3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the Downtown location. The beer is a clear yellow-gold color with a thin and fizzy white head that burns away quickly. Spots of lacing on the glass under a ring at the top. Fruity aroma with malt underneath. Light and crisp body with flavors of fruit, sweet malt and mild grassy hops. The finish is fruity with a short mild bitterness left over. Just average overall.

Growler sent by strykzone. Thanks Dave! DC off my list! Pours a yellow color. Aroma is fresh and livley. Flavor is crisy, dry and yeasty. I don’t usually like this style all that much, but this one was good. I could drink it all day.

Had this one on draught at the brewpub near Union Station in Washington, D.C. Light yellow pour with a bubbly, slightly spicy nose, very grapey and dry flavor, like a chardonnay, sharp notes but not too bitter, great sessionable beer, especially for the style, I really enjoyed this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the downtown location. Light yellow with a fine white head that leaves some lace. Slightly sweet, grainy aroma, with a subtle hop spice. The flavor is a bit grainy, maybe due to the 10% wheat, and has a light sweetness before finishing with a touch of bitterness and german hop flavor. I’m hard on Kölsch because I know that it can have great, subtle malt flavor, and this one misses by a bit; just a bit thin and grainy, though it does have some hop bite.
