2/20/11. On tap. Clear golden pour with a small fluffy white head. Light grainy aroma with a hint of sweet grass. Light pilsner malt flavor with a nice greenish, spicy hop character. Not bad!

I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh. Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

Lubiere (11014) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2010 A pale blonde kolsch with a very thin white head. In aroma, light malt with strong chlorine (maybe from the washing). In mouth, a nice clean crisp kolsch with smooth hops, tingly and quaffable. On tap at brewpub, Feb. 26 2010.

On tap at Capitol City Downtown. Last beer of the night so I made notes as a deluge of alcohol brutally assaulted my brain, as has happened on many, many an occasion. It’s really a miracle that my IQ has not dropped into the single digits after all this. Anyway, this beer pours a clear bright golden color with a nice white head that sticks around and leaves some lacing. Aroma is pale malt, grain, and mild grassy hops. Flavor is more of the same - pale malt, graininess, grassy hops. Almost exactly what you’d expect for a fairly good representation of this style. Palate is somewhat light and crisp with an appropriate carbonation level.

On tap at Capitol City. Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head. Crisp lemon and light grain, with a hint of plastic. Piles of grain, little bit of lemon. More bitter grain on the finish.

Tap @ Capitol Hill.
Clear golden yellow, white head. Aroma of bready malts. Clean crisp hops. Flavor is bready. Clean, crisp, and refreshing. Nice lingering hop left behind.

Very pale, almost like water. Light body and nearly flavorless. Perhaps a good beer for a hot day.
