Award-winning example of the German –style Kölsch golden ale. Brewed with prized pale malts and German Hops, Tire Bite is refreshing Golden Ale

I have to admit, Flying Dog’s creative artwork drew me in. I bought a six pack in Charlotte, NC. I loved it... haven’t had any luck fiunding it since. It’s a good, refreshing beer. I normally prefer darker beers, but this one did the trick for me.

different, yet somehow boring. not a bad example of a style i dont much care for. i dissagree with comments about this being the brewery’s best. their lager and porter might not stack up that high against other lagers and porters, but they’re better than this. Good summer beer.

I pretty much agree with Gusler’s review here. Pale, sweet, kind of light with and acidic finish. Shows some nice german ale yeast characteristics. Fine, but not exceptional in any way.

Re-Rate 04/26/02: Clear gold in color, nice rich white head, with fair lace. Sweet at the start, top light, finish is dry, acidic, moderate carbonation, drinkable, but not a great beer.

Koelsch is not my favorite style. I find this beer best when I am very thirsty. Quite refreshing. Golden color and hoppy. Decent but probably will not purchase again.

This is one of my new favorite beers! It is unbelievably refreshing! Great taste and goes down really easily.

Kind of maple-colored, mine was not skunky or smelly which a lot of people seem to have to contend with in this Ale. Possibly because mine was from a case that was not exposed to light? Anyway, this was crisp and lightly hopped. Not too bad at all.

Went down easy with a decent aftertaste. Refreshing and enjoyable. Extra points for imaginative name.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2008 A fresh & clean refreshment. Starts crisp, finishes just a little wet and syrupy; not as dry as most other Kolsch beers I’ve had. Has a gentle hop aroma with some bitterness... somewhat of a ’rough,’ corn-like edge, which seems to be typical for this style. Fairly easy-drinking though. It’d be a good beer to suck down on a hot summer afternoon.
