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.

This beer has a slightly cloudy golden color with a little bit of white head. It has a slightly sweet taste and is much better than many kolsch style beers I have tried. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frech pils-like aroma. Poured deep golden in color. Much like a lilsner plus a light citrus edge. Notes: GABF

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Sampled on tap at Church Key DC 10/22/09: Pours a hazy orange bronze with a frothy, clingy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet biscuity malts with a touch of grassy hops and lemon. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with some light toasty malty sweetness and earthy bittering hops with some citric tart balance before a slightly drier and smooth finish. A pretty decent Kölsch, but would be better with more floral character and less tartness.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Hazy golden pour. The nose is very clear with a kiss of light crackery graininess. A bit of straw and a kiss of light fruit. The beer itself is really quite dry and fresh tasting. There is very little in the way of hop aroma or flavour. Warming brings up a touch more soft pear estery character. Seemingly flawless.

gsmitty80 (1791) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Very pale yellow, with a nice but quickly diminishing head. Smelled very sweet. Smooth and nice kolsch which stays true to the style. Very clean, crisp and refreshing.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Draught at The Bear. Almost opaque orange with a medium head. Mild pale malt and fruitiness in the aroma. The flavor is light and dry on the malt with mild hops that are hardly noticeable. Light bodied with medium carbonation. More like a boring golden ale, but not really bad, just not a good kolsch.
