The pride of Cologne. A delicate golden ale brewed with just a touch of wheat. Long cold storage makes this beer much cleaner and crisper than most ales. It’s all topped off with a gentle, German noble hop finish. OG: 1.045 Color: 3 IBU: 28

alobar (3532) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Pours a golden color with a white soapy head that lingers. Aroma of bread, toasted malt, and fruit. Fruit sweetness with bread, and toasted malts. Easy drinking summer beer. Not a big Kolsch fan, but this one is quite nice.

20120701 tap at IH Lancaster. Golden color beneath small lasting white head. Aroma is somewhat bready, or pizza doughish, with a slightly musty hop note. Flavor is full on cereal, maybe Kix, plus maize, and only a touch of earthy hops. Not too exciting, and perhaps more premium lager like than Kolsch but what the hell it was good enough. Gotta love a place where even the stuff you like least is still acceptably good.

Draft at Maple Shade. Poured a mundane looking thin super light colored straw body under a small fizzy bright white head, is this a macro? Aroma is all cereal and grains with a slight touch of corn and vegetables. The body is watery with strong carbonation. Luckily the flavor really steps it up with lots of fresh slightly sweet cereal grains and super crisp grassy hops. Not much to look at smell but the flavor really came through.
