Pours a pale gold with a light white head. Aroma is bready, and so is the flavor. A little bit sweet. Not a whole lot of flavor, just okay.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Devil’s Den in South Philly. I have no idea how they got this beer but I was very excited and made a trip there last night just to try it.
Pours a slightly hazy dark golden amber orange with light golden yellow hues when held to a light source and a one finger frothy white head that quickly fades into a lasting ring. No lacing.
Very sweet citrus aroma that smells mostly of lemon juice. There is a healthy dose of citrus lemon peel as well as some biscuit malt, subtle hops and lemon zest.
Fuller end of medium body some some nice yeasty bready notes. Very sweet citrus peel presence that again is mostly lemon juice and lemon zest. Graham cracker biscuity malt and nice crisp hops lying underneath. The sweetness form the lemon flavor is way too overpowering, like someone squeezed an ounce or tow of lemon juice in my glass. This really hurts the drinkability and really ruins a lot of the positives of this beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light gold in color with a huge inch and a half rocky head.
Smell is all wheat and malt. Very strong wheat and malt. Taste is crisp, clean and light. Plenty of lemon zest and very light in the taste. This is a good, hot, humid summer day beer. Very true to the style. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2007 Draft at the brewery, is a deep gold with a white head that thinned to a ring, some effervescent bubbles rise to the top, left lots of lacing on the glass,
aroma of malt and fruit fragrances, a dry malt aroma with faint hops, malt and bread flavor that reminds me of a pilsner but more so in flavor,
some fruit flavor and more hop crisp bitterness than I have encountered in other Kolschs, some citrus in the finish combined with the hop bite to give a good dry finish,
thick mouth feel, medium or less carbonation, not as light of a drink as I was expecting, tasty.
