COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

drjay44 (2934) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin, poorly retained, whie head over a clear, yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is light colored fruits (apple, pear), hints of cereal, herbal hops......taste is slightly sweet, with light fruit notes, slight malts, no hops.....mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. Although the style is quite light, this beer needs a bit more in both aroma and flavor to meet it. The fruit notes, while present are quite light. The recipe needs more work as this is closer to a Pale Lager then a Kolsch. BJCP 6/2/10/4/5

Lemke10 (880) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2015
This pours a pale, light yellow color with a slight white head. The aroma is light with grains. The taste is smooth, light, and full of grain. This is a much better tasting that the rating would suggest. Well made for the style.

355ml bottle pours a clear straw color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy and grainy. Taste is a grassy and spicy hop bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. A refreshing brew that would be nice on a hot summer day.

doradobotella (158) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 8, 2015
Apariencia: De color dorado cristalino y llamativo, con una efímera capa de espuma blanca. Aroma: Que recuerda a paja y cereal, se perciben también notas herbales y lupuladas. Sabor: Bastante cítrico, con escaso amargor y un carácter que se mueve entre lo dulzón y lo ligeramente ácido.
