3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft: Poured a deep amber color Kolsch(?) with a small foamy head with light retention and no lacing. Aroma of dry caramel malt with light butterscotch notes. Taste is also dominated by light butterscotch notes with some caramel malt also noticeable. Body is light with medium carbonation. A bit dark for a Kolsch but drinkable nonetheless.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Adega Wine Cellars & Cafe in Silver Spring, MD.
Hazy, golden amber with an off-white head and good lacing.
Aroma of caramel and yeast.
Taste of caramel, mild earthy herbal hops, light menthol and yeast.
Medium/full body and high/medium carbonization with a smooth mouthfeel.
OK, I am not a Kölsch fan, but this is good. It's simple and malty with a pleasant taste and a very nice mouthfeel.

This is a very "safe" choice in my opinion. Not a lot of crazy flavors or very heavy/strong. But a good beer overall.

Extremely crisp and enjoyable Kolsch. Nice malt/hop balance that leaves a refreshing feeling in the mouth and beckons for more. One of the better lagers I’ve had (which I typically don’t really care for that much). This one had character.

Serving: Draft at the brewery. Light floral and grain nose. The flavor has light touches of lemon, florals, and grain. Finishes very dry with a light touch of sweetness. Not bad.

On tap at the brewery. Poured a light golden yellow color with thin white head that quickly fell to a ring. Mild sweet yeasty aroma. Taste had a light wheat flavor with a bit of sweet malts coming through in the middle and lingering through the end. Light floral hop presence to balance out. Light, crisp and refreshing with mild carbonation.
