On tap at the brewery. Pours a murky yellow with a foamy white head. Light crisp aroma, of lemons, yeast, and malt. Taste is clear and yeasty, with malt and citrus, that ends bready and with some bitter hops. Lingering clear bitterness. Nice kolsch.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Churchkey in D.C.
The beer appears a golden yellow and pretty clear with a thin white head that leaves random traces of lacing on the snifter. The aroma brings some grain, malty sweetness, and subtle fruit & floral notes. The flavor is quite good, and well balanced. This is one of the better examples of a kolsch I have had, especially from an American brewery. The sweetness is there, but I couldn’t see this beer becoming cloying. Nice grain and yeast flavors as well. I could put away a liter stein of this. Well done.
Serving type: on-tap

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw yellow with a medium white head that fades away quickly. Aroma of toasted malt, mild skunk, pale malt and a touch of sweetness and grains. Taste is sweet and malty with corn, malt, lemon and faint citrus. Goes down easy with low bitterness and mild citrus on the finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a mostly clear, yellow color. Not too much of a scent with some grains and wheat. Taste is rather malty while the texture seems a little too thin. There are some hints of citrus. Being my first Kolsch style beer, I’m not sure if this is good or not for the style. Quite drinkable, just wish there was some more volume and taste to the beer.

12oz bottle. Pale filtered yellow-tan, some chill haze. Thin head. Very thin bodied, with some lemony dry citrus hop balance. Light, delicate toasty malt backbone. An almost rindy, flavorless bitterness at times. Some faint skunky Pils undertones. OK.
