Braudog (5574) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2005
Draft sample at the brewery 7/8/05: Straw-colored with a decent head. Starchy aroma but an interesting bitter tinge beyond the standard Kolschiness ... good stuff.

PorterPounder (5339) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Sampled on tap at the brewery. Cloudy, light golden appearance, light fluffy white head. Fresh clean, mown grass aroma, slight buttery taste with a good malty backbone that adds some sweet doughy notes. Smooth, silky mouthfeel. All in all, a decent Kölsch, quite refreshing.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 1, 2004
(Draft: Midnight Sun Brewing Co. in Anchorage, AK) Quite malty for a kölsch, in fact malty enough and balanced that it could qualify as a European pilsener; The maltiness balances the moderate bitterness fairly well; Clean and crisp on the palate; The nose has a nice bit of maltiness to balance out the moderate hops and citrus aromas; Light golden color; Off-white head has good size and decent retention
