COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Well, they were aiming for light body and they achieved their goal. Nothing bad here, just not much that is above average. Easy to drink, crisp, light on everything, including flavor.

nearbeer (3936) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 9, 2014
12 oz. bottled 04/13/2014. Clear golden with a lasting ring of cream. Aroma of mild citrus, honey and minty grass. Taste is lightly toasted grain, grassy citrus and touches of tart apple and mint. Light-medium body is a little fizzy, but it suits the beer. Balanced and crisp.

Ok. Some meaty grain aroma here. Pours blonde with decent head and lacing. Finishes with light barley bitterness. Tap at American Ice.

Beerathon (1388) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2014
Decent Kolsch. Lemon, soft carbonation, bit of tang at the end. Doesn’t smell great, but it’s lager-esque so that slight skunk funk always seems to creep in. However, the flavor is spot on, and it looks the part too.

Pours a very clean pale yellow with a white head, smells very light as in just a bit of malt and a bit of hops (maybe). Taste is pretty clean and crisp, just a tiny bit of malt and fruitiness, good example of a kolch.

jgb9348 (4925) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Light golden coloured body with a slightly hazy glow and a rich two centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of light malt, a touch of hops and some subdued grassy and herbal notes. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong herbal and grassy character at first with a nice lemon and subdued malt flavour and a pleasant effervescence. Aftertaste shows a nice herbal and grassy taste with the malt coming out strongest, but in a good way. Overall, a very pleasant kolsch with nice flavours throughout and a subdued complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia on 06-November-2013 - Thanks Kev!
