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.

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.

Growler from Ale Yeah! Clear, pale yellow, with a small, bubbly, white head. Freshly cut grass, biscuit dough, lightly spicy (cloves, maybe? Or nutmeg), and some light, resinous and floral hops. Sweet and a little spicy. Faint bitterness through the finish. Light body, crisp, and a little chewy. Overall, this is a wonderfully drinkable and refreshing beer. Still flavorful and complex. Nice.

Draft at Sybarite Pig. Tulip. Pour a golden yellow with thick, fluffy white head. Great lace. Aroma of grains, citrus and malts. Taste is light and refreshing with modest carbonation. The crisp taste has grains, light malts, light citrus hops and an earthy finish of bread and yeasts. Very good Kolsch.

Clear pale yellow in color. Aroma of pale/crystal malt, but pleasant, yeah! Easygoing light malt body, crisp finish. Solid kolsch.

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

Terrapin Road Warrior Kolsch is a decent version of the German style that is popular in Cologne. Kolsch is a mild session beer and Road Warrior is no different. Pour is light amber with a scant head. Aroma is lightly hoppy. Taste is also light with a nice hop character and slightly sour. Finish is clean. Road Warrior is great for on the road but not particularly interesting in the world of craft beers.

drowland (6083) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
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.

On draft at Jakes on Main in Danville VA. Pours a hazy pale yellow gold with a white head. Light and crisp with malty biscuit flavor with a hint of lemon. Nice example of the style.
