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

Tap @ Capitol Hill Location. Pours a clear golden color with a slight white head. Very effervescent. Aroma is slight citrus with bready and biscuit notes detectable. Taste is slight citrus with floral and grassy hop notes detectable as the beer is going down. Finish is crisp and clean, though again this beer is nothing special.

Stine (1657) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Clear, watered-down piss color. Furiously bubbly. Aroma of citrus rind, with flatbread dust and biscuit crumbs. Salty with a twang of vinegar. Taste is dry, and tepid. Grassy, slightly tart and lemony with a lot of that crackery sand hanging around. Palate is spritzy and light with a cleansing finish that carries a bit of saltwater bite. Fantastically refreshing and reasonably interesting. A lively, well-made example.

pivo (2631) - GERMANY - MAR 17, 2007
Creamy head, yellow color. Grainy taste with a tight dull bitter. Some diacetyl and buttery note. Lively carbonation. Off tastes and not a Kölsch at all--just a really pale American ale.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Sampled on tap on 7/15/06 at the downtown location: Pours a bery pale lightly effervescent golden with nicely-lacing white head. Aroma has mild grainy and noble hoppiness. Real dull, nearly flavorless, bland, grainy and bitter. Not very true to style and needs a more authentic yeast strain, and more body.
