theisti (3467) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUL 27, 2012
0.5L draft, served in a sort of oversized slightly flared Kolsch glass, at Gordon Biersch in Leawood, Kansas.  The pour is a clear golden, with lots of carbonation bubbles, and a one inch white head that falls pretty quick. The aroma is soft floral and hay, simple, fresh nose. The taste is cracker sweet malt right off, the hay, and some mineral and a bit of general earthiness. Aftertaste lingers with a touch of the sweetness. The palate is light to medium bodied, featuring above average fine carbonation and the earthy mineral finish. Easy drinking, nice take on the style.

Sheerbrewing (117) - Athens-Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Pours a clear golden straw with a thick white head, aroma is yeast strong with pale malt to balance. Flavor is just like aroma light malt with a lot of yeast character.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Pours a pale golden with a thick white head. I’m getting a little bit of grass in this, but not a huge amount of smell. This is very easy on the palate and goes down rather nice on a hot summer day.

thetmaxx (783) - West Sacramento, California, USA - APR 22, 2012
Poured from the bottle, aroma is grainy, bleh I know kolsch beer is light and refreshing in summer, but so plain! Flavor is also grainy. Whatever.

seymour (1654) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - DEC 12, 2011
UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 Tasted on tap in sampler glass. Appears a clear golden color with weak white head, no lace. Little aroma, but there are hints of grain, baking bread, refined hops, and some fruity yeast esters. A very crisp, clean and refreshing ale. Easier to drink than macro adjunct lagers.

PacNWDad (107) - Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Great aroma. Flavor is not as robust as I would expect with a Kolsch. Mostly sweet, malty taste. Well-carbonated.
