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.

Very good. Out of the Flying Dog brewery, this was their best. It has a distinct American-type, mass-produced beer flavor with a little something extra. I recommend this and the other beers by this brewer.

Stinky, ugly and simplistic. Another overblown beer from an overblown brewery. This is one microbrew that should have remained that way...

not bad. a good everyday kind of beer - about the minimum of taste for me.

JMerritt (1793) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2002
Personally, I found the abundance of hops (aka the ’bite’?) in this beer to be a tad overwhelming. The front-end and after-tastes were just a little too bitter for my liking. Call me a wuss, call me a newbie - but I call ’em as I taste ’em. This isn’t a beer for me, sorry.
