Our most approachable beer. The low hopping rate and clean yeast should accentuate the malty flavors expected in a Kolsch-style German ale.

JaBier (7027) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Sample at Fifty West on 3/1/16. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, almost corny, with light noble hops. Malty flavor with sweet corn accents and slight noble hops. Tastes more like a cream ale than a Kolsch.

drsordr (2380) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2015
Draft sample at By Gollies pour clear light yellow with thin white head. Nose crystal malt, light spice. Taste lighter all around, some crisp clean flavors. Mid palate minimal grainy malt. Clean finish as well. All in all pretty good for the style.

@ 50 West / Cincinnati --- Clear light amber color with a rim head and tiny dots of lace. Taste is mild light malt that reveals a tiny touch of sulphur and flowery hops at the end of the palate. All moves smoothly through a lingering finish. A little more subtle than the best examples, but still true to the style. A good kolsch.

From draft sampler at the brewpub on June 16, 2013. Light lemonade-like hue, almost nonexistent aroma, light sweet taste with some lemon flavor. This brew was named "50 West Speedbump Kolsch" at the time I had it.

Dogbrick (11654) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear pale golden color with a thin white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, fruit and sweet malt. The finish is fruity with a mild hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Well done Kolsch. Cloudy, pale yellow. Very drinkable. Light as kolsch should be, with the malt tasting lightly bready and the hops with a light lemony flavor.
