3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ginger ale look, extremely pale brass. Big white, well-lacing head. Smells of water. Taste is tangy, voluminous lemon and grapefruit hops. Prickles the inside of cheeks. Grapes - tangy white ones, plus wheat and grains, cotton. On a hot day, this is awesome. If it only had a better smell this would be a top beer. Sampled on draught at the brewery in Arlington, VA.
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a light clear straw color with a white head. The nose brings forward some grain and very subtle fruit flavors. The taste is a bit of grain with light stone fruits. Some straw as well. Really light with crisp carbonation. Easy drinking and quite light.
Serving type: on-tap

Draft at brewpub. Golden with a very small offwhite head. Smalls almost like nothing, just a hint of pale malt. Flavor is cereal, pale malt, and very little (skunky) hoppiness. Smooth and light bodied on the palate with some tingly carbonation. Overall: boring, but certainly descent for a session. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2010

Draft at RB Arlington. This is not the same beer, the Light Ale was not a Kolsch in any discernible way. Pours a super pale yellow with white head. crystal clear. Nose is far off noble hops and corn. Taste is almost non-existent, some faint grain and that’s it. Clean.

16oz draft. Clear yellow color, no head by time it made it to the table. Aroma is unremarkable. Flavor is light, not offensive, nothing special though. j12601 (12979) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2009
On tap at Rock Bottom. Pours a clear light yellow with a thin white head. Light grain and a bit of citrus. Watery and tasting of nothing but grain. Finishes with a lingering grainy bitterness. blutt59 (6573) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2009

Thought this beer was very dull and average, not terrible, just not a ton there...
Sampled on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear very pale yellow color with a small head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is strong corn and grain. Taste is lightly bitter grassy hops, corn and grain. Thin bodied. Much like a pale lager.
