Brewed with a blend of German pilsen, wheat, and honey malt, Brother's Gold is brewed in the tradition of a true German Kolsch, full of flavor yet refreshing.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - OCT 25, 2005
tap: standard golden color with decent white head. Nice lacing. Big euro skunk hop aroma and flavor. Saaz? Enough malt to balance the flavor, decent just not a kolsch fan.

Draft a little while back. Light gold pour, lighter than the Czech Pils. Malty aroma and maybe corn with some hops. Light malty flavors, a bit acidic upfront to me. A bit floral and spicy hop character in there, and a tad sulfury (which I would say is proper for the style).

On tap at the brewery. Golden color, white head. Clean malts, fruity, with some herbal and floral hop character. Light to medium bodied. Refreshing. Nice stuff.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Draft at Kuhnhenn. Lightly hazy w/ small white head. Light lacing. Lemons and earth tones (grass) in aroma. Taste is lightly sweet with some tasty bitterness in the end. Hints of oranges and nectarines in the finish.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2005
Sampled on draught @ Kuhnhenn Brewing Company in Warren, Michigan. Light golden color. Soft malty aroma, with delicate fruit, light grain and lightly floral/herbaceous hops. Fresh, incredibly grainy texture and flavor, with a light fruit character and a lush herbal hop flavor, though light. This beer redefines grainy. Although I have had several samples of Kolsch, I believe this was my first ever true rendition. The brewer is a BJCP judge, so he knows his styles, plus imported samples are usually always old and American samples just generally are not that great. This is how I would imagine beer in Cologne. Fantastic Kolsch.

2004 draught 12/04 at the brewery. Bright yellow-golden, large bubbles, light haze and a small white head. Aroma of light dusty pils malt, some light wheat notes and a tinge of hops. Flavor begins with a light, unagressive yeast, followed by a lightly metallic hops and grain body. The wheat keeps the flavor dry while providing a very even and soft body. Moderate carbonation, faint honey notes. Even served fairly cold, I can still find plenty of flavor in this. Light hints of lemon arise as it warms, brought on by the hops, which are very well done (not overdone). Extremely drinkable, medium-light body and wonderfully to style. Perhaps a little less yeast apparency than I would like, but that could be a result of drinking this too cold. As was intended by the style, this beer goes down quick and easy, with a refreshing hops zing and a smooth, clean wheat and malt end.

Pailhead (5331) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 7, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2005 On tap: Lighl Euro-lager aroma with some light hops. Transparent gold with a soapy white head. Light sweet Euro-lager flavors up front with a nice light citrus and hop finish. Hops are citrusy and flowery. Not bad, just not my style.

pale yellow--yeasty, bready saaz-like aroma. mild, nutty, lightly bitter flavor. very drinkable but nothing spectacular---kuhnhenn offers much better.

Tap. Golden yellow color, white head. Hops are present in aroma along with wheat and light hints of malt. Taste is crisp, perhaps dry. Hoppy and a little spicy.
