One of the closest to the German originals I’ve tried yet in the States. Crisp, clean and mildly sweet. Light carbonation and mouthfeel, thin airy head. Grainy but very delicious.

jcr (2576) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Draft at Ram Restaurant and Brewery (Indianapolis). Clear golden body. White, fluffy head, mostly diminishing. Not a lot to this beer, but then not a lot ot dislike. Light citrusy aroma with some hints of lemon and toasted grain and floral hops. The flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes the same. Light to medium body. Watery texture. Soft carbonation. Thirst quenching. Easy drinking.

On tap at the Indy Ram. Clear gold color with a fluffy white head and a light grainy nose. Some light lemoney flavors with raw grains and a noticable hop bitterness in the finish. Not a great beer to sit and analyze, but it was very tastey with the burger.

draft at the Fishers, IN brewpub - Is it the same Kolsch? I don’t know. The list in the brewpub just said "Kolsch". It pours clear yellow with minimal head and a very mild, malty aroma. The flavor is sweet, grainy malt with mild hops that’s well balanced and flavorful. It’s light bodied and works well in the warmer months.

Odd. All the rest of the beers that I had at Ram in Puyallup, WA were listed under the other big horn heading. This beer came off almost as nonexistent. No hops detectable, but easy drinking.

Draft at Brewpub: Holy crap! This is one crystal clear yellow beer... Small white head is short lived, decent lacing. Nose is malty, hints of yeast and hops. Tastes of malt, yeast, some bitters, and hints of spring flowers. The aftertaste reminded me a bit of that sensation before your allergies kick up. Pass.
