Beautifully crips nd light golden blonde ale in the style of a German Kolsch. A suggestion of fruit and malt in the aroma, ad just a kiss of noble German hops for balance makes for a very easy drinking beer.

This is not a fantastic game changer but for a light summer style kolsch it has everything you want. After so many heady beers I wanted to start out light. This fit the bill perfectly. Anybody that can nail a kolsch really knows what they are doing. Vintage Brewing is definitely on my radar for the future as long as they can keep up this level of excellence.

Aroma / Appearance - Transparent golden body sparkles with life. A white fringe of head decorates the top like a fluffy cloud. Clean, crisp, and simple it has the grainy characteristics of a basic session beer.

Flavor / Palate - Sessionable and easy on the palate this leaves a light impression before it collapses into a fluid memory. The tease of hops is enough to impart flavor but not stick to the throat. I don’t usually get a chance to try many kolsches. This one fares well with any other prime example you can find relatively fresh.

On tap at the Grand Opening - A slightly hazy light amber pour with a very small head. Smells soft and fruity, with some lemon and white grapes. Taste is light honey, with mild, grassy hope and nice fruitinesss. Smooth and light in the mouth, something that I could drink a lot of. Excellent.

On tap at Vintage, pours a clear golden color with little head, has a sweet aroma, overall it has a sweet finish to it and is a nice summer brew.

On tap at the brewpub. This is what they have to have for all those who still want a Miller light there. Better than the macros, but nothing I will ever grow to love.

Pours a clear gold, thin head. Not much aroma, but it was lager-like. Moderately sweet. Crisp finish, silky, touch of hop bitterness, light body. A fine beer for those starting out craft beer drinking.

At the brewery before the penn state Wisconsin game. Go Penn State. Clear yellow in color with little head some bubbles flowing to the top. Smell is yeaty with some fruit smell. Taste is bitter upfront with and then some during sweetness and then the finish is very mild and watery. Not a bad drinking beer and a nice kolsch.
