This is my first kolsch, and if this is indicative of the style it really looks like I’m not going to be into it. Poured an almost transparent gold color (almost like a malt liquor), with a slightly grainy aroma and thick, rocky head. Taste was very bland, slightly sweet, mostly tasted like a macro...would’nt pick up again.

Oops, forgot for a moment what a Kolsch was and bought this to refresh my memory... of a beer style that I now recall I don’t particularly like. Oh, well. I guess this is a reasonable example of the style, pale and fizzy, tasting of hay and grain, mild and light and inoffensive. I wouldn’t walk across the street to drink it, however.

Light but lacking crispness. Would have upside on a hot summer day. A decent break from the current hops-dominated world.

Think fizzy head, little to no lacing and strong gold color. Citrus, hop notes. Flavor bold upfront but shallow. Very little malt or bittness. Kind of mild alchol taste on the front end. Not bad, not great. Wouldn’t buy again with more complex alternatives.

Das "Standard"-Kölsch. Sehr leicht trinkbar, aber keinesfalls besonderer Geschmack. Sehr spritzig und erfrischend, perfekt für warme Tage. Typisches Session-Bier von dem man einige an einem Abend trinken kann. Leichtes Fruchtaroma, Esternoten, etwas Sellerie. Im Aroma ganz leichte Frucht.

Hiero (163) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Served in a Kolsch glass. It has a nice, thick head that sticks around for a while. Very clear and clean with a good amount of carbonation. A grassy flavor is the main feature of this beer.

Draft at Pilsener Haus, 6/24/15
I was pretty surprised I’d never rated this one. One of those slipped through the cracks standards you find every now and again when rating. Light, solid aroma of fruit, a little sweet/pale malt, and some light hops. Light gold colored beer with a white head. Tastes leans sweet, but not cloying. Light and easy drinking with an average-to-lively carbonation. Maybe a hint thin. Decent enough, but nothing too exciting. Low ABV enough to drink a liter or 3...
