A crisp and authentic German style beer, our Claritas is a pale straw color, featuring fruit-like aromatics alongside those from the malt and hops. Malt sweetness is balanced by hop bitterness, resulting in a smooth, dry, and clean finish.

Velvety smooth , but I’m not completely won over. To me, kolsch just means you are looking for a beer with minimal flavor that is not offensive. It is okay. Pint @ Costal Crave

Draught @ the brewpub, San Diego. Aroma is mild with hayish tones, fruits and peaches. Flavour has grassy hops, some fruits, cereal and some hayish tones. Rather crisp and fruity, more like a kellerbier than kölsch. very refreshing.

Can into pint glass. Appearance: pale gold color, thin head. Aroma: pale and grassy malt, yeasty bread, light fruity hops. Taste: good smooth malt, bread, straw, grain. Euro yeast finish. Moderate grassy hop. Palate: smooth, but lingering oily finish. Overall, a very good refreshing "light" beer. Well done.

jinroh (803) - ESTONIA - AUG 6, 2015
Pours golden. Bit of foam, aroma of grassy hops, bit of barley and fresh bread. Taste has also some herbal hops. Some bitterness mingling with lager-like soft maltiness of this beer. Quite nice actually, especially refreshing on a hot summer day.

Marheb (3377) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 3, 2015
(En fűt ŕ la brasserie North Park): Belles arômes fromagées, herbacées, citronnées avec une feinte sulfureuse. Les céréales ont plusieurs qualités et sont délicieusement délicats. Saine et longue amertume narcotique pour compléter le gigantisme de la buvabilité.

ration (2036) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 2, 2015
020415. Can at home. Pours light golden with a nice head. Aroma grains, malts, hint of hops. Some wheat. A bit cardboard like, but this probably too old a can. OK.
