Quick Review:

Smell: White fruits

Taste: Slight notes of Pear, Bread and malt with a light hop finish.

Ap: Gold in color with almost no head and minimal lacing.

Notes: Nothing impressive but I could kick a few of these around before moving on to something better.

The least exiting of the beers I had at Rocky River but it was to be expected really,poured a dull light golden with a thinner but well retained white head atop.Mild grainy aromas lightly toasted a hint of floral hop but not much,flavors are toasted with light citrus notes with a lingering herbal-like finish.Its delicate with decent flavors but not one to go for with so many other selections on hand.

Had this at my first visit to the brewery. Light gold with a slight head. No lace to speak of.
Barely any smell but it could've been due to the location. I did however get a hint of wheat and bleached bread.
Crisp clean taste, very light but not very refreshing. I can't say I'd have it again. The wheat and malt were very transparent with virtually no hops save for the instance in the beginning,
Overall not bad but not a favorite.

On-tap at RRBC 3/11/07

A: Pours a golden color that is way too dark for the style. As with the rest of their beers, lots of sticky lacing on the glass.

S: A light, dull malt smell.

T: Light in taste with a malty flavor. Missing is the characteristic hops and yeast flavors that you find in most kolsches. Not offensive, but quite boring and off for the style.

M: Light, watery, and a bit chalky with moderate carbonation.

D: Not a horrible beer, but far from being a good one or from being close to style guidelines. Pass on this one.

Had this on-tap at the brewery:

This is a great beer to start the night off with. There is nothing big about it at all, but then again that is true to the kolsch style. I was a little suprised to see this on tap in November being that this is typically a warm weather beer. It was very refreshing and crisp and had just the right amount of bitterness to it. As long as they have this brew on-tap, I think I will always start off with it.

Nothing too big about this beer. This was a beer I had in the beginning of the night to open up more taste buds. However, this is almost identical to a miller or bud light. I was interested in it because there were some awards for it, I didn't think it deserved much credit; however, I am a pale ale drinker.
