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.

12oz bottle. Clear, yellow color. White foam. Aroma of puffed wheat, crisp malts, and floral hops. Crisp flavor, bold hop. Hops flavor tastes like cardboard. An odd finish. It’s good for after mowing the lawn. (3760)

Average at best. Really bland flat backend taste. Wish it had a bit more fruit like light aftertaste. This is just a classier Miller lite ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I was disappointed. This had some head and a bit of color to it, but the flavor was well below what I was hoping for in the Kolsch.

Pours a clear light yellow/golden color. Aroma of yeast, lemon and grain. Very light on flavor. I can hardly discern a taste. Perhaps citrus with a slight grain at the end. Easy drinking, but not much flavor.

This beer seems confused. Doesn’t taste much like a Kolsch, seems more like a blonde ale with too much summery spicing. It was ok, but not that good.

Very light golden, little to no head. Light grass and a touch of citrus sourness. Dry at the front getting towards lemon, not all that sour though, just reminiscent of lemon. Spritzy and dry with a somewhat roasty hop presence. Might not be the freshest sample, but I reckon there should be more flavors noticeable than what were.

I guess from now on I make sure there is a wheat reference on the summer brew. Man I can’t stand kolsch. Aroma has some fruit and that’s it. All downhill from there. Slightly skunky, probably good after some hot sauce and your palate is wrecked.

Kevin (2192) - New Mexico, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Pours an almost clear yellow with a lasting thick white head. Dusty lemon peel nose. A bit doughy watered down citrus flavor leaves a scum feeling on my tongue. A bit of lingering toast in the finish. This is really not working for me. The flavors taste muted somehow that I find hard to explain. Ap-3 ar-5 tas-4 pal-2 ov-7

Eh. It’s got it’s place I suppose, but it’s fairly disappointing. A bit of sweet maltiness, but a cardboard finish. Drinkable but certainly not to search for.
