COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big Creek Kolsch is delicately balanced beer style originating from the Cologne region of Germany and brewed according to Reinheitsgebot. Perfectly refreshing for a southern day or a stroll down the Big Creek Greenway after visiting Jekyll Brewing.

Only barley, hops, water and yeast are used under cold temperatures to give the style a dry quality. The ale yeast, which is unusual for a beer that is fermented like a lager contribute fruity (you may pick up a small hint of pear) and bread-like characters not normally found in lagers. Big Creek pairs well with almost any food, but simple foods like cheese and sausage are strong favorites. Kolsch is traditionally served in a 200 ML "stange" tall, narrow glass. 12.5° SRM 4.0 L.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear golden yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is very faint hops. The taste is more like a lager than a kolsch.

kingaugusta (181) - Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Pours cloudy blonde with a big white head. Nose is light fruits and a touch of hops. Flavor is relatively rich for the style and moves from sweet to a dry finish. Very drinkable.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold with a fizzy white head. Light grassy and hop aroma. Flavor is light as well. Some grass and dry hops with a light sweetness. Smooth and refreshing. [9/11/15]

Aurelius (4944) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Pale, virtually clear. Cream ale aroma. Sweet, corny, zesty. Hotlanta lawnmower fare. Medium to slightly light body. Serviceable but not earthshaking. On tap, at the brewpub.

Very crisp and smooth, not bitter at all or heavy, a light craft beer perfect for summer...

drowland (7775) - Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2015
8/11/15. Growler from Craft on Draft. Lightly chill hazed golden pour with a small off-white head, mild lacing. Seltzery apple water, pear, boozy (which is an unwelcome surprise), crackery. Spritzy lemon lime flavor, apple, pear, bread, crackers... like malty Sprite? Slightly boozy. Disappointed, not great.

rollinsr (538) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUL 28, 2015
Pours clear yellow with bubbly white head. Aroma is heavy lager yeast ester. Flavor is crisp malts with a very light fruity hip profile as well as the ever present yeast character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (3783) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy yellow on tap with fluffy white head that lasts. Aroma and taste of the typical cereal and biscuit grain with fruity earthy kolsch yeast behind. A bit of an astringent finish, maybe because I’m hungover, but solid easy drinker overall.

Poured a yellow color with aromas of light hay and some fruit. Flavors were grass and hay with some light pear and a touch of stale hops. Meh not bad but not the worst either.
