COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the Kolsch beers of Germany, Ravenwood is fermented at ale temperatures, then cold conditioned for a delicate dryness and tangy flavor that leaves you thirsty nevermore.

I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh. Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

This beer was the one that got me hooked on Duclaw Brewery in the very beginning I wish they would bring it back!

Excellent example of the Kolsch style. Crisp, light, with excellent body and carbonation. Easily my favorite DuClaw offering... And now I understand it is to be discontinued? DuClaw brewers need to re-think that decision. There is no better example of the style available--bottle or tap--in Maryland.

jde123 (764) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 19, 2005
On tap at Arundel Mills/Hanover brewpub. A good beer, very pale, light on flavor and body. But provides a nice cleansing sensation and overall refreshing ambience to a meal.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - NOV 17, 2004
On tap at Duclaw, Bowie, Md. location. Poured out a very light golden yellow color, almost clear. Thin white head faded all too quickly. Aromas are of fresh malts, yeasty bread, and sweet hay. Tastes are of a bland nature, with malts and yeast making up the bulk of the flavors. Subdued hops, both in flavors & aromas. Decent beer, but kind of thin bodied for my liking.

Parrothead (292) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2004
Clear, bright appearance, nice lacy head. Slightly fruity nose, tart flavor. Very refreshing. My first experience with a real Kolsch, and I was very pleased with how refreshing this beer was.

desurfer (1212) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Pours a piss gold wiith no head. Hops are very subtle, leaving the flavor profile mostly malty, but this is bland and generally uninteresting. The finish fades quickly.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 4, 2003
Clear, pale color; small head with decent lacing. Aroma was not too complex; noticed more malt than anything. Very good taste for a Kolsch style beer, dominated by a floral and fruity quality More flavor than most domestics of this style. Clean finish.

Pale straw, yellowy-gold color. Persistent champagney bubbles. Aroma is mild, difficult to detect. Has some faint, sour yeastiness to it. Definitely has the mild, sour-yeasty character I associate with a kolsch. Pleasant, refreshing flavor. Enjoyable and unobtrusive. Probably would be a good session beer.
