4 oz draft pour at Mad Fox. Hazy pale yellow with off-white head. Nice head retention. Aromas of citrus, yeast, light bready and wheaty notes. Tastes of wheat, citrus, bready notes, yeast, lemon lime. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation. Like this a tiny bit more than the filtered version.

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,

Draft at brewery. Pours a pale hazy gold, like straw. Aroma has a subtle pine. Taste is pure lager. A drinkable beer but nothing at all special.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Meridian Pint. Pours a full haze, straw. Sharp urea, lemon, and lacto nose like a Berliner weisse. Pretty funky. Some people at our table thought it was sweaty socks and body odor. I don’t mind it- pretty typical lacto nose. Taste is grassy and yeasty, some squashy noble hops, refreshing lemon, dough, cracker. Sharp, quenching, delicious. I’m really digging this though at first it is too funky for style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mad Fox tap ($5.75): Pours a very slightly hazy golden color with a white head. Although I have had the normal kolsch, I find it difficult to compare the two because of the time that has elapsed between tastings. In any case, this is pretty excellent. Aroma has nice bread and hops aroma. Taste is rather bitter, yet extremely drinkable. This is not watery in the least bit like many other kolschs, nor is it kind of rotten like others (Reissdorf, I am looking at you). All in all, this is an excellent, balanced Kolsch.
