Editor’s Note: Previously known as Yellowtail Pale Ale

It is made very much like a pilsner, except that it is fermented at warm temperatures with ale yeast. It is then lagered like a pilsner. It tastes very much like a pils, except for the subdued fruitiness of the ale yeast, the tang of the wheat (in some), and the lack of lager-like sulfur aromas.

So where can you taste a Kolsch? There are no Kolsches being imported into the United States. So you could fly to Cologne. A better idea is to come to Ballast Point Brewing Company and try our Yellowtail Pale Ale Kolsch. We make it with 5% Wheat, finish hop it with Liberty and Tettnanger hops, and ferment it with a yeast we borrowed from a brewery in Cologne. So come on in and enjoy a taste of the Rhineland!!

Terminus (3250) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 17, 2005
bottle-pours bright orange with a small white head around the rim of my glass. herbal, grainy slightly spicy aroma with some fruitiness from the yeast character. flavors have a tea-like component. slightly grainy notes in mid palate with a light dry hop finish of german hops. body is pretty good for this style. lots of malt grain tones in the finsh as well. I think this is pretty good! Are TAR and I the only ones that like this beer?

not a bad beer by any means, just not really a great beer. perfect for someone who has never really tried anything outside of the "coors, mgd, bud" range. Very pale yellow in color with no strong/stand out tastes to speak of.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Corn muffin-like aroma. Poured a transparent pale (urine color to be exact) yellow. Tiny head. Crisp, low carbonation with a touch of malt sweetness in the finish. Very lifeless beer.

bottle, thanks to either foolish_mortal or darkelf. i kind of expected this to be a pale ale of some sort, so it was a bit of a letdown when it was an exceedingly clean and light ale. corn-like and malt notes with pilsner-esque aromas, decent summer brew, nothing to get excited unless you’re just finishing up mowing the lawn.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Draft. Amber beer with a nice white head. Faint malt/hop aroma. Malt flavor comes through (somewhat bready). Low hop bitterness, and what there is shows up as grassy and citrus.
