Regional specialty beer-style brewed in and around the town of Köln. Cold-fermented, light bodied ale. Golden color, low in alcohol with a distinct smoothness that makes this a very refreshing summertime offering.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Draft at SN Taproom. Pale yellow color with a white head. Yeast and bready malt aroma. Thin and very light. Toasty malt flavor with noticable hops. Malty finish. I didn’t really enjoy this beer much but I have to say it’s brewed to style as I can see it.

mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2007
On tap at HDG. Clear golden in color with a nice white head that left a nice lacing on the glass. Hoppy and fruity aroma. Citrusy, grassy, piney notes. Malty grainy, and hoppy flavor. Finish is bitter. Clean mouthfeel. Crisp and refreshing. Medium bodied beer. Very nice. Easily drinkable. Nice light summer beer.

nuplastikk (5033) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Tap at Sugar Maple. Filtered orange-tan, big steady white head. Not really true to style. Better ingredients. A nice beer nonetheless. Cleaner and brighter than a Kolsch, not really capturing the right yeast essence. Really enjoyable, just not sure I’d call it a Kolsch.

Terminus (3342) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle-friom the Summer Sampler 12pk Pours very pale straw yellow hue with a small fizzy white head. Nose is very nice-spicy hops, fresh cut grass, slight grainy note, slight sweetness. Smells authentic, maybe a tad hoppy. Flavors exhibit the spicy hops and pale grain husks, which give this beer a crackery malt profile. Very nice brew! Crisp refreshing on a hot summer day. Nothing special, just very well made and tasty Kolsch.

chuckstout (327) - Washington, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Nice sweet malt, lemony, fresh aroma. Pours a crystal clear golden color with good carbonation a white head and good lacing. Nice and refreshing a nice mid palette dryness, with the malt sweetness and lemony flavor in the front and side palette. Finishes very clean with some flavor remaining on the tip of the tongue. A solid session beer.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Hay and malt nose with notes of light bread and herbs. Well done with a good round mouthfeel and nice balance all of the way thru. Clean and lingering finish.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Draft @ HDG. Clearish yellow with decent head retention. Taste is crisp and lighly sweet with a nice grain flavor. Finishes clean. Really tasty without being too watery or sweet.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Tap at Blind Tiger: Light golden pour with a consistent white film of head. Zesty aroma with a peppery saaz hop character and crackery clean pils malt. The body is creamy and soft body. The flavor is nice and dry with a spicy hop presence and a crackery clean malt base. Has lots of grassy bitter noble hop character. A very clean Kolsh, pils like. Very nice session.

12FL OZ ($15.99 12pack) I see they used the photo I sent in for this, cool. Well I really enjoyed this one, Sierra Nevada is pretty good and this is no exception. Poured into a German Kolsch glass and was placed in the freezer for 10 minutes before the pour. was a great beer and wish I had more. drink it while its cold as ice like the Germans do, not a good idea to drink at regular beer temp as that’s not what its supposed to be done. will buy again for sure.
