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!

GTAEgeek (1409) - 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.

obxdude10 (2107) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2011
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!).

DocLock (8424) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Bottle from summer sampler. Pours deep gold with clingy white head. Nose is pale malt, honey, floral. Tastes crisp, with a front end pale malt, some honey, and the lflorals and hops hitting at the back of the throat.

bleeng (1565) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2011
12 oz bottle from the summer sampler. Pale yellow and clear with a small dissipating head. Nose is mild malty viennish type malts. Taste is clean and crisp, with a taste a bit milder (or tamer) than the typical German Kolsch. Good clean summer beer that does not offend.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2011
bottle. Pours pale gold with slight tint of orange and white head. Very mild aroma of butter, flowers. Medium bodied. Flavor is nice crisp and refreshing as a kolsch should be, with tones of hay and the jasmine giving the finish a nice floral, slight bitterness. A good kolsch, and my favorite beer out of the summer mix pack.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a light gold color with a small, white head. The nose has some light jasmine notes and a some florals. The flavor has a pale malt note and that jasmine. I would have liked a bit more hop character here. I am not sure this truly fits as a Kolsch. Light to medium body with average carbonation and a slightly floral finish. Okay but nothing to write home about.

RedSox2004 (1411) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 30, 2011
Clear bright yellow with a moderate white head and modest lacing. Grainy aroma with floral notes from the jasmine, backed by a biscuit maltiness. Bready malts form the foundation of the flavor profile, with subtle floral hops and tart apple present. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, and a crisp finish.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - APR 30, 2011
Bottle from the summer sample pack. Poured a hazy gold color with a smaller white head. Aroma was malts, grass, and citrus. Flavor was much of the same, citrus, malts and bread. Very thin and weak. Average at best.
