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: JUL 27, 2004 I have never had this type of beer before. I really liked it. Refreshing with a sweet flavor. Almost like a weiss beer but I know its not really. Although to me it is realy a nice variation on weiss beers general feel. The light (not in a bad way) and citrusy taste is good.

Now this is a good sipper in the hot humid midwest summer. Pours an orange color, cloudy, nice little white head floats on top, sticks to upper lip until licked off. smells like cereal malts, good floral hops, and slight fruit. Flavor is citrusy with a hint of coriander or something similar, nice creamy body, yet still light enough to enjoy as a quencher. Very good.

Drank barely chilled: Light golden,decent white head.Good lacing and retention. Aroma mainly malty(german malts,bready),but has noticeable hop(spicy).Mouthfeel is well carbonated and full. Great malt flavors with a spicy(hoppy)finish. Balanced,creamy and smooth.Lingering hop/malt flavors. Excellent!

Nice white head forms but it doesn't last over a light golden body. Fairly fruity as compared to other kolsch's I've had and also had a fairly strong hop aroma, but they are both very pleasant. There's also a slight DMS that creeps in, but it's not offensive, it actually adds to a little complexity in aroma. Grainy malty flavor with some light hop flavor mixed in, very well balanced, and has a light, slightly fruity, but otherwise clean finish. Lighter body and moderate carbonation, smooth m/f makes this a very enjoyable summertime lawnmower beer. Great session beer for mass comsumption when light flavor and body are desired for hot summer quaffage.

TAR (2497) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2006 Beaming clear golden. Sticky, retentive white lace. Enticing herbal, Saazy aroma with wafts of mint, peach, lemon, perfume, and straw. Lightly nutty, estery, sweet, and musty. Also notably malty for the style. Round, softly crisp mouthfeel with fittingly moderate carbonation. Vaguely phenolic flavors, which lend a level of depth. Earthy, noble hops dance exquisitely with the clean yeast and pilsner malts. Finishes appropriately fruity and rich with notes of melon, honey, and a sweet, succulent pilsner malt base. At last, an American brewer combining the understated elements to make a sweet, hoppy, and flavorful Kölsch.

Straight out of the fridge, this started out a bit sharp. I wisely set it aside for a few minutes while I was scrubbing wallpaper glue off the wall on a 90 degree day...When I sipped it again - yup, here we go - thicker and sweet with some bready malt, a mild hop along the sides and again at the dry finish. A few of these helped get me thru a very very hot day.

Slightly bright orangey - gold white head. Good lightly does malt. Creamy, clean and fresh. Velvety .Nice mouth feel. Soft hopps and yeast. All is well balanced and well executed. The best and truest Kolsch I had in N.America so far...

A very clean, crisp Kolsch. Good malt flavor is balanced well by the subtle hop tastes. Finishes very clean and dry. A good summer brew.

RBSG2003 Clear, straw-colored beer. The nose is lightly malty, lightly floral and citrusy. Regarding flavor? Not much there. Well-balanced though. So is seltzer! Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, clean finish!
