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.

5/23/13. On tap at the Distillery. Clear golden pour with a nice off-white head. Bready, doughy aroma with light caramel. Big doughy malt flavor, crackers, and a touch of cream. Not bad.

Comes out of the growler a very pale yellow - not impressive, but I like my beers dark, and since the ivory head is quite fluffy and thick I’ll give it a break. Wheaty aroma has subtle yeast and fruity notes. Crisp flavor is rather like a typical lager, but with more yeast and apple and just a touch of hops. Firm, smooth texture has a decent, if not impressive, amount of fizz. Hey, always glad to support a good cause, especially with beer! :D

Tap. Pours clear yellow/gold with thin, creamy, white head. Aroma is biscuit and cereal malts, grassy notes, light fruit, and hay. Flavor is dry malts, light fruit esters, and faint hop bitterness; crisp, dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

michael-pollack (4959) - 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 (4803) - Woodstock, 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.
