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!

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.

Butters (3789) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2011
Sampled from the bottle out of a summer variety pack. Sweet almost grapefruity citrus flavor. Not exactly what I think of as clasically kolsh, but still a decently tasting light bodied brew. Grainy dryness, but not like a typical graininess. Good stepping stone beer i’d think.

thechandler (577) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2011
Pours a nice golden color, Aroma is slightly bready, but nice. Flavor isn’t quite as spectacular. Light grains, not a tremendous amount of hop flavor, maybe a flutter of grass notes. Overall not bad. Certainly drinkable.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2011
12 oz beer. Pours a nice clear gold with lacy off-white head (I would have expected white head given the color of the beer, but it is a few shades darker than stark white). The aroma is slightly peppery with notes of lemon, strawberry, pear, and maybe even watermelon seed. The flavor is gentle malt with a bit of a fruity accent--white grapes, honeydew melon, maybe a slight lemon zest. The finish has a little bit of a dry tang to it, making it fairly refreshing. Easy drinkin’.

dchmela (2647) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2011
From the Summer Sampler pack. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Fruity, bready aroma. Taste is light crisp malt, touch of biscuit, fruit and a punch of earthy hops on the finish. A nice warm weather beer.

adnielsen (9285) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle @ home. Golden appearance with good carbonation and a white head. Pale malty, lightly grainy and fruity, lager nose with mild German hops. Well carbonated, lightly citrusy fruity, a touch floral, pretty full body for a pale lager. Well carbonated.

geeklimit (197) - USA - APR 24, 2011
Pours very clear and very carbonated. Yellow color with a head that sticks to the glass but dissipates quickly over a minute or two. Nice hop aroma, if a bit faint. Light and easy hop taste with little bitterness. Slight bitter aftertaste. Slightly creamy and very effervescent on the tongue - actually made me cough from so much fizzing at first.

thegreenrooster (3241) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2011
Pour is a bright gold with a large white head. Aroma is bready\grainy with a grassy hop. Flavor is floral with a decent dry cracker malt. Very clean finish and low bitterness. A decent rep of the style.

TheBeerGod (5284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2011
Bottle. Amber bodied with a short, dense eggshell white head. Flowery and fruity nose with light grains and sweet malt notes. Taste is sweet malt, grains, bread, light flowery notes and dried fruit. Biscuits in spots as well as honey. Body is medium with a lively, moderate carbonation. Ends with more grains, sweet malt, bread, honeyed and buttered biscuit and flowers.

kidmartinek (3728) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2011
Crystal clear light golden brew. Very good pure, white head. Aroma slightly fruity and gummy, with perhaps some blooming flower notes. Refreshing character and taste. Well balanced but starts more hoppy and finnishes with a slightly grassy malt. Draws down clean. Finishes cool, but with a texture a bit heavy for a kolsch style.
