The COTU Kolsch is created using Pilsner malts with a touch of German Munich malt. The resulting straw-colored beer is both light in body, but balanced with the subtle hop spiciness of German Tettnang hops. COTU Kolsch is approximately 4.5% ABV and 19 IBUS

10/5/2013. Sampled at the VA Hop Fest. Golden yellow with a white head. Malty aromas with honey and light fruit. Good but not great.

Braudog (6379) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Weak super-pale yellow hue. Drinks with a super malty front, overly sweet, with a corny finish. Lacks a Koelner snap. (#4921, 1/19/2013)

Foxbush (1832) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Sample at the brewery. The beer poured a clear, straw yellow color with a medium sized white head. Aroma had some earthy hop character to it. This is clean tasting beer. It is a good session beer. The carbonation is lively with a touch of crispness to it in the flavor. I thought it was a good beer for most anytime. Good crowd for a Saturday. They still had a cask conditioned porter that will called Plow which I tasted as well. Purchased a growler of Pocohoptus.

Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Served on draft at the brewery. Pours a clear golden color with a thin creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of dry grainy malts, herbal and faintly grassy hops. The taste is sweet grainy malts with a grassy finish. Medium bodied, fairly crisp.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Draft at brewery. Glad to finally make it up to the COTU! Pours a clear straw yellow. Mild aroma of pale pils style malts, a bit crackery. Flavor matches - nice light malt flavors, and a balancing, crisp hoppiness on the finish. Hops are far more on the balancing bitter side than on the flavor side. A very well executed beer, liked this one. I can definitely seeing this getting some lawnmower time in the summer.

Travlr (21675) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Draft at the source. Very pale clear yellow color, small white edge head. Aroma of black oepper and malt. More peppery than your average Koelsch.

radagast83 (7388) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Draft at the brewery - second day open. Poured a clear, straw yellow color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was sweet grains, some earthy hop character to it. There was a touch of crispness to it in the flavor, but perhaps not as much as I like or expect from a Kolsch. I thought it was a pretty solid offering despite my negative comments to the contrary.
