Pours somewhat cloudy. Golden color with bright white head. The aroma is filled with sweet fruits, some white bread, and a mild earthiness. The flavors are wonderfully mouthcoating for the style. Apples, mild hop bitterness, an almost buttery quality as well, but really crisp and clean. Great Spring beer. UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Had on tap at a local pub, poured into a cheater pint.
A: nice straw yellow, slick 1/2" head with decent retention, reduces to a cap
S: neutral scent, slightly sweet, mild floral
T: nice biscuity and grain sweetness well balanced with flowery hops
M&d: as expected, ligh mouth. Excelllent drinkability. Kolschs are the shit and this is an excellent example.

Tap @ Captain Lawrence... Poured hazy golden/yellow with a white head. Not a memorable one here. Which is a first for these guys. I picked up traces of diacetyl. Mild floral and earthy tones, a malty sweetness and a clean yeast finish. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 17, 2012
draft at captain lawrence has a light golden color and a thin white head. aroma has some grains, nice hops, light rye spice, and some light tropical notes. mouth feel is light and the carbonation average. flavor is a bit grainy out of the gate, mild bitterness, some bitter pine, herbs, and a touch of dry hop tropics. a nice refreshing beer and super fresh like this the hop touches are appreciated.

A hazed blonde kolsch with a thick creamy lacing white head. In aroma, a nice creamy crisp biscuitty malt with mineral and lemony notes. In mouth, a nice crisp malt with light fruity esters, German hops, very classic mineral notes. On tap at Shorty’s on 9th Ave, Dec. 29 2011.

In short: A nice bed of straws and cereals with a green herbal hop bill. Decent brew.yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2011
How: Tap at Ginger Man, NYC
The look: Clead blonde body topped by a medium white head with good retention
In long: Nose of fresh cereals and light herbal hops notes. Taste is full of dried straws, fresh chewy pale malts, distant notes of passion fruits. Generously hopped (relative to the style) with green herbal hops that at times reminded me of thyme or another cooking similar dried green herbal spice. Overall this was a satisfying pint even if the hop bill was a bit harsh in the finish. Drinking this beer in this renowned downtown Manhattan beer bar I realized that there is only two kinds of people who live in New-York, people who were born there and people who moved there.
Light yellow color. Aroma and flavor are nice and dry. Some light bitterness. Quite drinkable. A bit of grain and cereal, light pine and herbs, finished clean. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2011
On tap at Blind Tiger, NYC. Certainly one of the lesser offerings I’ve had from this otherwise terrific brewery. Pale yellow pour, nicely frothy off tap, and inviting to look at. Nose of pale malts, slight spice, and maybe just a hint of fruit. Light body, needs substantially more liveliness to it. Taste is a bit anonymous. I suppose it’s more or less to style, with again a blend of faint spice and dry fruits, but nothing that elevates it beyond the quaffer tick. yespr (48915) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2011
From tap at Gingerman. Pours pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild fruity, grassy and hayish. Fruity, light grassy and hoppy. Bitter and dry finish, slight sweetness. Pwn3d (1958) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Tap at the brewery with maggi, pj and Brendan. A great kolsch... Crisp with a bit tangy character. Hay, sugars...’light but flavorful.
