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.

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.

12 oz bottle poured into a weizen glass (it was there...) Pale yellow with a thick white head on top. Nice malty flavor with little hints of lemon and alcohol. Fizzy and light mouthfeel with lingering hop bitterness. Certainly refreshing, my drinking this after a hot bike ride may have influenced my score above the average.

Draught@Charlesmark, Boston. Golden color, white head. Smooth malty flavor with fruity notes and some lemon. Medium body, high carbonation. Not bad.

Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured. clear blond color like any commercial lager. Aroma was malty and effervescent. Tasted just like a regular lager. This beer serves it's purpose as a summer beer. For the price I'd go with the commercial brands instead. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A fine kolsh, crisp, clean, refreshing, but not really special. Fine I a variety pack but its not something I would seek out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bit disappointing, honestly only a slight notch above tasting like a mass produced macro lager. It has drinkability, and is crisp and clean, but nothing is special about this beer in any way.

I am a huge fan of the Kolsch style but this was a bit of a disappointment. No aroma and when the beer was poured there was no head at all. However the finish of the beer is very good but I did not pick up much flavor.

On tap. Golden color with a small white head. Light in body, but with floral aromas and flavors. Drinkable, but forgetable.

Great summer beer with light citrus notes, slight hoppiness, and crisp, sweet malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
