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!

Bottle poured into a cheater pint: A: straw yellow, 1/4" head with good retention, lots of bubbling carbonation S: not much nose, slightly bready, hint of spice from hop T: well balanced, slight spice and fruit. I detect slight tannin. Nothing too memorable. M: water like lightness. Feels oddly slick..

Bottle from Market Basket Brilliantly clear deep golden color with a small but long lasting bubbly white head. Graham crackery pilsner maltiness with some pomme and pitted fruits. Light floral hops. Crisp light metallic finish. Not horrible but far from a great example of the style. .

Bottle. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate balanced malt and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable beer

Jow (3511) - New York, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Bottle part of summer mixer hanging out at lake. Golden pour white foamy head. Nose is bready and grassy. Tastes of grass, bread, light herbal, musty basement, touch of green apple. Fine enough palate.

demannu (378) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2016
Summer mixed 12 pack, 1 of 4 styles in box. Grassy and slightly damp, musky smell. Looks nice. Clear deep golden color, slight white head, lots of visible active carbonation. Flavor is not very pleasing. Some sweet, slight hops, heavy yeast/grain. Just ehhh. Had I known no one was going to drink at my BBQ, I would have just drank from my cellared collection....

Meh. Summer pack. Pretty weak all around. Not offensively bad, but exactly the type of beer that makes me skip this brewer as many times as not. Generic slightly sweet, grainy yellow beer. Like a really well made macro, or a thoroughly boring craft.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a malt, grain and fruit aroma Appearance- The beer has that traditional Kolsch color of straw yellow with a medium sized white head. Taste- Grain, malt and fruit. It matches the aroma. Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall- An average Kolsch style beer.

I picked this beer up due to my love for Cologne, Germany. This is my first Kolsch style beer and I was overall moderately impressed. Color of this beer is golden bronze and this beer has a very strong aroma. There is a bit of a "sparkling-cider" type fizz to this beer and a very lively carbonation to it. Light bitter upfront taste with a light sour aftertaste. Decent beer but won’t try again.
