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

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2003
At DC postal location: Straw hue with a small white head and some lacing. Thin-bodied. Moderate hoppy aroma with hints of flowers, herbs, grapefruit, apple, and grain. Tart, hoppy, fruity flavors. Short crisp finish, lightly metallic. No hint of any wheat often found in Kolsch style beers. Somewhat refreshing, quaffable. An okay summer session beer.

At the Baltimore location: Clear and wheaty to the nose. The flavor was a blend of yeast and mild citrus. A decent weizen offering.

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 29, 2003
Pale, clear, straw color. Fairly strong, yeasty aroma (a typical kolsch aroma, as far as I'm concerned). Strong, flavorful, sour taste that's slightly bitter. A pretty forceful beer for what it is. Full bodied, fresh, crisp, herby (as in moist plants growing in spring, not cooking herbs).

Clear straw body. Aroma is light -- mild sweet and mild grassy. Taste is medium sweet, grassy, pretty crisp. Finishes clean and grassy bitter. Decent within style.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 a refreshing Kolsch for an afternoon pick-me-up after tromping around DC on a summer's day

If this is the best of East Coast beer, I’m staying in Oregon. This is bullshit.

Fairly sweet and drinkable. Nice hop presence. One of Capitol City’s better beers.

Soft and pleasant - tastes like a gentle wheat beer in fact. Everything about this brew whispers. Yup, bookman - i had this with crabcakes and I’m down with it beeing a fine accompaniment.

Too light of a body, a little on the watery side, didn’t have much of a head, very crisp & clean flavor though
