Kolsch, the clean and refreshing beer style of Cologne, Germany, quenches summertime thirst. This pale golden ale with a lightly fruity aroma is cold-conditioned or lagered after its primary fermentation. More simply, our Summertime uses only the finest malts and German hops to create the perfect beer for hot Summer days and warm Summer nights.

Notes of Grape Nuts cereal (without the crunch) , lemon and spicy with a clean finish. Light and lively in the mouth. A good light pale ale. The second glass won me over.

Solid all around beer for an easy drinker. Their Four Star Pils is a better summer sipper though I highly recommend that, especially for the price.

I haven’t had more than about a handful of Kolsch’s, but would say this is about average for the style. Flavor is ok. Balance is ok. This style seems like a less malty version of a pilsner. Has a clear gold appearance with a light white head. It’s ok for summer time, but nothing to write home about.

Bottle. Clear yellow and small white heading. Fresh aroma of malt, grass, cereal and lemon rind. Flavor is on par. Light body with some bitterness. Reminds me of the Caribbean. Boo yah.

Had this from the bottle. Light nose and color but good hops and malt blend while still light in the mouth. 5.1% alcohol but still seems lighter. IBU of 20 leaves a little bitterness on the finish from the German hops. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Color is light gold. Aroma is light with a hint of sour hops. Taste is slightly bitter hops with smooth malt hints. Nice and refreshing. Good for summer. Simple. Mouth feel is nice. Could smash many of these on a hot day. *12 oz bottle ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

agree w porkchop, seems like a touch of rye in here, or spicy hops that mimic rye qualities. Decent kolsch but definitely Americanized. Crisp and clean.
