Sammy (9537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2008
Enjoyed at the Washington, D.C. brewpub with the brewer on his last day. A good bitterness, a good lace on light yellow. A little creamy. Average mouthfeel, and drinkable on a hot Washington summer day.

Drjohnrock (549) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Draft sampler at Columbus brewpub. Sweet malty aroma, flavor and body are too thin--"thin" being a word that applies all too often to the beers I had at this place. Flavor seems to be in the backround, as if a good beer is trying to break out but doesn’t quite make it.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2012
2012-07-24, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 5-3-5-2-10=25
Deep blond color, not even hazy. Very light malt aroma. Light malt flavor, with a hint of fruits and grass; low bitterness.
Too simple.

2007-10-06, draught at the brewpub, Washington DC, as Sommerfest, 4-2-4-2-8=20
Light blond color. Very light Lager, with a sweetish flavor and low bitterness. Too simple.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2007
Had this one on draught as part of a sampler flight at the brewpub in Bollingbrook, Illinois. Clear, light yellow pour with a thin white head, floral and fruity, highly drinkable.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2007
(Tap) Pours a golden color with a fizzy white head. Aroma of wet grain and light citrus/grass. Taste is bready, with a smooth malty mouthfeel. Dry ending, with a decent mouthfeel (especially for the style). Overall it’s OK, but nothing too exciting.

Cybercat (4031) - Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2007
This kolsch pours a typical clear yellowish gold. Aroma is hoppy and not strong. Flavor is fairly hoppy, pleasing although not complex - a typical summertime brew, light and refreshing, with just a touch of fruity sweetness. Finish has more sweet in it than the initial taste.

3fourths (8600) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Draft at the new Rockville, MD location, in a tall fluted pils glass. Nose was actually pretty disgusting, smelling like egg salad, DMS, a hint of urine (literally) and fluffed, slightly fruity egg whites. Flavor thankfully isn’t as bad, but isn’t stellar either. Lightly crisp, mostly fizzy, simple sweet grain flavor with a sour (slight) egg presence. This one needs work, and a lot of it.

rayg1 (584) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Had this on tap with Immy (thanks for showing me around town dude!!). Served to me a clear yelllow with a small white head. Aroma has a nice light sweetness to it and a slight fruity puch. Nice wheat smell in there as well. Taste is alot of the same but I did notice that it became better as the beer went on and warmed up not a bad beer.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 10, 2007
On tap at the Virginia Beach location. Clear light gold with a white head. Nose is light malt sweetness with a mild grain and some light honey notes. Flavor is much the same, very light flavored and bodied. A mild grass is noted in the finish. OK.

Kristatos (6) - USA - JUL 9, 2007 does not count
Had on tap in San Diego GB, fits the Kolsch style guidelines very well, slight fruit character, crisp finish was not harsh, pleasant spice from hops. Great clarity and persistent creamy head. Took a growler home.
