On tap at Churchkey. Served in a snifter.

Pours a clear golden color with a good, lasting white head. Good retention and a bit of spotty lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward a slight bit of grain plus some slight floral hops. Really good balance between those two. The flavor really nails the grain with light hop flavor and smooth hop bitterness. Light body and good carbonation. Really well done. This rivals COAST's 32/50 as the best Kolsch I've ever had. One day I'll go to Germany and we'll see how they compare to the real stuff. (547 characters)

On tap at Churchkey DC, this beer was truly amazing. One of the best Kolsches I've ever had. I was pleased to find out that it was a hit with others in attendance as well.

Beer is yellow with a mild haze and a thin white head that leaves spotty lacing with mild to moderate carbonation.

Aroma is mildly sweet with this nice yeast / grain mixture that is really appealing.

Wet, thin, watery but all in a good way. This beer is a quencher for sure. I could kill a keg of this stuff. It has a great mildly bitter finish. Mild but appropriate sweetness. Probably one of my favorites from the night. (597 characters)
