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 had this on-tap and I was less than impressed. Judging by the high marks, I might have a bad batch. However, I found the taste to be flat and uninspiring.

On tap, it was quite boring! Nothing really jumps out at me. No real distinguishable nose or exciting hints in the flavor. Refreshing, but nothing to brag about.

Very easy to drink. Light and no bitterness. I can see why its nice for the summer. Nice and easy, but not outstanding.

Very light body with a somewhat crisp, malty flavor with just a touch of bitterness. Probably refreshing on a summer’s day, but why not just have a tall glass of water and then a beer with some flavor?

Great beer!!! I was very suprised that this beer was so good. the sample says ’consume before 10/19/01’. This is very similar to their Blonde in feel, but a little more Pilsner-ish in taste. Goes great with pizza and I could drink alot of this at one sitting.

Wonderful aroma this beer has! Spicy says it all. Although the color reminds me of a urine sample I gave a few days ago, it was still lovely. Wonderful beer that goes well with grilled chicken breast and grilled bell peppers.

A clear, pale yellow beer w/ a nice soft foamy head. This is the first koelsch I’ve had, so I’m not sure how well it represents the style. However, it leaves a nice, slightly fizzy taste on the tongue, w/ hints of citrus. This would be a good beer for a hot day.

Pale gold, appealing and refreshing sight, with a nice clarity that’s almost transparent, well carbonated with a soft delicate foam. The aroma is mild and subtle, but I get instant signs of malt, a little biscuity and buttery, with a slight blueberry fruitiness and a very faint hop spice. It’s nice and soft on the palate with a gentle mouthfeel and plenty of spritzy carbonation. It’s somewhere from light verging on medium bodied. The flavors are very clean throughout, offering the briefest hints of berry-like fruitiness, my taste buds are still learning but I would guess something of a cranberry, raspberry and cassis mix, without being particularly assertive. There’s a mild hop bitterness in the finish, which does leave a slight flowery aftertaste, but the sweet maltiness comes though much more pronounced. A thoroughly enjoyable and refreshing summertime ale!

A favorite of the summer beers. Great, refreshing taste. Becoming more popular, it lasts six months in the stores instead of 3.
