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.

Draft in a coastal beerhall in North Carolina. Mild malt floral hop aroma. Looks like a kolsh should. Well balanced malt and floral hop taste w a v slightly sweet finish. Great kolsh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ronaldtheriot (1784) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Endless River has a very thick, white head, a hazy, golden-straw appearance, and lots of heavy lacing splotches left behind. The aroma is of pungent, spicy hops and pale barley malt. Taste is of sweet, biscuit malt, soda cracker, and bold, grassy hops. Mouthfeel is low-medium, and Endless River finishes crisp and highly drinkable. RJT

So this is what a Kolsch tastes like. And I like it ok. I'm an IPA/stout guy but just wondering a bit. Give a try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2016
On tap at the random Argentinian food themed beer bar the spouse found in Charlotte on New Year’s for lunch. Pours clear gold, nice head. Aroma of crackery pale malts. Flavor matches, bare hint of a floral hop note on the finish, just enough to balance with bitterness, and a very faint hint of pear. Subtle and delicious, well done here.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6723) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Alisa brought this one back for me from a trip to North Carolina. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow colow with a small soapy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet, tangy, yeasty, lemon and grass. The flavor was tangy and sweet with perfume, grass and a yeasty undertone. Medium length finish. Light body. Pleasant.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2015
12oz bottle, purchased on 2/23/15 from Habersham in Savannah. Mostly clear golden color. Thin white head, kind of bubbly. Leaves good, thicker lace. Awesome bready, doughy malt. Kind of pilsner-like -- mildly peppery, and a satisfying bit of sulfur. Some corn. Mild bit of butteriness? Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Light to medium body, a touch thin. Light, but bright carbonation. Light slick finish. A pretty solid kolsch.
