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

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Draft on the Hill. Pale gold with tight white head. Grainy and nutty beer aromatically, very fresh bready flavor, light and refreshing. Quaffable quencher, not bad at all.

Kolsch? Are you kidding me? This isn’t even close, and the name is an insult to the style. I can *still* taste the lingering metal finish even though this has been out of my mouth for two weeks. Like biting aluminum foil or licking a 9-volt battery. A pissy, corny disaster.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2008
Tap. Very pale straw coloured brew. Aroma is quite grainy initially with mostly pils malt. There is a very light floral character, but this is mostly a limpid BMC substitute. Meh.

KUEric (884) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Above average kolsch. A little bitter, a little grassy, a little toasty. Some yeast aromas. An average appearence.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Pours yellow with a fizzy white head. Smells perfumy with some toasty hints. Tastes crisp and dry with a hint of fruitiness on the finish. Solid!

kidmartinek (3303) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Pours pale yellow, clear, small white head and good lacing. Exhibits excellent natural carbonation. Aroma of light bready yeast and hops. Crisp taste that’s a little sweet and sour. Taste is pretty bitter too. Mouthfeel is lively and medium/full... surprising for a kolsch style beer. Finish is clean and a bit malty compared to the taste of this beer. Overall a refreshing light full beer.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 24, 2008
Draft at the brewpub (downtown location). Poured a clear pale gold color. Head was thin and white. Aroma was of biscuity malt, honey, sweet cream, and light grassy hops. Fairly sweet and light bodied with fresh cereal grain, caramel, and light flowery hop flavors. Pretty tasty, light, and refreshing, but maybe a bit on the sweet side.

TheEpeeist (3175) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2008
On tap at Capitol Hill. Clear straw with a white head. Nose is yeasty, a touch sweet. Brisk and lemony; pastry dough. Nice.

Light golden color, with a slight fruity after taste. Very refreshing, my first Kolsch and I really enjoyed.

badnloose (111) - North Hollywood, California, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Tap @ Shirlington. Good-looking yellow pour. Slight acidic aroma masked by lighter fruit scents. A little too lightly hopped? Still, the finish is just as a Kölsch should be; nice and refreshing.
