Kentucky Kölsch® is a top-fermented ale, a classic style of beer originating in Cologne, Germany. According to German beer law, only beers brewed in Cologne can carry this illustrious title. Aside from our brewery’s Kentucky location, we are certain Kentucky Kölsch® lives up to these high beer standards. For years, Alltech master brewers have used their very own specialized yeast, which is the single greatest contributor to this remarkably flavorful and award-winning microbrew. Our master brewers’ recipe calls for imported pale malts and malted white wheat to create an exceptionally smooth fi­nish.

Kentucky Kölsch® was renamed from Kentucky Light in Spring 2013 to more accurately reflect its beer style. The light-bodied, crisp ale is a German-style Kölsch ale, a classic style of beer originating from Cologne, Germany. With the increasing savvy of craft beer enthusiasts, the Kölsch descriptor is now better recognized and understood.

Deimos (81) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 29, 2006
Pours light without much head which lingers a bit. Good aroma for a light beer. Drinkable . Hey, it’s a Kölsch, not a stout. I like it.

obguthr (5648) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Lemon and hay nose. Clear golden, thin head. Tart lemon, sugar cane and hay at midpalate, clean finish. Light body harsh mouthfeel. This one turned out wrong, hardly recognizable as a kolsch, just a soured mess.

mmmbeer (1389) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2016
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent thin yellow color, white ring about the glass for a head with no lacing. Aroma of hard water, piss that’s been sitting there for a few hours. and nothingness. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is barely detectable, middle is very slim with it being close to water, finish has a slight taste of green apples. Wow- water with alcohol- awesome.

Jow (3452) - New York, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Wow I need to check ratings prior to ordering. Dull golden pour nose is melon, grains and wet paper. Tastes of hints of garbage juice, honey dew, stale hops. Not very refreshing at all.

Fules (792) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAR 29, 2016
Kis habja gyorsan elillan. Szalmasárga színű. Illata gyümölcsös, kiugróan ananászos. Malátás alap, gyümölcsös felhangokkal, leginkább szőlős armával. Szinte semmi keserű, komoly szénsav. Utóíze gyorsan eltűnő savanykás gyümölcs. Könnyed, de nem vizes sör.

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle - Clear pale yellow colour, small, fast fading white head. Malty aromas with some hay and grass. Taste is cornish and slightly buttery with notes of cooked vegetable. Light body, fizzy carbonation, watery mouthfeel. Not good.

Pours the color of straw. Smells like grass and corn coming out of the bottle. Excessive bubbling. Tastes trashy. Pretty bad
