COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This lager like ale is modeled after the official beer of Köln, Germany. Kolsch is delicate and refreshing with a slight fruitiness and supportive, yet unobtrusive hop bitterness

Bland and watery. Lots of straw, some very mild citrus. Tried this at the DC beerfest with Jess, Mark, and Matt in 2014.

Draft. Golden with small white head. Aroma of corn, sweetness, and DMS. Light body with some sweetness, grain, and a light bitter finish. Sweeter than your typical Kolsch.

Like a normal kolsch but sweeter. Easy drinking, refreshing, and an overall good beer.

På fat. Ljusgul med vitt skum. Väldigt svaga dofter av gräs och lime. Tråkig och vattning smak med gräs, vitt bröd och viss maltsötma. Kolsyrig munkänsla.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2013
On tap at Capitol City, Downtown location in July 2006. Pale straw colour. Not too much to it but clean and crisp. Refreshing on the palate. Just a slight, gentle underlying hop bite. I’m not often a big fan of these brewpub Kolsch efforts but this one hit the mark well enough.

Huhzubendah (2553) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 7, 2012
On draft at Capitol City Brewing Co. in Virginia. The beer is transparent and pale yellow in color with a quarter inch of white head. The aroma indecent for the style, offering bread, grain. Smells like a German lager, which is a good thing. The flavor is simple and straightforward, with some biscuit and toast notes. Thin bodied, the beer finishes with a light hop bitterness. Overall, pretty good. I would have this again. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 01-29-2012
