Modeled after the bright, beautiful ales of Koln, our interpretation has a clean, crisp, malt character similar to a pilsner. The authentic Kolsch yeast strain pairs perfectly with our unique blend of aromatic Noble hops from Germany.

mcberko (8403) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle sampled at B’s Craft Beer Lounge, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out crackery malt and light citrus zest. Flavour is fairly lame, with light crackery malt, a little citrus, and hay. Pretty watery but pleasant enough. Boring but competent blonde.

Joakgust (1074) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle. Semi hazy blonde beer with a large white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, bread, sulfur, herbs and oranges. Flavor is malty with notes of citrus, caramel, bread, herbs and hay. More kellerbier than a kölsch because of the strong sulfur notes.

loubar (142) - Los Gatos, California, USA - DEC 21, 2014
UPDATED: APR 2, 2015 12 oz. bottle from Lunardi’s Market. Nose of corn and yeast. Taste of corn and grain with a mild graham cracker sweetness. Lingering bitterness on the finish. Flavor a bit strong but good balance. Easy drinking. A little like a pilsner. Not as crisp or clean as some Kolschs, but not bad.

Can. Tastes like creamy corn, straw, light floral and sweet citrus, doughy malt. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like corn, doughy malt, light grass, floral, and citrus notes.

Surprised this ain’t a little higher. Not that I loved it or anything, but wasn’t turrible even next to some big ol tasty beers. Good for the style for sure. Crisp and clean with enough flavor to not be boring.

marcus (7179) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 9, 2014
On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours clear blonde with a modest white head and a light floral aroma. There is a medium-bodied pilsner flavor with a crisp bitter finish. Very refreshing.

Very pale colour with visible fizz. Head quickly disappears leaving a slight laciness. Slightly too fizzy for me with a bitter aftertaste. (K)

SoberDave (171) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Pours clear blonde with bubbly head. Wasn’t super impressed with it. Simple aroma, simple flavor. See now it’s crafted similar to a pilsner so bumped the grade up a bit but not much to it. Refreshing.

Can at AA. Nose is lemon, bread, quite clean. Light lemony flavor, nice light bitterness, authentic and crisp, and enjoyable Kolsch.
