dukeredhair (243) - California, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Really an odd malt bomb considering the style. It is by no means REALLY malty but it might be the most malty kolsch i’ve ever had. Pours a dark almost amber color with no head and very few bubbles. aroma is malt forward with a hint of the expected kolsch yeast. taste is sweet with caramel malts and no noticeable hop presence. palate is a bit sticky and not super refreshing. overall it is a slightly unexpected and not entirely welcomed take on the style.

Drake (13301) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2016
12 ounce bottle, 9/10/16. Slightly hazy amber, large fizzy tan head, fair head retention. Aroma of toasted doughy malt and mild floral hops. The taste is bready malts, floral and herbal hops and some faint apricot-like fruits. Medium bodied, crisp, mild lingering bitterness. Solid.

jrodooo5 (1611) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Solid & clean kolsch! Decent pout that has a retaining white head & lacing. Flavor is kind of malty & actually more interesting than most in this style. Not too bad!
