Light and crisp. Nutty flavor in the malt along with a little spice. Skunky hops. I dug this, but I like Rocky River Brewing Co.'s Kolsch better. Overall a refreshing beer though.

light color with fast receding head. slightly toasty nose. Flavor is toasty, malty, and spicy. palate is light and crisp. More a suttle beer that overall is not too impressive but rather refreshing on a hot day.

Ah, the classics. Clear maize and thin headed, this is the prototype Kolsch. Elegantly malty, crisp and clean, this is the best in style I've found in the US. Makes me yearn for those "hot" summer days in Germany.

I don't really understand the Kolsch style. This simply tastes like a slightly better than average lager or pilsener. It's a fairly average brew overall, nothing to turn down but nothing to seek out either.

Paid $2.49 for a 500ml bottle. Very average golden with a small white head. Smells slightly grassy and nutty-- smells more like the stereotypical "dark" beer than a light one. Very average taste... A bit grassy, has hints of nuttiness, but nothing special. Well, there's another beer under my belt, so I guess it was worth it... but it wasn't anything to tell others about.

It has a darker shade of blond, small head. Very light malt and cereals aroma; the flavor too is simple, just light malt; ordinary bitterness. Boring.

Light blond color. Light carbonic aroma, and very light hop. Watery; poor taste. Quite bitter end, but no real feature.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - JAN 23, 2004
Medium gold color with a longlasting sudsy head and lots of carbonation. Mild aroma of strawberries, cherries. Light bodied and spritzy with a soda pop quality to it and a nondescript sweetness. The finish was sparse with some hoppy bitterness. I haven't run across many Kolsch beers and this looked interesting but it didn't really pan out.

Bottled. Golden with an ok head. Really hoppy aroma, and maybe peanuts(?). Fine nutty bitteness.

Golden coclor, white head. Aroms is from hops and with a sour feeling. Rather dry and sourish, with some hops in the flavor.

Bottled. Golden. Citrusy aroma. Crisp and rounded flavour with a pilsner malt profile.
