3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2007 Capitol Hill location. Light flavor, lemon and floral hops. Very light yellow color. Very refreshing. I also had this at the Shirlington location about a month later and my memory of it is more fonder. Not sure if it really was better, or if my palate was already tainted from other beers the first time I had it, but from my opinion it’s quite good.

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.
