From 09/16/14 notes from CBC in MA.

Pours a somewhat clear golden color with one inch of bright white head and low carbonation evident. Bready malts, grains, dough, wheat, kind of bland. Light body with low to mod carbonation. Easy to drink.

Overall ok but kind of bland. Would pass next time.

Poured on-tap at the brewpub and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, pale, straw color with a filmy, clingy, frothy white head. Nose of toasted grains, cream sweetness, with floral and honey highlights. Flavors are smooth and crisp, with a honey and floral hops forward character balanced on a creamy backbone. Peppery spice at the end of the palate, with a crisp, slightly bitter and dry aftertaste. Crisp, clean finish. Very easy drinker.

On tap at the source

Golden with a near brilliant clarity and solid sheet of bone whites. Smells like a nice kolsch: corn, grain, soft floral character and a nice hint of grass. Taste follows through well with a solid grain bed, some flowers, some nice bitterness to dry it up a bit as the slight sweetness rolls over the tongue. Medium and maybe even a little full for the style with soft carb and a wet finish. A nice beer, wish they'd not call it a golden on their menu, because it doesn't really fit that categorically IMO.

Poured in the CBC Beergarden during the 24th Anniversary.

The initial pour produced half-of-the-glass head. The bartender repeatedly added to the liquid. Spotty lace. Straw color and clear.

Mild aroma but with a pleasant blend of malt/hop. Lots of raw grain and straw.

An excellently blended beer. Pale malt is dominant, but there's enough bitterness to give this balance. In the background, I detect citrus flavors. In the swallow, I note fresh blackberries and banana. The aftertaste is short with notes of black pepper. The mouthfeel is superior: It's rich, almost chewy, with a below average level of carbonation--unusual even for a Kölsch.

First beer on draft I am having at CBC

A- a straw yellow body with mild carbonation. Not much lacing

S- very grainy with a sweet corn scent that I like to look for in this style. Not massive but still there

T- good sweet flavor that is very refreshing. Even a swig of bitterness at the end

M- carbonated and solid with flavor

O- a very refreshing kolsch that I am excited about for kicking off this meal
