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!

scarletfire65 (978) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle at home, from Summer Variety Pack. Very clean aroma, a bit of lemon soap and pale malt is all. Light and crisp palate. Clean, simple, basically flavorless. Maybe a bit of crackery malt. Dry finish. Lacks everything. More like a pale lager than a Kolsch.

Dorwart (2386) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Dried straw and hay aroma with some light lemon and spices, cardboard and CO2. Color is a medium gold with a fizzy white head which does not last long. Light malts and dried grass in the flavor. Dried flowers, chalky bitterness and herbal hops. Very dry palate and a bit astringent. Finished dry and chalky. Not a brew that i would seek out again.

Nephilium (1406) - Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Mild noble hop aroma, pours a clear light amber with a white head. Light flavor with a touch of breadiness and biscuit. None of the crisp light fruit notes that are usually in a Kolsch. It’s light and easy to drink, but it isn’t good.

Pours an orange gold with a foamy head. Smells yeasty. Tastes like malt, bread, and fruit. Not too bad.

Light grassy scent, gold in the glass. A little fruity to start, but the malt picks up. Not too heavily hopped, and ... sour, rather than sharp. Great hot weather beer.

jrodooo5 (1064) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Boring! Clear golden pour with no head or lacing. Aroma is faint and not very captivating. The taste is nearly as plain. it’s well balanced but that’s not saying much considering the lack of flavor. Ok at best and that’s stretching it!

Leafs93 (1740) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Pours yellow, little hazy, with a white head. Aroma is citrus, yeast and floral. Taste is sweet with a tart tempered finish. Light bodied with smooth texture.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Saranac 12 Beers Of Summer variety pack purchased at Sams Club. Gold hue, medium white head that mostly lasted with fine lacing, musty/pale lagery nose, lively carbonation, taste is an unbalanced mishmash that morphs into a subdued bitterness as the glass warms. Not the best beer in the 12 pack.
