On tap at The Owl House in Rochester, NY.

Pours a clear golden yellow, with a quarter inch fizzy head, and a little bit of lacing down the glass.

Smells slightly grassy, a bit of hay, and some indistinct sweet fruitiness.

The taste is similar. Slightly bready, with a touch of fruity yeast flavors, some light green apple, some grassy hops, and a slight metallic kick.

Light bodied, crisp, clean lager mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Very drinkable.

This is a classic Kolsch, and required drinking for anybody interested in the style.

500 ml bottle poured into a pint glass

A- Clear golden straw body, with some very active carbonation. Bubbly white head. Poor retention, but still looks decent.

S- Pale malt, a bit of staleness. A bit of a fruity nose as well.

T- Crisp malt, not stale one bit, a bit of a fruity tang.

M- Light body. Only a little drying. Pretty clean.

O- Good, clean, and crisp.

On tap at the 2013 Atlanta German Bierfest

Clear light gold with plenty of rising carbonation bubbles. Topped by a proportionate and very durable head.
Appealing but very light aroma with hops and light malt in balance. More hop presence in tasting.
Light body with medium carbonation.

O: Good representative of this very mild style beer.

A: Clear, pale gold, with every rising bubble (and there are many of them) visible. Head is nearly white, 3 fingers high, and tenacious; lacing is good.

S: Freshly milled grain dominates. Also hay, a faint whiff of apple, and a hint of pepper.

T: Grain flavors are strong, malty sweetness is not. There's a little fruity tartness in the middle, and clean, bitter hops in the finish, but grain is the star.

M: Dry and crisp, but very refreshing. This ones almost too easy to drink.

O: The very epitome of a German session beer. Not my favorite style, but a fine example of the style nonetheless.

Bottle to Boddington's tulip pint glass.

A- 3-4, clear yellow. White, foamy, quickly-receding though lasting head w/some lacing.

S- Grainy/yeasty malt smell w/underlying fruity sweetness. Subtle.

T- Dry, grainy, smooth malt flavor. Underlying sweetness comes through, especially in the finish. Occasional astringency. Refreshing.

M & O- Moderately high carbonation. Initially dry & somewhat flat w/sweet finish. Very well balanced. I want more!
