COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Kölsch is a German-style ale that is brewed to obtain lager-like characteristics. This brew is highly carbonated and low in alcohol to create a very refreshing, thirst quenching beverage. Lite beer fans will really enjoy the Kolsch.

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 11, 2007
tap at the repeal prohibition festival. pours light yellow with a small soapy white head. nose is grassy with some active kolsch yeast here, almost skunky notes. very grassy flavors with quite a bit of grassy/spicy hops. definately a refreshing brew for shure. assertive grassy notes all the way through to a long finish. I could drink this one for hours. well done kolsch, a very nice style if you ask me.

Ughsmash (7099) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2007
Poured a dull, clear golden with a medium cap of creamy white head and some lacing. Nose was soft and grainy with some biscuity sweetness.. dusty noble hop accents. Flavor had a sweet biscuity base with moderate, dry bitterness surrounding.. faint head of citrus extends through a short finish.. solid. Light-bodied with rather high carbonation.. tad grainy.. felt and tasted very good for the style.

vyvvy (3904) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 12, 2007
Sampled at Schlafly’s Repeal of Prohibition Fest along with Beerdrenched. Pours yellow with a light white head. The aroma is grainy and grassy with a bit of skunk. Medium / light body with a pleasant sharp carbonation. The taste starts grassy and grainy with pale malt. The finish brings in some spicy hops. Nothing fancy, just a well done kolsch.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - APR 10, 2007
Sampled at the Schlafly "Repeal Of Prohibition" beer festival, I use to like the similiar offering from Schlafly, but these were side by side at festival, and this won out. Lemon honey, light, sweet pale malts and a little spiciness to the nose, the lemon honey returns in the taste giving it a light fruitiness, thin sweet grainy maltiness, and a very soft grassiness, spiciness at the end. The body had the feel of a lite beer.

(draught at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival) medium gold with white head. Flavor of crisp malt with a slightly bitter finish.

ElGaucho (2192) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Cask version at 2007 NotLA. Lager/malt liquor aroma. Cloudy yellow body. Very lagerish flavor. A little diacetyl. Fruity and dry. Not bad, but not overly representative of the style.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2005
On tap at Mickey Finn’s, Libertyville, IL. Hazy straw colored ale having tiny diminishing white head with no discernable lacing. No discernable aroma and carbonation. Light-to-medium bodied that starts with lightly sweet malty flavor with some grassy and honey hints. Finishes with light hop bitterness. This is a good drinkable beer, but nothing special. I agree with Cornfield in that it’s a tad too sweet.

Cornfield (5452) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2005
This is something the brewer brought to the ICBG Summer BrewFest besides their IIPA. The color is a bright yellow and the head is a frothy white. The aroma is an intense malt sweetness, a bit of pome fruits, and a trace of floral hopping. This thing was WAY TOO SWEET for me, and for the style, too, I would suggest. It actually made it difficult to distinguish other flavors that may have been present. The finish, a sticky sweet syrup. One’s enough for me.

Clear light amber body. Pencil eraser, nuts and anise in the questionable flavor. Tomatoes in the nose. Bad batch?
