Kulmbacher Edelherb Premium Pils

On tap at Taco Mac midtown, Atlanta, GA, USA. $6.00 for the 16oz pour. Macro, pale yellow pour with plenty of clarity and carbonation but a lack of head and lace. Disappointing look to the beer. To be honest a dreadful disappointment. Lacks Saaz bite, cleanliness, and general refreshing qualities. I am beginning to wonder if TM has put a macro beer on tap instead of the advertised! Plenty of vegetable notes and corn finish. Not good at all. Bad value and a pretty poor beer - lacked Pils...

Kulmbacher Reichelbrau Eisbock

Good grief. I think I got really lucky here. Picked this up as a 12 oz single. On the label it has "Mindestens haltbar bis: 22.10.04" which is obvioulsy a reference to October of 2004 either as a bottled on, or best before date. It matters not, since this beer has aged beautifully. Dark, Porter like, noisy pour which tells me that this beer is going to be class. Brown with some light orange highlights. Large head that fades quickly to leave little or no lacing on the glass but a small, spotty...

Kapuziner Schwarz-Weizen

$2.69, Cheers, Carrollton, GA, USA. 500 mL bottle. In the store, at first glance this looks like it is probably a Schwarzbier but closer inspection of the label reveals it is indeed a Dunkel. Excellent appearance with the requisite dark, cloudy body and a huge head. Poured into the Tucher Weizen 0.5L glass this looks very good. Aroma is very rich in bananas. Tastes reveal mild bananas and some mild carbonation. Mouthfeel is a little thin for my liking, and this is the weakest point of the...

EKU 28

12 oz single at Liquor Barn, Lexington, KY, USA. $1.70. Initially a nice head with the aggressive pour, but of course this is quickly lost to absolutely nothing because of the ABV. Good legs come with the alcohol. Color is a beautiful, roasted tawny, deep color. Massive alcohol sherry notes in the nose - delicious. Tastes are obviously huge alcoholic caramalized malts and not much else. Having said that it is very drinkable and easy to consume despite the fact that sipping at the end of the...

Kapuziner Weissbier

$2.29 Smyrna Beverage, Smyrna, GA, USA. Poured into the Southampton Weizen glass, this is picture-book perfect. The head is that oft searched for but seldom found, deep, dense three inches of smoothed out ice-cream dolloped, thick clotted cream foam - perfect. This sits on top of the butterscotch body. Aroma is typical Hefe, but somewhat muted - not strong. The tastes kind of reflect that too. Banana and clove in there as expected, but we do not get the strong presence of either that the...
