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.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin white head. Nothing but grass and yeast in the nose and the flavor is a bit of the same with some slight fruitiness and malts floating in there. I could drink a ton of these but that doesn’t mean it’s a great beer. It’s a decent session brew but not much else.

agree w porkchop, seems like a touch of rye in here, or spicy hops that mimic rye qualities. Decent kolsch but definitely Americanized. Crisp and clean.

Pour is clear and golden. 1/2" frothy head. Taste is dry a crisp. Rye? Good, not great. Not what i expected for a "summer beer". Kolsch style but with a mild ipa feel to it.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Slight fruit aroma with light grains on the nose. Taste is fairly watery and thin-bodied. Fairly balanced but not much going on. Taste is more of the same. Nothing special.

Clean and refreshing summer beer but the almost complete lack of flavor is disappointing. Smooth with some light astringency

vulcanmeister (222) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours a goldne yellow from a 12oz bottle with a thin white head. Aroma is malty yeast, citrus and grass. Taste lemony, yeasty, and herbal hops. Crisp long and semi-dry finish.

Bottle from The Beer Cellar January 2014. Pleasant enough without being off the chart. Pale and thin to look at but not as thin in the mouth as expected.

Its body has a light yellow gold color with great clarity. On top of the body is a small white creamy head. The head fades fast and makes only a very little slick lacing. The aroma has nice sweet bready notes with delicate fruity esters. I get notes of peach, banana and white grape. I get all the same delicate fruitiness and mellow bready sweetness in the flavor as I did in the aroma. This light bodied beer has mild carbonation and a smooth light texture which is quite quaffable.

trapped (1654) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 20, 2014
Drought. Golden yellow with foamy off-white head that dissipates quickly, slight floral aroma, low carbonation, thin body, medium finish. Quite easy to drink, a real summertime beer.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grain mostly on the nose, not much else; follows onto the palate. Light and crisp, but not a ton of flavor.
