4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This beer is light, yet well balanced and bodied as stated on the bottle itself. It has flavour and yet is not overpowering. This is probably my favourite Koelsch - arguably even better than my favourite authentic Koelsch from Koeln (Cologne, Germany) called Frueh.
Sehr gut! Ausgezeichnet! Daumen hoch!
(Very good! Excellent! Thumbs up!)

Beer has a great flavor. Flows smoothly over the palate with a great mouth feel. Overall a very good beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle, bubble pint. Effervescent, clear pale gold pour with a sturdy, frothy white head, which remains at 1 finger thickness until the last sip! Soft, pleasant floral hops accompany a mellow honey and light malt aroma. Flavour is medium sweet and slightly grainy. Authentically Kolsch-like. Aftertaste has good duration for the style and leaves a pleasant impression of light fleshy fruits, apple and sweet grain. This is a solid Kolsch from a solid brewery that very rarely disappoints. Rate to style slutface!

A clean bright golden ale. A real good lighter drinking beer. A great intro to other Schlafly beers.

Draft at the Tap Room. This is a staple beer for me and I don’t know why I’m just now rating it. This beer has a nice grainy aroma with a hint of lager and pilsener smell. It pours clear golden yellow with tiny little carbonation bubbles. The flavor is slightly dry and fruity and represents the style extremely well. This is a summertime must if you’re in the area.

A tad bit of corn in the aroma. Looks decent. A great beer to start out with after a hard day of work. A nice crispness and some light fruitiness in the body with a crisp dry finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very nice summer beer; not too heavy, not too light. Slight German Weiss beer flavor, but only slight. Still a transparent light color, but with more body than a pilsner. Nice with a lemon wedge.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2004 A very interesting brew.
Definitely an ale but seemed to have lager characteristics too. Rich golden color, ever so slightly hazy with a lacy but not spectacular head and a citrusy aroma. Light to medium bodied and malty with a lemony note, quite the thirst quencher, with a dryish finish.

Sampled on draft, Patton Alley Pub, MO. This kolsch pours slightly hazy gold with an ample white head and nice lacing. A well-balanced flavor that highlights its malts with just a hint of peppery hops and subtle fruits (apples and plums). Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Finishes clean. Very drinkable and a good example of the style!

I like the heavier darker beers for the most part. I’m a hop-head, I love IPA’s but on a hot summer day, you’ll have trouble finding a better drinking "summer" beer than Schlafly’s Summer Kolsch!
