COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

badhack (296) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 14, 2013
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 (270) - 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.

draft, clear golden color with short white foam, aroma is fruity with a decent clean fruity taste, could be a bit more flinty and dry but not bad

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Sample at the brewpub on 8/10/10. Clear yellow/gold pour with a thin white head. Malty aroma with crisp noble hops and lager yeast. Kinda faint and weak though. Malty flavor with some crisp hops and lager yeast with a thin finish.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Pours a very clear macro look almost too yellow. Aroma is minimal. Flavor isgood. Some pear notes, a crisp clean finish. Very good a hint of bitter bite atthe nd but more crisp and clean than anything else

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 12, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear yellow with a modest white head and a floral aroma. There is a citric caramel malt flavor with some carbonation and a dry crisp finish.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUN 22, 2010
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?
