hawthorne00 (2414) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of bread, nuts, cherries (!?). Taste is sweet with prune juice, caramel and cherries. Dries out a little at the end. Some vague citrus. Low bitterness. Manages to be thin and cloying. A pretty ordinary fruity amber. A torpid troll of a beer. [edit] Wikipedia tells me that Dark Horse is a Nickelback album.

JaBier (4854) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle purchased at Ale Wine & Spirits. Clear amber to copper in color with a medium beige head. Aroma of grainy malt, honey and light noble hops. Malty and surprisingly caramelly flavor with a crisp finish.

Patrickctenchi (3588) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Hazy, orange-tinted brown with a short tan head. Aroma of fruit, baked bread. Sweet caramel, bread, spices. Very tasty, but not what I’d call a kolsch.

tectactoe (1725) - Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: The most un-Kolsch-like Kolsch in existence. Thick, murky copper color with a beige-tan head. What? Mild fruity sourness in the aroma, cherries, lemons, grapes. Grainy, and filled with some sweet malts somewhere between toasted bread and light caramel. Initial tartness twinge on the palate - lots of apples, cherries, and big-time plum. Staunch bitterness is offset by an earthy, malty sweetness; biscuits, toasted bread, caramel. Surprisingly "boozy" feeling for only 5.5% ABV with a pretty heavy and sticky mouth feel. This beer wasn’t god awful, but it wasn’t good, either. Not to mention, it resembles a Kolsch in almost no way... Poor attempt by Dark Horse.

golumm76 (35) - FRANCE - JUN 17, 2013
au premier regard une belle bière, à la première gorgée une déception, rien dans cette bière ne retient l’attention. Vide de goût, un peu de retour dans le palais mais sans plus

jtclockwork (8260) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle from a generous trader. Pours burnt orange/copper. Off white head. Nose and taste of fruit, cereal grain, residual sugar and malt. Light caramel. Light bodied.

Bov (9467) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 5, 2013
from Erzbierschof - cloudy copper-red beer with a moderate foam left; aroma of plums and caramel; a decent malt backbone, mainly sweet, chewy palate, low bitterness and residual sweetness in an aftertaste of plums, apples and honey - nothing to dream about
