This style originated in the area of Cologne, Germany. It exhibits the more desirable features of both ales and lagers. Our Kolsch is pale gold with light body and a slightly dry palate. It has a mild bitterness and delicate hop aroma. This beer is a clean and pleasant thirst quencher, which earned a Bronze Medal at the 1998 Great American Beer Festival. 4.6 - 5.0% alcohol, by volume

Obtained at wine store in downtown Annapolis. 12 oz. bottle to dimpled mug. Pours pale yellow with thick off-white head that lasts and laces nicely. Some sour notes with bread and hops. Taste is a bit heavy on the cloves, but has a very nice finish. Pretty good for the style.

On tap at Silver in Bethesda. Nice golden body with slight head. Nose is sweet, hoppy, with citrus. Taste is similar of hops, honey. Quite nice. Some spices in there too. Good one.

Appearance: clear gold, short white head, minimal lacing. Aroma: cracker, light pie crust, honey, light notes of citrus and fresh flowers. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: clean, crisp, dry, and just a little spicy. Notes: I was surprised at how good this was. I guess you don’t expect a smaller local to so effectively nail a pretty challenging style, but this was right on point. Shows me to be a total snob, so: sorry Brewer’s Alley, nice work! Bottle from Ye Old Spirit Shop in Frederick, Maryland.

obguthr (6926) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Yeasty hay nose with a urine presence. Hazy amber, thin head. Lemony hay, corn pops at midpalate and beyond. Light body, moderate carbonation.
