COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the traditional kölsch beers of Cologne, Germany, Freya’s Gold is clean, crisp and refreshing. Delicate lemony hop flavors compliment the smooth body of our most quaffable beer. Just like its namesake, Freya’s Gold has a wealth of suitors.

On tap @ Odin Tap Room. Nice golden pour with a soapy white head. A little on the grainy and sweet cereal side. Some notes of bread, grass, and apple, too. There’s a fairly light hop character and sort of a minimal bitterness, but actually seems perhaps a bit husky. Eh.

DuffMan (8057) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 19, 2015
Bottle, shared at the lake with Parksy and others on May long weekend. Medium gold, average white head. Grainy profile, a bit sweet, a touch of yeast, but pretty bland. Not awful, just dull.

Clear golden with a white head. Malty with fruit and a crisp noble profile. Clean mouth. Easy kolsch. Highly enjoyable if you enjoy the style.

MunBro (821) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2015
Nice golden straw color, thin fizzy head. No lacing. Nice light, easy drinking beer with notes of honey, straw, and floral notes. Mild spicy grassiness. Yum!

Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 05.07.14. A: Straw yellow. Completely see through. 1/2 finger head. S: Flower, honey. Sweet smelling. O: This smelled like a good summer beer. It was way too watery though. Actually, it could be better described as water with a slight sweetness to it. There was very little flavor to it, so it was a drain pour.

On tap. Pours clear light straw. Moderate head that flattens out, lots of glass coating lacing. Smell is grassy, lemon dish soap and slight hop. Taste is clean with some lighter grass notes, some lemon with some mild hop for balance. Easy drinking but light on flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ilsaconsume (11) - Washington, USA - AUG 4, 2014
A bitter tang of hoppiness and very little complexity. Not much going on here for a craft beer. Gorgeous pour with a lovely full head. Reminded me of your buddy’s early home brew.

furthur (455) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle pour, top pop sounded like it had lots of pressure. Huge white foamy head over light amber body. Aroma is lager like, with a hint of saison. Taste is mostly light malt and hops bitter, a bit of spice, or carbonation. Body is light, ample carbonation. Finish us clean bitter. Just not much going on here, kinda boring.

timber09 (5) - kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2014 does not count
A real simple but very nice brassy golden/bronze body, clear with some mix of rising cola fast carbonation and slow rising pin head bubbles. White rock head settles nicely and slowly, with some ring like lacing. Very beautiful looking Kolsch.
