I want to be a fan of this brewery, but sometimes it’s tough. Yellow with good head. Ok flavor, but but a bit watery.

[Tap] Pours a clear golden color with lots of white head. Highly carbonated. Grassy hops and light malts in the aroma. The taste is of cereal grains, light citrus, light fruits, light hops... Anyways it’s light in many flavor aspects, but that’s to be expected with the style. Good palate and very refreshing.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 Pours clear gold from a 12 ounce bottle with a small white head that diminishes quickly. Nice clean taste on the palate. Aroma of lemon tea. Not much carbonation and not very crisp. Finishes weak. An excellent refreshing summer beer though.

Very cloudy golden color with a small white head. The nose is all buttery big time, and the scent finishes with a little hops. First, the character comes outr bright and lively, then gives way to a sweet, mossy malt. Good bite, a little sour, and full finish.

Had on consecutive weekends at the G-man Houston before the BA meetings .. . Medium gold colour .. light wispy foam .. very clean stuff, light sweetness, maybe some pear .. a great brew to start any day! .. enjoyable simple stuff .. . If you’re watchin’ a parade, make sure you stand in one spot, don’t follow it, it never changes. And if the parade is boring, run in the opposite direction, you will fast-forward the parade.

Had this from a barrel tapping that one of the Franconia employees brought to a local dance club. Dusty grain-silo aroma, not too much of the tell-tale popcorn kolsch flavor, must have been fermented cooler. Poured bright yellow with a nice thick white head. Looked appetizing. Ok but the palate is where it shines through. Really nice going down, the texture of a higher gravity beer.

On tap. Yellow pour. Aroma is grass, citrus and grains. Flavor is pleasantly grassy, with some grains and malts as well. Solid little kolsch!
