Our tribute to Cologne’s unique, crisp, golden ale/lager hybrid. We start with German malt and hops and tie it all together with a true Kolsch yeast from Cologne to impart some subtle fruit and wine flavors while producing the smoothness of a lager. Served in an authentic Kolsch stange to enchance the crisp, cool, effervescence of this thirst-quenching beer. Malts: German pilsner, Munich and wheat Hops: German Spalt and Hersbrucker

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 14, 2009
Tap at the brewpub: Cloudy yellow with a fading whtie head. Sulfuric aroma- dimethyl-sulfide, a bit off. Light and crisp body. The flavor has a crisp grainy presence. Some fruity sweetness of pear and a light honey background. Clean finish with little bitterness. Decent, despite the off aromatics.

illidurit (2286) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 26, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 On tap at Magnolia. Poured into a cylinder glass, a finger of head atop a clear pale body. Light sweet malt and floral hops on the nose. Grainy malt taste, floral hops, mild fruitiness, subtle tartness. Great carbonation, drying and prickly but not too bubbly. Refreshing and smooth, light body, extremely easy to drink.

Clear golden. Aroma is lightly fruity, grassy, hint of sourness. Light bodied. Bland and boring, but not bad either.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Pretty standard Kolsch here. Nice and light in color, flavor, and aroma. Comes off with some fruity aromas for a sec... and then it’s lager-half kicks in and yeah it’s definitely a lager. Clean bitterness and clean finish. Not bad... actually it’s exactly as I expected... which doesn’t amount to a whole lot.

DuffMan (9610) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2007
On tap at the brewpub in San Francisco. Hazy bright pale yellow, thin white cap. Fairly neutral grainy aroma, lighter palate with some strong citrus fruity elements and a crisp dry finish. More like an american wheat in my mind.

pivo (2667) - GERMANY - MAY 27, 2007
Grainy slightly sour nose, straw color, low fizzy head. Light citrus note with a dainty broad hop bitter end. think body. Too bitter for a Kölsch, but an OK beer otherwise.
