Clear golden pour with a single finger head. Big pale malt aroma. Lots of yeast and bread. Big mouth for a Kolsch. Huge bread notes in the taste. Very clean. An excellent summer beer.

On draft at 3 Floyds, pours a light hazy gold color aromas of lager yeast, hay, straw, and light bread. Flavors follow suit, light creaminess to it refreshing, nice offering.

Draft... Murky straw, but mostly clear, off white head, leaves a thin cap good lace... The aroma is really sweet but I find the bitterness in kolsch’s offputting so I appreciate this...the taste is pretty sweet as well but brings about a little better balance with some wet grains and a floral note... Good maybe even great for the style, a good bmc transition beer, but not something I’d have again

Enjoyed on tap at 3 Floyds Brewpub after eating a whole mess of food with some good friends. Appearance a slightly cloudy gold with a thin white head. Aroma of german lager yeast and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is nice and refreshing, nice malt/hop balance, grassy, full bodied, really great stuff considering the style.

JStax (3073) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Poured from a Growler into a Three Floyd’s pinto glass. Appearance is light gold with a thick white head of foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is slightly spicy and a bit grainy. Taste is estery with a nice biscuit presence. This example of a kolsch has a good bit more going on than I had expected.

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Growler… Murky pear-colored ale with a small, scattered, white head. The citrusy, grainy bouquet offers lemon pith accompanied by a gentle, malty, butterscotch component. Medium-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. The citrusy, grainy flavor provides a modestly acidic lemon nuance. Finishes crisp and tangy with a soft kiss of butter. Growler courtesy of fear025!

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Pours clear straw gold with little head that quickly fades away, ok retention. Aroma is lightly grassy, spicy, and cleanly bready. Taste is clean pilsener-like malt, grass, hint of nuts, touch of spicy hops. Body is light-medium, frothy, above average carbonation, dryish spicy finish. Overall, a great lighter bodied beer from 3F. Full flavored and crisp.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2011
draft at the brewpub. pours hazed straw yellow with foamy white head. a wonderful fruity estery yeast aroma. the nose seems right on for a kolsch style. the flavor follows the same line but tends to come off a little too tart for my style, nice lemony and fruity character though. good kolsch though.

pantanap (3362) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2011
On tap at three floyds... Pours a transparent apple cider pour with no head whatsoever... Soft grain, biscuits and grass hops for the aroma... Flavors are more grassy with a lively feel to it while quickly moving to a sweeter grain note. Crisp and semi-lively mouthfeel. ok but nothing out of the ordinary.
