In technical, brewmaster terminology, this is one groovy beer. Crisp, easy drinking, and refreshing. As groovy as a big wave ... without the salt. 25 bitterness units

I typically find these TJ brand products underrated, but this one is pretty disappointing - the nose is what’s most off, with a little DMS and on oily character, although there is some pleasant malt character and lightly floral hops - flavor has a kind of sharp acidity to it - some damp graininess, mildly bitter hop character - finish of sweet corn character - yea, not that good.

eh. hard to go wrong for the price, but really, there’s just not much going on here. a little bready and generic with a decent light application of hops and malt."

No fruitiness in this aroma (I like the hint of fruit in the nose of the Köln beers. But a nice, drinkable ale nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. This beer is terrible. Not a very good representation of the style. Too much grain taste and not much else.

Bottle at the cottage. Sweet grass and hay with some pils at the end. Fine.

Not really a kolsch bit then again how often do you have a real kolsch. Decently drinkable, would be good at the university bar in copious pitchers. Pale golden clear with no head or lacing. Fizzy. Tap at Gordon biersch.

Bière achetée à Los Angeles. Blle couleur dorée, translucide, avec une mousse généreuse qui couvre le tout mais qui est toutefois légèrement fugace. Nez intéressant où le malt et le sucre se mélangent bien : notes fruitées de pêches et d’Abricots également. En bouche, c’Est moins fruité que ce que le bouquet nous suggère : notes de malt grillé intéressantes, le tout avec une âcreté légère bien réussie. On a finalement une bière goûteuse, rafraichissante, plaisante. Une bière qui n’a coûté (acheté une seule...) qu’un dollar au Trader Joe’s! Cheers!

JosephsBrau Summer Brew has a thick, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, and heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is odd- sweet, cream cheese and ironized soil. Taste is of sweet toffee, cream, light lemon zest, and a prominent, floral hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is heavy-medium, and JosephsBrau Summer Brew finishes semi-wet and highly drinkable. Overall, this is very interesting and delicious, although with its complexity and body, it doesn’t really seem to fit as a Summer beer. A must-try beer, though. RJT
