Crisply clean kolsch stays dry as zesty lemony orange spritz picks up raw grained barnyard acridity and celery watered snip (and mild dried cherry spec) over its white breaded base.
On tap at Ambulance, crisply clean kolsch capitulates champagne-sparkled green grape esters, musty green apple tartness and grassy hop astringency to dry mineral grain musk, gaining a slight raw-honeyed bittering.
On tap at Kitchen & Beer Bar, raw-honeyed champagne-splashed kolsch malting kicks back while sour lemon fizz contrasts sweet doughy breading.
On tap at Ambulance, brisk lemon-candied tartness and musty green grape esters fade into subdued white breaded pilsner malting as penetrative oily hop bittering lingers.
Off-dry pale yellowed moderation placates brisk lemon wedging with peppery lemongrass spicing over soft white bread base.
Easygoing dry light body brings lemon-oiled Saaz/Perle hop herbage to French breaded wheaty pilsner malting, picking up slight skunked grassiness. Better than decent.
On tap at Growler & Gill, white winey Nelson Sauvin hops redirect wavering kolsch variant as green grape, gooseberry and guava tartness upends moderate lemon pith bittering, herbal white peppering and mild green tea sneak. Mineral grained pilsner malts and dry rye breading placate dextrin starching. Offbeat.
Somewhat peculiar stylistic variant, part of Reverie’s rotating fruited kolsch series, lets zestful limey raspberry spritz take on questionable botanical cologne musk, clean celery crisping and cucumber-watered watermelon rind snip over thicker than expected honeyed malt bottom.
Showing more depth and sour fruiting than typical kolsch styling, green grape tannins, lemon pith bittering and moldy orange mustiness receive champagne sparkle over grainy pilsner malts. Musky hop oiled phenols, dried grassiness and slight herbage pick up cucumber watering.
On tap at Taphouse 15, dry straw-yellowed light body stays too subtle as slightly soured champagne-sparkled green grape tannins seep into grassy hop stead at washed-out pilsner malt base. Suited to mellower sessionable thirsts.
On tap at Plank Pizza, soft-tongued moderation stays sturdy as sour lemon musk infiltrates grassy meadow and dried maize stead, picking up slight herbage. An above average New Jersey Devils inspired brew.
On tap at Ambulance, dry lemon spritz and recessive gooseberry-passionfruit salting reach peaty mineral grained earthen bottom. A tad unconventional for a simple pilsner-malted kolsch due to slightly sourer fruiting.
