Good, clean, crisp. Perfect on a warm autumn evening. Poured yellow-gold, fluffy white head; sticky lacing. Clean malty smell; slight spice in the nose, with a hint of grainy malt; Tastes consisted of a little lemon, malt, and smooth at first, with a sweetish/dry aftertaste. Decent beer, easy drinking. Quaffed a couple 16 oz. bottles . Good beer for warm weather.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 6C). Bottle 50 cl - Batch 11816:27. AROMA: slightly sweet cereal aromas. no hop aromas. slight esters reminiscent of pears. APPEARANCE: slightly light gold color and very translucent. thin white head with average retention. TASTE: low malty sweet flavour. very low bitterness. no hop flavours. PALATE: low and watery body. low carbonation. OVERALL: a watered down Kolsch without the characteristic subtle fruit flavours.

Date: 9/28/14
Location: Halftime Mamaroneck
Draught/Bottle: Bottle
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Straw to a light yellow/gold in color. The beer allows a lot of light in and it is not difficult to see through. No haze. Modestly carbonated white head. No cling.
Aroma: Pils malts start us of with earthy to grassy aromas. Little yeast smell that is very clean. Just a touch of a buttery to apple aroma.
Taste: The Pils malts are again giving off that earthy to grassy aroma. With a touch of apples/butter. The yeast is smooth. A hint of hops on the apples to pears side. Moderate hop bitterness in the finish. What strikes me is how soft all the flavors are. Nothing in the beer is very strong.
Mouthfeel: Light to light Medium body. Medium carbonation. A little hop tartness from the finish is really the only sensation that stays with me throughout the finish otherwise all the soft feelings dissipate quickly.

A: Straw and crisply filtered with no carbonation. The 3 fingers of fizzy white head, fade relatively fast.


S: Malt forward, a little crisp white wine, vinous quality, fermenting green hay, an umami quality like shitake mushrooms.


T: Malty, clean linen, a touch of banana, then a very dry chemical of paper mill quality, an acrid slight bitter taste with a hint of sour lemon juice.


M: Not the best Kolsch I’ve had, but happy to find the style in Thailand just the same. Lacking in the white wine quality, perhaps this one is slightly old and losing its touch. I’ve had some of the best Kolsches around, and some good American copies, but this isn’t the most awesome, but it’s the style, so I’m happy. Drank in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Sept 27th, 2014.
