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.

I guess from now on I make sure there is a wheat reference on the summer brew. Man I can’t stand kolsch. Aroma has some fruit and that’s it. All downhill from there. Slightly skunky, probably good after some hot sauce and your palate is wrecked.

Good, crisp, German style brew. It’s very light in the fruit and spice department, but that’s what makes it a good summertime brew. Very refreshing and lightly hopped.

Poured a pale yellow, fizzy white head. Light on aroma, body . Got some yeast and some clean crisp bittering. This had a strange mettalic taste. Thanks Duane.

How refreshing a summer beer that isn’t some type of wheat beer. Light gold in color, clear with a huge white head. Light malt aromas, biscuit and bread, faint floral hops and slight yeast, all very nice but subdued. The flavor is clean. Malt, not overly sweet or bitter, somewhat crisp with a lingering yeast flavor. This is a great summer beer, a brave effort for a micro to undertake.

Faint aroma of citrus. Slight grapefruit taste, a bit sour at first, then a bit bitter at the end. No one flavor overwhelms and overall fairly smooth. Poured cloudy yellow with thin white head that stuck around.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Faint aroma of strawberries, also flowers and dough. Slight sour notes to start, very light and unobtrusive malt that still manages to be a hint sweet, and a finish of spice and flowers. Well done and muy drinkable.

Pale yellow gold color. Medium sized fluffy white head. Slight grassy hops and grainy malt aromatics. Slightly malt sweet flavor with muted floral and citrus hop notes. Finish is crisp and clean. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing.

Good stuff, this. Poured from a bottle to an effervescent head that quickly dissipated. A great session beer; light enough to drink in quantity, complex enough to keep you interested. Not much maltiness. An initial sourness that reminded me of a hefe-wiezen. Slight hoppy finish.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 30, 2005
On tap at the Crescent Moon. This was last Tuesday’s pint nite beer. A fairly decent, yet mild kolsch. Yellow with a moderate white head. Lacing hangs in there for most of the drink. Aroma of slight maltiness, slightly grainy. Possibly a little dash of lemon flavor. Lighter in body than many great kolsch, but does not have the nasty harsh cardboard flavor that lesser ones do.

bottle--nice light golden color with a medium head that lasted throughout. Aroma was minimal. Slight fruit flavor with a light finish. Tasty on a hot summer day.
