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.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2005 Straw color with a light frothy head. Aroma is very hoppy and lemon citrus. Flavor is citrus and great for a hot summer day.

On tap at Clybourn: Soft yellow, thin head. Light, lemony, crisp. Kind of dry. Would be very refreshing if served a bit colder. Thanks to Ma Beth.

Light straw color with a citrus and hop nose. Just not enough there for me. Flavor is not pronounced and had an acrid aftertaste. I’ll try again when it’s 90 degrees.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Classic Kolsch appearance ... bright golden, nice white head. Clean citric aroma. Crisp wheaty, lightly corriander-ed, bready beer. Definitely authentic to style. Very well done.

I would not have said "kolsch"...I think this is very drinkable and refreshing but seems too mildly hopped. I like a little more bite in my summer ales. But I definitely would have another one.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2005
This beer pours a straw yellow color with a thin soapy head and fairly decent white lacing on the sides of the glass. Fairly evident clear liquid with carbonation tornado down the center of the glass. Aroma is hay, weeds, and grass with hints of bread and citrus. The flavor is light bodied and mildly malty with citrus in mid-sip leading into a cotton mouth dry finish. Not much to this beer as to be expected. Fairly clean finish, a tad sticky, very dry and highly carbonated. Not a bad beer, not a great beer...but somewhere in the middle. Drinkable, but wouldnt go out of my way for it.

On tap at the brewery. Pale yellow in color with a small white head. Aroma of apples, pine and yeast. Flavor confirms yeast presence, along with sour limes and a vinegar-like acidity. More heavily carbonated than other Goose Island beers. Hops and malts are balanced, but it’s not making much of a difference with my overall impression. Body is thin and fizzy. Pretty unremarkable.

a quick disappearing head, pale yellow color and slight aroma, do not detract form the pale ale flavor of this beer. i probably underrated this a bit.

Probably one of the Best Kolsch examples available IMO... But Who am I too judge

I think that pale ales and lagers get a tough break around here. Bottle. Poured a pale gold color with lots of carbonation. Bubbly head that left fairly soon. Some lacing. Slightly fruity, hop aroma. Champagne-like dryness, with a great thirst quenching taste. Not overpowering. There’s a faint tartness, like cherries, and some peachy undertones. I liked it.
