Very clean, slightly grainy aroma. Light yellow/gold color with a thin layer of head and touches of lace. Clean flavor leaning toward sweetness. Aftertaste was a good balance of grain, sweetness, and hops. Restrained carbonation, medium bodied with a very good mouthfeel. Overall, a very light and delicate, easy drinking beer Well balanced and executed.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2005
5ooml bottle. Pale yellow with no head. Hoppy aroma. First sip and I’m thinking "not another damn pilsener..’ Tasted like a budweiser that hadn’t been watered down. Second half of the bottle was better. The malts peeked through and the hops settled down. Decent beer but I wouldnt buy it again.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 17, 2005
Bottle. Pale yellow with a frothy white head. Lightly tart green apple aroma with grainy notes. Fruity and lightly acidic flavours with a light corn-like taste in there as well. Light bodied, very soft and pleasing mouthfeel.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2005
Uniform, but loose sudsy white head that persisted for some time. Crystal clear golden yellow body with medium carbonation. Fresh grainy and natural buttery malt aroma. Also has a subtle nuttiness, a light floral note of Noble hops, and some green grape character. A touch of apple in the flavor with mild acidity that increases and takes on a lemony quality. Quite dry. Body is light and bubbly. Crisp and refreshing but a bit too bland to hold much interest. Fair beer. Boring style.

jefcon (1592) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2005
Light and golden with little head. Aromas of clove honey, maple and apple. Sour finish with a sharp barley/rice taste. Kind of astringent. This beer was mild throughout.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2005
Pale golden yellow with a small white head and tons of very tiny yeast particles suspended throughout. Aroma is sweet grass, fruity yeast (apple, pear), sweet pale malt, and mild spicy hops. Light bodied. Taste is a crisp sweet light malt followed by a fruity yeast, spicy hops, bitter grass, light pepper, and a light molasses. Finishes quite dry with notes of sweet cereal malt, grassy hops, and a bit of fruity sweetness.

bottle-long story with this. My girlfriend came over for the basketball games and pizza. I poured this beer just before she got to my place. We started making out and then i knocked this beer over onto my carpet. Now i have Kolsch fragrance carpet! anyways, this beer pours a golden yellow with a small sudsy white head around the rim of the glass. Lemongrass, spicy hops, malt husks. This is a nice crisp kolsch with equal parts malt husks, german spicy hops and that hay flavor. well balanced and a good palate. would make an awesome lawnmower beer. Looks like i will be getting another bottle in CO when im up there this week!

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2005
Bottled. Grainy aroma with skunky hops. Not that it’s bad but these aroma I get too much from mediocre German beers. Pale yellow color, white head that diminishes completely, no lace. Grainy start, light malty, rather hopbitter which turns into a metallic bitterness. Very light. Again, it’s not bad but no joy to drink it either.

My first Kolsch. Pours pale gold with thick, frothy head -- lasts forever. Aromas of hay, malt, grass and meadow. Flavor is a complex melange of hops (but not bitter), herbs, and hay, with just a hint of malt and barley. Wonderful with a ham sandwich. They know a good thing in Cologne
