3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy pale golden coloured body with a thin, slightly soapy two centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of pale malt, a touch of cardboard and the smallest hit of sour grapes, but a relatively mild aroma throughout. Light-bodied; Strong pale malt flavour with a light citrus flavour and a hint of coriander seed freshness to couple with the light grass and hay at the end. Aftertaste shows a very mild and refreshing kolsch with some light grassy and herbal overtones and a good airy sour finish at the end. Overall, a nice beer to sample on draught and great for the summer here in Washington! I sampled this pint on draught at Whole Foods in Falls Church (Tyson’s Corner), Virginia on 27-May-2014 for US$3.00 a pint.

Why is this a Zwickel? Seems like a Kolsch, and a very good one at that. Nice barley profile. Finishes a little bitter, and crisp. Pours golden with good head and lacing. Very easy drinking. Tap at Glen’s Garden Market.

Draft at the brewpub. One of the best kolsch’s I’ve had the US, could be served on the sidewalks of Koln, for sure. Pure to style. (#5382, 11/30/2013)

Serving: Draft at the brewery. Nicely crisp on the tongue with a hint of grain and lightly floral hops. If I didn’t know better, I would say it was a pilsner. Nicely done.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Meridian Pint for CBC. Poured a clear golden color with a small off-white head - sometimes served in proper Kölsch glassware throughout the night. Aroma was citrus, plenty of lightly toasted grains, sweet malts. Quite good, refreshing, enjoyable. On a hot day this would be just about perfect. Make this a staple of your lineup please?
