COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our  NEW German style Kolsch pays homage to the traditional beer of Cologne. It pours a pale straw color and delievers floral hop notes and smooth malt character from extended cold aging, crisp, flavorful and refreshing, our German Style Kolsch is the perfect summer craft beer.

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.

Drank from 12 Oz can. Crisp clean taste. Light kolsch style. Light malt finish. Good representation of the style

12 oz. Can. From craft 12 pack from distributed. Nice color and head. Hits those German style notes. Purity indeed.

Radek Kliber (6495) - 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 (5005) - 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.

Perfect summertime beer. Very refreshing by the pool. New cans are great! Crisp and clean

EithCubes (4944) - 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 (2127) - 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.

solidfunk (4029) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2014
Not sure what’s going on here again. Typical random kolsch. Pours a little orange with some head and lacing. Some barley profile. Not really spot on style. On tap at DC Beer Festival.

Lancaster Kolsch was a unique flavor I love the Christmas and the clarity of the beer itself coming in the can was a unique experience after I had it I had to go buy a six pack to go very clean and refreshing easy to drink and enjoy
