4.01/5  rDev +17.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Golden orange body. Held to light a bright yellow gold shines up the glass. A finger of white foamy head is misty as well and fogs nicely. Head could benefit from a better lifespan, but the brilliance of color is intriguing.

S-Field grains. Pilsner like. Berries. Perfume-y. Not too much more, but still sniffable. Plum I swear in there.

T-Instant malt bill crashes and washes like a wave. Toasted corn, sweet barley. Lemon. Pie crust. Grains dominate taste. Questionable plum. Will have to drink again.

M-Medium low body. Medium low carbonation sizzles. Nice sweet start leads to clouds of malt in the middle ending with a pleasing bitter chalky medicinal feel. Smooth, refreshing and the palate is left wet to boost.

O-Great offering from Sam Adams. Not too many kolsch offerings in the states so Escape Route is welcoming. I miss Goose Island-Summertime which was memorable. If anything Escape Route will encourage one to order foreign online or visit the birthplace of kolsch for the purest style taste.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I poured this into a glass, it has gold color body witj a small head to it. The smell has a light fruit, bread aroma to it. The taste has a light malt flavor and some grassy/hay notes to it also. I also get a little hop on the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and overall a good beer.

3.43/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into sensory glass. Pours a clear old gold colro with a medium sized white head that dissipates fairly quickly with slight lacing.

Smell is of light fruits and white bread, a bit of floral hops.

Tastes as it smells with a bit of sweet honey and citrus added. Mouthfeel is crisp and smooth, a slight amount of lingering bitterness in the back end.

Overall, an easy drinker best suited for the warmer weather.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance has a golden yellow color supporting a thin head leaving nil lace. Smell is grainy, malty with a slight zip of hops. Taste is again grainy with light malt and light hop. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. Not an overly impressive beer has a off bitter bite in the end.
