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.

Not a bad beer. Not too much going on for this beer. Needs something else to make it work.

6/10/11. 12oz bottle courtesy Tim and Rachel. Very light clear yellow pour with a small white head that fades to a ring. Plain grainy aroma with a touch of green apple. Grainy, pale grain flavor with green apple and a touch of tart again. Meh.

Found this one bottled at Food Lion in Nags Head, North Carolina. I’m not a big fan of this style overall, so I think I rated this one a little low, but ultimately it’s a crisp, slightly fruity and mild sessionable beer, especially refreshing on a warm day.

Tallahassee, Fl - Proof Friday night tasting - 12 oz bottle. Light sparkling golden pour. Little bit of a white head. Crisp, grassy aroma, with a touch of pepper. Clean and crisp flavor some buttery accents, peppery notes. Mouthfeel is slightly carbonated and slightly dry. Decent Kolsch.

12 oz. bottle from Quik Stop Damn you internet for eating my first review! Ar: Clean, honey-malt aroma with a bit of honey. Ap: Nice clear gold with a 3/4" fluffy white head. T: Very nice, slightly sweet honey maltiness up front. The finish is mildly hopped and clean, with a nice lemony note. P: Relatively thin with assertive carbonation. O: My first Kolsch, this was very enjoyable. I can’t wait to knock a few of these back in the heat of the summer!

Tap at Blind Tiger Local Food Bash. Very pale golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma is quite fresh and grassy with a bit of light pils malt crackery flavour. Fresh, balanced and quite tasty. The faintest kiss of estery character. Excellent balance.

12oz Bottle – Beer Mongers – Portland, OR
Golden in color, slight haze with a thin head. Light malt and hops aroma. Good balance with the malt and hops this was easy drinking and finishes quite dry. Good hot day beer.

Straw colored with minimum head and light lacing. Taste is typical grassy malt with a fair amount of bittering. Drinkable, but not memorable.
