Brown bomber into standard pint. Served cold.

A: super pale, almost colorless. Absolutly clear. A little pure white head that fell to an adequate cap and a good ring.

S: fruity, a hint of pineapple. Caramel sweetness on the nose, like a very light toffee. No hops on the nose. Just sweet sweet malt.

T: sweet, not as sweet as the nose but caramely malt. The strong hops comes in on the taste but not overpowering. Finishes a little bitter and has a lot of good hoppy flavor.

M: heavy side of light, pretty typical for a german brew. Little bit of fizz helps it stay palateable.

O: my first kolsch but I really like this and usually the nore pale the less I like. This beer has lots of esters and caramel nose. quite good.

Picked this one up at Bier Thirty a couple of nights ago... pours into my new "Funk Fest" tulip... fantastic 1" bright white head... the brew is perfectly clear straw golden.

Nose is a nice light pale malt with some subtle sulfur (not a problem given the style).. a bit of noble hoppiness.

Flavor is bright clean bready maltiness.. dry throughout with a nice malty essence left behind.. decent hops may be a touch high... seems a bit minerally (again, not a problem).

Appropriate body and carbonation... surprisingly good.. I believe I would pick this one out as a Kolsch in a blind tasting pretty much every time.

Not nearly as malty as many of the American interpretations... very refreshing... Liked it a bunch.

All 4's.

22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer in N.Salem $3.79 Bright golden/yellow beer with a good sized frothy white head..it hangs around a bit too sweetish caramel and hay aromas and a pinch of hop no more Taste mostly hay and toasty maltiness..there is a tinge maybe of grassy hop in the end, fairly good. OK on the palate good for style Nice drinkable summer beer.

A - Pours a pale light yellow-orange with a soapy white half inch head with ok retention.

S - Light, pale, and pilsner-like

T - Wheat, corn, and some vomit.

D - Good carbonation with a light body. Barf finish.

O - Sorry, this is just not good. Sour, vomit-like flavors.
