This is a nice summer beer, and actually has a little more complexity that typical kolsch styles. It is semi sweet, semi dry, and has a nice fruity ester flavor that melds well with the quick dry clean crisp finish. Balance is about as good as it gets for a kolsch

Solid all around beer for an easy drinker. Their Four Star Pils is a better summer sipper though I highly recommend that, especially for the price.

I haven’t had more than about a handful of Kolsch’s, but would say this is about average for the style. Flavor is ok. Balance is ok. This style seems like a less malty version of a pilsner. Has a clear gold appearance with a light white head. It’s ok for summer time, but nothing to write home about.

Bottle. Clear yellow and small white heading. Fresh aroma of malt, grass, cereal and lemon rind. Flavor is on par. Light body with some bitterness. Reminds me of the Caribbean. Boo yah.

Had this from the bottle. Light nose and color but good hops and malt blend while still light in the mouth. 5.1% alcohol but still seems lighter. IBU of 20 leaves a little bitterness on the finish from the German hops.

Color is light gold. Aroma is light with a hint of sour hops. Taste is slightly bitter hops with smooth malt hints. Nice and refreshing. Good for summer. Simple. Mouth feel is nice. Could smash many of these on a hot day.

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.
