First had: on tap at the Corner Cafe, Tequesta, FL

Kolsches aren't my thing really, but since TBC was closed and this was one of the few of their brews they had on tap next door at the Corner Cafe, I figured I go for a taster. Clearish golden-yellow pour with a fuzzy white head that retained as a ringlet and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of cereal grains, corn, and slight fruit notes, possibly from the hops. Taste was similar, toasted grains, corn, light herbal and earthy hops, and a subtle fruity undertone that almost reminded me of the flavor you might get from Belgian yeast. Light body, pretty easily drinkable. Not my style, but not bad for the style.

From tap to taster at Due South tasting room on 6/2/12
*From notes

A: Lemon Radler looking cloudy yellow in color. A 1.5 finger white bubbly head and a solid collar. rims the glass.

S: Cheerios, with a citric bite to it. Pretty different stuff.

T: Intense, citric lemon. I get some freshly cut sheet paper and wet earth. Quite off the wall for a Kolsch.

M: A bit thin and light bodied. The carbonation is sharp and overzealous.

O: One of the whackier Kolsch's I've ticked. There are certain parts that really fit the bill, yet others that make me feel like Black Rob sayin' "Whoah!" I wouldn't turn anyone away from this one, just keep your mind open and ready for this glass o' strange.

Draft at CCB. Gold color with a fine white head and moderate lacing. Not a lot of aroma, but smells of slight malt and yeast. The taste is crisp and spicy/floral followed by a slightly sweet malty flavor and a nice hoppy bitterness. I really like this beer a lot and hope to see it in wider distribution.

Arrives a clear, bright yellow with a small white head (due to a full glass). Head drops to a thin film pretty fast and no lace is forthcoming.
Smell is malty, yeast and fresh corn tortilla chips with a faint hop note. Fairly light nose overall but decently balanced.
Taste is exactly the same. Malt, yeast and warm corn tortillas. Faint hop in the back and late.
A well-balanced, medium-bodied brew with a good effervescence. I actually nursed this beer for an hour and it was just as good at the end as it was at the beginning. My first from this brewery, even in a style I rarely drink, was a good one.

On-tap at CCB. Pours a pale straw hue, clear and fizzy, and is crowned with a huge puff of white foam. The nose is sweaty, husky, and smells faintly like pool water; it is not so good. The taste, on the other hand, is very interesting and enjoyable, offering a rich toasty grain flavor unlike any beer I can recall. I would say the brew had a flavor somewhat like multi-grain chips or crackers, tinged with a hint of herbal spice. The feel is soft and light. Strange brew, but I like it.

On tap at coffee district in delray, florida.

I'm not usually a kolsch fan, but i think this is a suberb example of the style that TBC has put out for us.

Perfect summer beer, next time we have a pool party, probably next weekend, gonna go to TBC and get a couple of growlers, this easy drinking kolsch has just enough bite to pair with a steak on the grill in my mind

on tap at WOB coconut creek, FL poured into pint shaker glass:

A- golden straw yellow and clear, bubbles springing up from the glass but not everywhere. 1 finger bubbly foam head dissipates to ~1/2 but laces down beautifully.

S- bright hoppyness w/ citrus, some slightly bready tones backing it.

T- Clean and spicy hop, slight lemony citrus as in flavor. ending softens and lighter malty tones finish w/ enough hop to end clean. refreshing taste, wished i had been sitting outside for this one!

M- light bodied but carbonated well to not be thin, somewhat dry in the beginning but soft in the end, finishing crisp w/o being harsh.

O- Fresh beer really shows, this beer is brewed in the county north of us and the kegs are always great quality. I wish this beer came bottled i would be my go-to 6 pack of the summer. Worth trying and you could drink it all night, i plan to make a brewery visit to fill a growler or two with this when i have the time and money.

Poured out of a growler into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a very light golden brown color. Head rolled out at about one inch. Pure white. Quickly recedes to just a light coat. Faint lacing on glass. Well carbonated.

S - Some light fruit smell almost seems like grapes. Just a bit citrusy as well. Tad sweet in the nose.

T - Crisp and complex taste. Tastes of toasted nuts and grapes. Has some biscuity flavor as well. Malt is there albeit light. Honey seems to bring the sweetness. Just a faint spiciness.

M - Like the taste this is one clean, crisp Kolsch. Refreshing. Dry at the finish. No trace of alcohol at all.

D - Immensely drinkable. Dangerously drinkable. I want more.

* Reviewer is a total homer for TBC brews. Matt the brewer is the man. Reviewer suggests you go and get a few beers and try them for yourself.
