THE thirst quencher! Brewed in the Kölsch style, it’s a refreshing, pale, delicate beer with a frothy white head and a lively aroma imparted by Saaz, Spaltz, and Perle hops.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 8, 2011
On tap at brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy bright yellow color with a thin white head that clings to the glass. Aroma of citrus hops. Flavors of lemon rind and mild biscuity malts. Finnish is lightly bitter with a slight floral tone. Thin and crisp with biting carbonation.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Pours a mostly clear golden color with no real head. Aroma is of urine. Taste thankfully is much better than the aroma, notes of some crisp doughy malts, light grassy floral hops and a slightly dry finish.

strongpieman (1496) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Draft at restaurant. Very light, not much aroma or taste, even for this style. Clear, little head. Refreshing, but could have a little more to it.

nickd717 (3483) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 8, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellowish golden straw color with a decently-formed white head and good lacing. The aroma is white bread, grain, and lightly citric hops. Rather standard. There is a popcorn note on the flavor, which I don’t get in many beers (not buttery though). Besides that I get pale malt, cereal grain, and a faint bittering hop character. Very light on the palate, and I must admit it’s decently crisp and refreshing. Pretty bland an one-note overall, but above average for the style nonetheless.

jredmond (5332) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Draft at the Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills, NC. Pours aa clear yellow with thin white lacing. Aroma is very light, possible german malts. Mouthfeel is incredibly thin with notes of light yeast, very smooth finish with not much flavor overall.

Capa (2029) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAR 11, 2010
Clear golden with a rocky white head. Light aroma with a hint of zesty citrus. Crisp but light in the flavor. Cereal grains and real light fruity hops. Not much going on here but there is nothing bad about this one, either. Real refreshing on a warm afternoon. Pretty decent.

Elwood (3168) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Serving: Draft. Appearance: Hazy, pale gold with a small, foamy, white head. Aroma: Light nose with hints of cereal and a touch of citrus. Flavor: Cereal dominates on the malt side, but there is a good balancing bitterness with citrus and floral notes. Palate: Medium-high carbonation with a light mouthfeel and a medium-short finish. Overall: It doesn’t quite have that crisp bite I was hoping for, but it is still a pretty good beer and not a bad interpretation of the style.
