Light golden color with one finger head. Aroma is light, citrus and grain coming through. Warm malt taste with banana and some bitter in aftertaste. Appears spritzy with bubbles visible but not overly carbonated. Drinkable and would be good summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg pour at Sedgwicks Bar, yellows golden pour with a nice white frothy head. Light in the mouth, taste of malt, not quite toast more like a white bread and it also sticks to your tongue. Nothing wow about it, but nothing you will complain about. Just going around successful and not singled out like a middle class office worker.

12oz bottle. Pours golden orange with an off white head. Aroma is of malt and grain. That’s about it. Taste is of malt, wheat, and not much else. There’s not a whole lot to it. Its not offensive, it’s just not much.

Maxbier (655) - Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2015
Draft. Yellow with thin white head.Aroma of ale yeast spiciness and hay. Slightly sour yeasty ale with a lemony heavy finish. True to the style and paired nicely with a brat.

This is an excellent American version of the Kolsch. Why? Because its the German version done well. Nice aroma, fruity aroma and taste all from yeast esters. Nice billowy head. Malty light refreshing great!

3/15/15 (Bottle) - Slightly Dark Golden light pour, mild carbonation, minimal white head. Nice fruity yeast and lemon aroma and taste. Beer felt light both in texture and is a light ABV, and it felt smooth and refreshing going down. Nice light beer.

Schwarzbart (71) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2015
From tap, it's straw colored and has nice thick lace. Nose surprised me with fruity notes, but also a little sour. Taste is fruity, tart, floral with light grains and some mild sour esters. Light and crisp. A nice representation of the style with a traditional base, but a unique flare. I'd take this over most of the Kolsch I had in Cologne. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Churchkey, DC. Pale gold. Crisp, juicy, clean. Sweet and tasty. Solid, but not best kolsch around.

stevoj (2744) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Close, but lacking some of the pure grain sweetness. Nice foamy head and lacing, but slightly cloudy. Hay, bready aroma, taste mostly white bread. Abrupt, flat finish.

Off metallic taste despite being in a bottle. Some hop bitterness and light citrus background wheat detectable as well. Not so good.
