3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the Capitol Hill location.
Pours incredibly light clear yellow with a small white head. There is essentially no aroma here, just a dry, bready flavor with some spicy hop whispers and some dusty hay.
While is not an amazing beer, nor is it so bad. On a previous encounter, on a 100-degree summer day, I found this quite a nice thirst quencher.

Draught. Very pale, white head. Aroma is very weak malt. FLavor is similar. Not a Koelsch. This is obviously the beer on tap for Bud drinkers.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Capitol City Union Station. Pours gold with little white head. Aroma of wheat and biscuits but with a bit of pale lager smell. Taste is like a pilsner with some faint wheat character, tastes like 18% wheat just as it says. Bittersweet finish. Not bad, but had the least to offer of the Capitol City brews that I tried.

Pale yellow, thick white head, lots of lacing. Malty nose, spicy witha rich husk and biscuity character. The flavor is moderately bitter with a light sweet malty undertone. Finishes musky, not a bad kolsch.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
My first ever DC beer. A light yellow beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma has strong notes of lemon, which makes it nicely fresh. And the flavor is also a fresh lemony on a light malted back ground, and with a thin body. I find it very German in the interpretation. It is very easily drinkable after having wandered around DC in 30 degrees Centigrade and 85% humidity.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I am a frequent visitor to this pub and I enjoy the Kolsch. This beer starts very clean with a nice malt dryness and finishes with earthy hop notes. I have never tasted diacetyl in any of the beers at cap city bmore and especially not this one. I would recommend this beer to anyone who wants a refreshing and tasty brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, Downtown location, 2006 RBSG pubcrawl. Pours a pale yellow with a small fizzy white head. Moderate visible carbonation. Aroma is lightly bready malt and some light grassy hops. Flavor is quite bitter with some crackery malt and a crisp finish with some light fruitiness. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with fizzy prickly carbonation. Overall, this was not bad, fairly crisp and biting.
