COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Escaping from winter’s darkness, this hazy golden, unfiltered Kölsch style creates a fresh start. Our take on the classic hybrid style grom Cologne, Germany, combines the subtle fruit notes of an ale with the smooth crispness of a lager for a bright, refreshing brew to help escape those lingering cold days.

HonkeyBra (3906) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a medium white body. Decent lacing. Aroma of Samuel Adams Yeast, mild fruitiness, bread. Flavor is crisp, bright, fruity and bready with a crisp finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes crisp. Nice Kolsch.

jsporrer (310) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy medium dirty amber with a thin white ring. Bready yeast aroma. Medium carbonation. Starts crisp then flavor falls flat quickly. Coats the tongue with a bland bready taste that disappears quickly. Not harsh or bitter but not very refreshing or enjoyable.

obguthr (5095) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Hay aroma, some plastic. Hazy amber, thin head. Hay, light dandelion and plastic. Light body, moderate carbonation. True to style, a little industrial.

MarkBarnes (400) - Waterville, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Jan. 11, 2016; 12 oz. bottle from SA sampler 12-pack. Despite this nondeScript, summery brew not getting any love here, it’s much better than a couple of the other offerings remaining untouched in this Winter sampler.

malvrich (159) - durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle from Cabin Pack mixed 12 pack Box Stamped Enjoy by May, 2016 Actual bottle stamped 3475 so bottled on 12/1315 Into a Reisdorf stange. A: Pours a turbulent finger high beige head. Slightly murky dark gold color with busy carbonation. S: Dry scent of crisp white crackers and a touch of dry white wine grape. T: Dry as expected with a starchy cracker bite. Grassy hop note is Echoes the white wine from the nose. Dry crisp, but strong tasting. M: Light and very effervescent. Very easy-drinking. O: Overall pretty good example of a Kolsch if not exceptional. Two in a pack is OK but I would not be interested in purchasing six packs.

monkeychugg55 (991) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Hazy yellow with a small head. The aroma is light, sweet malt, and some fruitiness from the yeast. Flavor is malt, some mellow esters. Not bad, but not much going on, but drinkable.

Not a bad beer at all. A Kolsch from Samuel Adams! Good, but it’s too bad they refuse to brew anything above 5% alcohol.

hotstuff (4645) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Rated on 12-11-2015 (Bottle) This beer’s appearance is a medium sized white head that mostly diminished, yellow hazy body, fizzy and very lively carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is grainy, fruity and malt. The flavor is grainy, citrus, light spice, and crisp. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable beer but it is not all that great tasting and an easily forgettable beer.
