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.

duvel tulip glass: the aroma isn’t that welcoming. i swear i’ve always had better bottles of this. maybe my tongue’s acquired better taste? anyway, i’ve finally rated this brew and i also haven’t had this brew in quite awhile. moving along... it pours nearly clear, light straw. the head is thick, tight, white, and a bit soapy while the body is a translucent nebulae. the flavor hasn’t much to make up for the aroma. there’s not much here. i think i’ve had a slightly skunked bottle, i’m not sure! it’s pretty much barn and corny. as it warms my palate is cloyed and the flavor becomes more buttery. i would probably confuse it for a highly respected macro lager in a blind taste test. i need to rerate at the brewery when it’s on draft. hmm. i mean, well... it's not THAT bad. it's just mediocre, and not too good. i rate 3 to 3.9 at a range with its median at good and I rate 2 to 2.9 at a range with its median at drinkable and quite lacking. FYI: 1 to 1.9 averages drinkable yet not shit and anything below 1 is just shit.

Draught: Light yellow. Cloudy. Diminishing, average, creamy white head. Good lacing. Light hay malt flavors, with slight citrus hop notes and barnyard yeast. Corn flavor as well. Light body and thin texture. Average carbination. Little taste. Citrusy.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2004
A pale golden body with a fluffy, white head. Not much lacing.
Nice malt aroma with a little hop coming through.
Crisp, malty flavors dominate. The slightly spicy hop flavor adds a nice balance.
Light and refreshing beer. Smooth and easy to drink.

Thanks to Drnk_McDermott for this one. Pours light lemon yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, hops. Tastes malty, with citrus and hops at mid-palate, and a dry citrus finish. Medium to light on the palate. I noticed very slight candi sugar and fruit qualities at the finish.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2004
Pale yellow, little head. Ultra faint lemon aroma. Wheat bread flavor. Slight bitterness on the finish. I like a good kolsch, but there just wasn’t much to this.

Golden color, bubbly, has a mild fruity undertone to it (green apple, melon, but mild). Some hops at the finish, quenching.

7/5/01: Bottle. Light lemon aroma with a touch of hops. Clear lemon yellow body with a large head, which quickly dissipates. Slight lace left. Small, lemon hop flavor. Clean, refreshing finish.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUL 18, 2004
A perfect beer for hot humid summers. Pours a nice clear gold, and small to medium head. Aroma is clean and somewhat fruity. Flavor is a little hops, a little fruit, and a little malt. Very crisp clean taste and finish

Again, a member of our 9 samples at the tour. Not my style, as I prefer the bastardized American ales >:-) Anyway, looks like a summertime beer, smells like a lager with some fruity highlights. Nothing too special, though very easy to drink and thirst-quenching.
