chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, - JUN 24, 2013
On tap at Capitol City, Downtown location in July 2006. Pale straw colour. Not too much to it but clean and crisp. Refreshing on the palate. Just a slight, gentle underlying hop bite. I’m not often a big fan of these brewpub Kolsch efforts but this one hit the mark well enough.

Jyrsa (963) - - NOV 11, 2017
Tap at the brewhaus. Clear yellow with light white head. Faint nose of malt. Malty and a touch salty, almost as if there were olives in here. Strong lager yeast and not much else. Wide bouquet for a lager.

2.7
Cybercat (6153) - Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2017
Taps clear golden with a thin eggshell head. Aroma presents fresh malt and a snip of hops, not strong but serviceable. Flavor offers good raw malt and subtle hop tones. Clean mouthfeel has OK fizz and body. Capital in the Capitol!

FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2017
Sampled on draft the brewpub this beer poured a yellow-gold color with a medium sized foamy off white head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was dry, grainy and a bit off. The flavor as dry, grainy, off, almost medicinal and a bit grassy. Medium length finish. Light to medium body. Not good.

bhensonb (15760) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 2, 2017

dwyerpg (6413) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 1, 2017
Light and simple, there isn’t much here but nothing wrong either. Easy beer and a nice one to enjoy as my first Virginia brew.

2.8
RedSox2004 (1975) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - FEB 8, 2017
On tap downtown. Clear yellow gold with an off-white head that settles to a thin film and leaves moderate lace. Aromas of grain, grass, and malt. Mild hop bitterness with earthy and grassy flavors. Medium body and carbonation, watery mouthfeel and a clean finish. Forgettable.

3.6

On tap at Downtown brewpub. Orange, straw body. Hops and spicier notes. Crisp in the texture. Decent.

Draft sampler at the Capitol Hill location on July 11, 2009--I just found my old notes. Pale yellow color, bold but cheap-smelling grainy nose, pleasant if rather light sweet tangy flavor. Just might be serviceable for quick hot weather quaffing.
