Solstice Kölsch Style Ale is named for the lighter-style ales originating in the city of Cologne, Germany, whose history of brewing dates back to 874. Cologne’s beers differed from neighboring German beers in that they were top fermenting beers, versus bottom fermenting. A modern Kölsch was as defined in 1986 by the Kölsch Konvention as being pale, hop-accented, top fermented, and filtered. Solstice defines the style! Uinta chose the name Solstice to acknowledge the sunny disposition of the beer and to celebrate the changing of the seasons.

Pours a muted yellow and kinda of hazy. Lemon aroma. Flavor is light toasty grain. Bitter metallic finish. Would be great in mass quantities on the beach.

(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy light gold pour with a fizzy white head. Dry and lightly dank aroma with a touch of sweet malts under it. Sweet and slightly fruity at the start that leads to a light melon sweetness near the middle and then quickly fades into a lightly bitter and dry finish and aftertaste.

Lubiere (9888) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2013
A hazed blonde kolsch with a thin lacing creamy white head. In aroma, a rather grainy and fruity malt with herbal notes and mash tun notes. In mouth, watery kolsch with grassy and grainy malt, mineral notes and underfermented worth.

Very difficult to get any aroma off this brew. Maybe some grasses, hard to tell. Light golden in color, the head dissipated fairly quickly with some clinging to the side. Pleasant, mild, grassy taste. Fairly decent.
