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.

Originally reviewed: 4/19/10. Had this on tap at the First St. Draught House in town. Came out a crystal clear gold with a thin white head on top. No sticky lace left behind. Scents of corn, butter, lemon zest, and sharp hops. The body is crisp and bubbly. Refreshing feel. Great lemony flavor right away. Silky buttery feel. Some bready biscuit aftertaste. Definite noble hops present as well. I really like this beer. This style is quickly becoming one of my go-to’s, and this one is a great example.

This is my first experience with Kolschs and if they are all this good, I have found a worthy alternative to wheat beers as my summertime brew. Slighty sweet aromas, but not too aggressive. Smooth and lush on the palate. Slightly sweet and spicy with nice complexity and balance. Creamy, yet brief finish.

Pours a pale golden clear color with a small head that quickly dissipates. Crisp toasted malt flavor. Minimal hops that are piney. Mildly sweet up front with subtle bitterness. Well balanced. Slight metallic taste. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Abrupt finish. Good, solid beer.

Rich, malty aroma has caramel and earthy notes and a hint of molasses. It pours a clear solar yellow with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, white head that leaves minimal lacing. Flavor fills the mouth with malt that has caramel, earthy, and edgy bitter hoppy underpinnings. Lively texture has a little more than average body, and leaves a subtle tingle.

Bottle. Excellent example of the style -- Bright and clear, with exceptional, even carbonation -- this looks like one of those old beer signs that had the beer bubbles infinitely rising. Nice creamy consistency and the light grassy notes of a kolsch. (#4426, 1/1/2012)

Bottle. Pours pale golden medium white head. Light aroma of hay, citrus, floral. Mild sweet grain flavor. Light body, above average carbonation, crisp finish. Overall not bad.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that lasted a little while and had some nice lacing. The aroma was super light of a grain malt, grassy and floral hops and a soapy yeast with a hint of lemon. The taste was lightly sweet and mildly acidic with touch of lemon at first and slightly bitter with a large does of yeast and a hint of citrus at the end. The flavor lasted an average time with a yeasty-citrus taste lingering on for a little while. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with the carbonation being rather soft. Overall this was a nice light refreshing Kölsch. Although nothing special really stuck out it was quite solid for the style.

Beautiful clear light golden pour with a nice creamy white head. Light fruity nose with very light graham cracker malty notes and a whiff of floral hops. Nice fruity (grape?) and graham cracker flavor with a slight sweet finish. A tad dryer would make this beer even better. Light bodied with medium-high creamy carbonation. No astringency. Wow! One of the best kolsch style beers I’ve tried. Definitely plan on trying more from Mother Eartch Brewing Co.

Grassy aroma. Golden beer with a small white delicate head. Taste on fresh mowed straw. Cold and crisp feel. Easy to appreciate.
