COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Kolsch is the lightest bodied beer that we brew. Kolsch is a traditional German Ale, originating from the Cologne region. Very easy drinking (perfect summertime beer) and at 4.1% ABV it is light in alcohol content and only 21 IBU’s it is mild on hops but still has lots of flavor! We use only the highest quality authentic German ingredients to make this beer true to style.First place winner at 2003 Eldorado BBQ, Blues, and Brews Festival in Reno for the "Light Ale" category.

***On tap at the Freakin Frog Nov 2008***
Palest of yellow gold with a bright white cap, good retention and 360 deg lacing. The aroma has lemon and apricots with dusty grass. Is this supposed to be some sort of fusion Wit? Super light, watery bitterness... too much bitterness I think, weak citrus and not much more really. Medium light body, no carbonation, dry and finishes with a super watery malt. This was a waste of money.

Pale blond color. Some aroma of paper. Quite poor Lager, only at times a light crispy touch appear. Useless.

Pretty solid beer. Looks right. Flavor is definitely light, but refreshing. Actually not all that crisp, and a little thin in the finish, but certainly easy light drinking.

On tap @ Tenaya Creek poured a clear pale yellow with a small lasting white head. Aromas of bread, yeast and lemon. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread and light citrus with a crisp clean finish.

Pale color, not much aroma, decent head. Very refreshing, a bit more flavorful than the average Kolsch, but still very true to style. Definitely a good summertime brew.

elektrogeist (158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Typical Kolsch, a little watery for my liking though. Don’t even bother trying to drink this unless you’re in the drudges of Vegas’ frying hot summer, as then is when it will taste the best and be most refreshing..

Hazy light straw color with no head and slight lacing. Not much aroma at all. Thin malt up front with a little hop bitterness. Watery finish. Not much there.

Light gold color. Medium head. Aroma is grainy and fruity. A medium bodied Kolsch. Malts are fruity and slightly sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. A light and refreshing Kolsch. Well balanced. A touch tangy on the tongue in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

A dark golden color with a nice caramel aroma and bit buttery. The flavor is also buttery with caramel...sweet. A touch of hops.
