Designed after the Kolsch beers of Koln Germany, this light lagered ale is a session beer by design. Made with soft German pilsner malt, you may find yourself having more than a few of these!

Pint at the Loon. Clear golden with no head. Pleasant, lightly fruity grainy cereals, light grassy noble hops. Medium body, somewhat relaxed carbonation. Nice biscuit and cereal, modest noble hops, slightly fruity, quite nice. A nice pint.

This Gravenhurst, Ont. brewery makes a lot of creatively named and flavoured beers, but this Kolsch-style lagered ale is the entry point for less adventurous drinkers. It’s an easy-drinking, pale gold brew made with pilsner and wheat malt and spalter and magnum hops. It’s both reasonably crisp and slightly sweet and is a sessional five-per-cent alcohol.

Straw coloured. A touch hazy. Good foam. Nose is bready. Flavour is refreshing with a nice spicy hop kick in the finish . Well done Sam ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very Coleen pour. Just a touch hazy. You can still see through it thou.. Lacy white head. No real discern able scent. Surprising amount of taste despite the near nothing scent. Has a stong grassy bitter taste. The type you get in some of those organic salads. There’s noting terrible about this but nothing great either. It’s alright.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a bit of white head and a little visible carbonation. Smell is warm citrus and a slight funk. Palate is light bodied with moderate carbonation. Taste is slight sweet and bitter with a short bitter aftertaste. Meh, it’s a Kolsch.

Very pale straw colour. Slightly hazy with a thick white head. Nice clean pilsner malt and a very fresh breadiness. Lightly yeasty with a touch of noble spicy hoppiness. Fresh tasting. Clean and delicate. Great balance - nice job on this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear pale yellow with white head. Some grains, light malt, slight bitterness, refreshing with a hint of lemon. Moderate carbonation, mild body, bit dry on the finish.

Great colour and aroma to this Kolsch from Sawdust City. Taste is toasty with some doughy and earthy notes from the malts

Enjoyed on tap at The Rhino. Hits the style and drinkable, smooth. Small amount of yeast and hops. A bit below average mouthfeel.

This is probably one of the best Kolsches I’ve ever had. Not that this is a huge deal, but I was really surprised by the decency of this beer. There’s a little cheese in here and a nice crisp, almost potato chip-like finish. There’s something really breadlike in the yeast, a finish of good bread. On tap at The Rhino.
