2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of metal, light malt, alcohol and a hint of herbs and lemons. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic flavour up front with a very faint malt flavour and not much else - perhaps some light citrus. Aftertaste is bland, mild, uninspired and very simple - just some light malt and crisp metal, that’s it. Overall, a pretty poor offering that definitely isn’t recommended, but the only saving grace was that I could try this at Nats Park and avoid being disappointed when there is much better beer available. I sampled this twenty ounce pint on draught at Nats Park for the Yankees versus the Nationals on 20-May-2015 for US$10,00.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap, Nationals Stadium. Hazy light lemon gold. Bready, slight malt sweetness and decent aroma. Flavor follows suit pretty closely but is missing some hoppy punch to carry some of the bread notes. Lighter soft body.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: bright yellow, slightly cloudy, short soapy white head. Aroma: light lemongrass, hint of cereal grains. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: short, clean, hint of dry floral bitterness. Notes: Was really looking forward to this, but it was underwhelming. Plan to give it another shot next time I’m there. Draught at the brewery.

Draft at Whole Foods in Alexandria, VA.
The beer is a cloudy, pale yellow with a white cap. Ample lacing. Aromas of bread, yeast. Pilsner malt with a mild hop component. Easy drinking. Light in body. I’d have this again.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Much like there Koelsch with just a little have too give a pale yellow lemon look. Clean and fresh, but not as good as their clear version for my taste. Lacks some of the light fruit notes of a true Koelsch,
