COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle; poured a dark gold color with an off white head. Aroma of bread, caramel, with a touch of sweetness. Flavor was ok, but probably a bit below average for the style. Bready.

EithCubes (4701) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2012
As "Hoodoo", bottled on 08/22/12, opened here in early December. Nose of lightly dusty but sunny malt with a touch of hops, pours golden leaning toward orange with a short white head. Taste is very dry and lightly bitter, grainy with light hops. Light-medium body, crisp with a slightly mealy finish.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Clear yellow color, minimal bubbles with a couple rising to the surface. Smells sort of grainy. Flavor is grainy malt, cereals, not very crisp and not very hoppy despite what the label says. Very easy to drink though since the ABV is so low. This was a decent beer but is my least favorite for the style and I won’t make a repeat purchase on this one.

Bottled (as Hoo Doo Kölsch@Oliver Twist, Stockholm). Hazy yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is grainy, herbal, some bready malts along with some slight earthy and grassy notes. Flavour is rather similar with a nice bitterness in the finish. Balanced and for once quite close quite close to the German Kölsch.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a moderate white head. Nose is a bit skunky and metallic like a lot of cheap lagers. Taste is actually light and smooth and clean. Nice brew once you get past the nose.

ben4321 (3750) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 11/9/12, as Hoodoo Kolsch

Aroma: The nose is light and clean, some grass, mild fruity notes, and some grains
Appearance: It pours a slightly hazed golden-orange color with a small white head
Flavor: The taste is much like the nose, it is lightly sweet and lightly bitter
Palate: The feel is light-medium, it has a lively carbonation, and a nice, clean finish
Overall Impression: Not a terrible beer, but nothing super exciting either. I wasn’t a huge fan overall.

Murrow (69) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Bottled. Pours straw to pale gold with modest white head. Mild, bright aroma of grapefruit and hay. Flavor is crisp, tart grape and green apple. Slight hop presence. Finish is dry and slightly bitter. Thin mouthfeel, light bodied. Haven’t had many Kolsch style beers, but this reminds me of an English bitter. Crisp and refreshing, but one-dimensional.

Hoodoo kolsch. Biscuity, nice grassy aroma. Strong straw, salted crackers,dried tea leaf flavor with dry body, clean. Very nice and refreshing, but very pilsner-esque in the late clean bitterness.

Pint at Tribeca tavern. Ok aroma, grassy, Biscuity. Can’t tell color because of ceramic mug, ok head, no lace. Bitter flavor. Light body, watery mouthfeel, bitter finish. Ok easy to drink, nothing exciting, nothing offensive.
