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.

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

VertBaconStrips (2088) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2009
On tap at the Byward Market in May ’09. Good sweetness, light bread, not much else for aroma. Light gold, clear, meh. Very thick for a kolsch, very thick and rich but I don’t care. Bready sweetness, warm apple pie (very mild one). Nice light carbonation, almost medium bodied, sweet malt finish. Not sure at what point I was fairly toasted...

Pint at the brewpub. Golden yellow color. Nice taste, not too light. Crisp, refreshing on a hot summer day. Good product.

Metalchopz (2317) - 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.

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

italarican (1481) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2012
On tap at the Bank St. brewpub. I actually thought this was a decent kolsch. Balanced, light body, and crisp. Mild honey sweetness.

Tasted in Ottawa from the Clocktower brewery. Taste in pint glass. Clear, Yellow / golden appearance with a thin white sustained head. Sweet malty scent. Taste was balanced but tended towards the malty sweet spectrum.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 2, 2004
Pale gold , bright , average white head . Light aroma of sweet malt , soft , faint hoppy feel , touch of citric flavour . Thin mouth feel based on sweet malty side, some medium light bitterness, and fine aftertaste. Would be nice brew if it wasn’t to thin on body. I just had Kolsch Light. Refreshing for summer days .
