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.

Braudog (5583) - Hampton, Virginia, 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)

Clear very pale body with a small white head. The nose is honey, bread and herbs. The flavor is honey, herbs, flowers, light pepper and dough. Medium/light body is soft with light carbonation. Probably the best Appalachian beer of the night.

WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Draft at the brewery. Like their lager, this was nice for its type. Crystal clear gold, small head, surprisingly good lacing, more like a cask than a keg in mouth and appearance. Not much happening in the nose. Taste has grassy notes, a little pale malt, a little hoppy bitterness, in good balance. Long bitter finish.

hazy yellow, borderline cloudy. Aroma is sweet grain. Flavor is grass, hay, slight wheatiness even. Light bodied but flavorful. An excellent kolsch.

LinusStick (2817) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2010
A delicious and refreshing kolsch. Suffers from what the style usually suffers from, though. Aroma was pretty weak. Some light cologne and hints of light malt. Pour was a nice light gold with a 2 finger white head. Taste was average. There was a hint of lemon, wheat and yeast but it was all very faint. The strong carbonation prohibited most of the flavors from taking over. Great summer beer, though

Had it at Harrisburg on tap. Lighter color and a slightly hoppy aroma. Tastes similar to a pale ale with less hops.
