degbert (1315) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Poured from bottle. Interesting nose; yeasty and spicy with faint overtones of apple. Pours a clean gold. Taste is rich and grainy with a lot of substance and a noticeable bitterness on the finish. In the dictionary next to ’Session Beer’, there’s a picture of this. Good.

jtclockwork (10431) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2010
Pale yellow pour with little white head. Aroma is flowers and cereal. Taste is very smooth, but empty. It’s a refreshing summertime beer. That’s about it. Rated 1/7/10

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2010
A pale golden beer with almost no head. The aroma was very light bready. The taste was light malty and seems very refreshing and had a very small amount of carbonation being almost flat.

daknole (10112) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2010
Clear yellow pour, creamy white head. Crisp aroma. Some wheaty notes, light yeast, honey, bread and light fruit notes. Flavor is sweet and has a good dose of yeast and some bready notes. Better than I expected...but after the last 4 beers i tried, anything would have tasted ok.

notalush (5266) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2010
Lively gold pour - soapy, short-lived head - nose of honey, soft herbal notes, crisp, grassy noble hops - quite inviting - fairly full mouthfeel for something so light - dry, crisp, and moderately bitter up front - medium sweetness develops through the middle, along with some pleasant, subtle herbal and wildflower notes - the finish dries out again, and develops a slightly chalky texture that detracts from the refreshing character you want from the beer - otherwise fairly good

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
(Sample Date: 3/21/2010 Source:Other) Malty with spicy hop character. Very little fruitiness. Clear light golden with little head. Dry malty flavor and cracker like graininess. Finish is medium sweet with touch of residual bitterness.

Stew41 (1793) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2010
Best consumed as fresh as possible I suspect. This sample shows a little age but otherwise a very good alternative to old world pilsner. Some champagne-like biscuit on the nose and some grassy notes. Body is light with mild citrus and more grass. Fizz is lively and in this instance actually adds to the beer. All in all very subtle and simple but I thought it worked very well.

kseecs16 (1210) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2010
Draught at the Publican in Chicago. Pours a rich golden with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is richly malty with a light floral note. Tastes sweet with a mild malt character upfront than develops some nice lemon and floral notes with a light bitterness. A really nice Kolsch. Crisp, light and refreshing.

Kinz (3459) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Sampled post BJCP training session courtesy of maltdawg. Medium yellow, nice head. Floral hoppy aroma. Flavor matches, quite crisp. Clean malt. Hops more up front than expected. Very slight lactic note on finish. Nice.

I guess Kölsch travels about as well as Bitter. There’s a bit of round fruitiness here, but it’s rather lifeless and the little bitterness there is is dull. Sad.
