COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light-bodied Kolsch displays a smooth malt note and a hint of fruit flavor in the finish. The Kolsch style has little hop flavor or aroma, letting the sweet malt taste prevail.

Drjohnrock (427) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Draft sample at the brewpub on July 14, 2012. Very clear yellow color, subdued aroma, moderate bittersweet flavor. Refreshing beer that’s not bad for style.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2011
On draught at Downtown Grille, Knoxville on 8 July 2006. I guess this is the light beer that every brewpub feels obliged to make. Pale straw appearance. Rather thin and short of flavour. Inoffensive, light as a feather and easy-drinking but short of interest. Just as expected really.

furious (9) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2009 does not count
Had this with the Downtown Grill & Brewery sampler. It wasn’t too bad but it certainly wasn’t as good as most of the other beers.

Butters (3685) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Stopped in after the Xmas Eve^3 at tronraner’s. Clear yellow pour with small white head and some lacing. Nose is a faint corn. Flavor has a very slight floral hop that balances out the malt fairly well. Very grainy and overly attenuated body with moderate carbonation.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear yellow color with a thin white head. The aroma was grainy, with grassy notes. The flavor was grainy, with not much of a hop finish.
