Kolsch 45 is just what you need on a hot summer day. Kölsch beer originated in Cologne, Germany and is unique in that it is a warm fermented ale, but is aged like most traditional German lagers at a cool temperature. Though light in body and color, its prominent hoppiness and radiant yellow “straw” color sets it apart. As you taste Kolsch 45, you’ll notice that the head retains prominent, pleasant aromas. Light Pilsen and Munich malt aid in the crisp, refreshing nature of this beer. Hop bitterness is present without adding a lingering resonance.

In short: kölsch??
If this is a kölsch i´m the emperor of China. Pours hazy golden with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Citrusy, malty, herbal, vegetables aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, some crispy texture. Moderate bitterness, fruity. Still waiting for my kölsch.

bigtaster (690) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Very clear pale yellow color with large white head that dissipates quickly. Nose light cereal, some light fruit, pear, banana. Light sweetness throughout, a slightly acidic finish that lingers. Nice easy to drink and enjoyable, just doesn’t quite hit spot.

yngwie (14715) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle. A small, off-white head forms over an almost clear golden body. The aroma is a bit sourish, almost puke-like, with fruityness and grains. Some resiny, piney notes. Semi-sweet and fruity flavor with grains and a grassy hoppy touch. Medium body, dry and pleasantly carbonated. Lasting finish. A decent one, but there’s some unpleasant notes in the aroma. 141219
