Bottle. Pours fizzy and dark gold with a medium fizzy off-white head. Aromas of grass, hay, and some odd plastic notes. Sweet flavor; raisin, fruit, and caramels, with some light bitterness. Average, but fairly refreshing. [1070]

RoyalFlushing (322) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Clear golden with small white head, active carbonation, and minimal lacing. Aroma includes grass, toast, and a hint of lemon zest. Taste is similar, predominantly malt with notes of honey, black pepper, and citrus. Very drinkable and refreshing with bubbly carbonation that is enjoyable in the mouth.

davey101 (679) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 25, 2012
12 oz bottle into a tall pilsner glass. Date unknown, but it has the newer style logo cap AND its the first time I’ve seen six packs in CT so I assume its on the fresher side of things. A - Crystal clear dark straw yellow body with rising carbonation. Bone white three finger head forms and sizzles down to a nice one finger high head with large bubbles. Moderate amount of lacing and retention. S - Very spicy. Coriander, lemons, grass, bubble gum, and some floral qualities. Earthy with a bit of a dough like finish. T - Really transcends the line between sweet and spice. It goes back and forth between honey, cracker malts, peppercorn, coriander, bubble gum, and fruity hops. Crazy delicious and easy drinking. Medium to light mouth feel with just the right amount of crisp carbonation. O - I wasn’t expecting to be blown away by this one, but I kind of was. Extremely delicious hot weather beer full of flavor. I’m a noob to the kolsch style, but this is a winner in my book. So glad to have this in six pack format.

Early afternoon imperial pint from Mugs Alehouse in Brooklyn. Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Crisp hops on the nose and a mild honey sweetness. Taste is pleasant crispness as well. Mild floral quality. Perfect for 1pm.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2012
This is one of my favorite styles, especially this time of year. 12oz bottle, no date that I could see, poured into a stemmed lager-glass. Pours a straw gold with a thin white cap. Fair spotty lace clings to the glass. The aroma is earthy and "green." Slight veggie scent, with a bit of green hops. Cool crisp bite to this. Carbonation level uplifts this "light" beer making this one quite zippy and refreshing. Great flavor profile of mild bittering hops, creamed corn, fresh bread - all melded together beautifully. This beer really hit the spot. Were this a local offering, I’d have a sixer of this on hand most anytime during these warm months.

Rastacouere (6125) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2012
Delicious looking crystal clear golden ale with a 1-incher dense ivory head and a very honest bubbling activity. Grainy, bready, rather fresh nose for a bottled Kolsch where just a touch of fruity esters do show up. Despite appearing very bubbly, the first impression in mouth is the surprise at the bubbles’ softness. They are soft and creamy, rather than crisp and sharp, making the texture a bit loose and untight and giving it an impression of cerealic roundness that is not unpleasant. A whisper of spicy German hops bring that deployment to an end, leaving a fading, moderate bitterness that cuts through the malts. Perhaps not the most authentic Kolsch in terms of texture especially, but still a neat drinker, like a fruity helles, I’d take more than one pint of in the right circumstances.

sic1314 (3199) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2012
Think of a standard Kolsch, but add a reasonable amount of bodyfeel. Quite possibly the best example of this style I have tasted, would not be out of place in a brewery tap on the Heumarkt.
