Slubgob (181) - West Hartford, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Bomber into tulip. Hazy golden yellow, moderate persistent white head. On the nose, I’d swear it’s a hefe -- wheaty, a hint of fruit. In the mouth, it’s fairly hoppy on the entry, picks up a grainy mid, and finishes with resinous hops. Decent, but I’d like the hops dialed back just a bit.

Scrapersnbeer (1465) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Features the usual light bready aroma and also some spiciness and grass. Lighter yellow, and while heady, it’s still for a Kolsch I’d say. Initial bitterness followed by a sharp dirt finish. Exceptional crispness. What Kolsch needs as a style is more hops...and it;s covered here.

Excellent Kolsch, slightly heavy on bittering hops = perfect. Initial bitterness followed by mild sweetness, finished by a pleasantly lingering bitterness. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet malts and grains. Pale clear gold with a thin bubbly head. Grains, cereal, grassy hops.

johnnnniee (2150) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 17, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Comes to the table a lightly hazy gold with a smallish white head that persists. Nice sweet bready pilsner malt nose with a hint of honey and floral spicy hops. The flavor is a touch on the sweet side with an almost under attenuated quality to it. Sweet honey caramel and pilsner malt with a touch of spicy hop and a hint of diacytyl. Light to medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly mouthfeel. Its a touch sweet, but I could get behind a few of these.

LilBeerDoctor (3413) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light orange with a thin white head. Aroma of light fruits, strawberry, pale malts. Flavor of bready malt, sweet fruit, earthy hops, and more grains the finish. A well made kolsch- complex and not too sweet. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Herbal and citrus aroma, taste is light bitter. Drinkable with long finish.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear straw color with a thin and fizzy white head that evaporates quickly to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light body with flavors of mildly bitter hops, biscuit malt and a solvent-like taste in the background. The finish is lightly bitter with a metallic hops aftertaste. Something off about this one.

SrSilligoose (3217) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 21, 2013
Wowe. Awesome fresh crisp clean cracker malts. Pleasant herbal wet grass hops. Prickly carbonation. Some rustic dry herbal dough to round things out. Nice juiciness mid palate. Great beer.

To be clear, I had the Kolsch German style ale. Fantastic beer. The aroma is out of this world great. You don’t expect this from a golden ale. I have nothing bad to say.
