On tap at Tap and Mallet Goose Island versus Founders event. Yup, its a Kolsch, one of the most unexciting styles on earth, and the Germans at their lowest. Gold, clear. Grassy nose. Mild German hops in the palate. Clean, boring.

On tap at Founders Brewery. Clear straw yellow with a thin white crown. Aroma is faint and pale with light coriander and malt. Taste is mildly sweet with pale malts and all too reminiscent of the pale fizzy yellow stuff. Didn’t care for this one.

kjc51478 (383) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 26, 2013
12oz Draught from Taproom. Appearance is clear, golden color with little, off-white head. Aroma is grainy malts and grass. Taste is similar with flavors of grains, is unit, and mild grassy hops. Palate is light-bodied, smooth texture, average carbonation, and a sweet finish. Not quite comparable to the original Cologne variety - missing some of the crispness - but a reasonable facsimile.

solidfunk (3583) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 19, 2013
A little better than the solid gold. Pours with medium lacing - also solid gold. Has some of the more odd ball pronounced malt consistent with style but nothing mind blowing. Crisp leave, some sweetness. Tap at brewpub.

On tap at Founders last weekend. Light grain with a fairly pronounced lemon character. Very dry. Quite drinkable, but nothing too exciting.

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2004
On tap at Founders. This was pretty disappointing overall. Clear straw body, thin off-white head. Served too cold to detect much aroma, but I did pick up on some grassy hops. Flavor is lightly sweet, biscuity, and grassy, hinting at corn sugars. Tight carbonation. Overall there just isn’t much going on here.
