KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a clear pale gold in color with a huge (3-4 finger) white fluffy head that was mostly diminishing and had some fair sticky lacing. The aroma was of light grain and straw malts, floral and grassy hops and a funky soapy yeast, and had a hint of spice and a mild citrus (lemon) presence. The taste had a nice light crisp grainy malt flavor with a very mild, almost undetectable citrus note early on, with the taste becoming mildly bitter and a tad hoppy and having just a bit of spiciness at the end. The flavor lasted a short time proceeding the swallow with a slight mild bitterness left behind. Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery texture and a tickly carbonation. Overall a very nice tasting Kölsch, that had a nice bold flavor with a slightly mild bitterness. This was an extremely enjoyable and satisfying brew for this style...

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

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 (312) - 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.

mikedR (1453) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Drinkable and solid. Slightly sweet. Deviates from the Kolsch standard -- perhaps that’s why they say "Kolsch style." Nevertheless, enjoyable for a low ABV beer.

andrewje41 (978) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Draft pour. Pours light with little to no head. Flavor is mostly corn with a lot of grassy, earthy flavors as well. Nothing too much stands out from this one. Very plain. It was very much drinkable, but I’ll call it just okay.

I am a fan of Kolsch and Kolsch style ales. Goose Island makes a pretty good one. However Freya’s Gold does not live up to my expectations. FG pours a lite golden color with a think white head. It is nice and bubbly on the tongue. It is lite enough that if you were looking to quench a thirst you could chug this. However it seems to have a slightly off putting musty almost skunky aftertaste. Maybe I just got a bad bottle, but with all the great beers out there I’m not likely to come back and give it another chance.

8/28/2012. From bottle. Golden yellow with a white head. Malt and caramel aromas with light fruit, spice and earthy notes. Medium carbonation, caramel flavors and light hops on the finish.
