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.

Light in aroma, palate, appearance. Malty with some citrus. No bitterness at all. A good summer beer for non-hopheads.

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 (715) - New York City, 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.

TXBadger (1242) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2014
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.

Very generic summer ale. Not much flavor going on here. How funky is your chicken how loose is your goose? This goose is not totally loose.

12oz bottle 6/03 (Old Notes)-Pours golden with a nice size white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, and hops. Taste of the same with a bit more hops. This light bodied brew is not bad but not my favorite style.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a hazy yet somewhat clear golden body that yields a small white one finger head that dies within a minute. No lacing is seen and carbonation sporadicly rises. The smell had some malts and hops balanced very well. Some lemon and grassy notes stay in the background. The taste centered around the malts with the hops moving to the background. The lemon comes out a bit stronger than it did in the smell. The taste gets sweeter as the beer warms. On the palate, it sat very light that led to a smooth feel in the mouth, the carbonation leaves a mild sting on the tongue. It is a very drinkable beer. Overall, this is a nice grill side beer that is nice to have in the Summer.

bottle. golden with one finger head. Light bodied summer beer. Crisp, but not much flavor going on. Solid for what it is though.

Cerveza pale ale color ambar oscuro, aroma frutales igual que el sabor, un tanto amarga pero se sustituye por el sabor que deja en el paladar.

Not the best Kolsch you’ll ever have but it’s a great representation of the style. The pleasingly mellow grain taste and the refreshing, light body are every bit as authentic as the mild German hops. Summertime doesn’t reinvent the wheel but is true to the style. As the name suggests, this would be the perfect beer for hot, sunny weather.
