COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Burnside Lime Kolsch is brewed as a German style Kolsch made with premium pilsner malt and a touch of wheat and Munich malts. We then add Tettnanger hops, and ferment with the German ale yeast at 59 degrees to create a crisp, dry, and thirst quenching beer. Then the Burnside twist; we hand zested 200 limes, steeped a pound of Kaffir Lime leaf in the kettle, and added lemongrass to the bright tank. The result, a highly drinkable summer ale with hints of exotic ingredients from the east. Drink it with a lime!

On tap, served with a lime. Smells like a corona with a lime in it. Crisp and clean, drinks like a summer lager, very refreshing and easy going.

Poured a light yellow color. Had more ginger taste to it than lime. The kolsch base was good and it was really quite drinkable. Just wish there was more lime to it.

Lagerboy (1171) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
Bomber. Unclear pale yellow, creamy pillow of white head settles and lasts. Aroma of lime, lemongrass and muted Pilsen malt. Taste is lemongrassy, lime forward, backseat lager malts, some spice and floral notes. Lively carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Nice enough hot day beer. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Lime and lemon grass, mild grain, perhaps a little cloroxy. Golden pour, mild haze, white head. Flavors of lime and lemon, mild bread and grain, more leafy lime and herbal lemongrass. LIngering citrus finish, natural but at the same time I can see how it can become a little solventy in large portions. Like craft Tequiza.

Bottle from unknown. Pours a slightly hazy golden color, decent amount of off white fluffy head. Aroma biscuity, some lime and keffir, but not much. Body full and and arch, but finish is a bit slippery, very complex lime making itself slowly known gradually, really nice. Not sure why the ratings are so low.

A nice and very refreshing beer! Pours an ugly yellow, but smells great, like lime. Lime and wheat in the taste. Great for a hot day. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle:   Vibrant straw, clear, light sudsy white head, little lacing.   Strong floral aroma, a little medicinal, and I hate to say it, some urinal cake.   Definite Lime tho!   Seems artificial in it aroma, however. Thankfully on the tongue its more Lime Leaf than the aromatic/floral lime.   Soft body, smooth, and very lime like on the finish.   The aroma is a bit deceiving in that its real artificial, but on the tongue its a bit more neutral and real.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Soft lime like finish.   Tiz okay, but the nose detracts too much.

Beese (1463) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Draft at Burnside Brewing in Portland, OR on 29 May 2013. Poured a lightly hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Floral hop aroma with lime zest and lemon grass. Lime flavours at the forward with citrus hop and bready malt notes. Palate is quite watery with a chemically edge and soda water element.
