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 from a bottle, lasting head and good lacing. Appears hazy, golden. Not much aroma, but what there is on the hoppy side. Initially sour then slightly bitter, reminds me of grapefruit. Clean, dry, refreshing finish. I don’t taste the malt.

Not much to this beer, although I wasnt expecting much either. Works as a thirst quencher. Somewhat cloudy pale yellow, with great head and lots of fizz. No real aromas, maybe some weak malts and citrus. Flavor is weak and somewhat sour with some hops detectable. Get for a session if nothing else is available.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Bottle, best by 9/26/05. Slightly hazy golden body with an attractive fluffy white head. Buttery corn flake aroma. More buttery malt in the flavor but it’s accompanied by dry/crisp sprucy, grassy hops. Lemony finish. Light mouthfeel and low carbonation. No flavor component is really big but they work well together to produce a nice summer beer.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2005
pours a light pale color w/ a decent white head and some light lacing. Smell is a light citrus hop and a weak malt a bit of rose possibly. Palate is very middle of the road I can feel it there but it doesn’t impress. Flavor is a nice mild crisp citrus hop and a light malt back w/ some very light fruits. Overall a pretty ok beer for drinking in the sun.

Bottle...Poured a hazy golden yellow with a fluffy sustaining white head. Notable lacing left. Aromas were mild, consisting of citrus, subtle melon, and hops. Flavor again was very mild, again consisting of citrus and hops with a slightly bitter finish. Overall I was not terribly impressed.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2005
12 oz. Bottle: Pours a light golden, mostly transparent, with a white head fully diminishing head. Aromas are light and fruity (citrus), some slight hops (pine, bitterish). Flavor was watered down, overly so ruining most of the flavor, still making their way through were the sweet citrus flavors.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2007 Bottle. Light smell of malt with a bit of lemon aroma. Pours a hazy yellow color with quick diminishing head. Nice lacing. Taste of a small amount of malt, light fruit, yeast, and a delicate hop kick that finishes a bit bitter. As good as it gets for a easy drinking summer beer.
