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!

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!).

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 (1510) - 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 (3046) - 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 (1228) - 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.

nick76 (4209) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2011
The aroma is light with malt, grass, yeast, and something strange that I am guessing is the Jasmine. The appearance is pale gold with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall a drinkable summer brew but not really that great.

A - Pours a clear golden-orange color with thin layer of white head atop. The head fades quickly leaving behind a touch of lace. S - Aroma is a mix of roasted spicy caramel malts and deeper bready malts. There is also a bit of a grassy/floral scent in the mix. T - Starts off with some sweet caramel malt flavor and some background sweetness that is a touch frity/cirtusy. A touch of floral flavors also present. Through the middle, some spices and a bit of hops come out. Also the floral flavors get a bit stronger. The finish is a mix of caramel sweetness and even a bit of biscuit, and just a touch of grass that lingers. M - Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. The finish is really dry and refreshing. Maybe culd have used a bit more flavor but it does not feel empty or watery. D - Very drinkable. The flavors are nice and complex enough and stay really balanced throughout. Really enjoyable balance. Just wish it had a tad more body.
