COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Subtle hop notes balanced by a light body and hints of honey make this a refreshingly crisp light blonde ale; an easy drinking favourite.

It would be a disservice if a kitsch weren’t boring. That’s the point, right? Pours golden with good head and lacing. Some barley here as well. Finishes with nice crispness. Some very light sugared malt as well. Watery consistency. Tap at brewpub.

On tap @ Clocktower Pub Ottawa. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aromas were a nice blend of honey and biscuit. Tastes were very reflective of aroma but with some grain as well. Best descriptor would be like eating a graham cracker but without the sweetness. Light bodied and crisp with a short finish. I really enjoyed this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Dégustée en fût sur place à l’établissement sur Bank. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez de grains de malt doux et avec de subtiles notes de miel, de fruits (agrumes) et de houblon floral. Moyenne-mince ronde en bouche et moyennement pétillante en bouche avec une texture huileuse et légèrement aqueuse. Goût de grains de malt pâle sucrés avec quelques traces fruitées (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un très léger goût de miel et de caramel doux (notes de beurre) et en finale l’on retrouve des notes amères de de houblon floral aux traces herbeuses. Post-goût court-moyen, très légèrement amer de houblon floral. (hiver 2005-06)

On tap at the Bank St. brewpub. I actually thought this was a decent kolsch. Balanced, light body, and crisp. Mild honey sweetness.

Pours a hazy gold with a small white ring. Aroma is soft straw grains. Taste is bready grain. After coming back from Germany this is lacking

Not good at all. Kinda smelled cheap, crappy homebrewy, had a weird citrus taste and not in a good way, bready, thick almost syrupy/chewy mouthfeel, served in a pint so it warmed up before I was done only exacerbating it’s shortcomings. If I was offered this or coors light, I’d take the coors.

Nothing to write home about. Pours pale yellow wih small thin head some lacing. Some bitter hop bite in the finish light creamy in the mouth meh.

En fût au Clocktower. Couleur jaune paille claire, mousse blanche. Arôme de céréale et houblon. Mince en bouche, avec notes de c.r.ales et un peu de houblon en finale. Bonne.

Metalchopz (2199) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2011
Originally rated January 2006. Poured a golden colour with slight amber in it. The head was white and did not have much retention, nor lacing. Good fruity nose, specially light fruit, with undertones of grapefruit. Nice smooth taste with a grainy finish and some bitterness. Also, mild fruitness was found in the aftertaste, with some grapefruit and grain malts. Kind of creamy mouthfeel. Great session brew that was refreshing with a nice pleasant taste.

On tap at bank street location. Kolsch is not my favorite style but this was pleasant enough
