TheAlum (6926) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Sampled at GTMW 2009 (Madison, WI). Pours a hazy straw yellow that films and laces ok. Aromas are light fruity, fresh apple, with a touch of honey and grain. Initial is light and sessionable, grainy with honey and cereal, fruity apple and pear. Very nice sessionable kolsch that is very flavorful and throws off good fruity qualities. Easily my favorite Metropolitan brew thus far.

Strykzone (6632) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Just a little white in this golden beer. A noisy fizzy white head dies quickly. So little aroma. Some gentle honey and fruit. That is tasted and the flavor is also light. Gentle fruity and spicy hops. A little more honey is tasted than is in the nose. Some Noble hop notes. Pale malts. This is just an ok Kolsch.
