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.

aracauna (3252) - Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2006
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.

Ungstrup (30468) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2006
My first ever DC beer. A light yellow beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma has strong notes of lemon, which makes it nicely fresh. And the flavor is also a fresh lemony on a light malted back ground, and with a thin body. I find it very German in the interpretation. It is very easily drinkable after having wandered around DC in 30 degrees Centigrade and 85% humidity.

kramer (5360) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2006
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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Draft @ Capitol City downtown Pale yellow, thick white head, lots of lacing. Malty nose, spicy witha rich husk and biscuity character. The flavor is moderately bitter with a light sweet malty undertone. Finishes musky, not a bad kolsch.

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.

Light golden body with a white head. Grainy aroma, very light hops. Tast of wheat and light fruits. Semi-sweet ending.

3fourths (8602) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2006
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.
