COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Kölsch style beer is a golden-blonde ale that is our version of Cologne's native style. Soft, subtle maltiness and a clean finish make it a great thirst-quencher. Kölsch pairs well with spicy foods, or by itself. Enjoy with friends and in good health. Round Barn beer is bottle conditioned, decant into a pint glass before drinking for the best taste experience.

12 oz. bottle (X3) from MI craft beer sampler 12 pack, served in a shaker on 12-27-15- Poured a lightly turbid transparent darkened yellow color, white ring about the glass for a head. Aroma of wheat and Saaz hops. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt tastes horribly oversweatened to me, at least the finish is somewhat clean and crisp.

On tap at the brewery. Light malt aromas. Light lemon and pale malts. Dry herbal hop finish. Nothing bad, nothing remarkable.

Onslow (1318) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear pale yellow brew with one finger of white head that immediately passes. Aroma of light grains, green fruit, a little grass. Taste is light malty grain with some green fruit and slightly earthy finish.Thin palate. I could maybe see quaffing this on a really hot day but even then it would not be a first choice.

Draft. From notes. Meh, somewhat sub par kolsch, lawnmower beer for sure. Drinkable, just not much of anything going on here.

nuplastikk (5370) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours with a massive infected head and quite disturbing harsh green apple tones. Completely infected. Way gone. Shabby action from Round Barn. Not even close. Black speckles and floaties are not something I look for in a Kolsch. Joke on the consumer.

This brewery either has an extremely apply house character or they have an infection in the bottling line. This is the second beer I’ve had from them and they have both had this same flavor and neither in a style appropriate for it. It is a slightly hazed orange corlor w/ a big foarmy head of mixed bubbles. It smells of ripe red apples w/ a bit of a lavender overtones. It tastes slightly sweet which emphasizes the apple. There is something of an earthy hop character here but what malt comes through is just simple sweetness. This comes off as bit heavy but there is at least heavy carbonation to cut it a bit. The finish is sweet and fruity w/ a bit of a banana note coming out. This is very definitely not a koelsch and most likely this is not the beer the brewer intended for me to drink. It is not altogether foul, which is something in an infected beer, but it really isn’t any good either.

12oz bottle, thanks to robotopera for sharing (he got it from Wine & Cheese in Manitou Beach. Pours a hazy orange gold color. Finger of off-white head. Kind of darker than your typical kolsch. Up front, I can tell it’s off. Kind of a soft, slightly stronger carbonation. Slight musty metallic flavor. Sort of tart taste. I’m thinking this is an old bottle with a brettanomyces infection. Mild breadiness, some citrus aroma, light peppery hop. This might have been a solid kolsch fresh, I’m sensing, but right now it’s kind of a weird mess. Not bad, but meh with the flaws. Unfortunate, because it seems like theirs a solid kolsch under there. Awesome grungey label, though.
