Bottle from PHBW.Clear, golden yellow. Soapy white head. Sterile nose with mild cider aromas. Small amount of lemon. Taste is rather neutral, with apple juice flavors, light citrus and just enough grassy hop bight to make this work. Active carbonation. Not great, but good enough. It is what it is.

Keg, Southern Hospitality, 9th Avenue, Hell’s Kitchen, 20/02/14. Diaphanous pale blond with a rapidly shrinking white head. Aroma of not much; frozen apricot yoghurt, sherbet lemon. Decent crisp flowery taste with sherbet and spritz; restrained attempts at passion fruit. Wine gum and soda finish. Throwaway but pleasant with discreet citrus and botanical hop.

Good to see a new brewery pop-up in NYC (or atleast new to me, I’d never had any of their beers before). Welcome Alphabet City! As for the beer, this was a decent one. The flavor was different from my expectations from this style due to being kind of wheaty and peppery in addition to (or in place of) what you’d expect in a "Kolsch style beer" (as the description notes). Certainly worth trying.
