COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kolsch, the clean and refreshing beer style of Cologne, Germany, quenches summertime thirst. This pale golden ale with a lightly fruity aroma is cold-conditioned or lagered after its primary fermentation. More simply, our Summertime uses only the finest malts and German hops to create the perfect beer for hot Summer days and warm Summer nights.

It’s like Blue Moon but has a more appropriate amount of sweetness. Too bad summer only lasts three months a year.

This ale pours golden/blonde with a thick white head. It has a strong wheat aroma with a hint of a bitter indeterminate citrus. It has just the right bitter hops notes for me. (Knowing that I like this beer and that it’s IBU is around 20 is really useful when looking for other beers.) It really is the perfect summer brew. It is not too heavy (and not too light) it is well carbonated giving that great fizz on the tongue. Great beer. This is grass cutting beer!

Just awful. It's a poor excuse for even a fake microbrew. Watery an played right down the middle of the hop/malt line. Which is not to say it's well-balanced. No, it's just boring. I will be avoiding this brewery from here on out.

Poured light yellow with small head that disappeared quickly. Aroma was fruity as I opened the bottle, taste is mildly hoppy with a slight bitterness with a light malt flavor. Not bad, but milder than I expected.

Bottle. Smells mild and vague. Pours yellow with a little head. Taste is refreshing, but not very complex. Drinkable, but not very enjoyable.

Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head. Aroma is light malts, sweet citrus notes. Flavor is light citrus, some grain. Light, refreshing when it’s hot.

From a bottle dated April 2013. Pours clear pale yellow with small white head. Some light fruit on the nose ... Balanced malt and hop profile a little sweet, very quaffable and refreshing! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yellow pour with white frothy head. Aroma is paper and a Hinton floral hops. Medium sweet malt nice touch of floral hops. Light medium body with good carbonation. Really clean and refreshing

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste citrusy, crisp. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
