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.

Got a case of it cheap here nearing the end of summer (still before the 180 days freshness). Very light, with a little hint of citrus and not much else.

Clear pale gold pour with a nice fluffy white head. Sweet grainy aroma with a hint of lemon. Taste is slightly sweet initially then goes into faint citrus rind. Really easy to drink.

JohnnyJ (4086) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Pours a clear golden color from the bottle, with a white head. Some sweetness, light malt, and a bit of fruitiness. Bland and watery, no thanks.

chickenflea (314) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Pours pale golden into the glass, with a medium-size white head that leaves fizzy lacing. The nose is of grain, citrus, and grass. Flavors are light, with grain, sour orange and coriander, with a finish that fades to grassy bitterness. A very light malt base carries the whole enterprise. Light body and lively mouthfeel begs for quaffing quickly. Summertime represents the style well. This beer is for drinking, not for contemplating.

SDalkoholic (2089) - Linda Vista, California, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle from Wal-Mart: Poured a light straw blonde with thick frothy head which ended up sticking around like a real quality beer should be. Aroma is mild and has a smell similar to a kolsch style beer with minor trace of grass and wheat. The beer drinks easy and with a soft smooth velvet palate while the liquid has dense weight.

Adam77 (457) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2013
I thought this was a good summer brew. Poured yellow with a white head. Aroma of sweet buttery malt. Like candy but refreshing. Light. Easy drinking.

drostj (99) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle pour at Rocket City Brewfest. Pale clear straw-colored with a light lacy head. Fresh, grassy aroma with some spice. Lightly sweet but dry at the same time, light with a crisp taste. Some hops, some grass and a slight spiciness. Crisp, slightly bitter finish. Very nice light, refreshing beer.
