Really light and thin. I really expected the worst from this beer, but I was surprised. Light yellow, with a white head. Not bad, Not great. This beer would be great in the summer.

Very light gold color with a pure white head which is moderately lasting. Aroma is of pilsner malt and some german hops. Mouthfeel is really smooth and ends very crisp and dry. A classic example of the style.

Light golden coloured. Weak and light aroma and flavour. Notes of corn in the aroma. Refreshing.

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 At the Brauerei Ausschank, July 2011. Bright yellow with a lasting and very white head. Aroma of fruit, malt, herbal hops and DMS. Sweet and full bodied, fruity and spicy hoppy flavur, with a good bitter finish.

Bottle. A very good kolsch, the dryest I have come across, and very quaffable. I should put my cards on the table and admit I am a big kolsch fan, and this is one of the best. It seems slightly fizzier than some, which lends a peppery quality to the flavour, and allows the bitterness to cascade over the back of your throat. I wish I had been able to try it druaght in Cologne...

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 24, 2003
50 cL bottle, pint glass, 48 degrees F. Large, white, foamy head is quickly diminishing. Very light straw colored body is crystal clear. Grainy, light bread malt (L); flowery, grassy hops (L); light apple aroma. Lightly sweet throughout with a lightly bitter, lightly grainy finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. The bottom line is: yawn...

Bottle. Very light beer with a white head. Not a great appearance, but the aroma was quite nice. Sort of a malty cherry. The taste is nothing special, but it's not bad either. A bit of hop and kinda sweet. I enjoyed it but I wouldn't go out of my way to get it.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2010 New rating: 2/24/2010: My first rating was #133, back in 2003. Now that I know a little more about Kölsch, time for a re-rate: Sweet malt smell in pour, not much hops to it, just lighter than pilsener. Pale gold color, just a few bubbles twinkle along the glass. Light taste. Kind of saccharine, but that’s what I’ve been finding in my Goose Summertime too. Maybe this summer style just doesn’t age too well. Not much in the way of hops, though there is a slightly fruity ester. This may have gone down better on my back porch in the summer, instead of in my basement after another snowfall. But I just seem to like this less the second time around. Original rating, 11/11/03: 6-3-7-3-13:
Malty, with a kind of raw grainy texture to it. A pleasing extra kick of hops.

Pale yellow body with a thin, but persistent, fluffly, white head. The aroma is light and sweet with grassy malt. An average body for the style, but it's still quite thin. The flavor profile starts sweet and slightly toasted, but finishes with a bitter (and slightly sour) kick. An interesting kölsch, but it's just not my thing. Worth trying though.

Toasty sweet nose from a golden beer, light on carbonation. Sweet and toasty malts are pleasing, as is the light germanic hoppy finish, medium bodied and quite the thirst quencher!
