COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While known for their lagers, German brewers also produce terrific ales. French Broad’s Kölsch is faithful to the great German ales found in Köln. Golden in color, with a refreshing crispness, pleasantly sweet malt finish, and distinctive German hopping.

From tap at brewery. Golden pour with high head. Aroma was bready with a sour hint. Taste followed. Clean and crisp but slight off taste for me.

Beer #15 Asheville trip. Liked the fact that they just came out and called it a Gateway beer. Having said that, it is a nicely done Kolsch. Clear, golden, nice head. Aroma is biscuity malts. Flavor is a match, just a faint hint of floral hops. Pleasant, well made brew.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom in Asheville. Light grain in the nose and flavor. Very light amount of sweetness. Super light body and high carbonation.

The aroma is malty and slightly citrusy with mild hops. The appearance is hazy gold with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a very good beer.

the golden taste of this beer is quite nice, taste of light malts, with a touch of honey and spices. large pearl bubbles makes a very nice beer to drink.

I love this ale. a very nice and light taste with a slight hint of hops. the malt flavor is subtle and this ale very drinkable. highly recommend this if you like an ale less filling and long on taste.

This is really light and easy to drink. Not a lot to the beer, but in a good way. Does not have the skunky taste you get with a lot of beer from the Lager family, but makes for a lighter drink to counteract heaviness. Pours golden with a small head.
