COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Pours honey gold with a one finger picket fence white cap on top. This is a damn fine brew, but you wouldn’t know it from some of the confused & illogical ratings below (for example saying that a beer is good for the style & then giving it a low rating is just weak). It’s a great little Kolsh, nice & crisp pilsner hopping, brisk & refreshing finish. If you have a drinking buddy who is a lager girl/boy give ’em this. If you like to start the night with the heavy & hop bombing stuff consider ending your session with this.

Pretty basic beer. Easy drinking and refreshing. Good for the style and good for a hot day.

probstblueribbon (2926) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
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.

GuillaumeCL (343) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2013
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.

JoeMcPhee (8497) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2013
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
