look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a slightly cloudy golden yellow color with a one finger white foam head that settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic streaks and spots of lacing left behind.

The aroma is very spice forward with lots of ginger, pepper, clove and corriander followed by a slight grassy hop presence and some light fruit notes.

Medium bodied with a prominent zesty spice character up cent that lingers over the earthy and sweeter notes into a dry finish. Lots of pepper and ginger that slightly overpower the beer but kolsch characteristics are still evident. Subtle earthy hop, grass, straw and light fruit notes, notably apple and pear.

Overall this is an ok beer but unjust don't see how the spices improve anything. They aren't over the top and the beer is decently balanced but i'd rather just drink the regular kolsch.

on tap this weekend at Capt L tasting room in Pleasantville.

Pours a solid gold.

Aroma is wheat and spices.

Very deep texture - "tastes like food" - starts light and ends rich.

Would have left with a few growlers full - but they were out of glass.

Love this place and every beer I've tasted from them...

32 ounce growler pour from DeCicco’s in Ardsley, NY.

Apparently this is a spiced up take on the regular Captain L Kolsch.

Pours very clear and very light straw in color. Minimal near white heat, fades to a fine bubble sheen and medium collar and more then a few bits of lace.

Very minor nose of wheat like malt and perhaps a hint of spice.

I’m getting mild cinnamon, and some allspice and a hint of coriander, Spiced up Kolsch…who would have thunk it... easy drinking and enjoyable stuff, would work as a sessioner. Quite dry and enjoyable finish. Interesting and understated take on a frankly odd variation of the style. Lightly spiced Kolsch

Ehh, would def. not be the first thing I order out of a selection of the Captain's brews..

Serving type: growler
