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.

jgb9348 (5522) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Clear golden coloured body with a very large, six centimetre tall off-white head that shows trillions of bubbles rising from the bottom - nice! Aroma of yeast, light malt, rice, corn, a hint of resinous hops, some lemons and a bit of bread. Light-bodied; Very mild malt notes with some rice and grain and a very subdued citrus flavour with the faintest amount of hops noticeable. Aftertaste is almost as bland, but some light yeast comes through along with the malt - that’s it, absolutely no complexity. Overall, an average beer at best - and at worst, a subpar beer with not much flavour and one that is WAY overpriced. People should get over some reputation ratings on this one, it simply isn’t a great beer and definitely not worthy of any high marks, period. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from King Richard’s Wine & Spirits in Michigan City, Indiana on 09-September-2015 for US$9,99 sampled at home in Washington on 12-June-2016.

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2016
Light golden color with a white, airy head. Aromas of noble hops abound along with sweet pale malt. No this is not a Kolsch, but it is a fine beer. A mix between a German pils and kolsch. Clean and malty, with an extra zip of hops. 6/12

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle from Crown Liquor, Indianapolis. Pours a golden color with 1 inch of white head that retains well. Mild aroma of grains, soap, and freshly dried linen. Flavors is similar to aroma with the addition of lemon and grass. Lively carbonation and light body. Refreshing and light.

bluejacket74 (1767) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2015
22 ounce bottle, bottled on 8-10-2015. Served in a Kölsch/stange style glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy gold color with a couple inch frothy white head. Head retention and lacing is both pretty good. The brew smells like grainy/bready malt, floral hops, lemon peel and some white pepper. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some grassiness noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is light, it’s a bit coating, but it’s also refreshing and easy to drink. Lots of carbonation. I thought this was a good brew, certainly worth picking up if you’ve never had it before. Hopefully next time I’ll get to try this one fresher. $8.99 a bomber.

phaleslu (9019) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2015
22 oz. bottle from The Party Source. Pours a clear, light gold color with a finger of white head that fizzes into a film quickly. Very clean throughout - light, bright, barely-there hop character for Three Floyds (lacks their big, forward grapefruit-spicy house hop character). Lighter malts and grains, too. Light-bodied, with soft medium-high carbonation and a clean, refreshing mouthfeel. Great summer drinker, and a long-time FFF beer that I finally got around to. Good one.

Dogbrick (11021) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2015
This beer pours a clear pale golden color with a medium white head that burns away steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light body with flavors of sweet citrus, grainy malt and earthy hops. The finish is fruity with a mild hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
