davey101 (655) - 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.

fresh and bright grainy aroma, a bit of citrus and peach. nice crisp but creamy texture, mellow slightly sweet malt flavor. dry but smooth finish.

Rastacouere (6123) - 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 (3119) - 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.

wlajwl (3771) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Aroma is yeast, grains and a hint of a hard to describe spiciness. The flavor is mildly sweet malts/grains and a dry and mildly hoppy finish.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAY 25, 2012
12oz bottle. Rating #59. Clear medium yellow color. Grainy and a little spicy aroma. Mild bitterness, more grain and a nice little bite. Good stuff. (2379)

scarletfire65 (922) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Pours a clear bright yellow. Tall frothy white head. The aroma is lemon, grassy, crackers, maybe a whiff of honey. Pretty full bodied for a Kolsch. Flavors of lemon, Noble hops, earthy, vegetal. The finish offers a lingering bitterness. One of my favorite summer styles from one of my favorite NY breweries.

bhensonb (10814) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. Pours gold with a creamy/fizzy white head. Aroma is floral, maybe with a hint of pale malt. Med body. Flavor is floral, touch of citrus, somewhat bready. There’s more content to this than many Kolsches. Captain Lawrence doesn’t skimp. Finishes bready/citrus with a decent amount of bitter.
