3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I am a frequent visitor to this pub and I enjoy the Kolsch. This beer starts very clean with a nice malt dryness and finishes with earthy hop notes. I have never tasted diacetyl in any of the beers at cap city bmore and especially not this one. I would recommend this beer to anyone who wants a refreshing and tasty brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, Downtown location, 2006 RBSG pubcrawl. Pours a pale yellow with a small fizzy white head. Moderate visible carbonation. Aroma is lightly bready malt and some light grassy hops. Flavor is quite bitter with some crackery malt and a crisp finish with some light fruitiness. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with fizzy prickly carbonation. Overall, this was not bad, fairly crisp and biting.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
First taste is buttered infection, giving way to a corn and tin flavor with light grassy notes. The color is extra pale yellow. The nose is almost strictly diacetyl. Overall a very poor kolsch, and a very poor beer also. Silky and buttery palate. While "true" kolsch is nothing to get excited about, this one is really nothing close to true kolsch. Sampled at Capitol City in Baltimore.

A very pale yellow with a bone white head. the aroma is lightly hoppy, almost minty. The flavor has a crisp dry maltiness and a good tingly hop finish. This is a pretty tasty little starter beer.

Very weak! Almost colorless with very little aroma and a dirty water aftertaste. Good thing it was part of a sampler so I only had to suffer through a few oz.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This one exceeded my expectations. Nice light golden color with excellent lacing. Very smooth with a light grassy and floral hoppy presence that was super well balanced with the malty base. Very drinkable.
