Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Clear golden pour with a big off-white head. A little yeast and bread aroma. Dry and crisp and light but still a nice crisp flavor. A very good choice for summer.

Maxbier (320) - Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2014 Hazy straw color with off white head. Citrus flavors, lemon, orange, hints of grains. Citrus tart (just a bit) and floral hop in finish. I would recommend this one to someone looking for something crisp and refreshing.

Transfer from BA review on 12-11-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a light golden color with a one finger of pure white head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave some foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The smell is very light overall with just some hints of a biscuit nature as well as a little bit of a grassy and citrus smell. Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit and slightly grainy taste mixed with some lemon citrus flavors. As the taste advances it gains a bit more graininess with the lemon getting a bit stronger as well. Some lighter hop flavors of a grassy and floral nature as well as a decent amount of grapefruit show up mid taste, bittering the flavor a bit A light tangerine sweetness joins the lemon and malty flavor at the end, leaving a slightly grainy and more sour/bitter citrus flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the thinner side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are quite appropriate for the style and match well the citrus and grainy flavors of the brew, making for a more refreshing drink overall. Overall – A rather decent kolsh, that is fairly refreshing and crisp, but that is nothing super out of the ordinary.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 4, 2014
Where and how: can 355 ml TW
Aroma soft, tad soapy aroma, straight citrus, lacking Noble Hop feel. Decent.
Appearance :
Top: large froth white top
Base: slightly hazy amber-gold. Too dark for traditional Kolsch.
Palate : nice soft body, lower carbonation than average Kolsch.
Taste: nice malt job, bit of wheat softness? Herbal hops around .
Other notes nice brew but perhaps one step to far to be called Kolsch.

Kolsch ehhh. Absolutely nothing interesting here! The style sucks in my opinion!!

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Can. Pours a clear light gold body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is just lightly fruity with bready malt and a minimal floral hoppiness. The flavor is pretty light, mostly bready malt, pretty light hops, short finish, a little corn perhaps? Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, it’s not the best Kolsch, but it’s drinkable.

EithCubes (5006) - New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2014
Poured from the 12oz can into a 0,2L Stange. Nose is sweet and malty, floral hops and light graininess. Pours rich clear golden with above-average carbonation and a rocky, oily white head. Taste lightly grainy pale malt, floral hops, touch of wheat? Very smooth and swishable, light citrus and a touch of caramel, very fresh and spritzy. Medium body, very lightly bitter, semi-sweet. To be a little prickish, I’ll say this is much more American-leaning than German (and that doesn’t mean overladen with hops, because this isn’t, just not really all that kölschy), but it’s still a delight!

boxofrane (2147) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2014
Can from wegmans. Pours clear orange with a medium sized white head that hangs around a bit. The aroma smells cheap corn lager like. The taste has a light bitterness, dry finish. Plan but ok.
