KajII (770) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a clear pale gold in color with a huge (3-4 finger) white fluffy head that was mostly diminishing and had some fair sticky lacing. The aroma was of light grain and straw malts, floral and grassy hops and a funky soapy yeast, and had a hint of spice and a mild citrus (lemon) presence. The taste had a nice light crisp grainy malt flavor with a very mild, almost undetectable citrus note early on, with the taste becoming mildly bitter and a tad hoppy and having just a bit of spiciness at the end. The flavor lasted a short time proceeding the swallow with a slight mild bitterness left behind. Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery texture and a tickly carbonation. Overall a very nice tasting Kölsch, that had a nice bold flavor with a slightly mild bitterness. This was an extremely enjoyable and satisfying brew for this style...

I am a fan of Kolsch and Kolsch style ales. Goose Island makes a pretty good one. However Freya’s Gold does not live up to my expectations. FG pours a lite golden color with a think white head. It is nice and bubbly on the tongue. It is lite enough that if you were looking to quench a thirst you could chug this. However it seems to have a slightly off putting musty almost skunky aftertaste. Maybe I just got a bad bottle, but with all the great beers out there I’m not likely to come back and give it another chance.

8/28/2012. From bottle. Golden yellow with a white head. Malt and caramel aromas with light fruit, spice and earthy notes. Medium carbonation, caramel flavors and light hops on the finish.

Fatehunter (1089) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Pours a finger and half of head on a clear golden colored body. Looks amazing. The aroma is light and floral. The taste has a mild lemon bitterness at first, grapefruit bittering, mild honey to balance it out, finishes on a bitter note. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Quite enjoyable and tasty with a low ABV.

Lagerboy (1071) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
Undated bomber. Clear pale straw yellow, small lasting foamy white head. Aroma is muted malty, grassy citrus. Lightly bitter, lemon citrus, lightly honey sweet grainy malty taste, mild herbal grassy hop hints. Nice flavors, this would be so much better if the carbonation wasn’t so soft. Finishes clean, yet limp, but it’s still: LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

One way to judge a brewery is by how well they can brew a lighter style beer where neither massive hops, roast, or sweetness can mask the flaws. Freya’s Gold is a solid beer that is a terrific first impression for this brewery. The hazy, straw-colored body is capped by a white head that pours very tall and fluffy, then settles slowly in very rocky fashion to half an inch, holding there. Streams of quickly moving carbonation rise through the beer and not only look pretty, but supplement the head’s staying power. The nose is simple and clean, but very enticing, with bright aromas of lemon, cut grass, herbs, and dust. On the palate, the hops are noticeably spicy and herbal, with lemongrass and fresh herbs, while the malt is very clean with a light cereal flavor. The light-bodied beer is highly carbonated, so hoppy burps are impossible to suppress, but the mouthfeel is perfectly dry, dusty, clean, and crisp, which all work together, making this a very refreshing beer to drink. At the conclusion of the session, spots and patches of lace still remain on the glass. Overall, this is a really enjoyable beer. I look forward to hopefully trying more from this new-to-me brewery.

solidfunk (3004) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Very underperforming. Not sure if this is the pub’s bad but they tried to sell this as a saison. But actually, a kolsch makes more sense than a bad saison - if the brew doesn’t work, call it a Kolsch. Pours blond with ok lacing and head. Faint hay but I’m stretching with that. Definitely a skippable beer. On tap at Garrick’s head.

Not bad... nice pretty foam. Slight lemon taste to it. Carbonation isn’t too high. Gets better as you drink more... tangy flavor on the tongue (aftertaste).

I don’t know who Freya is for you guys because your bottle didn’t tell me. For me, Freya’s is a good old dog who lived to the ripe of age of 17. I happily drink this bottle dedicated to her. Thanks Odin.

Bottle share. Slightly hazy yellow. Aroma of dry tart citrus. Taste of tart spice. More citrus. Crisp finish. Refreshing.
