This golden, straw-colored ale is light in body with subtle fruit flavors and a crisp, floral hop finish.

Draft at Rock Bottom Cincinnati. Pours a pale yellow, somewhat cloudy, with a small white head. Notes of pale and bready and crackery malts, straw, and very faint florals and lemon citrus. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Okay Kolsch, but there are better ones to be had across town at MadTree.

rondphoto (1545) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 18, 2014
on tap @ Rock Bottom / Cincinnati OH --- Nearly clear light amber, thin rim head, small splotches of lace. Taste is wheat and malt with a touch of lemon citrus in the palate. It moves quickly to the finish with light effervescence to balance. This is a good light brew, but it doesn’t have the qualities necessary to be a kolsch.

Light fuzzy yellow beer with slight hops and fruit flavors. When on special at Rock Bottom I’m drinking it.

ajnepple (1674) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2014
On tap at Rock Bottom Denver. Gold and clear with a white head and lacing. Mild aroma of floral notes, lemons, orange peel, crisp hops and pale malts. Similar flavor, mild sweetness and bitterness. Light body, easy to drink. Solid kölsch.

Lubiere (9430) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
A golden kolsch with a thin white head. In aroma, crisp German malt with light grassy German hops, OK. In mouth, a crisp biscuit malt with grassy German hops, boring. On tap at RB Chicago.

Azand222 (170) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Draft. Clear yellow color with a light white fizzy head. Light fruit in the aroma, overall mild. The taste is empty bodied, with a water mouth feel. Light fruity notes, with a light hop finish. Overall not a terrible beer, boring.

jmagnus87 (2220) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Draft. From notes. Malt and bread. Wow, this is super boring. I’m not really a fan of Kolsh, but this is not good.

shrubber85 (6978) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2013

rosenbergh (6096) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2013
Draught at the Rock Bottom, Chicago, IL. 5.0%.
Slightly hazy yellow colour with a small white head. Mild fruity hops and malt in an easy aroma. Some grassy hops, mild bitterness, malt and mild yeast in the flavour. Watery.
