COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

The aroma is malty, toasted, spicy, flowers. The fllavor is just like the aroma. The appearance is the typical yellow. Medium in body. The finish is spicy hops. -interesting take on a style I don’t especially care for. Decent, especially for what it is. i

Pours a nice golden color, aroma smells like lake water. Taste is crisp and fizzy. Harsh malt with a biting hoppy presence. Nothing outstanding but very drinkable

Copper in color. Thin white head with constallation lacing. Citrusy aroma. There is some vanilla hiding in the aroma along with some peach. Creamy texture that is very smooth and refreshing. Light-bodied beer with good carbonation. This could be my new summer drinking beer. It is that smooth.

Mora2000 (5346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2011
The beer pours a yellow-gold color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the wheat and grain with not too much else going on. The flavor is more exciting. I get some grain and grass notes, as well as some bready malt and a little bit of grape characteristics. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Decent, but not as good as I was expecting it to be.

brenn79 (1429) - Idaho, USA - MAY 7, 2011
12 oz. bottle- Pours pale golden with a geyser of bubbles and very nice lacing, but too thin of a head. The aroma is crisp and clean, there is a lemony and very mellow hop aroma to it. The flavor is creamy, mellow, lemon, kind of floral. The carbonation is high, body is medium. Good summer chugger.

Tasted at home 5-6-2011 Aroma: Wonderfully floral, though it is a bit light. Appearance: Nice straw color but with minimum head retention. Taste: Extremely delicate. This was a joy to drink. Very light cereal body without feeling thin or astringent. The jasmine floral note is similar to a clover honey at times without being overly sweet. Surprisingly complex for it’s lightness. Palate: Tart, slightly biting body from the CO2, not overly full body. This seemed to fit the style well. Overall: Surprising beer. Complex but delicate. This was a real surprise and a very good beer.

GTAEgeek (1062) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 6, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Pours pale yellow with a medium white head. The aroma is straw, floral hops and honey. The flavor is tart and sweet at the beginning and malty and mildly bitter finish. The palate is powdery, lively carbonation, and light. Overall, a refreshing and subtly complex beer.

Bottle from the Summer Sampler pack. It poured a clear golden color with a thin white head. The aroma was fruity and bready. The taste was light crisp malt, a hint of biscuit, fruit and a some earthy hops on the finish. Not a bad brew.

Just as my friend from Pottsgrove enjoyed his Sam Adams summer sampler, I too found some new flavors in that case. This is one of the two new beers for me included in that sample case. This Kolsch is pretty tasty, smooth and drinkable, but not one to savor for the future. It has a robust and semi-floral flavor, but really lacks in most other taste departments. The finish leaves a metallic taste on my palate, which makes me want to wash it down with a Lager (which I’m about ready to do!).
