COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kolsch-Style Ale. Our Blonde ale is a crisp and refreshing golden ale. Modeled after the kolsch-style ales from Cologne (Köln), Germany, our blonde ale has a clean, lager-like character, and a smooth, balanced bitterness. The authentic kolsch yeast strain provides a subtle fruitiness, which compliments the Liberty and Hallertau hops used for flavor and aroma. 20 IBU

reggiedunlop (3214) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours pale yellow with a medium white head...thin soapy lacing. Aroma has light grass and sweet straw...just a touch of fruitiness. Flavor follows suit...clean and grassy with light malty straw...tea-like and minerally. Mouthfeel is light but creamy with a dry and straw/mild grass finish. Very subtle beer and quite possibly boring at times but refreshing and quaffable.

"Pretty standard fare, here. Expected from a blonde. light toast, a decent amount of floral hops, and a lack of body and finish catergorize this one. Ho hum."

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass served in Denver. I unfortunately forgot to stir up the yeast before I emptied, but will do a redo ASAP. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

patrick767 (3590) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2014
bottle - Pours a hazy straw color and has a grainy malt aroma. It tastes of sweet, bready malt with a bit of hops. It’s light bodied and drinkable but bland to me. It’s not really my thing.

Homer321 (2117) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark orange, hazy with minimal head. Aroma of over ripe fruit, but not quite rotten with a side of vegetables. Not clean. Taste is initially peppery with some crackery malt but otherwise is pretty flat, undercarbonated, and not good.
