(on tap at Tria Taproom - served in a British-shaped 16 oz pint)

A: apparent chill haze on the pour, clears up a bit... yellow-golden liquid... starts with a fluffy pad of fuzzy foam that takes awhile to drop, never coming close to disappearing, leaving connecting bands of lace in the glass... very nice

S: doughy yeast on the nose, not unlike a Bavarian hefe... subtle floral hops - more a classic "hoppy" hop scent - green, pasture-al

T: uncommonly assertive noble-hoppy for the style - satisyingly herbal-bitter all the way through... delicate flare of honey and caramel in the finish... vaguely sweetish cereal-like malt flavor at its base... white fruity esters are there, just woven into the background

M: lightly frothy and smooth, moderately dry in the finish... it being unfiltered lends more body to an otherwise light, crisp ale

O: what a lovely brew!... undeniably a Kolsch in its overall constitution, however, it very nearly has a British real ale bitter character

Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with big fluffy white head, much of which stays for the duration, with rings of wispy lace halfway down. Smell: semi sweet pale, lightly grainy and grassy. Taste: fairly substantial herbal hopping, with snappy grain, lemon, mildly doughy, a bit fruity with grapeskin towards the finish. Very enjoyable.

A lightly malty aroma with a bit of herbal hops. Herbal hops and some musty malt character up front, finishes with more of the same character and a touch of yeasty character. Seems like it may be a bit past its prime and the point of an unfiltered kolsch may have been lost in this case.

Thick and full white head with excellent lacing on a slightly hazy golden with hint of a copper hue body. Aroma is fairly musty and earthy with notes of sweet lemon custard, pale malts, wheat and candy sugar. Flavor follows from the German hops are mostly herbal and semi sweet, pale malt base, additional notes of sweet breads. Light to medium body and light to moderate carbonation. About as good as a Kolsch gets for me.
