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.

My first Kölsch. 12oz bottle, best when consumed by 09/25/06. Pours a hazy straw with a moderate white head. Aroma of hay and wheat, some pepper as well. Lemony up front, biscuity finish. Don’t really know what to compare this to, but it is a refreshing summer brew for a hot day.

Well-made summer beers are really a hard thing to come by, but this is one of them - nice, crisp fruity presence and enough pleasant malts to keep the tongue interested - finishes clean, but leaves an impression of hops.

Shag (2839) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 7, 2006
A yellow appearance with a moderate white head. Not much going on with this beer. Standard issue stuff with a hint of lemons and hay. Good for hot day of drinking and not thinking sessions.

21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Very clear with slight white head. No noticable aroma. Tastes like lemon flavored water with a dash of beer in it. Fuck this shit. This needs to taste more like beer already.

pivo (2665) - GERMANY - APR 14, 2006
Light nose, yellow color, fizzy head. Starts soft, light citrus malt, then a big broad hop bitter. Very un-Kölsch-like. Not a Kölsch at all. Far too bitter. But stil a decent brew.

YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2006
Bottled: Light golden color,small head, little carbonation. Hoppy hay nose. Too bitter for a Kölsch - Light "I’m in Cologne-Kölsch" -taste in the beginning - but than - BAM - Hops a gogo and you are in Chicago!

Pours a golden yellow/amber. Aromas of lemon, grains, celery. Flavor is crisp, dry, sweet malt, and a mild hop.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2010 Re-rated-refreshing with a smidge of bitterness. Spalt hop flavor with a little yeast.

My first Kolsch. Faint fruity aroma. Nice creamy white head, small. A spicey, faintly hop flavor. Nice acidity. Not much flavor, but very refreshing. Could drink this like Gatorade.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Had this on tap at Crescent Moon in Omaha. Pale gold color with almost no head. Smell is mildly citrus and sweetwith just a light hoppiness. Flavor of malt, hop, lemon and spices. Overall taste was very mild. Was very easy to drink, but not something I’ll seek out again.
