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.

found this in the discount bin of a 6 pack place. i was pleasently suprised. It’s light, very lemony with very little aftertaste. A great palate and an all round good summer beer, end for mid-dec.

This was a shackingly good drink! I don’t dislike Goose Island beers, but they really did good with this Summertime. Nice and clean with a hint of lemon refreshment. No bitter after taste and really a treat to behold for the price.

Light color, medium bite, damn I have sampled enough beers from this brewery.Low ABV is against all my standards, what can I say.Ok for a HOT weather drink, other than that its not feature product here.

Average to above average beer. Slightly on the bitter side. Hint of lemon. I’d drink again......probably on a summer day with a slice of pizza in one hand and a remote in the other watching a ball game.

Light gold color, medium head. A medium bodied Kolsch. Malty and lightly hopped. Some citrus flavor, smooth taste. Lots of flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Very nice beer. Light and refreshing, yet lots of flavor.

Crisp clean summer brew. All the easy drinking and refreshing qualities you would expect from a Kolsch.

uglybastard (101) - Riverside, California, USA - SEP 4, 2002
Creamy looking head that fades away far too fast. The brew itself is, clear, gold color. It has a bit of sourness in the nose, citrusy, perhaps like a lemon. Fruity, orange flavor up front that fades to a mellon like flavor (cantaloupe or watermellon) on the end. I think this is a sligtly old bottle as there is a small amout of oxidation to its flavor. Otherwise this would be an excellent beer.

Quite an enjoyable beer. Lower ABV but malty, so it is not thin. "Velvety" would be the word here. Sometimes, I want a beer just like this, no more, no less. They nailed the style if you ask me.
