Our version of the traditional German Kolsch style is fragrant and complex. The Alsation hop we chose imparts a subtle citrus note. Jasmine Sambac, a night blooming Southeast Asian flower, adds a delicate floral aroma and flavor to this layered and refreshing brew. Cheers!

Not bad for a Kolsch but not my favorite either. It was a little too sticky at the end for me.

This was a good beer, but didn’t particularly stand out in the summer pack. Not terribly complex, but good for a meal or at any social gathering where you don’t need to pay attention to your beer. Good summer brew.

Sweet, fruity, and malty. Light and floral with a huge fizzy white head. Smooth finish. A good summer beer.

Straw yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of malt, light fruit, plae malt, light yeast and mild lemon. Taste is sweet and malty with light yeast, mild citrus and lemon and finishes up clean. Kinda bland but ok.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a small fizzy white head that left minimal lacing. The nose is very light, just a touch of bready malt and little to no hops. Smells a little grainy as well. The flavor is light as well, some soggy pale grains, a little doughy malt, some minimal bitterness on the finish. Pretty lacking in crispness. Light bodied and a bit watery with fizzy carbonation. Below the standard for these guys. Not one that I cared for.

Pours transparent straw with short lasting soapy head and some turbidity. Aroma mostly of malt, bread and a faint floral/citrus. Taste is not overpowering and malty at first, then a grassy/crisp aftertaste. Easy to drink, pretty good kolsch.

Nice golden color like a white wine. Taste wasvery floral like a typical Kolsch. I was never a big fan of this style, but it beats drinking a Heiny!

medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lively carbonation, medium-full body but goes down easy. Really creamy texture, spicy going down, then a very bready finish and aftertaste.

Bottle at Sander’s place, NYC during an evening of heavy drinking. Pours clear gold with a fine, white foam of a head. Nose is all pale malts, white bread. Medium to strong sweet flavor, very bready, but not cloying at all. There are notes of faint berries and light bitterness. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish, faintly toasty, more bready malts, mostly white bread. Very sessionable lager. Yeah, very drinkable.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Not nearly as good as some of the native kolsch styles I’ve had in the past, but a pretty good effort from this side of the ocean. Properly dry and a nice foamy head are two of the good points I can recall.
