COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We decided to brew this beer after Rich and Dan visited Cologne, Germany, the birthplace of the Kölsch style. They loved the subtlety of the flavor and appreciated the craftsmanship required to make a beer like this consistent and good. We were on the lookout for a new summer seasonal at the time and the Kölsch, with its refreshing flavor and crisp finish, seemed like a perfect fit.

Description
Our version of the traditional German Kölsch-style ale. This beer, which is light and refreshing, appears to resemble a lager rather than an ale. The Kölsch style is a testimony to the broad spectrum of characteristics an ale can produce, as well as the brewer’s art. The body is soft and delicate with a dry, crisp finish. Available April thru September.

Bottle. This Kolsch style beer has a brillant gold color about it. Pours with a nice size head. Smells good, hops. Medium flavor, kind of beachy.

Very pale gold, loose knit and tall white head, Nice nose. Very light body, little flavor, good carbonation, little heat, not as lean as a lager. Little bitterness and sweetness, but refreshing acidity, avg length, weak but not dilute finish. Yeasty, hint of malt, So weak it could substitute water in the summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Okay. Nothing really stands out on this guy. Maybe that means good balance and drinkable I think it is just laziness on the part of the brew master who took the summer off.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker glass. Clear hay with a small white head. Light clean malt nose, bread, faint grain and floral hops. Soft light malt flavors, mellow fruitiness (apricot), low bitterness. Light, refreshing, dry and quenching. Cool.

This Kolsch style beer has a brillant gold color about it. Pours with a nice size head but doesn,t linger very long. Smells nice maybe of good German hops, malt bill is low with a dry clean finish. Medium body and rounded flavor. I like to drink these fast so they don’t warm up. This is a good shore beer. Drink well my friends

Pours a clear solar yellow with a thin pale buff head. Crisp aroma is mainly fruity, mainly pear, with a bit of malt. Crisp, refreshing flavor is more malty than fruity and has an underpinning of somewhat bitter hops. Texture has average viscosity and fizz, though the tingle does persist. This will definitely take the edge off a hot day!
