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!

hazy gold, wispy white head, several streaks of lace, sweet malt aroma with a light corn character and just a hint of floral hops, medium body, sweet malt flavor, still a good bit of the corn quality, nice balancing hop flavor and bitterness,

Bottle from the Folsom BevMo. Pours light gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is bready with light noble hop. Med minus body. Flavor is bready, with some herbal and noble hop aspects. It’s bitter in the finish. Beats Bud Light anyday.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 9, 2011
Mein erstes ausländisches Kölsch. Süßer Geruch. Das Bier ist leicht herb und angenehm malzig, leider gemischt mit einem leicht metallernen Aroma. Im Nachgeschmack, der nicht lange hält, wird es leicht bitter. Annehmbar. Test vom 1.10.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,8,9,9,10,9 - 8,80

Lubiere (9765) - 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.

Bottle @ home. Clear, golden yellow orange appearance with a white head. Pale grainy malty, grassy hoppy nose. Sweet, bland, pale malty, bitter, fairly nasty flavor. Pretty crappy.

Sammy (8390) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2005
Fizzy and thin, OK coppery colour, not much in taste but certainly drinkable and better than club soda, though reminds me of it because of strong carbonation and salty aftertaste. Lemon and metallic in mid-sip

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pale golden colour, white head. Grainy aroma, light noble hop aroma and even some ethanol (not good in a 5% beer). Light berry esters. Flavour is also grainy, peppery and slightly dank. Fruity esters and some fairly assertive bitterness. Metallic and vegetal. Pretty poor.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Golden amber pour with a small head. Aroma of straight malt with a honeylike sweetness. Grainy taste with grassy notes and a green-apple like fruitiess. A little watery and thin.
