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.

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.

light gold color with very minimal head. Smells of sweat biscuit malt, grass, hay, skunkiness... Body is very thin. Some bitterness in the finish. Taste is mostly bready malt and skunk. Overall, not terrible but not very impressed.

superspak (3601) - Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 4/12/2013. Pours slightly cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, grape, cracker, bread, wheat, floral, grass, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, grape, cracker, bread, wheat, floral, grass, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, cracker, bread, wheat, floral, grass, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good kolsch style. Good balance of flavors, and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
