A thin head and faint hoppy aroma are tipoffs to the weak flavor. Not much to recommend here.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - APR 21, 2008
Pours a light golden color into the mug, with a light frothy head, nice little fruity aroma, bready malt background. I hate to be a style nazi, but this far pails in comparison to what a kolsch should taste like. It is very very light, and so far very few of their beers are really true to style.

Replaced by the White Ale. Crisp and very refreshing just as the White. A nice balance of the hops and spices. Very good but vey shrt lives The Summer Ale is out before you know it (early April). No complaints here!

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2008 7/19/2004. Goden, light bodied ale topped by a medium white head with some lacing. Fruity aroma and flavor with only a little bit of hops mixed in. I was a little disappointed but it’s plenty refreshing to get the job done.

On tap, pours a cloudy blond with a decent white head. Nice herb and citrus aroma. The beer itself seems a little thin, but it is easily drinkable. Some citrus to the flavor, decent kolsch.

Pours a hazy pumpkin-amber with a white head. Active, fast carbonation. On the nose, a good amount of citrus (lemon and orange peel), mellow herbs, maybe some mint?, and some sweet spice (perhaps cinnamon?). Light-medium body with good carbonation makes it drinkable in nice weather. On the palate, refreshing citrus, and more exotic spice (coriander, black pepper) than on the nose. Overall, quite a refreshing beer. Its complexity is clearly from cogeners rather than grain and hops, but it’s not too in-your-face artificial and overpowering. A nice beer for a summer day.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Tap at Dempseys: Golden with a dense white head. Nose has some rotted fruit skin notes with a marmalade sweetness. Velvety feel with a ripe apple, fruity sweetness followed by that typical Sam Adams grainy malt character. Pretty boring.

daknole (11041) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Well this beer should be better than it is. Cloudy and blond with a light colored head. Has some hints of lemon and a tart weird finish. Not the best of beers.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Barely drinkable, hazy lite golden pour with descent sized white froathy head. Aroma of lite hop, grassy earthy dirt flavors and aroma. Too much of that earthy taste combined with an over zealous lemon zest to it.

Looks like apple juice. light white head. very light fruity hop aroma. Nothing speacial in flavor.
