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. 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.

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.

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 (3813) - 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.
