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

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Pretty much an average beer. Very pale straw (clear) with a hearty white head. Yeasty nose. Body was thin, and the beer didn’t finish as tart/fruity as I would have liked.

DocLock (8602) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2004
Had this at the Manayunk event. Pours gold, with medium head. Some malt and hops in the aroma. Decent body and finish. An above average Kolsch.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 20, 2004
On tap at the brewpub. I was surprised by the GIANT bubbles upon being served. Doesn't this mean too much force carbonation? The head disappears rapidly. No aroma. Very delightful tart flavor. Crispy treat! This one won a GABF gold in 2002.

Aurelius (4683) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2004
Very pale, good flag logo. Rich, malt bready aroma. Clean drinking. medium hops with just a pinch of citrus. Medium-light body, medium finish with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Well done.

hopscotch (10147) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2003
CAPITOL HILL: Sparkling clear, very light yellow beer. Large, creamy, white head with excellent, thick lacework. Both the aroma and flavor are fairly nondescript. Extremely light, thin and watery. Well-balanced, but then so is seltzer water. Lively carbonation. Crisp, clean finish.

Part of a sampler at the Baltimore locaton. I'm not a big Kolsch fan. This one fits the Kolsch bill perfectly.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2003
Tasted in downtown DC. Light pleasant scent. Neither hoppy or malty hints, but a balance of both. Finish is crisp. Slightly spicy/ floral taste.

BBB63 (6475) - 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.

Braudog (6026) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2003
At the Baltimore location: Clear and wheaty to the nose. The flavor was a blend of yeast and mild citrus. A decent weizen offering.
