COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden sparkling blond ale was brewed to pay homage to a 1000-year tradition rooted in Cologne, Germany. Clear, crisp and easy to drink, the Kolsch of today is lighter than the "House" beer that was served in Cologne 200 years ago - the city that made Kolsch famous. We hope you’ll enjoy it!

Poures straw like with a very thin white head. Smells of grass and wheat shined through. Tased too orangey for a kolsch.

Lubiere (12765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2005
Golden beer with a creamy white head. Faint grassy malt in aroma. In mouth, crisp malt, and light hops, more like a non-descript lager. Lighter bodied. Not impressed by this.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Pretty golden brew with a big bubbled, snow white head. Lightly flavored, lightly hopped, I’m lightly impressed. Pleasant, refreshing, goes down quickly, but not before the head dissapeared. A big thirst required two bottles to quench and still no aftertaste, still no defining characteristic

I’ve never had a kolsch beer ..... so i don’t know what this should taste like. But standing alone ...... tihs beer doesn’t stand up. Very sweet and flavorless. Poor finish because of the lingering sweetness. I’m interested in what a good kolsch beer tastes like.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Pours a clear pale yellow with a nice amount of froathy white head. Aroma is sweet hay, slight hops, and sweet malts. Flavor is very light and crisp, sweet malts, with grassy notes and a crisp, but not overpoweringly hoppy dry finish. Overall, the beer was a little watery, as many Matt’s beers are, but I found it to be very enjoyable, especially for a hot summer night. Definitely underrated.

shrubber85 (10524) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle. Mild maple syrup aroma. Light amber color with little head. Sweet syrup and corn flavor. Little body - not much of a resemblance to it’s German namesake.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Poured an effervescent pale gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma of corn and hops. Taste is thin and lifeless... touch of corn with a smidgen of hops and the usual dry toffee finish. Not pleasant.

Borrrris (110) - LINDENHURST, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Bottle. Summer Beers 2005 sampler pack. A second or third place winner by default in a disappoining assortment of Saranacs. At least it wasn’t one of the three "flavored" beer-beverages. Kinda forgettable, but at least an honest try at a popular priced rendition of a non-mainstream beer style. Slightly creamy mouthfeel helps give the impression that it has a darker and heavier body than it actually does. BUY AGAIN? Probably not individually, but fine as part of a sampler.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 8, 2005
Clear brass body with a small bone-white head. Smell is heavy, perfumy, peach, yeast. Taste is roasted barley, caramel, corn. Rater disturbing beer.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Poured a medium gold color with a one finger head, fairly lively carbonation and a light bready aroma. Light to medium bodied with a malty flavor, a little caramely with a noticeable bitterness into the finish. Not really my idea of a Kolsch but pleasant enough anyway.
