A white beer brewed with additions of oats, honey, and molasses. “Zins Jo Kokot!” is a cry that celebrates a local tradition in Cottbus, Brandenburg, where the Kotbusser style originates

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle, Oktoberfest 2012 mix pack. Thanks Kristi! Medium to light yellow, good sized white head. Light grassy, yeasty, floral, sweet aroma. Taste is light, refreshing wheat with a nice sweetness and some rather interesting spice notes. A very solid drinkable beer with a lot of flavour.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
600 ml bottle. Pours a clear straw with a nice, resilient white head. Smell is sugar, molasses, herbal hops. Taste is VERY salty, sweet (molasses, honey), malted wheat, oatmeal. Finish is herbal hops, quite dry. Some salt. Medium to thick body, soft, oatish mouthfeel. Good. Not fabulous. Wouldn’t recommend it to a non-connoisseur, as it is quite the unexpected experience.

GregClow (3215) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Slightly hazy light golden body with a finger of thick and creamy white foam that sticks around for most of the glass. Aroma is pleasant - some lightly toasted wheat, sweet grass, orange blossom honey, and a hint of yeast. Good body, crisp but also a bit creamy. Flavour is light and elegant, with the notes suggested by the flavour, along with a squeeze of citrus and a subtle herbal tone to finish. Understated but impressive.

shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
600 mL bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a firm white head. Aroma is honey, chamomile and golden syrup, light molasses. Apricot and apple. High carbonation with a creamy mouth feel. Very interesting, would be a lively match for cheesecake or a cheese plate.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
2012-10-08. Crisp dark yellow body with a nice white head and lace. 3+ Fairly clean flavour, mild bitterness, mild fruity character is interesting, pale malt has just a hint of biscuity bready notes. 6+ Aroma is similar, mild fruit, hints at lemon and mild malt. Average plus bodied palate. A bit too mild overall for my preference but enjoyable and very quaffable. On tap at Brewmarket, Brick Works, Toronto

This is my 2500th Canadian rating at the time of entering!

blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle [600ml]. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with a large mostly-lasting fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet fruit, light spices, honey, yeast and some light herbal notes -- aroma is mild but nice. Flavour of citrus, yeast and light hops along with some honey and mild spices. Decently bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. This is a nice surprise and underrated in my opinion, I quite enjoyed this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jool (198) - - APR 7, 2013
Bouteille 600mL. Blonde translucide. Nez légèrement sucré, houblon subtile. Bouche me rappelant une pilsner avec un côté sucré, mielleux, caramel très léger et un brin d'amertume. Rien de spécial.

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2012
A golden ale with a thick off white head. In aroma, a sweet caramel malt with German hops and light mineral notes. In mouth, a nice crisp malt with mineral notes, kolsch-like, nice. Cask at Beau’s Oktoberfest Sept 29 2012.
