and honey come to mind for some reason.

Why call something Kolsch-style when it doesn't even come close to the style? I'd rather have a real kolsch over this. (557 characters)

I poured into a pint glass to a half inch of white head that disappeared rather quickly. It is clear and golden. The smell is sweet and bready. The taste is just like the smell. It tastes bready upfront. Then the sweetness sneaks in at the end. It's better than I expected it to be.

Cheers! (292 characters)

In introducing this beer I am unable to find much information on it. Even the Dundee Web site does not show it as one of their brands.
I have labled this a blonde ale but that is a guess. Would have thought that since Kolsch is a style that that would have been listed, and since it isn't lets call it a blonde ale.
It pours with a very pale amber hue to an otherwise pale straw color. Has a decent head that provides average to better than retention.
Smell includes a lot of biscuity and lemon notes and both come through in the taste. Also detect a little piney hops.
Has a kind of a buttery smoothness. Sweet no bitterness.
Kind of a summer type ale. (653 characters)
