COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our lightest choice, the German style Kolschbier is brewed with malted wheat creating a slightly fruity, mild beer with a dry finish, The gentle touch of noble hops lends balance and a delicate hop aroma.

I know, if it’s not brewed in Cologne, it’s not a true Kolsch. This is after American style Kolsch! It nails the subtle yet crisp nuances of a Gaffel. Very nice beer!

such a full carmelized wheat farina flavor so golden and delicious! That is a full bodied and flavored Kolsch! mellow and smooth with easy sweetness and light enough while actually being deep. very nice.

Yellow pour with white head and lace. Paper and light caramel malt. Sweet malt start with paper and a dry finish. Decent medium bodied beer with good carbonation. Refreshing and clean.

Draft at HM. Pours a well carbonated, clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of cereal grains, Cheerios, light grass and some mild bitterness. Taste is much the same, very clean on the palate, light notes of some fruit, and grassy floral hops among the cereal graininess. Solid, smooth drinkable session.

I don’t usually score Kolsch-style beers this high, but this one was very good. The Moonlight Kolsch was very refreshing and delicious. It poured a hazy light golden color with a decent-sized head. The body was crisp, semi-light, but delicious. The flavors were slightly hoppy, but balanced nicely with a sturdy malt backbone.

On draft at the brewery. Golden yellow color with a decent head. Light malt. Clear and drinkable. A nice representation of the style light hops.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2012
On tap at Moonlight. Pours an almost clear gold with a thin white head. A touch catty and dirty on the nose, soft grain, crackers. Crisp grain, light and crackery, biscuits and malt. Nice and grainy, a touch of musk. Very nice, easy drinking, quite crisp and refreshing.

auerbrau (3147) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Halfpint at the brewpub. Pours crystal clear, super-pale golden and a thin clean white head. Aroma is a whiff of faint but perceptible pilsner malt that’s not dirty, but not clean. Flavors are mediocre and really light. There’s a bit of cracker, but a bit of wet, oxidized pils malt. Minimal to no hops. Water profile seems dull. Carbonation is a touch high. At this point, I’m underwhelmed with the menu of beers here. Nothing is standing out. There’s nothing egregiously wrong with what they’re pouring, but things are unexciting and just every so slightly off, like the ingredient quality isn’t the greatest, or some part of the brewing process (fermentation maybe) is a little sloppy.

poured at harvest moon. Pours a light pale color with a good head very fresh with aromas of grains, citrus, and cereal. Nice tones, but lacking depth light with a nice and crisp feel. Straightforward though on the flavors of grains and citrus. This is very enjoyable. Straightforward, it’s not a serious beer, but it is honest and easy drinking
