COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cali Colsch is a continental mash-up. We ferment California grown base malt with Kolsch yeast from Cologne, Germany. The malt shines through with hints of wheat and fresh barley. The yeast adds levels of complexity and notes of peach and pear, similar to the finish of a white wine. American and European noble hops give our beer an assertive hop character while still keeping it drinkable. A sessionable beer to enjoy in sun or shade alike. Pair with light or creamy cheese, fruits and salad, chicken or seafood.

22 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget in Woodland, CA. The aroma has corn, DMS, and some boiled veggies. A little floral, not much else. Mild to moderately hazy dark yellow body with a small, off-yellow head present. This starts extremely carbonated, before a little bread comes through in the middle. Finishes with an overly hoppy, dry, bitter grassy finish. There’s really not much about this that reminds me of a Kolsch. It’s a mess.

Subtle sweet notes of apples are the first thing I notice when tasting this beer. It is light and refreshing. I'm a big fan of calicraft. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap - tasting at Willows. Pours clear light amber with a small white head and decent lacing. Aroma is typical but fresh with notes of grain, honey, grass, fruit. Flavor is a little sweet, light bitter, refreshing. Light body, bubbly carbonation, tiny bit of a metallic aftertaste.

Very lacking in taste and similar to Keystone Light or repackaged Pabst Blue Ribbon. I was thouroughly unimpressed by this Calicraft product. I was also wondering how yeast imported from Germany is classified as "Locally Sourced" to a California Brewery.
