Brewed with malt and yeast from Cologne, Germany, this hybrid ale is slightly fruity like an ale, but fermented and cold conditioned like a lager.

Draft at the bear piss lounge. Nose is fruity like a urinal cake. Taste isn’t much better. Wow. Just not good.

bhensonb (10736) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Aroma is a bit fruit backed by bread. Near med body. Flavor is enough citrus and fruit to mostly cover up the malt. Drinks more tasty than many of the style.

Had on draft at the brewery. Bready malts, fruity, slight orange, floral, soft and delicate.

bb (6784) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Draft. Golden beer with a whitish head. Light malt aroma. Spice and malt flavor with light hay, light grass, and light lemon. Medium bodied. Spice and hay linger with light malt, light grass, and light lemon.

rayOfBeer (659) - El Cerrito, California, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Tap: slight haze on a light-yellow pour small white head. Aroma is very pilsener-like with light grass, light bisquit and small whiff of lemon. Flavor is much the same with grass, bisquit, a light lemon grass and a high carbonation tang. This beer seems more pilsener than kolsch, except for the slight tartness, still nice flavors and good drinking.

joeneugs (3118) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 27, 2013
On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours a nice golden color with a white head. The aroma has some nice fresh grains, a little bread and lemongrass, floral and orange hops. The flavor is crisp and bready with lemon and orange hop character in the flavor and a bit more noble spicy bitterness in the finish. Great light yet creamy mouthfeel. A stellar American style Kolsch.

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Clear golden pour with a fluffy white head. Grassy hops, fruity esters, and a grainy sweetness. Notes of bread, straw, and yeast. Kind of a "dirty" flavor, not really clean like I’d hope for from a kolsch. Grape and apple esters, grassy hops, yeast, and grain. Mild bread, some straw, and a light tartness on the finish. Disappointing.

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2013
On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. I'm not going to pretend to be familiar with the style. I'm also not going to pretend I was in love with this beer. Definitely an interesting fruity blend, but nothing to write home about.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Sampler at the brewery. Golden pour. Sweet aroma of mild citrus and grass. Flavor is similar. Solid example of the style.

On tap at Capone’s. Poured a golden color with a small sized head. Some citrus and grassiness.
