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.

Bottled on March 5, 2009 A: Pours a very light yellow-grain color with about two fingers worth of head and plenty of carbonation. The bubbles are nice to watch through the transparent beer--wish I’d poured this one into my Sam Adams perfect pint. Excellent lacing. S: Sweet grains. Some hints of hoppy citrus. T: Much like the smell, the initial taste is sweet grains, with some light fruits in there as well. Ever-so-slightly bitter. M: Very light and crisp. Good amount of carbonation. No alcohol presence. D: Exceedingly drinkable--this will indeed be a great summertime brew.

Bottle pour at Rocket City Brewfest. Pale clear straw-colored with a light lacy head. Fresh, grassy aroma with some spice. Lightly sweet but dry at the same time, light with a crisp taste. Some hops, some grass and a slight spiciness. Crisp, slightly bitter finish. Very nice light, refreshing beer.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste citrusy, crisp. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

Tap at Goose Island Clybourn. Pours clear yellow. Fruity but balanced Kolsch. Sweet but not too sweet. I doubt I would like this in a bottle with the extra carbonation but on tap in the brewpub it was fantastic.

SDalkoholic (2339) - Linda Vista, California, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle from Wal-Mart: Poured a light straw blonde with thick frothy head which ended up sticking around like a real quality beer should be. Aroma is mild and has a smell similar to a kolsch style beer with minor trace of grass and wheat. The beer drinks easy and with a soft smooth velvet palate while the liquid has dense weight.

It’s like Blue Moon but has a more appropriate amount of sweetness. Too bad summer only lasts three months a year.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Awesome, well done summer brew!
