A hybrid-style beer, this ale is fermented at lager temperatures that produce a clean, bright beer, with mild hop characteristics and irresistible drinkability. 2-row pale malt and Vienna malt combine with Hallertau hops.

Draft at Buz and Ned’s in Richmond. Cereal malts, light citrus, grainy, crackery, bitter finish. Meh.

hayduke (4123) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Sampled at GABF In the sample glass was yellow. Tine bit of white foam. Nose if light citrus. Light to medium body. Flavor was the lemon and floral. The finish was bitter for a Kolsch. Bordering on a pilsner. Nevertheless while maybe not fully to style it tasted pretty good.

Pours a clear straw yellow color with a creamy white head. Aroma of lemon and grain. Cereal grain flavor with some citrus. Okay.

kramer (5510) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2015
Can. Pours a slightly darker gold than the typical Kolsch, with a minimal fizzy white head that completely vanished almost instantly. The aroma is not good at all, it’s more akin to garbage juice than it is to a beer. There seems to be a bit of sourness to the aroma as well. I don’t expect this to go well. Well, the flavor isn’t quite as awful as I was expecting, but it’s clearly not a style superstar. Wet and soggy malt, a hint of tartness on the lingering grainy finish. There’s little to no perceptible hops coming through at all. Light bodied, a tad clingy and flabby, fizzy carbonation. Not good at all, and definitely one of the worst attempts at Kolsch that I’ve had.

brigg (562) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2015
(Can) Very cloudy amber body with small to medium white head. Aroma of toast and fruit. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel. Flavor is smooth and drinkable; pine and some vegetable upfront, growing bitterness in there finish; dry.

altonbrownd (4600) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Can at CG Dulles. Nice golde body with medium head. Nose of fruits, fresh apples, spices. Taste hoppy, with malts and fruits and apples. Okay.

Maverick34 (2721) - New York, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Canned. Yellow pour and the like. A weird overripe fruity aroma was present rendering it kind of blah

magsinva (1025) - Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Can from TW&M McLean - pours clear Amber, white head. Aroma has some floral diesel notes to it. This one reads like a Pilsner, which is not what I expect in a kolsch. It’s a pretty decent Pilsner, but not what I was expecting.

Kinz (3567) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Poured yellow, nice head. Clean pils malt aroma. Flavor matches, with the very slightest hint of a floral hop. Really nicely done.

dhatton (234) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Drank from can courtesy of leafs93. Floral, herbal, grainy aromas. Spicy herbal hop taste with heavy dose of malts. Crisp finish, decent overall.
