StueyD (1441) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
A slightly hazy pale golden coloured beer with a weak white head. A light malt aroma, slightly spicy and a hint of oily hop. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with the oily hop element, grassy and piney, a touch of citrus fruit and a background biscuity malt flavour that leaves a smoother taste in the finish. Draught at The Beer Authority, New York.

Draft at the brewery, 7/12/15
Quite surprised I’d never rated this one. Clean, malty aroma. Some bread and yeast notes. A bit of caramel, and German hops. Clear gold with a white head. Crisp, but maybe a hint less clean than it could have been. Still, very solid.

Neben dem leichten Hopfenaroma erkennt man deutlich die für Kölsch typischen Schwefelverbindungen. Geschmack ebenfalls Sorten typisch. Ich bin kein großer Kölsch-Fan...

Hell, leicht trüb. Geruch vor allem nach kräuterigen Hopfen. Im Geschmack dann recht trocken, leicht malzig, leicht bitter. Dazu ein bisschen fruchtig. Top.

ARH (831) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2015
On tap poured into a shaker. the aroma as a bit of a stone / mineral quality to it with hints of grass and an even lighter apricot juicy sweetness hidden in there. It pours a clear, effervescent pale yellow with a foamy white head that has decent retention and lace. The taste is a medium bitter with slightly less sweetness. The texture is thin and zippy with a bit of a slick wax quality to it. The light body is flavored with mineral water, bitter spice and fruit, and a hint of grass that strengthens during the crisp dry finish that’s acidic and a hint of spice. The aftertaste is that of mineral water and muffin dough with a hint of wax that is mellow, but has a moderate length to it.

On tap at Khyber pass pub. Maybe underwhelmed due to recently trying CBS. Yellow color, small head. Slight hops, yeast,grass. Ok.

I’m not a fan of the style, but for the style, I think it’s quite nice. Pretty much as others have described, reminds me quite a bit of a pils.

Brewfoolery (33) - California, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Pours a gold pale with modest head that quickly fades. Aroma has little Pils or sweetness. Slight yeasty, bready nose. Medium mouthfeel with clear noble hop bitterness in the foreground. Fades slightly with lingering bite aftertaste.

alobar (3101) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Pours a clear straw yellow color with aroma of grass, lemon, and yeast. Lemon, grass, and yeast flavor. Easy drinker and quite flavorful for a kolsch.

probstblueribbon (3300) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Light golden with lots of fine floaters and a lacy bright white head. Aroma: Appropriately subtle graininess, fruitiness, with a woodsy character, faintly herbal and a touch of diacetyl. Palate: Medium body, relaxed carbonation. Flav.: Subtle like the nose with similar flavours, still has some diacetyl (unfortunate); dry with gentle bitterness and a grainy malt finish.

I’m surprised to detect diacetyl from this brewer...otherwise, a decent Koelsch.
