2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Franklin’s Restaurant, Brewery & General Store in Hyattsville, MD, part of a flight of 10. Appearance pours a clear yellow-golden color. Aroma smells of bread, wheat, and grain. Taste of grain and bread again, but not too notable. Palate is light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, pretty average, and Franklins has a lot of other beers that are more tasty.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Frankin’s.
Pours a light yellow with a good white head and a bit of lacing. The nose brings forward quite a bit of grain and malt. A bit too malty for the style. Faint hops. Flavor is along the same lines as the nose. There’s simply too much malt character for a delicate style like kolsch. Light-medium body with a slight chewiness. Decent enough, but needs to be thinned out with less overt malt character.
