jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, - JUN 10, 2013
2013-05-31. Crisp pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of pale malt is odd somehow, notes of pizza dough. Flavour is mild, but odd after the last one. Lightly grainy and not quite cidery pale malt. Average to light bodied palate, soft carbonation. Did not care for it, a rare miss. On tap at Dieu du Ciel, Montreal

Lukaduke (2045) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a pale straw color with a finger of white foam. Nice bready biscuit on the nose with light underlying grass and rustic grain. Palate follows with a bit of honey sweetness but not a whole lot of complexity.

mathieuc (1166) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
[[Style tick]] On tap. Pours a light yellow with a thin veil of foam that leaves some lacing. Aroma is grassy, shy. Taste is clean and lightly bitter with some fresh cereals flavors. Carbonation is high, body light. Dry herbal finish. I didn’t get much enjoyment from this one but it was quenching and readily drinkable.

probstblueribbon (2870) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2013
Pint at Gainsbourg Pub. Clear light golden with a thin white head. Green, grassy, slightly peppery hops, subtle light malts, a little straw or hay, a little of something that reminds me of dill. Medium-ish body with moderate carbonation. Restrained grassy, slightly peppery hops, light malt character, maybe a touch fruity, still had that dill-like thing going on; dry with gentle bitterness and a light noble hop and delicate malt finish. Fairly true to style, I think.

lesifflebiere (1207) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2013
Blonde très pâle aux accents céréaliers très prononcés ; mince, elle possède un petit film de mousse blanche. Au goût, elle est presque salée, plutôt sèche, avec une intéressante petite pointe d’amertume. Très désaltérante mais néanmoins goûteuse, ce qui surprend vu son apparence. On croit détecter des pêches également. Une kölsch savoureuse, sans être complexe ni inutilement agressive. Dans un style qui soulève rarement les passions, celle-ci est une belle réussite.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Draft at DDC. Pours straw colored with a white head. Nose is lightly fruity and clean. Crisp grainy notes. On tasting, balanced with good level of bitterness and nice subtle malt flavor. Dry finish. Easy drinker and very well made.

SuperTiti33 (456) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2013
En fût à la brasserie. 4.9%. Blonde clair et limpide. Nez de céréale. Grain frais. Houblon noble. Bouche: Belle effervescence. Fine amertume bien balancé avec le côté malté. Céréale. Un peu herbacé. Légère et rafraichissant. Très bien équilibré. Bonne bière de soif.

Boutip (4642) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Tap: Poured a clear golden color Kolsch with a medium size foamy head with good retention. Aroma of lightly fruity and buttery malt notes. Taste is mostly dominated by cereal notes with light floral aroma and semi-sweet finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. Enjoyable though not necessarily memorable.

jredmond (5250) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 25, 2013
Draft at Blind Tiger with Streets and RB. Pours a golden amber body with no head. Aroma is sweet malts, cereal, light hop in the background. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with soft prickly carbonation and notes of sweet malts, corn, sweet fruit and hop. Nice Kolsch, easy drinking.
