Clear yellow, small white lacing foam head. Weak aroma, like normal with a Kölsch, tasted perfect with my rack of ribs. (Houston 201501)

Keg at BJs, Gainesville, VA. Clear golden with a thin fizzy head. Aroma of grain and grassy hops. The taste matches. Thin bodied, high carbonation.

2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
No aroma. Clear yellow, headless. Hay flavor. Watery mouthfeel. Good enough flavor, but it just doesn’t come together very well. Worse than their light lager. Kolsch just isn’t very good when it’s mass produced.

Tap at the Westwood location.
I wanted another beer, and I didn’t have high hopes for anything, so a "kolsch" seemed like less work than the others. Probably correct -- very transparent, unobjectionable, easy-going beer, modestly sweet but none of the intrigue of a good kolsch, no fruit notes, nothing.

"very mild and uncomplicated beer. nothing bad here, but too boring for my taste. didn’t expect much and didn;t receive it. pale yellow in color with a hint of weet malt and hops in the aroma and flavor, slightly bitter finish."

On tap - light golden color, no head or lacing, has a light fruity Kolsch aroma. Refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty refreshing. Faint pale malt and grassy aroma. Light golden color. Filtered and clear. Crisp clean palate with high carbonation. Pretty lightweight. Flavor had a hop presence up front that was surprising. More light malt flavors and finished clean. Easy to drink with food.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wife ordered this draft at their restaurant in Frederick, MD. Served in a footed pilsner glass, bubbly clear pale yellow color with white head. Aroma of pale malt sweetness. Taste has more going with bready malt, some graininess and light grassy hop note. Light body, moderate carbonation, light, crisp with clean finish. Straight forward Kolsch.
