Having on-tap at the Sacseheim. Served in a 1/2 litre mug, this beer draws a clear, medium golden color with lots of streams of little bubbles fairly rapidly and continuously rising to the beer’s surface and a nice white head an inch thick when first drawn and served. Settles to a very thick ring lining the inside of the glass along with big cluster swirls of a film layer of foam and good lacing. Aromas of some grainy, bready, herbal malts with a slight bit of wheat and some light hops. The taste is pretty much the same, with bready, slightly grainy and herbal malts along with a bit of wheat and some citrus hops that give a bit of bitterness. Well balanced flavor profile overall. Has a fairly crisp, yet smooth and slightly frothy, medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish and crisp aftertaste. A very refreshing beer on this hot summer day, and spot on for the style.

L- foamy two inch whitish head. Bright Holden coloured

S - delicious looking- light, flowery hoppiness , with a tiny sweetish malt background

T - balanced, tasty - a slight spicy hop bite hits you first, then quickly turns into a pleasantly sweet note followed by another small spicy hop.

F - refreshing - slightly light but still somewhat creamy with a teeny carbonated evervescence rolling over the tongue

O - Great beer! I want this in a 12 ounce can and then in 12 packs. This is a tasty yet refreshing brew that will go great with any food. This could be a daily go to beer. Outstanding!

On tap at a german restaurant in DC. Paired pretty well with a hot summer day and some pretzels.

Very crisp and refreshing, with notes of lemon, grass and bread.

Probably the most solid kolsch out there. Exactly what you would expect. Light with hints of wheat, adjuncts, hay, lemon and on the finish what I can best describe as a dash of white grape.

I am a huge fan of the lighter colored beers, and I was at my local German deli that sells imported beers from Germany and thought I would give it a try. It was very lightly colored and extremely smooth. Little hint of bitterness in the after-taste. I thought it was delicious and was not a very pungent smelling beer - at least not to me. I think I might have found my new favorite beer. I only wish the abv was a tad higher. Overall, definitely a good beer to give a try and it was not too expensive for a pint.

L-One and a half to two fingered head is present at first and it slightly dissipates after. The body is extremely light and see through. Straw gold in color.
S-Slight malt, slight grain Very grape-y with a slight hop presence.
T- Very fresh, a bit fruity with the grape, and a slight bitterness with the hop. Altogether refreshing beer. Reminds me of a pilsner with a little complexity.
F-Extremely refreshing!
O-Perfect rendition of the style. Refreshing, soft, grape-wine essence. Such a treat to drink. The first time I had this beer I was on a summer hike through the foothills of the appalchians with a great friend. This beer reminds me of summer and good times. It is extremely well crafted and always refreshing.
