another new one for me, i decided to bring a few bottles home and try them last night. served cold and poured into a pint glass, consumed on 09/19/2010.

the pour was light amber with loads of carbonation coming up towards the surface. really just very well done. nice head of white caps the top nearly perfectly and smooth lacing coats the sides

light aroma of fresh grass and tons of grains just come through the air lightly. bready with a hints of herbals it just needs that little extra punch to throw it over the top. crisp, clean and light flavor leaves a small dry finish that begs you to drink more.

overall a very solid little beer i would not mind trying again at all.

Bomber poured into a pint glass, it appears a clear light orange color with a thin film of slightly offwhite head. Spotty amount of lace clings to the glassware. Slight hop character in the nose along with a bit of grain. Very clean, crisp and refreshing taste with a bit of grainy sweetness and a crisp slight hop finish. Light body and lively level of carbonation. Lingering faint taste of grains, hops and a touch of sulfur. Lots of active carbonation with this, it would be a pretty decent lawnmower or beach beer. As it warms, more hop character comes out in a grassy note and a bit herbal but nothing overpowering.

A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden yellow with some brighter yellow highlights and moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall bright white head that reduces to a couple of small thin patches with a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of bready and cereal grain malts along with just a touch of grassy hops.

T: Moderate flavors of cereal grain and bready malts with some lighter notes of lemon citrus and just a touch of apple crispness. There is a light note in the finish of something metallic and just a hint of bitterness.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Pretty easy and refreshing, this would be a great beach beer when you are out in the OBX - the hint of lemon makes this one a good thirst quencher.

This is my first go-round with Weeping Radish in almost 2 years. The last interactions went, well, poorly. It sounds like the QC issues that plagued them have been resolved, hence this beer in my glass now.

A: The kolsch-style beer is a golden straw color, pale but not pallid. Even cold it projects no haziness in the glass. A sizeable head, nearly two fingers, is slowly bubbling away with thin entrails of lace left behind.

S: So far, so good. The kolsch has a crisp hoppy aroma, pleasantly light with ample malt sweetness.

T: Very nice. The pale malts are biscuity and stand out in each sip. Gone are the off flavors, metals, and general nastiness, replaced by an honest-to-goodness kolsch. The biscuity malts has fruity side flavors, a little ripe green apple here and there. Hops are crisp but subtle, out of the limelight that the malts occupy.

M: The kolsch is light, malt-focused with just enough hops to work. The flavors are spot-on and miles away from where Weeping Radish used to be.

D: More, please. This beer makes me want to pick up a bottle of Black Radish and give it a test run again. I'm glad that someone at WR realized that something was epicly wrong and took the proper steps to correct it.

A - bright yellow with a thin cap of loose, soft, white head that has decent retention

S - cereal grains, a bit musty

T - cereal grains, lemon, a bit tart, grassy

M - light to medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a light, easy drinking beer that is perfect for hot days. It's a bit fruity and slightly tart, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Starts off real good as a cloudy, orangish hue, darker than expected for a kolsch, w/ great carb leads to frothy head that dies leaving lace patches on top of a good pils malt, peppery and some bitter hop aroma. Light-bodied, smooth, even a touch of creaminess up front but unfortunately the pils malt amd graininess slightly overpower the hops and fruit taste. Basically, a dry beer with a spicy backbite and some sharp citric hops on the backend but just a touch off for my liking of this style. An enjoyable sipper but I hope they tweak the recipe so that some citric hops and maybe a touch of other fruits shine more.

Pours a very cloudy dirty amber with a mostly tight off white head and a few large bubbles. The nose offers some interesting aromas that don't work together well. There is some stale bread, light dough, sulfer seltzer like arome, and bitter fruity hop, bananas and berries but light. The flavor is harsh, it is extremely stale and very dry bread like. The sulfer is still there, the hop presence is the bright point with some juicy citrus in the back but the sulfer and bitterness make it very off putting. the body is light, a hint oily, good carbonation. A little rough, not aweful but a bit bad.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a slightly bronzed sunny-golden-yellow color, total clarity, and a head that is white but wispy, dying down quickly. Leaves small vertical splats of lace on the glass.

Smell is mostly that not-unappealing metal-meets-bread vibe of typical German lagers of various sorts. A kind of sulfur-ish element with that white bread/biscuit graininess, and a slight hint of white grape.

It doesn't taste quite as nice as it smells, lacking depth and certainly lacking the kind of pleasing bitterness of an authentic German kolsch. It's nice enough though, bready but light in the malt department, pils-like and lemony in the hops area, with a dab of white grape juice in there. Feels good enough, amply carbonated and remarkably slick, just about right for this kind of beer without wowing or anything. Finishes sort of dry and metallic.

This is quite okay. Goes down nice and easy on a hot, humid day, but it's not gonna be anyone's best introduction to this oft-brewed, rarely-nailed style. Pretty much gotta go to the fatherland for that.

A- Pours a clear yellowish orange color with a very thin white head. Head forms a layer of bubbles and leaves hardly any lacing.

S- Smells of grassy hops, lemons and grains. Not too much else going on here. Just a touch of a spice in here too.

T- Follows the nose pretty well a good balance between the spice of the hops, lemon citrus and malts. A bit of a metallic finish.

M- Light in body and good carbonation.

D- Very easy to drink especially on a hot humind day.

A big thanks goes out to my sister for bringing this one back for me.

22oz bottle, poured into a stemmed lager glass. Pours a dark gold with a luscious off-white head as a capper. This froth retained well, leaving bits of lace clinging to the glass. The nose on this one is very "green" and vegetable-like. Mild herbal aromas with a touch of fruit on the finish.

Moderately carbonated beer with plenty of zip where it matters. Crisp and clean. Flavors of sweet apples, green leafies, and a mild hop presence make this beer a refreshing treat. Light bitterness, and light alcohol make it accessible and satisfying. This beer gives credence to an otherwise sub-bar brewery.

This one's for you Andy!

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately fast and leaves next to no lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of grainy malts, some breadiness, grassy hops and perhaps subtle notes of lemon.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some grainy/bready malts, a touch of grassy hops and some faint lemon.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-med carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by decent flavors and aromas.

Serving type: can
