Draft pint at the brewpub. A golden beer, white topped. It’s a bit frothy. Straw and sweet grass dominate in this surprisingly authentic koelsch. Yummy (#3662, 9/13/2009)

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost no aroma. Clear with a very thin head. High carbonation leaves tounge tingling at the finish. Not very interesting overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Got this on draught in the Bull and Castle pub in Dublin. Pleasant golden colour with a decent and fairly lasting white head. Nice fruity aroma with a Taste was quite citrus and gently hoppy with a nice clean, crisp and slightly bitter finish but was perhaps a little watery. Had a nice, lasting aftertaste. Beer was better than I expected and I may well go back to it at another stage.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Bull and Castle, Dublin. Pour was golden color, sparkling bubbles, large initial head with true retention and lacing. Nose was bready, grassy, and fruity, fairly typical. The flavor followed suit, some added graininess, but also a metallic light touch, something that kept this from finishing crisp and sharp, I was even suspicious of it being served on Nitrogen (minus the mouthfeel) over a couple of sips.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a clear pale golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of mild hops and bready malt. Light body with flavors of herbal hops and sweet malt. There is a touch of citrus there too. The finish is lightly bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
At the Bull & Castle, Dublin
an extremely light ale, but I found the light color to be quite deceptive. It has quite a bit going on, but it took having it along with the food to bring out all the magic. By itself, it has very nice subtle malt tones with a slight hint of fruit. All subtleties were swept aside when combined with the excellent haddock & chips -- it came to life as a complex ale: bubbly to cleanse the palate, just bitter enough to quench, and slightly sweet for fun.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours with almost no head and has a clear and low carbonated golden body that is actually very pretty. You can tell it is not a crappy pale lager just by looking at it. Bready aroma. Grassy hops that made me actually think that this was a lager. Slightly sweet taste. End is bready again. Fransiscan Well ought to have more customers and more ratings because they seem to be truly committed to good beer and its proliferation.
