COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in honor of the Athen’s Twilight Criterium, a professional bike race held in downtown. The first of the few kegs produced will tap today at Classic City Brewfest in Athens. The rest will be available at select places during the Twilight. Spike Buckowski, brewer at Terrapin tried to mimic the exact process and ingredients that make German style Kölschs great. Proceeds from the beer sales benefit the Twilight Foundation which oversee’s the race.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of fruit, wheat, malt, grain, and a hint of hops. Poured yellow/gold in color with a small, creamy, dense head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Clear. Very slightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of fruit, malt, and grain. Light to medium body. Slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly dry, lightly sweet, malt, fruit, grain finish. A kolsch???

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2013
16 ounce pint - $5.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Served up a translucent, medium yellow-hued body with a very slim, powder white head. Good lacing.

Smell: A bit weak in the aromatics department, with just light notes of pale malted grain, sweetish cereal hints, and a little accent of spicy-minded hops.

Taste: Slender pale maltiness, a little hint of wheat and an overall cereal sweetness. Never more than a very faint fruitiness. Minor spiciness contributed by the hops, its soft bitterness is accentuated by the carbonation. Near dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It’s a decent American-born Kolsch.

unclemattie (4185) - Georgia, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Terrapin Twilight Road Warrior. Tap @ TacoMac, Johns Creek. Clear, golden color, rocky white head. Dominated by a bread and pilsner malt flavor. Smell of straw and malt. Loads of bread balanced with earthy hops. Slightest bit of lemon zest. One of the best Lagers I’ve ever had.

maxwelldeux (3662) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Draught, end of the keg. Pours a very clear golden color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is that slightly skunky lager smell that so many cheap lagers have. Taste is light, but with that slight bit of skunk in there. Meh.

Not so fond of Terrapin beers but I have to admit they taste nice and are well brewed. It was refreshing as it’s style.
