COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our 2011 Great American Beer Festival® Gold Medal award winning Kellerbier style Kӧlsch. Same recipe as our standard Kӧlsch, just an unfiltered version served cellar style like a German Brewer might enjoy directly from the lager tank. The experience might not be as crisp as the filtered version due to the presence of yeast and other proteins that are typically filtered out. Try them both and see for yourself!

4 oz draft pour at Mad Fox. Hazy pale yellow with off-white head. Nice head retention. Aromas of citrus, yeast, light bready and wheaty notes. Tastes of wheat, citrus, bready notes, yeast, lemon lime. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation. Like this a tiny bit more than the filtered version.

kassner (1349) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Much like there Koelsch with just a little have too give a pale yellow lemon look. Clean and fresh, but not as good as their clear version for my taste. Lacks some of the light fruit notes of a true Koelsch,

DCLawyer (1412) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Draft at brewery. Pours a pale hazy gold, like straw. Aroma has a subtle pine. Taste is pure lager. A drinkable beer but nothing at all special.

Iphonephan (3162) - McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2012
On draft at the brewery. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Lots of lacing. Grassy aroma. Bread dough balanced with mild citrus. Muted crisp bitter finish. Very refreshing.

GT2 (8354) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Tap at Meridian Pint. Pours a full haze, straw. Sharp urea, lemon, and lacto nose like a Berliner weisse. Pretty funky. Some people at our table thought it was sweaty socks and body odor. I don’t mind it- pretty typical lacto nose. Taste is grassy and yeasty, some squashy noble hops, refreshing lemon, dough, cracker. Sharp, quenching, delicious. I’m really digging this though at first it is too funky for style.

mansquito (3338) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Mad Fox tap ($5.75): Pours a very slightly hazy golden color with a white head. Although I have had the normal kolsch, I find it difficult to compare the two because of the time that has elapsed between tastings. In any case, this is pretty excellent. Aroma has nice bread and hops aroma. Taste is rather bitter, yet extremely drinkable. This is not watery in the least bit like many other kolschs, nor is it kind of rotten like others (Reissdorf, I am looking at you). All in all, this is an excellent, balanced Kolsch.
