3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2011 Bottle. Poured a hazy yellow-amber in color with a small white fizzy head that was fully diminishing in a matter of seconds and virtually had no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was quite mild but I did sense a light grain malt, a mild dose of a piney hop and a light soapy yeast with a hint of citrus and a touch of apricot.
It tasted lightly hoppy and a little sour with a note of citrus in the beginning and finished with a nice mild hoppiness and had a hint of the apricot and citrus at the end. The flavor was left lingering on the taste buds for a nice long time after the swallow allowing for full enjoyment of this brew.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a nice lively carbonation.
Overall a nice light beer with a good fruity finish, definitely would be nice on a hot summer day after cutting the lawn.

Very pale yellow beer with a huge head like stiff beaten egg whites. It took a long time to get the whole bottle into my glass. The last pour dumped floaties into the beer. Clean floral lemon scent. Annoyingly lively carbonation. Apricot and pear fruit flavors with a lemon yeast finish.

Old tick, mild koelsch, good for an american example balance of grains and spicy hops.

12 oz bottle from tasting on January 13. The pour is a medium gold with a decent white head, and sporadic lace. The aroma is pretty plain. It’s got a little lemon zest, some grassy notes, and maybe a touch of hops. The flavor is also pretty plain. It’s quite light, but it’s got a nice citrusy tone, mostly lemon. The mouth feel is decent, definitely thin as would be expected, and there isn’t much that lingers around

Very distinctive taste and a great beer. Perfect for sitting around and sharing stories for the tenth or twentieth time amongst close friends....just making life come full circle!

Kolsch is not one of my favorites, however this this was nicely grainy/lemony so that it tasted pretty decent. Too bad I had it in January...this is definitely a summer beer.

@Party Source / Bellvue - Clear medium amber, 1/2" white foam head, swirls of lace. Taste is clean malt w/o adulteration, moving to mild floral hops in the finish that turn things toward malt with sour lemon. Unpretentious, simple, drinkable, but not a lot there.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From chicken scratch at bier baron in dc.
A: straw, little white soapy head. Excellent clarity. No lacing.
S: grain, grass, noble hops are slight if anything.
T: very light and crisp with grains, some lemon tones.
M: light body and low carb. Would like a bit more carb. Finish is insignificant.
O: this has a good base, but my favorite kolsch’s have a nice dry hop to them.
Serving type: on-tap
