look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pils glass.

3.25 A: Clear golden wheat color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is about average and a small amount of lacing is left.

3.25 S: Grassy hoppiness. Sweet neutral maltiness. Hay and lager yeast. A bit doughier than I'd like. Could be a bit cleaner, but it's still pretty good.

3.25 T: Like the nose. Grassy hops, hay, sweet neutral malts, and some doughiness. Again could be cleaner, but not bad.

3.5 M: Lighter body. Good moderate carbonation. Crisp and refreshing as it ought to be.

3.5 D: Decent kolsch. It's a lot cheaper than the best ones out there, so I guess it has a niche.

(Served in an American pint glass)
A- This beer pours a crystal clear lemon yellow body with a big bubble carbonation and a fizzy white head that is soon gone leaving a few bubbles to the side of the glass.

S- The dry field corn aroma has a green bitterness in the finish that grows but otherwise the aroma is pretty clean.

T- The dry sulfur and corn taste has some Noble hop hint in the finish with a dandelion and pith bitterness that lingers after each sip.

M- The light mouthfeel has a full fizzy finish that only enhances the bitterness.

O- This beer is dry and thin with no Kolsch characters at all and becomes a bit harsh making hard to finish one glass.

Was stretching it to get my mix sixer full of new beers, not much expected of this one, given Point's crappy offerings up to this point...

Pours golden with a pinky of pearl colored head. Hear retention & lacing are lacking

S: Cereal & white grape juice perfumy hops as this warms

T: Follows the nose, a touch of lemon & grainyness mixes with pear up front. Pears & peppery hops as this warms. Finishes fruitty with slight hop spicyness & a touch of dryness

MF: Crisp, fairly light bodied, thickens up a tad as it warms

Easy drinker, maybe the best beer I've ever had from these guys. Not a great Kolsch, fairly true to style. Wouldn't turn this down if offered one

Pours a brilliant medium gold with a frothy two inch ivory head that slowly dissipates, leaving sheets of thin lacing.

Aroma is slightly skunky and decidedly grainy. There's a bit of sweet corn accompanying light floral hop and bubblegum notes.

Grainy malt forms the backbone of the flavor profile. It's fairly sweet until the somewhat dry finish. A metallic tang surfaces as it warms, along with perfumey hops.

Body is moderate, slightly slick, with moderate carbonation and a tannic bite.

Fairly nondescript, but the skunky aroma is offputting, as is the metallic flavor.

Another random single, this on dated "0132" on the neck... Jan '12 would be concurrent with the first review date. Kölsch is an odd choice for a winter seasonal though. Anyway...

Pours a shade of gold shot through with the lightest of haze. A couple fingers width of bone white foam rises and subsides to a clingy skim after a couple minutes, leaving behind some frothy lacework in the glass.

Yeasty aroma, slightly floral, not getting much else. Served fairly cold as the style dictates.

Fuller feel, smooth and lightly bready with some floral and lemon pith traces. Soft supple body and its pretty clean in the aftertaste. Not a bad effort here. Will look for it fresh next year... (next week?)
