Draft. Light golden pour. Definitely the newer kolsch, via the old ratings were of a better beer. Citrus, and earthy spice notes along with some bready malt notes. Alright. tgncc (3129) - Bellmore, New York, USA - APR 25, 2010

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, cereal grain, honey, sweet malt. Flavor is sweet upfront with a malty, bready finish. Easy drinking, tasty Kolsch. Slightly on the sweet side but that’s it’s only flaw.

On-tap at Cole’s. Light colour, with carbonation bubbles. Neutral aroma, minimal head. This is a thirst quencher but the taste was rather minimal. Unoffensive but fairly plain, and so not that drinkable. jgb9348 (6189) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2010
Clear golden coloured body with a very thick white head that leaves a nice lace. Aroma of strong lemons, nice malt, coriander seed and a bit of fresh floral hops. Light-bodied; Nice fresh, malt flavours with a lemony, citrus freshness, some mild spicey flavours and a good dry finish. Aftertaste shows some good complexity, with the malt and dry spiceyness most noticeable. Overall, a decent kolsch - showing good complexity, some good citrus flavours and just missing perhaps a bit of body and maltiness. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 15-April-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 20-April-2010.

The bright golden pour is clear like water and quickly develops a fine inch thick cover. Grainy, softly mineral, borderline sulphury (in a good way) ale with a fine herbal/grassy hop profile. Very refined, polished aroma. In mouth, the entrance touches the tip of the tongue with a delicious bready, pie crust, meringue sweetness that grows into lemony refreshment as it reaches the sides and becomes spot-on cleansing bitterness towards the back of the tongue, with more salty, grassy, peppery hints and minute floweriness, all in dryness as it closes out. While the description may sound basic, this is one of very few beers that make me rediscover the basic tastes all anew. An eminence of drinkability, its palate is crisp with an engaging bite. One of the very best American Koelsch I’ve had. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 19, 2010
