The Kolsch from round barn is decent. It poured a clear yellow with white head that did not leave much lace. The scent was faint with hints of bread and touch of citrus. The taste was evenly balanced with biscuit base and slight lemon twang. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's sessionable but I have had better kolschs.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Had some bad experiences with previous Round Barn offerings, but that don't stop me never. Ever. Call me crazy. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear straw-brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises flowers, vague bread, and a few mild touches of lemon and green apple. The taste brings in more of the same, the bread leaning toward sourdough without fully committing, and a vein of grass running through the proceedings. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall, a pretty damn tasty kolsch, I must say. It's clean, it's crisp, and it's something I rarely say about beers: it's "refreshing". Good times.
