COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Germany, Kobes(brewery waiters) have been serving Kolsch since 1906. But they’re notoriously tough to pin down, always rushing past with grilled potatoes, cabbage, sausages, sandwiches, and big round trays of their namesake brew. And while you might need to speak Germanto order a Kolsch in Koln, you don’t need any such skill to enjoy one here. Ours is light and refreshing with subtle "biscuity" notes and a clean refreshing finish. It’s also considerably less difficult to order. And thats something we can all drink too. Prost! 14°

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 1/4/2015. Pours fairly crystal clear deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a damn nice kolsch style. All around great robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3/27/15 (Bottle) - Golden pour, good carbonation, white medium foam head. Negligible aroma, and not much taste. Very smooth going down, minimal kick. Meh.

355ml bottle. Biscuit and grassy hops, this is quite possibly the most generic beer tasting beer I've ever had. If I ever wanted to some someone what just plain beer tastes like, this would be the best choice. Overall, it is exactly beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yet another Dundee brew that tastes more like a watered down lager than the style it’s actually supposed to taste like. I’m giving this Kolsch (excuse me, "Kolsch-Style Ale") a few fractions of a point because the body and flavor of a Kolsch is supposed to be light. Still, that doesn’t mean Dundee’s take on the style is even a decent representation. It’s not. This ale gets zero points for style or substance.

Bottle. A- Slightly sweet, cereal, biscuits. A- Golden orange color, clear liquid, no head. T- Slightly sweet, watery, subtle honey. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, crisp finish. O- Pretty boring and not much going on at all. I had this less than 12 hours ago and struggle to remember anything at all about it, it was so unexciting.

Bottle from a sampler. Pours a transparent golden with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma of malts, grasses, and a hint of lemon. Taste is mostly just malts.

Amber gold in color. Nutty cereal aroma with a typical macro lager flavor. Overall, not too bad but not the greatest...

The body has a clean clear golden body with a few bubbles of carbonation streaming up to the head. The head on top is small, white in color and quickly fades down to just a thin layer of bubbles. There is not much in the way of lacing. Its nose is light and clean with a light bready sweetness and even lighter fruity notes. The hops are also very mild and just a hint of vine like plant and floral notes. The flavor has a clean, biscuity and bready flavor with just a hint of white grape like fruitiness. The hop flavor and bitterness are very subtle and lead to a crisp, light and dry finish. On the tongue it has a smooth light texture and easy drinking light body.

Just resembles a Budweiser with a little bit more malty taste. Very light watery body and a bit sweet, might as well just ice it down and chug a couple.

Straight from the bottle at Vinnie’s new condo in PCB. Seemed like an odd kolsch to me. It seemed rather malty, biscuity and grainy with not much hop character at all. Not bad just not a good representation of the style.
