I know, if it’s not brewed in Cologne, it’s not a true Kolsch. This is after American style Kolsch! It nails the subtle yet crisp nuances of a Gaffel. Very nice beer!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at HM. Pours a well carbonated, clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of cereal grains, Cheerios, light grass and some mild bitterness. Taste is much the same, very clean on the palate, light notes of some fruit, and grassy floral hops among the cereal graininess. Solid, smooth drinkable session.

I don’t usually score Kolsch-style beers this high, but this one was very good. The Moonlight Kolsch was very refreshing and delicious. It poured a hazy light golden color with a decent-sized head. The body was crisp, semi-light, but delicious. The flavors were slightly hoppy, but balanced nicely with a sturdy malt backbone.

On tap at Moonlight. Pours an almost clear gold with a thin white head. A touch catty and dirty on the nose, soft grain, crackers. Crisp grain, light and crackery, biscuits and malt. Nice and grainy, a touch of musk. Very nice, easy drinking, quite crisp and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Halfpint at the brewpub. Pours crystal clear, super-pale golden and a thin clean white head. Aroma is a whiff of faint but perceptible pilsner malt that’s not dirty, but not clean. Flavors are mediocre and really light. There’s a bit of cracker, but a bit of wet, oxidized pils malt. Minimal to no hops. Water profile seems dull. Carbonation is a touch high. At this point, I’m underwhelmed with the menu of beers here. Nothing is standing out. There’s nothing egregiously wrong with what they’re pouring, but things are unexciting and just every so slightly off, like the ingredient quality isn’t the greatest, or some part of the brewing process (fermentation maybe) is a little sloppy.
