8-17-08 bottle thanks to miketd Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Semi to medium clarity. Light watery orangish amber in color with a thin q-tip white head. Smell is dough - big bold dough! Flavor is light and doughy with no hefty yeast or funk aspects. Drinkable and enjoyable yet light and quiet. Overall, an easy summer drink.
12 oz. bottle courtesy ucusty. Thanks! Pours a slightly cloudy amber-orange with a weak, quickly disappearing head. Syrupy peach/pineapple aroma with grain and caramel notes. Much drier taste with some fruity notes, grass, hay and bitter hops. Medium bodied. jsquire (4677) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Murky yellow color out of the bottle with a fizzy white head. Sweet nose with some light malts. Light beer with some honey, lemon, and light buscuit dough that gets a little heavy in the finish. Decent summer beer. lb4lb (2628) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Bottle from miketd. Thanks man! Pours a rich cloudy golden with a small whitish head. Smell is sweet fresh light malt and honey lemon. Taste is slightly thin, but crisp and refreshing. Very drinkable and very lightly hopped. Touch too bland, but a decent kolsch. CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Pours a hazy straw golden color forming a nice white foamy head. Aroma of light straw grass, a bit of malty buds, and slight ocean water. Flavour of raw straw, earthen dirt, and malted breads. A Straight up Kolsch beer, no doubt. Easy drinker, clean and refreshing. Not a knock out or memorable beer, yet a good one for the lawn.

A little heavy for a Kolsch but still good. Nice nose greated with a light white head. Poured a clear yellow. taste was good, some fruit and maltiness. carbonation was good but mouthfeel was a little heavy for style. Nice for a state side Kolsch. Good for sessions! nearbeer (5671) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 16, 2008

Flavor - Sweet fruity flavors and light malt start quickly, very gently bitterness builds into the finish.
Palate - Light body and carbonation, nice mouthfeel, smooth, lightly dry
Overall - Good flavor, refreshing, balanced, but maltier that the few German examples that I’ve had.
