Tap with dinner the other day. Creamy with a moderate body. A lovely golden. Hops ring the mouth just enough to let you know they are there but come out a bit more in finish. White head is fizzy.

[Draft @ Pacific Standard] Golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of straw, toast, sweeter toffee, some honey, citrus, and grass. Taste of crisp, toast, citrus, light hop, and a dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler filled at Big Z and consumed the next day. Pours a slightly hazed gold with a few soapy bubbles for a head that quickly disappear. My guess is there was an issue filling this growler given the extremely weak head and the amount of unfilled space in the top of the growler. Mild aroma of bready malt. The flavor is malt with some biscuit towards the finish. Slightly dry as well. Fairly well rounded. Easily drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at BGH, Brooklyn ($5): Pours a golden body with a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma has some grainy notes, straw, along with German-like hops. Sweet malts and very subtle hops are what you get once the beer goes into your mouth. Very nice crisp and smooth mouthfeel. Not overly exciting, but a nice refreshing beer that I would be glad to have on a back porch.

Aroma light yet floral aromatic nose , sweet , grainy and bit too fruity for style.6-
Appearance clear golden as it should be. White thick top. Good looking.
Flavor and Palate : mid light bodied , to sweet with hints of caramel. Lacking lager crispness. Noticeable hops on top. Not Kolsch in my books.
