Can. Pours clear golden medium lasting white head, nice lacing. Aroma is grass, grain and honey. Flavor follows, light sweet and medium bitter with a bit of metallic harshness present. Medium light body, lingering harsh bitterness and a twinge of acidity.

Johnsense (750) - - JUN 29, 2014
yellow pour, fair sized head. Hallertau hops prevalent here. Far more like a pils than a kolsch. Refreshing though not overly complex. Few steps up from a bud but nowhere near a good german kolsch

Sammy (8351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
Not the style, but bitter boozy beer despite lower abv. Light yellow with a big head that bubbles. Bitterness there.

TheBeerGod (5165) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Can. Gold pour with a tall, fluffy white head. Aroma is grainy and slightly grassy with bready malts and soft fruit. Hint of egg as well. Taste is grainy with caramel, toasted bread, grassy notes and soft fruit. Body is chewy with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more grassy notes, soft floral hops, grains, caramel, bread and soft earthy notes.

Foul aroma with a hint of bread, pale straw color with a thick off white head. Taste of bread and nuts. Creamy feel with a watery palate.

nimbleprop (4536) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 18, 2014
12oz can pours a clear, dark gold with some foamy white head and plenty of apparent carbonation. Nose is metallic at first, some cereal, some straw, a bit of honey, some dried lemon peel. Flavor has more cereal grains, a little parsnip, some straw, some lemon. Clean finish. Not bad.

HippieFee (46) - - JUN 12, 2014
Can - Pours clear, cross between gold and a light brown really. Crisp, bright beer. Found it to taste dry with not a lot of complexity to it. Average Kolsch style beer.

Braudog (5574) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Draft at Water Street Grille. Super malty delivery, biscuity even. Super creamy mouthfeel, giving this an overall American Cream Ale tilt much more than a classical koelsch. Enjoyable enough though. (#5534, 6/1/2014)

Grainy nose, white pillowy head with superb lacing. Nice hop / malt balance
