COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This lager like ale is modeled after the official beer of Köln, Germany. Kolsch is delicate and refreshing with a slight fruitiness and supportive, yet unobtrusive hop bitterness

3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2006
First taste is buttered infection, giving way to a corn and tin flavor with light grassy notes. The color is extra pale yellow. The nose is almost strictly diacetyl. Overall a very poor kolsch, and a very poor beer also. Silky and buttery palate. While "true" kolsch is nothing to get excited about, this one is really nothing close to true kolsch. Sampled at Capitol City in Baltimore.

A very pale yellow with a bone white head. the aroma is lightly hoppy, almost minty. The flavor has a crisp dry maltiness and a good tingly hop finish. This is a pretty tasty little starter beer.

Very weak! Almost colorless with very little aroma and a dirty water aftertaste. Good thing it was part of a sampler so I only had to suffer through a few oz.

This one exceeded my expectations. Nice light golden color with excellent lacing. Very smooth with a light grassy and floral hoppy presence that was super well balanced with the malty base. Very drinkable.

"Okay i had only had one of this style before and wasn’t a fan, this one however changed my mind. Poured a golden color with perfect lacing. Grassy and floral hops solid beer"
