I was damn thirsty when i came into the brewpub. And this beer hit the spot before my glass of water came. Golden pour without head. Light crisp grainy finish. Tap at brewpub.

BierMeHoos (333) - Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2015
On tap at Franklinís 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.

4 fl. oz sample at the brewery. Pale yellow in the glass, small white head. Low yeasty on the nose. Starts grainy with malt. Real good malty. Like a Export/Helles. Maybe a little bit too low carbonated.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012
On tap at Frankinís. 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. Thereís 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.
