shadey (2171) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 27, 2010
At local restaurant in DC area. Crystal clear golden color with a vapor thin head of white. Aroma is wheaty and just a touch doughy. Very light body. Not good for the style.

Lubiere (14240) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2010 A pale blonde kolsch with a very thin white head. In aroma, light malt with strong chlorine (maybe from the washing). In mouth, a nice clean crisp kolsch with smooth hops, tingly and quaffable. On tap at brewpub, Feb. 26 2010.

On tap at Capitol City Downtown. Last beer of the night so I made notes as a deluge of alcohol brutally assaulted my brain, as has happened on many, many an occasion. It’s really a miracle that my IQ has not dropped into the single digits after all this. Anyway, this beer pours a clear bright golden color with a nice white head that sticks around and leaves some lacing. Aroma is pale malt, grain, and mild grassy hops. Flavor is more of the same - pale malt, graininess, grassy hops. Almost exactly what you’d expect for a fairly good representation of this style. Palate is somewhat light and crisp with an appropriate carbonation level.

On tap at Capitol City. Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head. Crisp lemon and light grain, with a hint of plastic. Piles of grain, little bit of lemon. More bitter grain on the finish.

Tap @ Capitol Hill.
Clear golden yellow, white head. Aroma of bready malts. Clean crisp hops. Flavor is bready. Clean, crisp, and refreshing. Nice lingering hop left behind.

Very pale, almost like water. Light body and nearly flavorless. Perhaps a good beer for a hot day.

checkmatei1 (783) - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Draft @ Brewpub: Poured a golden yellow without much head. The aroma was malty. The flavor was grainy and malty. Overall, the easiest beer to drink at this brewpub.

3.1
Dogbrick (14287) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Sample at the Downtown location. The beer is a clear yellow-gold color with a thin and fizzy white head that burns away quickly. Spots of lacing on the glass under a ring at the top. Fruity aroma with malt underneath. Light and crisp body with flavors of fruit, sweet malt and mild grassy hops. The finish is fruity with a short mild bitterness left over. Just average overall.

On tap at Capitol City.....Very light offering....nice golden colour with a bready/malty aroma.....wet mouthfeel and extremely coiffable.....Good but lacking flavour for my taste.
