A clear, crisp beer, Kölsch offers a very slight fruity flavor and aroma. It is light gold in color, with a delicate head. This light-bodied beer appeals to nearly everyone who samples it. Expect to enjoy a slight tang in the finish.

Bottle. Ehhh I like German beers a lot but this wasn’t blowing me away. Solid, but for some reason I’m not totally sure about it wasn’t the best thing ever. I’ll try it again.

Bottle at the Shenandoah Throwdown. Pours a clear yellow gold with a medium sized white head. Crackery and biscuit aromas, light grain. Light and crisp, more cracker coming through. Really good lawn mower beer.

Pours from the bottle a pale yellow with a tint of orange. The nose is sweet orange citrus, mouthfeel creamy, and the finish is clean and smooth, with a blend of floral hops and orange crush. I could drink a million of these. Wow, what a Kolsch.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2011 Bottle. I’m not a Kolsch fan, but this is a nice example of the style. It’s refreshing, grainy, and would work well as a mid-session palate-cleanser or yard brew. Well made even if not my thing. Rerate: this beer is making me a kolsch fan. Crisp, clean, excellent finish. The perfect "light" craft beer.

freekyp (1838) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - APR 5, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 Float on the grainy tide of Endless River through a slightly hazy golden current whilst the frothy head forms ample eddies of thick white lace on the glassy shoreline. Aroma shows grassiness, cereal and a little cattiness. Slightly thin bodied with a lightly tart lemony finish. A good lawnmower beer and easy session brew. A little more hop character then others of its ilk.

Pours a soft straw yellow with a one finger of frothy white head. Nose is mildly sweet, some grassy hay character, bready malt, not much character. Flavor is crisp, bready sweetness, corn, mild grassy hop bitterness. Palate is soft with a mild carbonation, a bit grassy.

Kolsches are kind of difficult to rate for me - Mainly because their charms are hidden and require concentration to really appreciate. I liked this one, though - nice mix of subtle grainy notes and a touch of light fruity notes. I could probably drink a lot of this.

Tap. Pours golden with nice white head. Smell of some floral hops and earthyness. Taste is quite refreshing and easy drinking.

Thanks to xxnateballxx for the bottle! Gold pour with lively carbonation. Aroma is grains, corn and grassy hops. Flavor follows suite. Dry finish. Clean and refreshing just not a style im really not all that into
