COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Effervescent, this summer brew is fashioned after the Kolsch biers that originated in Cologne, Germany, in the 1800s. Hallertau, Magnum, and Mount Hood hops combine for an especially clean, crisp finish.

Bottle to mug. Pours super clear straw with a big white head that fades quick. Aroma is slightly grassy and cereal like. Taste is similar to a pilsner, clean, crisp, not much hops, but bright. Finish is easy with medium carbonation. Absolutely worth the $2.35 I paid for the bomber but nothing ground breaking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wlajwl (3817) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Aroma pale/grainy malts, bread a hint of vanilla. The flavor is pale malts, fruit/berries, mild hops and a long and bitter/beery finish.

Slubgob (183) - West Hartford, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Drank from bottle. Light malt flavor,a but like stale beer the morning after but not as objectionable. Light in the mouth with moderate carbonation, grassy and glassy grains, finishes with just a bit of hops. Not a wonderful kolsch but a good light summer drinker.

Frank (2832) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2014
I am not 100% sure I would call this a koelsch but at least it is not just some crappy blond ale. It kind of strikes me as something along the lines of an American cream ale but not as corny tasting. It’s clear orange w/ a very small foamy head. It has a mild nose that lightly grainy w/ a bit of grassy hops. It’s dry and crisp w/ a touch of malt character, crisp carbonation and a lingering bit of bitterness in the finish. I can get behind this stuff. It is not blowing my mind or anything but does well on a nice summer day.

johnnnniee (2293) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours a crystal clear deep straw color with a decent sized white head that quickly recedes. Aromas of bready pilsner with hints of sugary and fruity sweetness and a very faint floral hop scent. The flavor is mildly sweet with a honey sugary fruitiness that mixes fairly well with the doughy bready malts. Crisp spicy hop bitterness and a touch of carbonic bite balance this fairly well. Light to medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation. Nice summer brew.

snoworsummer (2085) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2014
From a bottle. Pours very clear pale gold with a very thin head. Tastes like musky malt, light corn, very light flavor overall. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like light musky malty grains.

sonnycheeba (3501) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle from sampler pack. Pours yellow/gold with white head. Aroma is cereal and biscuit malts, grassy notes, and light fruit esters. Flavor is dry malty base with light toast, some grassiness, and faint citrus esters. Light body and medium carbonation.

rgf001 (130) - München, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2014
Faint noble hop aroma to style. Pours clear golden with white head that disappears too quickly. Pilsner and Munich malt tastes. Dry finish. Not bad. Needs more carbonation and better head retention but it is a good kölsch.

kidobutai (346) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Light golden, clear color. Short lasting frothy head, a small bit of lacing. grassy aroma, refreshing taste going down. Good on a hot day.
