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!

Two bottles of this in a "Summer Flavors" 12-pack Pours a just a wee bit more golden than the typical straw color of a macro. Minimal head that rapidly dissipates. Flowery nose. Tastes is bitterness that overpowers any other flavors. The bitterness lingers. Beer is supposed to be bitter, but not like this. If my screen name wasn’t meant to be ironic, I would drink this abomination all the time.

DYCSoccer17 (3637) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
12 ounce bottle out of a mixed summer 12 pack purchased at Woodland, CA Nugget. The aroma is sweet and sugary, and not really reminiscent of a kolsch. Lacks any sort of grassiness or mineral or lemon character. Transparent yellow body present with a small to medium white head. Starts a little spicy, before this becomes a bit sweet, and overly cloying. Mouthfeel is too thick for the style. Light herbal hop hints and a touch of grass. Lightly astringent. Lacks hops. This is more of a pale lager than a kolsch.

Pours pale yellow into a Sam glass. Bright white micro head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Cereal and hay aromas. Dry with sweet grass from front to back. Lasting slightly bitter finish.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2011
12 oz. bottle. The beer pours golden out of the bottlewith lots of rising bubbles, and a medium creamy white head. I sense a light citrus and floral aroma with some vanilla, light spice, cereal grains. The flavor is mildly crisp, some graininess, light hop impressions. There is a fair amount of citrus and floral notes. Light bodied, effervescent carbonation. Finishes crisp. This is not exactly what I’d call a definitive example of a kolsch, but more importantly it’s a beer I’d consider middling and unspectacular at best.

Suttree (6099) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Hazy gold, spongy head. Crisp, lightly fruity aroma. Flavor is a little bit toasty, a little bit fruity. A few stale notes, too. Also, did anyone else taste strawberry? I tasted a little bit of strawberry. On tap, BBM.

Pours a medium gold, medium foam, light spotty lacing .. . light honey and medium spice, why spice a kolsch? .. . very light crispness, no doughiness .. . what the heck is this? .. . a light refresher that isn’t necessarily a bad beer by any means but no character whats so ever ... . i told her she was fat- no! no!

poisoneddwarf (2296) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - MAY 12, 2011
12 oz bottle into lager glass. Bought the summer variety pack at a local supermarket. Pours gold with a medium white head with pretty good retention; leaves a thick blanket of foam and some lace. Aroma is very floral; also, somewhat spicy. Taste is mostly sweet with a faint bitterness hanging around in the background. Has a grainy taste. Medium-high carbonation with a medium body. A fairly simple beer, but simple is sometimes just what the mood calls for.
