COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Crisp, Pale Golden Ale is made in the style of northern Germany Kolsch beer. The finest imported Noble Hops varieties & 10% Wheat malt gives this brew a dry finish with a complex and yet delicate hop flavor and aroma.

Cask. Pale orange, clear, still. Aroma is strong malt, almost cheesy. Body is medium, slightly foamy. Taste has a nice strong musty hop profile, almost to the extent of being smokey. I thought this was pretty good.

Pale yellow colour. Light and boring. This is bland, soapy, not a very nice beer.

Part of a tasting paddle at The New York Beer Company. Rating from September 2013. Tasty blonde ale. With a hint of peach and nectarine in the flavour.

Tap at the stags head NYC. Poured a real clear yellow with a small white cap. Nose presents faint yeast and malts. Very average. Taste is boring. Drink these after you've had several others. Not a lot going on ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great light beer, very refreshing. Not a lot of aroma and a small hop flavor. Very smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Pours a clear pale straw yellow color with thin white head. Aroma of sweet grainy malts. Not much else in the aroma. Taste is grainy/cracker malts, with some light grassy hops, and a hint of citrus.

Draft at the Chelsea Brewery in NYC. Pint glass. Pours a clear yellow with soapy looking white head. Not much aroma beyond the yeast. The taste was underwhelming with yeast and very light malts. I guess for some this could be an intro into craft beer drinking but frankly it didn’t taste much different than a mainstream domestic beer. Light body, light finish. Nothing to remember.

This beer makes more sense as a Koelsch rather than the Blonde designation. Pretty stale with a musty sweetness. Tried with Nick in 2013.

On tap from Rattle and Hum NY. Pours a clear light yellow with a small head which fades rather quickly. Faint smell of malt. Average tasting, ever so slightly bitter but no aftertaste. Good mouth-feel. Nothing special. Good drink-ability although not my particular favorite.

rosenbergh (6665) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2012
Draught at the Chelsea Brewpub, New York, NY. Clear pale golden colour with tiny white head. Mild yeast & malt in aroma. Yeast, malt and that's about it. Boring & mild flavour. Disappointment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
