COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cybercat (4899) - Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Pours clear golden with a fairly thick and frothy porcelain head. Aroma presents malty, banana and pear tones. Flavor offers fresh malt, apple and banana, and adds in some resiny hop character. Mouthfeel features decent body and lively fizz. Aim for one.

16 oz can shared with ebone1988 from Dumpster Box No. 2. The pour is a nice golden yellow with a larger white head that falls down to a collar. The aroma is very kolsch like. There is a heavy bright golden ale aroma to it. It's bright and somewhat decent. This should be interesting. The flavor is crisp and light. The able is much more blonde than it is kolsch. There is a heavy blonde influence. It's just not that great. The mouth feel is light and crisp with that big blonde influence that I'm not crazy about. If this were actually a kolsch it'd be pretty good, but it's way too much blonde. The aftertaste is lingeringly sweet Belgian yeast and it's not okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ebone1988 (1184) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Can shared with koleminer20, out of Dumpster Day box #2. Aroma is light as fuck, light sweetness, light corn, not much else. Appearance is golden, hazy, white head. Taste is light, banana, clove, water, metallic, nothing. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, crisp carbonation, lager-y aftertaste. Overall, this isn’t great.

ciocanelu (1004) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 22, 2015
Slightly hazy, straw color with white head. Aroma has bready malt and a bit of honey sweetness. Taste follows with the same notes, clean, slightly malty and just some hops to balance it out. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Body is on the light side, crisp and refreshing. Overall it’s a nice, easy drinking session ale.

Gonna rate before there are any changes due to merger or takeover what ever. This is a good blonde, remember it is a kolsche. So some sweetness in aroma, very clear yellow but not white piss yellow like their owne s brews. Flavor is lager like clean and crisp. Great beach brew if weren’t for glass bottle.

maekchu (3323) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 27, 2015
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Nose of corn, grass, light sewer, tiny hopping. Thin pale straw color. Pils-like maltiness, bready, grassy, and some bitter tracks in finish (stronger than the aftertaste in most blondes). Thin-medium body. Fairly refreshing, but somewhat bland.
