Travlr (13304) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Draught at Churchkey. Bright yellow, edge head. Aroma of white pepper and malt. Taste is malty with a slightly sour edge. More interesting than your standard Kolsch.

brokensail (11551) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 2, 2014
On tap @ Schlafly. Clear golden pour with a white head. Bready malt, some sweet apple, and a light grassiness. A little bit watery. Lots of bready malt on the palate. Tons of apple and floral hops. A bit low on the carbonation and somewhat watery. Easy to drink, I suppose.

bhensonb (11512) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Bottle from the Beergeek. Amber gold, nearly orange, color with a minimal white head. Aroma of mild malt and light, fruity hop. Near medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is a bit caramel, which seems odd for the style, and the hop is quite light, just enough for balance, which seems right for the style. About as light and smooth as kolsch should be, just a bit too much malt.
