COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light, pleasing ale made especially for a hot summer’s day, this beer is brewed in the traditional German kolsch style. A touch of wheat gives the brew a creamy body, and a German Hersbrucker hops add a mellow flavor to the finish. The Golden goes well with the Chicken Caesar or the Artichoke Mushroom Linguini.

AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2003
Light golden color, very clear, with a thin head that diminished quickly, and a mild hop aroma. Decent for a light ale, but nothing to get excited about.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Slightly estery nose with little cereal aroma. Transluscent golden with rocky white head. Strong breadiness followed by crisp finish. Light on body with bubbly carbonation. A truly enjoyable blonde.

Peach color. Clingy white head. Light fruity aroma. Medium body. Light stone fruit flavor. Like a fruity kolsch. Really refreshing.

boFNjackson (4124) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom... Poured a very kolsch looking, hazy, pale golden with a thick white head, nice retention. Light, cracker malt and grassy, hop aroma. Thin palate with a dry presence. Light and easy drinking with an earthy, honey, tea-like sweetness. Dry, clean finish. I think this is very underrated here,

anders37 (16537) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. Has a malty hoppy aroma. Crisp swetish malty hoppy flavor with some hints of caramel. Has a sweetish malty finish with some hoppy hints in the aftertaste.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Pale gold with a smooth white head. I thought this was one of their better done beers, fairly hoppy golden with a crisp and softly spicy hop finish. Not a whole lot to this, but a nice golden.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2008
On tap at Brewery--Thin dull straw body with a rich white head. Cereal malt caramel nose and body. Clean and sessionable, but nothing whatsoever to write home about. I’d still drink this puppy most any day.

Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2008
Draft. A hazy orangey beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty - a quite light aroma. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and a light touch of fruit, leading to a slightly bitter finish. Boring.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Crisp and clean, and slightly generic, but not really a Kolsch to me. Spicy herbal hoppiness, with a touch of honey sweet maltiness. Really light and clean, a good opening beer.
