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.

Taste: light body with caramel malt domination. Honey notes. Good attenuation. Aftertaste: sweet caramel. Total respect of the style. Nothing special.

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.

Koskela (409) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 10, 2012
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.
