COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Colorado Kölsch is a derivative of German Kölschs, which were created in response to the popular lager-based Pilsners being produced in the Czech Republic in the 1840s. That means it’s a light crisp ale with a hint of sweetness. And very refreshing

arminjewell (6158) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2012 Pour on tap at Old Chicago, slightly hazy yellow with white head, aroma has notes of grain, cereal, grass, some biscuit, fairly clean but not much to it. Taste, cold, is decent with hints of grass and biscuit, touch of grass, cereal, hay, finishing fairly sweet and slightly dry. Not the worst, but not much to it.

Superior, Co. - Superior Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Brilliant, medium gold pour, quickly fading white head. Aroma is grassy with hints of fresh lake water. Flavor is crisp with some nice creamy, buttery notes, a hint of honey sweetness and a bit of sweet cake mix goodness. Crisp mouthfeel.

degbert (1103) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazsy gold with a fine-grained, white head. Nose is sweet and spicy -- cardamom coffeecake. Crisp and fresh on the tongue, but somehow has a big hole in the middle; the initial wash of flavor doesn’t carry through to the back of the mouth. Finish is oddly bitter. Starts promising, but ends poorly.

daknole (9049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Pale gold pour. Very faint aroma of pale malt, corn and the tiniest amount of hops. Flavor is crisp and refreshing. A bit grainy and corn.

Can with Andrew and Carla. Pours yellow with white foam. Smells wheaty. Tastes sweet and feels slightly thick with hints of lemon and wheat.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Pale clear yellow, with very minimal sugary sweet aroma. Nothing complex on the nose. And nothing complex on flavor. Almost no flavor at all. Hint of bitterness, and mild sweetness. But it’s so light bodied, you could play beer pong with it.

Atom (1338) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2011
On tap oc pours a clear straw with a small white head. Aroma is a subdued soapy grain. Taste of smooth grains. Nothing special but very drinkable.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Pours a slightly cloudy, very pale golden yellow color with straw cored hues and 1.5 finger white foam head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks and spots of lace. Sweet, slightly earthy aroma with hints of light fruit, grass and straw . Subtle spice with bready yeast, apple and pear. Faint alcohol. Medium bodied but fuller than expected with slightly dry earthy hops and some zesty spice. Peppery with pale malt, earthy grass, straw and crisp, light fruit. Hints of apple and pear as well as some banana and subtle alcohol. Crisp, clean and easy to drink.

notalush (4833) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Tap at Euclid Hall - clear golden pour - I have to say that there are no true flaws in this beer, really, unless you count being boring as fuck a flaw, in which case, then yes, this beer is seriously flawed - little to no crispness or hop character - zero malt character - it’s just kind of...there - your brain registers that it is drinking something, but that’s it - it is possible to make a beer this light, but still full of crisp, snappy, spicy/hoppy goodness - this has not happened here.

rougeau13 (1987) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2011
Clear golden with an off-white head. Aroma of grain, corn, and slight hops. The taste is grainy and corny, but without off flavors. Light body. Decent.
