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.

12 oz bottle consumed while mowing. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale bready malts, light citrus notes, mild bitterness to the finish. This did fit the bill as a lawnmower beer.

Pours golden yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is bread and yeast and light malt. Tastes crisp and carbonated. More breadiness and a hint of citrus (lemon?) overtones and hops. Fine summer brew; nothing memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Pale golden color with minimal white head, softly carbonated. Aroma is slightly fruity. Lightly sweet with a bit of wheat flavor. Light bodied with just a bit of sweetness. Decent for a hot summer day.

27/VII/13 - 12 Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - bottled: II/15/13 (2013-672)Thanks to Yuang for the bottle!

Clear dark yellow beer, fizzy small white irregular head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, bit sugary, honey, fruity notes, grapes. MF: ok carbon, light to medium body. Taste: sweet start, bit sugary, tangerines, bit lemony, slightly bitter hops, some citrus. Aftertaste: little bitter, white grapes, grassy touch, pretty water. Not as bad as I had feared.

It tasted like a run of the mill summer beer. It’s beer and I enjoy beer. Refrigerator.

Pours gold. Really lacks any flavor what so ever. Not a great offering from goose island at all.

12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with short-lived, foamy, white head. Aroma is of biscuit malt, light Noble hops and hint of lemon. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Herbal hops, biscuit malt and hint of citrus nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is long and semi-dry. Very nice summer brew.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Pours clear golden yellow with a slight white head. Aromas of lemongrass, biscuity malts and floral hops. Crisp light mouth with a nice balance of maly sweetness and bittering hops. Very refreshing. Seems a bit hoppy for a kolsch, but very good regardless.
