COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Let’s face it, sometimes you just want a light, crisp beer you can drink. You’ve just spent a few hours in the garden, or on the trails, or returned from a long day on the job. You just want to relax and enjoy the mechanical act of drinking and the biological wonder of adult-style hydration.

ben4321 (4745) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Location: 12 oz can from Winooski Beverage, 7/17/15

Aroma: Aroma on the grainy side, some bread, pale malts, a bit of grassy hop, and some yeast
Appearance: Clear golden-orange color with a thin white head and strong, drippy lacing
Flavor: Malt forward, with some light pale malt sweetness, grassy bitterness, light spice
Palate: Light-medium body, drinks super easy, somewhat clean, and has average carbonation
Overall Impression: Solid enough, but it doesn’t go beyond that for me. Not clean or flavorful enough to be a standout in the style. I could see this being better super fresh, but I can’t say what the age is on this can.

A nice Kolsch

burleybrew (63) - - JUN 6, 2015
Can from Medford TJ’s. Straw color with a slight hop aroma w/a thin white head. Bready, thin, crisp, overly hoppy flavor without the hallmark fruitiness found in a German Kolsch.I think this is brewed w/a neutral yeast vs. a Kolsch strain. Tastes much more like an American Blonde than a Kolsch.

mjg74 (2824) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 23, 2015
Canned from Trader Joe’s. Hazy medium golden/brown in color. Nose is dominated by grains and malt. A hint of sweetness as well. Grassy up front with a sort of a fruitiness to it. Good malty texture. Somewhat creamy. Pretty tasty and clean.

brenn79 (1723) - Idaho, USA - APR 13, 2015
12 oz bottle- Pours very hazy straw golden with a large white head and cobwebby lace. Aroma is grains, citrusy, some honey, clean. The taste is very refreshing, crisp, grains, lemon, some banana, light honey. This is so much better than i was expecting. Nothing crazy awesome here, but solid Summer quencher!

Capa (2307) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2015
Slightly hazy golden with a thick white head. Lightly toasted malt with noticeable noble hops. Finishes with crisp and refreshing bitterness in the back of the throat. Easy going, flavorful, refreshing- quite a solid Kölsch. Sitting on the porch on a warm summer afternoon with a six of this would be near perfect.

Alphadelic (1922) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Tasty and smooth all round but it lacks the moreishness I love in a truly excellent Kolsch. It has a slick texture and quite lovely cereal flavors.

tom10101 (3889) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Can (12 oz) bought @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse.

Appearance: Slightly hazy bright golden with a medium easy to revive white head and good lacing.

Aroma: Not extremely hoppy, but still a tad too much for the style. Fresh cereals, herbal notes, citrus and biscuity notes.

Taste: Light to moderate sweetness, fresh cereals, herbal presence and decent malt backbone.

Palate: Light body. Medium carbonation. Clean. Crisp. Mild herbal finish.

Overall: Good american version of a Kölsch. Despite the hops, it’s still not too far from the style. Quite tasty, drinkable and quenching. Good!
