Thanks a ton bauermj for this one. Pours a really nice and effervescent straw yellow with two fingers of crackling white head and a storm of carbonation. Absolutely wonderful beer, grassy and bready notes pair wonderfully with just a touch of wet hay and fruity notes from the yeast. A very light malt sweetness pairs well with a touch of citrus rind and spicy hop character. Light body with the perfect citrus rind bitterness on the finish. Man, I loved this.

Pours clear gold with a sticky white head, very clingy. Aromas of rice, lemongrass, straw. Taste is lemon, mild tart, rice, soapy bitterness. Decent mouthfeel; clean, smooth, very crisp. This probably suffers somewhat due to the fact that Kolsch brews aren't really my thing. It's not bad, and it's probably even a very solid example of the style, but I still find it lacking compared to the big stouts and fruity IPAs that are my wheelhouse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22. Thanks, C! All of these were so rad. Pours a hazy medium amber with a loose white head. Clean caramel and light herbs on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. No heavy sweetness, just a nice toasty presence. Very clean and drinkable kolsch. Mild finish.

jgb9348 (5557) - 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 (5519) - 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 (1797) - 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.
