COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Kölsch-styled ale is clean, crisp, and delicately balanced. It has very subtle pear flavors and aromas. The subdued maltiness leads to a pleasantly refreshing finish. A fantastic summer brew! The Kölner Dom (Cologne Cathedral), is one of the best-known architectural monuments in Germany and has been Cologne’s most famous landmark since its completion in the late 19th century. True Kölsch can only be brewed if the brewery has a view of this famous cathedral, thus its’ appearance on our tap markers.

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Gettysburg. Clear copper yellow color. Simple corn and sour, soggy grain flavor... slightly earthy as well. Dusty and grainy at times. Like sour corn husks. Faint nose, almost aroma-less. Simple, coarse but almost crisp... strongly flavored but not very tasty at all.

DocLock (7912) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Draft at ABC Collegeville. Pours clear light gold with white head. Nose was pale malt, mild hops, butterscotch. Tasted of pale malt, mild hops, and a definite buttery flavor and finish. I hope this is not a trend, as the last 3-4 new beers here have been terrible.
Earlier Rating: 9/4/2008 Total Score: 3.2
Poured deep gold with creeamy white head. Nose was grainy pale malt, mild hopcitrus, mild fruit. Tastes crisp, not hefty of palate, with fruity, lemongrassy hopcitric, and bready pale malt flavors, with decent balance. A good example of this style.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Draft pint at the Gettysburg brewpub. Awesome name and logo, from an old Koeln guy. If you don’t get it, you shouldn’t be drinking Koelsch. Golden orange with a thin but somewhat gluey head. Virtually no aroma. Crisp, clean and biscuity-malty with a nice flowery flourish to it. Quite reminiscent of the days in Koeln. Nicely done! (#3011, 7/6/2007)

[Collegeville] Golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of butter, diactyl, toast, grass, light citrus. Taste of toaste, light toffee, faint bitterness, more diactyl in the finish.

Nate (3740) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Very mild pilsner malt aroma with a bit of mild fruity hop character. Golden amber clear with thin head. Medium body with medium-light carbonation. Starts sweet with some corn and DMS. A bit watery. Not very crisp. Decent flavor but not really reminiscent of a kölsch.
