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.

Poured from the bottle - slightly hazy light yellow, 1 cm white head. Head dissipates quickly, light lacing. Aroma has notes of lemon and sweetness. Tastes initially sweet, followed by a mild bitterness. Corn and creamy flavors as well. More hoppy than I expected, but pretty good. This would go nicely with spicy Asian food. Medium-short finish.

12 oz. brown bottle into a Foothills glass. 4.9% ABV A: Hazy almost greenish gold color. Almost no head from a fairly gentle pour. Minimal visible carbonation. No lacing except around glass edge. Laces in thin sheets as drunk. S: Musty funky stuff. Grapey. Dirty clothes? T: Still grapey with a slight floral (?) hop bite. Wet cardboard maltiness. Distinctive and good. M: Fantastic fine-beaded carbonation blankets the tongue. Slightly soapy going down but very good. Luxurious stuff! O: Not much experience with the Kolsch style, but this will persuade me to try a few others. This is very good and I will be buying more. M.E. hit this out of the park!

Nice Golden pour with a mild white head. Aroma is grain with light lemon, some grassy notes and buttered toast. Taste is sweet malt, light lemon, grass, and biscuit. Body is light with light, prickly carbonation. Easy to drink and smooth.

12 oz bottle pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Aromas of bread, yeast, light floral. Crisp, light frefrshing.

Grassy and malty aroma. Clear gold, no head or lace. Lightly sweet and light bitter. Too much carbonation, light body. Eh...

adnielsen (9533) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle @ home, thanks to jcnielsen. Pours a touch hazy, light yellow appearance with a white head. Aroma is very herbal and grassy with some lemon, corn, and straw. Medium light body. A little too sweet. Flavor is kind of corny and grassy with a little bit of apple. Not that great.

Bottle - A crisp Kolsch with a mellow flavor. Actually not much flavor on this one at all. A good starter beer or on a hot summer day it’s good. A dry after taste.

Good enough for a cold, summer pick me up after mowing, etc. Clean, clear light amber color. You’ll notice citrus and coriander or other grassy herbs. Not bad.

The better of two beers I tried from this brewery at the DC brewfest in 2014. Mild and lightly sweet. Bright yellow with minimal head.

On draft. Piss color, foamy head. Clean flavor of an orangey lemonade, all crisp summeryness.
