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.

Not much going on here. Very bland. In the smell and taste. Could be quenching. Not the best though.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy, lemon-gold, with a white, tight head that lasts a while. Smells slightly sweet (like brown sugar) with hints of lemon and banana. Taste is medium sweet but I can’t really identify any particular flavors. It has a medium body with a slightly creamy texture. Carbonation seems a bit high, and the finish is long and sweet.. Overall, I would consider this a "people-pleaser" beer. It’s a bit sweet and doesn’t have any off-putting flavors. However, it also means there’s nothing unique about this beer and therefore has no identity. Basically, this is the kind of beer that you have at your backyard barbecue because you know almost everyone will like it. But it’s not necessarily one that you’d tout to your beer friends.

Bottle from Walmart. Slightly cloudy gold. Better than most Kolschs that I’ve tried. Crisp and bitter.

OnTheTrail (288) - Virginia, USA - APR 10, 2016
Pours pale yellow, good sized white head. Aroma is spicy and malty. Taste is a pleasant balance of spice, malt an d light hops. Reasonably enjoyable, even in Springtime.

Metalchopz (2992) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2016
Purchased in Vermont in their Cabin selection 12-pack. Pours a slight hazed golden-yellow colour with a frothy white head, good retention and creamy lacing. Citrus aromas with light malt. Caramel malt flavours with some decent hops in the finish. The grain cereal lingers. A nice Limited Release, but not something I would go would go out of my way to grab.

chinchill (3894) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2016
12 oz bottle in Florida. Large off-white head over a hazy golden body. The aroma has a nice interplay of hops and malts with some lemony and spicy notes. Strong and hoppy flavor for style. The label does say it’s a hybrid, and that’s quite clear in the flavor, as is the success of this tasty, lemony "kolsch".

ordybill (1171) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly yeast. The taste is a mildly bitter wheat / yeast taste. A good beer

Pours a medium-bright straw, significant carbonation and a soap-suds head. Malt aroma. Caramel malt taste with some dry grain flavor. Sticky mouthfeel and a dry, slightly spicy aftertaste.

I poured it from the bottle into a dimpled mug. It pours golden with a fluffy and white head and nice lacing. The aroma was a little weak with hints of grass, lemon, other fruit, and yeast. The taste was lemon, bread, grain, and hints of other fruit. It was creamy. This was decent but kind of forgettable.
