Clear straw with a good head that leaves quickly. Funky aroma characteristic of some lager yeasts. Taste is predominantly hop bitterness though there is a bit of sweetness at the start. Fairly crisp finish.

On tap at my brother-in-law's wedding, this pours clear straw with a fizzy soap head that diminishes to trace bubble lace. The nose is of light grains and hay. Flavors of light lemon, hay, wheat and light cereal finish with a curt grassiness. The light body and zesty mouthfeel make this a very nice representation of a Kolsch, which isn't easy today.

12oz can lake side at Catamount Reservoir. Can’t tell you how it looks. Smells like a standard kolsch, some metal notes, some mild biscuit, a little butter, some straw. Flavor has lemon, straw, biscuit, butter, a little apricot. Watery finish.

Pint from draft at Southern Hospitality. This is expectedly very clear with a gold color. Head retention is solid. This isn’t exactly an exciting style, but the execution is about as good as it gets. Aroma is clean, no DMS, very subtle sweetness, virtually no esters, bready malts, and the slightest dash of hops. Body is light and the flavor reflects the aroma perfectly. Good job on executing a kolsch that isn’t too sweet and also is devoid of unwanted flavors.

12 oz can from Evergreen Discount into a pint glass at home. Pale, yellow appearance with a nice white head, slowly diminishing, thick lacing. Mild aroma of floral notes, lemon peel, herbs, citrus fruits, pale malts and touch of spice. Similar flavor, lightly sweet and light bitterness. Light, thin body, a little watery with soft carbonation. Pretty easy to drink. Not offensive, just not much going on.

Received in a contest from Free Beer Week. I am a fan of Kolsch’s but this one left me wanting. The malt flavor wasn’t as full as I would have liked and there was a metallic twinge throughout. Meh.

Very light beer in the German tradition. Poured from a can. Has a aroma of yeast and apples. Paid about 10 bucks for a six pack, so I expected a lot more.

Bottle at Niko’s with friends. Pour is clear straw with a frothy white head that quickly dissipated. Grainy, cereal, crackery, corn, grassy, and straw aroma. Taste is heavy grain, bread, skunky, grassy, corn, doughy, and honey with a lightly bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Bleh.

Somewhere: Pours golden with white head. Aroma is lightly applish and bready. Easy to drink. Light malty ale with the characteristics Kolsch aspects. Nothing offensive, but nothing memorable either.
