COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our 2011 Great American Beer Festival® Gold Medal award winning Kellerbier style Kӧlsch. Same recipe as our standard Kӧlsch, just an unfiltered version served cellar style like a German Brewer might enjoy directly from the lager tank. The experience might not be as crisp as the filtered version due to the presence of yeast and other proteins that are typically filtered out. Try them both and see for yourself!

Bamsen78 (5106) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2015
Draught @ Mad Fox Brewing Company - Glover Park Taproom, Washington, DC. Pours hazy straw with small white head. Clear aroma of malt and hops, with touches of citrus. Bitter, hoppy flavour with sweetish notes of yeast and malt and citrusy hints. Estery and bitter aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Drinkable but nothing really special.

jgb9348 (5820) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Golden coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of metal, light malt, alcohol and a hint of herbs and lemons. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic flavour up front with a very faint malt flavour and not much else - perhaps some light citrus. Aftertaste is bland, mild, uninspired and very simple - just some light malt and crisp metal, that’s it. Overall, a pretty poor offering that definitely isn’t recommended, but the only saving grace was that I could try this at Nats Park and avoid being disappointed when there is much better beer available. I sampled this twenty ounce pint on draught at Nats Park for the Yankees versus the Nationals on 20-May-2015 for US$10,00.

Nickls (2417) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Tap, Nationals Stadium. Hazy light lemon gold. Bready, slight malt sweetness and decent aroma. Flavor follows suit pretty closely but is missing some hoppy punch to carry some of the bread notes. Lighter soft body.

JDBaker11058 (1987) - Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Appearance: bright yellow, slightly cloudy, short soapy white head. Aroma: light lemongrass, hint of cereal grains. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: short, clean, hint of dry floral bitterness. Notes: Was really looking forward to this, but it was underwhelming. Plan to give it another shot next time I’m there. Draught at the brewery.
