A crisp and refreshing lighter summer offering, this Kolsch-style beer is golden in color, light bodied and a perfect remedy for hot weather.

22oz bottle. Nose is sweet and tempting, but the taste doesnt live up. A bit boring Not bad just Not up to my FFF expectations especially considering they bottled it. Chicago’s own Metropolitan does ths stye better imo. Havent really tried too many from the Germans by comparison. Still much preferred to bud or miller as a lighter beer. Cool label at least.

22 oz bottle pours a clear golden color with small white head and practically no lacing. Aroma is grainy and buttery with some light spices and grass. Thin to medium body and slick mouthfeel with active carbonation. Taste is neither bitter nor sweet, but perhaps a little salty, with the yeast coming out in the aftertaste. If it weren’t for the label, I never would have guessed that this conservative Kolsch came from my favorite and highest-rated brewery. Dare I say that this one is NOT "not normal"? There’s nothing wrong with it, but I expect more than just a hipster lawnmower beer from Three Floyds.

Scipio (817) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Pours a clear yellow with a thin, short lasting white head. Faint aroma of bread, grass, and some light spices. Taste picks up a little bit. Initial flavor is buttery, peppery spice, still grassy, but not as bready. I get some sweet tastes as well. Light in body, crisp, and somewhat refreshing. Not a whole lot more to discuss about this one. It just isn’t very exciting. My rating might actually be a bit generous the more I think about it.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2012
22oz bottle from Binny’s Lakeview. Pours a crystal clear, straw yellow colored body with a thin, fizzy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is grainy and clean with a light sweetness, some light lemon-grass hops, and Kölsch yeast. Flavor is similar. Clean and grainy up front with a light malt sweetness. Some Kölsch yeast and lemon-grass before this finishes dry and crisp with a light bitterness while leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, nothing crazy, but a well done example of the style. Crisp and clean with an easy drinking, light bitterness balanced with a grainy, light sweetness. Not bad.

Bottle. Straw gold pour, small white head, little lace/some retention. Aroma of biscuit, grass, light metallic. Taste is bread, grassy hops, biscuit, lemon. Palate is soft, thin, slick, lightly hoppy finish. Refreshing.

750 from Shenanigans. Light. Buttery. Slight slick to it. Not completely crisp, but decent. Drinkable, for sure and a bit of surprise for 3F in terms of style.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - SEP 7, 2012
651mL thanks to tastybeer. Pours a clear straw with a medium, soapy white head. Minimal, weak retention. Nose is plastic, canned pineapple. Taste is sharper, mild metallic, thicker biscuit, sharp lemon, clean, mildly hoppy. Almost cream ale in profile- very near macro-esque. Sort of like an upgraded Bud Light. Palate is a bit thin and papery. Nothing offensive. Highlight of this beer was the sick new label, which is 1000x better than the one shown on this site. It is essentially a skeletor reaper babe you would expect to see at comicon.

crossovert (11015) - Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Honestly a 97 for the style? This doesn’t even lick a turd to any German koelsch. Light, buttery, undeveloped, a shitter of a brew.

ads135 (4060) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 30, 2012
An excellent Kolsch, especially for an American brewer, and especially for Three Floyds for whom subtlety is not usually a modus operandi. Lemon and grass with a bit of citrus and hay in the aroma. A smooth, even slick mouthfeel and a medium to light body. Delicious.

On tap at FFF. Pours a clear yellow orange with little lacing. Aroma is of bread and lemon. Taste is lemon, orange, and some pepper. Thin mouthfeel and easy to drink. Not my favorite style but not bad, would enjoy more outside in the sun.
