b3shine (5961) - 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.

Off metallic taste despite being in a bottle. Some hop bitterness and light citrus background wheat detectable as well. Not so good.

crossovert (8177) - Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2015
355ml bottle. Golden pour, foamy white head. Soapy and floral aroma, bready malt, very traditional. Flavor is a bit biscuity, but plenty of herbal hops, interesting yest note think frueh. Think this is is like with Koelner beers.

TH28 (166) - - JAN 2, 2015
Appearance: golden, hazy, with a light white head that dissipate quickly. Aroma: bready malt with kolsch yeast esters of pear and light pepper. Taste: light malt sweetness that leads into a sharp, floral hop bitterness. Bitterness sharper than typical kolsch examples. Mouthfeel: Light to moderate body with crisp carbonation. Finish: Dry, with bitterness lingering on the tongue. Faint bready malt. Overall: A bit heavier malt character and bitterness than a traditional kolsch. Yeast character spot on. Very drinkable.

Lubiere (10547) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
A hazed blonde kolsch with a thin white head. In aroma, light biscuit malt with grassy hops, grainy notes, OK. In mouth, a sweet fruity biscuit malt with light grassy hops, light grainy notes, pedestrian.

WTF? Kölsch? This is a Belgian Wit and even at that gone wrong. A modest 4.8% ABV yet you clearly smell alcohol before you can taste it. Way too much malt in the taste and so cloudy you’d think they dissolve the brewer’s old gloves in it. Maybe that explains the sour off taste. Might be interesting yeast for something Belgian, but for Kölsch it isn’t even the right color. Laughable.

Nice straw yellow color and an interesting yeast profile. Light finish and not bad at all.

decaturstevo (5260) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Pale yellow pour with white head and lace. Aroma is clean light wheaty malt and a touch of floral hops. Light sweet malt flavor with a decent floral bitter finish. Medium/light bodied. pretty good

574deadzone (1106) - North Central, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Pours a hazy golden with a finger-width of off-white head that settles slowly, leaving some soapy lace. Nose involves crusty sourdough bread, subtle sweet fruit, light spice. Fairly sweet, lightly tart, lightly bitter. Medium to light bodied, somewhat oily, a bit watery, softer carb, with a pleasant, dusty tart and bitter finish. Honestly, a really nice beer. Would love to see it in their can session series. Makes me a believer in Kolsch as a style. I didn’t find this boring at all. Nice clean drinkable brew.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, fruity, light. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
