Strangebrewer (790) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
bottle. Poured pale straw coloured with an initially large white head that settles down, some sediment present with the pour. Light malty aroma, a bit corny. Creamy mouthfeel, light prickly carbonation, finishes clean. Pale malty base, grainy with a touch of yeast. Not bad, light and refreshing

UncleKorm (643) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Bottle poured clear light yellow hue w/ huge creamy white fully lasting head. Mild aroma of straw. Initial flavor light acidic and light bitter finish. Tastes are lemon, bread, and soap. Light bodied, watery texture, lively carbonation and metallic feel to the finish.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Clear yellow color with a slight orange hue. Very mild aroma with a little lemon peel. Overall, crisp and clean. Little bit of a bite on the finish but a good kolsch overall.

Maverick34 (2040) - New York, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Draft from blue smoke. Pours a clearish but not shiny gold. A bit of a floral aroma. Taste is clean and kolschy. One of the better american kolsches.

Braudog (5485) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Shared pint at the brewery. This is aptly named -- I don’t believe I’ve seen too many beers this light at a craft brewer. Super light yellow. Barely anything to this beer to speak of, it’s a bit TOO light to stand up to the beautiful style of Cologne. (#3805, 1/23/2010)

On tap The Ginger Man NY
Appearance: crystal clear golden ale with mid top, fine creamy fizz in centre.3-
Nose: sweet front, grainy feel, bit thin lacking further development.
Flavor/Palate : soft front, citric sourness, wheat like softness with little of follow-up. Forgettable finish. Failed attempt of Kolsch.

BREWMUSKCLES (2154) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 10, 2009
i like this kolsch. it has complex flavors (THOUGH LITE) and it is refreshing low in calories and still somewhat flavorful and with a decent body. TOUCH OF DISHWATER AND FRUIT FLAVORS THAT WEAVE IN AND OUT A TOUCH OF BANANA AND A WHEATY COMPOSURE WITH ACCOMPANYING SPICE. it was worked thru and i think somewhat succesful. nice palate that is chalky and still refreshingly slick in the mid palate. the carbonation works here.

puzzl (3235) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2009
Tap at Pacific Standard. Not really a Kolsch, but not a bad lager, really. Piss yellow pour, clear, with little head. Light but doughy, with pie crust and lockerroom in the aroma. Almond cookie flavor, clean and simple, but rather full bodied. Not too bad.
