GarrettB (986) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Summer 2011 - It’s a day in Ft. Collins, and first up is O’Dell. And first up from O’Dell is their Kölsch. It features a thick, pillowy head with ample carbonation, and redolent with crystal and pils malt aromas. The beer proudly offers this same taste on the first sip, but cuts quick with a refreshing hop bite - a perfect way to start a day of beer tasting! A fluffy beer on the mouth, and light, and a lot of that mineral, carbonate taste that features so strongly in this category. A good, solid beer, a fine start to the day, and a nice staple to contrast with O’Dell’s more flamboyant beers.

dionysian_son (277) - Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Faint gold with white head. Nose with bitters and light citrus. Thin on the tongue but amazing flavor. Explodes with a complement of citrus, hay, and grass complementing the crisp bitter base of the kolsch. Wish this would be a bigger production.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2011
On tap @ Odell Brewery. Clear pale gold, corny wheaty aroma with a slight citric fruitiness. Taste was bready and toasty, with a bunch of fresh dough on the start, but finished softly citric. Pleasant and drinkable. But still very much a light bodied kolsh. Decent attempt, but still not a fan.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 On tap @ brewery. Clear, light yellow appearance with a big, fluffy white head. Mild german hoppy, crisp pale malty nose. Moderately noble hoppy, pretty bitter, grainy, pale malty lager flavor. Pretty bitter finish.
