Boutip (4669) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of buttery notes with light cereal notes also discernible. Taste is also dominated by unrefined grainy notes with light buttery aftertaste. Body is about average with medium carbonation. Definitely not as good as most example of the style.

edwardbass (498) - Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Aroma is malty, color is medium yellow. Taste is grainy, malty with a dry lemony spin. This style is very much not for me, but this was not an unpleasant beer to try. 12 oz bottle from Crown Liquors in downtown Indianapolis.

b3shine (5304) - Indiana, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks solid; a completely transparent light gold with white lacing. Smells and tastes of mild dough and light spices. Average on the palate. An interesting Kolsch.

ads135 (2890) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - NOV 11, 2013
This is a pretty decent Kolsch. Dry and nicely carbonated. Sweetish on the tip of the tongue with a bready finish.

boxofrane (2085) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small white head that quickly dissipates. The aroma has toast, some biscuit, frankly fairly bready. The taste is biscuity, some sweet grain, a bit of a long finish. Not bad for a fairly boring style.

onceblind (4012) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Clear golden with a thin foamy head. Nose is biscuit-grainy with a very light grassiness. The flavor is really light and clean with a little grassiness and English muffin breadiness (not toasted or with cracker tones). Very clean and light without a lagered yeast.
