Pours a clear straw colour with a big frothy head. Aromas of grassy hops and pears. Light taste of malt and citrus with a nice hop finish. Very drinkable.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2004
Very fizzy with a light lager color. Dry, lagerish taste with some sweetness and not much hops. A letdown.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2004
Floral aroma of hops. Usual appearance golden with a decent foamy head. Fairly nutty taste with flora and citruss in the finish. A bit petroly though. Not my favourite Kolsch.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Clear golden color with a foamy white head. Grainy, almost wheaty aroma with hints of lemon. Some earthy grain flavors with hints of lemon and grassy. Crisp, dry and bitter finish.

BBB63 (6474) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2004
Bottled: Clear straw hue with frothy and rocky head, very good lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and noble hops, light apple and pears, toasted buttery malts, and a wheaty ester. The taste is a smooth mild bitterness with undertones of sublime citrus and subdued malts. A touch of very light smoke and lingering bitters on the finish. The feel is clean and crisp, very smooth and quaffable. A excellent session bier, nothing big or bold but well crafted.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2004
Clean grassy hopped aroma over a totally clear golden brew with a nice white head. Taste is very clean and refreshing, a bit fruity with a great hopped finish. Very drinkable and tastefully simple. One hell of a good summer day brew.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2004
I had this on tap first and honestly thought I was drinking a lager. Nice look, refreshing mouth-fill, and slides down easily. Later I had a bottle from Archer Liquors. Same easy, likeable drink. I have to do more Kolsches. I apparently, hop-head that I be, enjoy them.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Cast in a clear,light golden hue, possessing a big, creamy white head that slides assuredly down to a slim ring. Aroma is mild,spare, green apples and pears, grassy, lemony, but anything else would be a reach. Taste: nice, tasty hop appearance at the fore, with a definite citric snap, then fading, though giving a nice glide off of the palate. Pears and apples again in the flavor,light,dry fruits, crisp and subtle. Kolschs are such a light, delicate style that it is sometimes difficult to discern the differences between authentic examples. This is a nice one, but not top of the heap. Superlative thirst-quencher, though, easy to appreciate in the dog days of August!

egajdzis (5622) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2004 Poured a golden color with a small white head and very little lacing on the glass. Wheat, citrus fruits and a nice earthy aroma. Taste was full of spice, citrus fruits and nice sweet malts. Carbonated very nicely, just a touch light. This was quick, dry, and easy.

On tap at the Rathskeller in Indianapolis. Has a light gold color with a smal head. The aroam is a slight lemon zest with a littel dirt. The taste is also light with white bread and some peaches. A decent kolsch, but not the best I have had.
