@ 50 West / Cincinnati --- Clear light amber color with a rim head and tiny dots of lace. Taste is mild light malt that reveals a tiny touch of sulphur and flowery hops at the end of the palate. All moves smoothly through a lingering finish. A little more subtle than the best examples, but still true to the style. A good kolsch.

From draft sampler at the brewpub on June 16, 2013. Light lemonade-like hue, almost nonexistent aroma, light sweet taste with some lemon flavor.
This brew was named "50 West Speedbump Kolsch" at the time I had it.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear pale golden color with a thin white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, fruit and sweet malt. The finish is fruity with a mild hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Well done Kolsch. Cloudy, pale yellow. Very drinkable. Light as kolsch should be, with the malt tasting lightly bready and the hops with a light lemony flavor.

It’s a kolsh. Nothing special but good for cutting grass? Words words words stuff and such. The end.
