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.

Wow! Talk about refreshing! Perfect combination of Malt and hop balance. Great color and the lemony flavor makes for a very refreshing summertime brew. Good work on this one!

Spicy and delicious, easy to drink. Sometimes difficult to get outside of Chicago.

A fragile, silky beer with character produced by slight orangey notes.

Smelled good, looked good, felt good ... but didn’t taste good. Initial palate was too bubbly and ’fuzzy,’ if that makes sense. I was rather disappointed.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 16, 2001
Absolutely fantastic! Having never been to Cologne, I can’t say if it is true to style, but this lightly fruity, top-fermented beer is pure joy to drink. Soft, easy-going flavor and a light, refreshing body make this a new favorite of mine. Not to be missed.

A very worthy ’summertime’ brew! Smooth and flavorful, just wish it had a little more bite---acidic or carbonation-wise.

Deimos (81) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 19, 2001
Light and refreshing, (to coin a phrase). Good balance of hops, clean finish. Great for hot weather.

fraternie (814) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2001
Nice balance of hops and a fruity malt with a less potent aftertaste than some other wheat beers. Very refreshing.

slightly hoppy aroma. Pretty light malty taste. Good for hot days like tonight.

I like it, one of my favorite hot afternoon brews. Nice balance, crisp and clean.
