COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Burnside Lime Kolsch is brewed as a German style Kolsch made with premium pilsner malt and a touch of wheat and Munich malts. We then add Tettnanger hops, and ferment with the German ale yeast at 59 degrees to create a crisp, dry, and thirst quenching beer. Then the Burnside twist; we hand zested 200 limes, steeped a pound of Kaffir Lime leaf in the kettle, and added lemongrass to the bright tank. The result, a highly drinkable summer ale with hints of exotic ingredients from the east. Drink it with a lime!

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle:   Vibrant straw, clear, light sudsy white head, little lacing.   Strong floral aroma, a little medicinal, and I hate to say it, some urinal cake.   Definite Lime tho!   Seems artificial in it aroma, however. Thankfully on the tongue its more Lime Leaf than the aromatic/floral lime.   Soft body, smooth, and very lime like on the finish.   The aroma is a bit deceiving in that its real artificial, but on the tongue its a bit more neutral and real.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Soft lime like finish.   Tiz okay, but the nose detracts too much.

Strange beer. Like a better bud light lime. Light and easy summer beer. Had this in draft as part of a flight at Burnside Brewing in Portland.

reebtogi (6350) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2016
650ml bottle pours a clear golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is lime zest with some leafy notes and hints of grains. Taste is a lime tartness with a light fruity and malty sweetness finishing dry. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, not quite fitting the style, but still a refreshing and enjoyable brew.

riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Lime and lemon grass, mild grain, perhaps a little cloroxy. Golden pour, mild haze, white head. Flavors of lime and lemon, mild bread and grain, more leafy lime and herbal lemongrass. LIngering citrus finish, natural but at the same time I can see how it can become a little solventy in large portions. Like craft Tequiza.

Lime takes over what might otherwise be a decent kolsch. Clear straw color with small white foamy head. Aroma is mostly citrus, lime. Taste also dominated by citrus, almost like a limeade. Would be a good summer time drink, I’m a few months too late.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Golden in color, light head. Nice kolsch and light fruit flavors and aroma. Decent beer.

chinchill (5226) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 19, 2014
22oz. Very hazy amber; Decent off-white head Wonderful smell mixes lime with fresh baked bread. The flavor is much less balanced, with the lime components dominating. Good sweet/bitter/sour balance, with all three present at near equal levels. Refreshing. Light body with appropriate medium carbonation.

shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle at Hop Haven. Nice lime taste. Easy going, lime is at the front. Bit of grain. Nice enough.

2.7
maekchu (4024) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 31, 2012
Draught at the brewpub. Has lemon grass, limes, and lime zest. Lime juice is the main aroma. Clear pale straw color, little thin geysers of carb rising. Lime juice initial; mid palate has some bready, cracker notes; mild lime finish, with some rather unpleasant chemical notes. Thin body. A bit interesting, but overall the flavors do not blend well.

3.5
Gerbeer (3896) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with light head but lots or carbonation. Aromas of limes and toasted malts. Flavor is heavy on the limes with maybe a bit of a witbier finish. Definitely refreshing so extra points, but in the category of a cooler, not a beer. Kolsch? Maybe as a base but not the result.
