Very clear and crisp. An authentic flavor with that hint of wheat grist, crisp and refreshing. Good summertime beer.

crisp and refreshing especially on hot days. Nothing impressive but a solid and tasty Koelsch!

Aroma is lemon, pale wheat, yeast and sweet, buttery malts. The aroma just screams Kolsch, and it’s one of my favorite lager styles, I’m down with it. It smells very inviting. Touch of cloves. The straw yellow look won’t inspire too much salivation, although the carbonation is surprisingly strong, making it more than your typical pale lager. The lemon zest beautifully compliments the buttery malts. There is a touch of citrus orange, very slight. A surprising amount of body. Well-bodied but not fizzy; it’s smooth and buttery. As far as a summery lager goes, this one is on the mark.

Easily, one of the better sessionable, summertime beers that you can get. Pyramid does this one up right, and year after year it’s a quality, easy drinking beer. I’d bought a case of this stuff to share with my brother and his neighbors (who are all Bud Light fans) and this one went over extremely well with them. A very easy, subtle aroma of citrus and sweet malts. Appearance is light yellow in color, lightly cloudy with a nice evervescent foamy head. Mouthfeel is light, bubbly, with a sharp carbonated bite. Flavor is lightlly fruity, sweet with a very light hop bite to keep it all even. Is this an exciting beer? No. But it’s well made, enjoyable on a hot, sweltering day and it’s tasty enough without any flaws to be enjoyed multiple times over.

My idea of a good summer beer a little boring but there are times when one would prefer a very clean flavored beer. Nice hops notes

8/15/07 From the bottle. Aroma is very low, yeasty, with caramel and very light sulfur. Appearance is clear dark yellow with a moderate white head. Flavor is sweet malt forward, almost wheaty, with low bittering and some light fruit esters. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a medium carb feel and a very dry finish. Overall, good and to style. Not exciting, but refreshing and easy drinking.
