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 pale golden into the glass, with a medium-size white head that leaves fizzy lacing. The nose is of grain, citrus, and grass. Flavors are light, with grain, sour orange and coriander, with a finish that fades to grassy bitterness. A very light malt base carries the whole enterprise. Light body and lively mouthfeel begs for quaffing quickly. Summertime represents the style well. This beer is for drinking, not for contemplating.

Sampled from a bottle. A clear light gold with a good white head. Clean and fresh with a taste of light malts with some grassiness. Dryish finish. A pleasant summer beer, and not a bad attempt at making a Kolsch-style beer.

Kölsch nie jest stylem, który znam zbyt dobrze... Każda okazja, żeby go spróbować, jest więc dobra! Kolor złoty, piwo klarowne. Piana biała, ale niezbyt obfita. Aromat chlebowy, trochę trawiasty, owocowy. W smaku słodowe, lekko cytrusowe, z wytrawnym finiszem. Wysycenie średnie, w kierunku wysokiego. Całkiem przyjemne, pijalne!

Bottle. Pours a light yellow color. Easy drinking smooth easy session beer. I'd have this at a BBQ or a summer game ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OldMrCrow (2413) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine.

Light gold pour. Slightly floral aroma, bit of grass. Sweet grains, a little bit fruit, but not really a full on kolsch vibe here. Drinkable enough light summer beer.

Sour scents of grass and potatoes. Pours a pale gold. White quick dissipating head. Tastes distinctly crisp and light. Low carbonation. Good kölsch.

ryrpat (329) - Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2016
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

Nice yeast nose with malty opening flavor. A fairly standard kölsch, glad to see this variety becoming popular.

Bottle - Pours pale golden, white head. Lemon, melon, grass, floral, and some other fruits in the nose. A bit of biscuit, light citrus, and a mild hops bitter finish.
