Draft at Whole Foods in Alexandria, VA.

The beer is a cloudy, pale yellow with a white cap. Ample lacing. Aromas of bread, yeast. Pilsner malt with a mild hop component. Easy drinking. Light in body. I'd have this again.

growler from the brewpub into a pint glass, same day

a: curvy pint glass serving, yellow straw in color with a thorough haze, great retention of a bone-white head

s: opens with sweet bread and lots of yeasty goodness, glimpses of sulfur, some light fruits, a mild grassy hop profile

m: body moving to the heavier side of light, carbonation a low moderate

t: fresh white breads and an appealing fruity yeast profile take the reins here, mild hints of yeast spice here and there, grassy hops, very nice

o: this one mutes the crisp/clean character of the standard kolsch with sweet unfiltered yeast and rich breads, my preferred of the two

Thanks to Thorpe for the tick.

A - A clear, light yellow colored beer with a small white head that didn't leave much on the sides.

S - A little bready with some sweetness that comes in a touch fruity and tropical. Slight hops finish.

T - Taste is a lot like the nose, with a little bit of grass in there to give it more of a wet taste.

M - Light, crisp, good carbonation.

O - Nice beer, good for the style. Enjoyable to drink and easy to get down. Has some decent complexity for how low ABV it is.

Thanks to Thorpe for sending this our way. Growler into tulip.

A - Pours pale straw yellow, white head, thin collar.

S - Bready malts, floral notes, light fruity sweetness, and some hay. All very nice and refreshing and at 4.4%, it's got a good amount of complexity to it as well.

T - Bready/sweet malts, light floral notes, hay, maybe a touch of hops in there too. Again, a nice beer with some complexity for being only 4.4%. Finish is sweet malts and fruit.

M - Light body, good carbonation, refreshing, clean finish.

O - A really nice beer that's super-easy to drink. Lots going on, and at 4.4%, I would drink early and often. Something perfect for the summer months again. Good stuff.

I had on tap at the brewery. FYI: Our bartender was a dickhead.

Served in a pilsener glass.

A: Poured mildly hazy, with quite the extreme carbonation bill. The head was about a finger or so and stuff around for the show.

S: Wow! Yummy yeast, muted fruit, and freshly baked bread-like sweetness.

T: Sourdough bread, as a matter of fact, with both a sweet and sour disposition. Also, the yeast blended well with all this madness, making this one highly gulpable.

M: With the cushiony yeast and disciplined sweetness, this one was very comfortable on the palate and nothing really lingered or stuck out negatively to my mind.

O: I can't wait to grab a growler of this stuff in the summertime. Hell, it's just right down the street!
