A unique twist on an appellation from Germany, Kölsch Style Ale is light, clean and crisp with a dry finish. It has sessionable malt and hop character and a touch of sweetness. Its fresh flavor comes from the German Pils malt and noble hops and the body glows a brilliant, gold color. This beer is excellent year-round but especially great in the summertime. Hops: Hallertau, Millenium

drjay44 (3041) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Draft. Pours a medium, poorly retained, white head, with minimal lacing, over a clear yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is light fruits, pear, apple, slight cereal, mild spice......taste is slightly sweet with mild pear, apple, light hops spice, without bitterness.....mouth feel light, mild acid from high carbonation. This meets this light delicate style fairly well. Unfortunately the style is not particularly interesting, because it is so light and delicate. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

That1Guy (2090) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2014
16 oz can pours a hazy yellow with hardly any head. Watermelon and acetaldehyde in the flavor and aroma. Without the watermelon undertones, this beer would be close to a drain pour. Green apples and watermelon do not go together very well.

TheGB (572) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2014
16 Oz can. Pours pale buttercup yellow and slightly hazy, small bubbles and minimal head. Aroma is sweet and earthy and flavor is crisp, gently sweet with a mild watermelon flavor. Very refreshing summer beverage but not very beer.

Strykzone (5818) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Sampled at the brewery. Clear golden with an almost white layer. A grassy malty aroma. Some grassy and noble hops in here. Soft fruit and pale malts. Light drinking. A little honey in the finish. Pleasant.

On tap at the brewery. Pale golden and pretty clear appearance with a white head. Mild aroma of light malts, toasted grains, light fruit, and light noble hops. Similar flavor, crisp and clean with light spicy hop bitterness and light sweetness. Light bodied with a dry finish.

Oakes (13660) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Touch fruity, smells like a nontraditional hop. Crisp hoppy taste, subtle grassy hop note and clean malt. Not sure it’s a kolsch but it’s a nice beer, clean and dry. Very pale.

Straw hay color. Very light . Like a cheap beer but absolutely refined. Very little head.
