COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our lightest choice, the German style Kolschbier is brewed with malted wheat creating a slightly fruity, mild beer with a dry finish, The gentle touch of noble hops lends balance and a delicate hop aroma.

Yellow pour with white head and lace. Paper and light caramel malt. Sweet malt start with paper and a dry finish. Decent medium bodied beer with good carbonation. Refreshing and clean.

Halfpint at the brewpub. Pours crystal clear, super-pale golden and a thin clean white head. Aroma is a whiff of faint but perceptible pilsner malt that’s not dirty, but not clean. Flavors are mediocre and really light. There’s a bit of cracker, but a bit of wet, oxidized pils malt. Minimal to no hops. Water profile seems dull. Carbonation is a touch high. At this point, I’m underwhelmed with the menu of beers here. Nothing is standing out. There’s nothing egregiously wrong with what they’re pouring, but things are unexciting and just every so slightly off, like the ingredient quality isn’t the greatest, or some part of the brewing process (fermentation maybe) is a little sloppy.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Pale malty aroma with some light floral notes. The flavor has pale crackery malts, a light bready sweetness and light floral hops. Decent.

Tap at pub. Pours a translucent golden with little to no head. Aroma of corn and light grassy notes. Flavor was a bit corn like, cereal grains and light citrus.

Cask at 3rd Manhattan Cask Fest: Pale golden with a fading white head. Lightly sweet pale malt aroma with a biscuit note. A bit muddled. Light body- fiarly dry flavor- a touch crackery, some mild bready sweeter notes. Low bitterness- lacking body. This is an underwhelming example, and a style not meant to be served on a cask.

Tap @ the brewpub. The beer was a clear gold color with a thin white head. The aroma had some sulfur and cereal to the nose. The flavor had a grainy wheaty cereal taste. Again some sulfur was present. Dry finish with a mild but long bitter finish.

on tap-pours a white ring for a head and yellow color. Aroma is sweet grain, mild perfumy. Taste is plenty of sweet grain, some fruit, faint perfume hops. An OK beer, drinkable, but closet to wort with some faint hops than standard Kolsch. Mild carbonation. Off note throughout, which is a detractor. Don’t know which, diacytl, yeast, lines need cleaning?

Draft sample at brewpub under the name Moonlight Kolshbier. Straw yellow with fizzy white head. Nose is feet and skunk. Taste is funky wheat with slight fruit and dry hop bitter at the end. Not a favorite style of mine, but not a bad example.
