Tap, Seattle. Pours a crystal clear dark gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is sweet and buttery with some honey like malt. The flavor is really heavy on the diacetyl with not much else making an impact. Some weak watery caramel on the finish. Light to medium bodied, a little sticky and clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty darn bad, all diacetyl and not much else. Pretty awful for me. jerseyjohn71 (308) - Corsicana, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2014

Draft at IAD. No detectable aroma. Taste is not much better. Hops water with no malt. No character. Darkmagus82 (2303) - - JUN 25, 2014
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear light golden color with a billowy white head. The head has a lighter level of retention, fading to leave a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – A slightly sweet fruity aroma of pear and peach as well as a little bit of sweet honey complement a decently strong bready smell nicely. Along with these aromas are some hoppy smells of a light herbal and grassy nature producing a rather nice smelling brew overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a somewhat crisp cracker like flavor mixed with a bit of graininess and a lighter sweetness of a fruity nature with some pear, white grape, and apple. Quickly some hop flavors come to the tongue, with a lighter flavor of grass and hay being the strongest. As the taste advances these hop flavors get stronger in nature all while the fruit flavors fade some. The fruit however has a slight resurgence at the end however, with the mix of tastes leaving a moderately sweet, but still rather crisp and clean, lightly hopped, malt flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite thin with a carbonation level that is very high. The combination of the two really create a wonderfully crisp drinking beer, complementing the blend of lighter fruit flavors, malt, and grassy hop flavors rather well.
Overall – A fairly nice kolsch. Nothing super extraordinary, but very enjoyable none the less.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2014 Sampled on draft at the Las Vegas location this beer poured a pale yellow color with a small soapy white head that faded and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was faint and grainy with a hint of citrus. The flavor was grainy and dryish with a bot of citrus and perfume and a light tangy undertone. Medium length finish. Light body. Not good.

6/21/2010. Golden color with a white head. Mild hoppy aromas with malt, may, bread and corn. Refreshing flavors, but somewhat boring and mediocre. EdInSaltLake (748) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Light herbal, floral aroma--more in the flavor. Sweet malt flavor; a little biscuit-y malt in finish. A little astringent. Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. There are notes of honey, corn, sweet pilsner malt, slight fruity esters in the aroma. The flavor is corn, sweet pilsner malts. Really clean beer, just a boring style.
