This beer is very dry with a fruity aroma. Some of the flavor compounds formed during fermentation are similar to champagne. The beer is ultra light in color and is brilliantly clear. The bitterness shows up on the palate due to the light body of the beer. Faultline Brewing Company serves it’s Kölsch year-round.

This brew had an average kolsch smell, kinda grainy and you got a hint of hop. The color was pale and crystal clear. The taste was grainy kinda average with a little bit of hop which is not really normal for a kolsch. It was a smooth light bodied brew and not bad at all.

Low malt aroma with a low noble hop aroma with some faint soft fruit like notes Straw gold and brilliant, pours with a delicate white head which dissipates quickly Flavor: Very clean and malt forward followed by hint offruity flavors (like melons/pears), slightly lemon like medium bitterness well restrained Palate: medium low carbonation, clean with a semi-dry finish Overall: A very good representation of a Kolsh.... excellent choice on a warm sunny day the soft malt beginning and clean semi dry finish makes it easy going and great with light foods yum!

Draught at the brewpub. Pale gold with a small white head. grainy malt aroma with a touch of sulpher and some grassy, lightly spicy hops. The flavor has a nice grainy maltiness as well, which is balanced by snappy noble hops that give an almost minty flavor. Very clean character overall. Dry with a nice bitterness in the finish that is higher than I expected given the style. Light bodied and generously carbonated, though not to excess. Though there is a touch of candy sweetness form the malt, this really leans more toward hops, which is quite welcome. This makes the golden ale look really bad. Why even bother making both?

Light yellow gold color. Medium white foamy head. Aroma is malty, grainy and grassy. A medium bodied Kolsch. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are crisp and lightly bitter. Nicely balanced. The hops are just crisp enough to balance the malt sweetness. Crisp and clean. Light and refreshing. Dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

This was a light, refreshing Kolsch. Like all Kolsch’s it’s a little fruity, slightly hoppy in the finish with moderate malts. Nothing offensive. Light on the palate and clear with little head.
