COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on a kölsch style ale that is soft on the palate with delicate malt flavor. Balanced with a touch of wheat and honey notes. Dry and winelike with a flowery hop finish.

Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Better than your standard kolsch, nice floral notes from the hops with a hint of spice, sweet cereal grain, and clean yeast crispness. Very easy and drinkable, bubbly mouth.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2014
On tap at Closed for Business. Pours a clear neon yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of bready malts, light fruits, lemon. Flavor of light spices up front, sharp pale malts, light fruits. Fairly bold and sharp for a kolsch (not a bad thing). I quite liked it, a step above your average kolsch. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

I thought this would be a category leader. A delicious Kolsch. There was some wheaty, citrus flavors along with a beautiful hazy golden-straw beer.

I believe this is my first introduction to the Kolsch style, from an unexpected source - a South Carolina small scale micro-brewery rather than one of the original Cologne breweries - but according to my colleagues is indeed an authentic example of the style. The local source is a bonus I’m still trying to comprehend the appearance of this style but I suppose this is close to the standard of hazy pale gold color and bubbly lacing. Flavorful with a number of subtleties with pale malt base, lemon notes, and some honey sweetness. Very light mouthfeel but again I understand this to be par for the style. Clean refreshing finish. Different and enjoyable overall, I am definitely intrigued by the Kolsch style and intend to sample more. I also will keep an eye out for more offerings from Coast Brewing.

Draft. Pours a cloudy straw color. Light body, exceptionally drinkable, with a nice palate cleansing finish. Floral notes with a bit of brininess.

Pours pale yellow gold....hazy, minimal head. Dusty lemon malt scent. Taste is grass, lemon...slight bittering. Very clean flavor.

excellent balance and a damn fine kolsch - one of the best I’ve had in quite some time.

shrubber85 (6977) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle. Barnyard lemon malt aroma. Pale yellow with small head. Light sweet lemon malt and mildly bitter grass/hay flavor. Light body. A nice beer but not very Koelsch-like.

queenholly (2611) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle. Light lactic lemon aroma. Clear yellow with a small white head. Grainy malt and grassy bitter flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation. Tasty, but more like a pilsner.

11/21/2010: COAST 32/50 Kölsch... Aroma: Light lemongrass; grassy. Appearance: Hazy, dull yellow - a bit like urine; thin, off-white crown on top. Flavor: What, yeast, grasy, dusty vanilla, moldy bitterness. Palate: Light in body; thin; very little carbonation. Overall: Hmmm... not so good.
