This light-colored, refreshing ale is THE beer of Cologne. Well balanced and mild mannered, this beer is great for summer.

EyeAmBaldman (461) - Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Pours clear gold with a thick off white head. Aroma is decidedly German with a bit of skunk. Taste is a tad bitter with a typical Kolsch flavor. Not a bad Kolsch.

sawbuck (602) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Bready, yeasty aroma with some notes of grass. Deeper than expected yellow with a pillowy off white head. Rich malt up front. Somewhat sweet. Notes of bread and sweet corn. Bitterness is mild on the back end, with mild note of pepper and spices. Nice carbonation. Average Kolsch.

ccex (1183) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2015
12 oz. bottle pours a hazy yellow/straw color with small white head. Aroma is grainy but with a bit of lemon. Taste is slightly bitter with an abrupt finish and aftertaste of wheat. Body is light with lively carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. A refreshing summer beer, but nothing too memorable.

tfontana (570) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is basement aroma with mild resinous hops. Appearance is clear gold with 1 finger-width white foamy head, mild sparkle and no lacing. Taste is medium bitter over mild fruity ester sweetness. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, fair carbonation and bitter finish. Overall, not my cup of tea.

beer_rookie (332) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Pours a cloudy straw color. Has a slow forming white head. Some lacing.

Aroma is slightly bready. Pretty heavily fruity/citrusy. Lightly hoppy. It’s a very vibrant aroma.

Taste is hoppy, but it’s light and not too bitter. There’s a touch of lemon. The toasted malt is light, and not on the front.

Mouthfeel is crisp. It’s pretty well carbonated. It’s tasty. It’s drinkable.

Overall, this is excellent. I really like it. It’s somewhat of a medium between an IPA and a lager.

Vestlake (270) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 30, 2015

JoeMcPhee (9244) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2015
Pale golden pour. The aroma is very light. Some subtle fruit and a little bit of corn-like malt character. Clean ferment (relatively). Warming intensifies the fruit. Okay - sort of cream ale ish.

Kocese (7) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2015 does not count
Keg pour at Sedgwicks Bar, yellows golden pour with a nice white frothy head. Light in the mouth, taste of malt, not quite toast more like a white bread and it also sticks to your tongue. Nothing wow about it, but nothing you will complain about. Just going around successful and not singled out like a middle class office worker.
