Flowery grain aroma. Hazy light golden color with a large white head. Light beginning with a mild sweet finish. Good mouth feel. BroSpud (2327) - , Massachusetts, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Sampled at a tasting at Sudbury Craft Beer. Sampled this one after a bunch of IPAs so not really fair but found this to be a bit blander than their other offerings. Probably a good example of the style just not really my thang. Quick3Beers (1659) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Pours a dark straw from a can, nice doughy lemon aroma. Flavor is crisp dry, but with a light sweetness initially. A warmed up glass eventually added a slight banana note and seemed to approach or at least think about being a hefeweizen. One of the better kölshes I’ve had. arojewski (72) - Old Bridge, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Pint can from Luke’s on Cape Cod. Wonderful roasted malt and yeast nose common in German brews. heavy malt with opening sweetness common to the style. Low ABV makes it wonderful poolside. MaBeer1972 (2253) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Single bottle from Wines & More in Wareham. Pours out a slightly hazy light golden color. Big frothy white head and rolling effervescent bubbles out of the bottle. Bright bready citrus aromas and flavors. Quite refreshing with a long dry slightly bitter spice finish. A very good Kolsch.

Darker than usual for a kolsch with a strong ruddy-copper hue, clear and with a small, white, poorly retained head atop.
Grassy and rather spicy, but a strong cereal character and light toastiness gets in the way of what should be a brighter noble hop character. Clean, though, despite being muted and just smelling a touch old.
Soapy, bready, not much maltiness and very grainy, with light, peppery hops and bitterness. It’s pretty on-par with the rest of their portfolio, if maybe a touch more drinkable (though that’s probably just due to its relative lightness). Carbonation is moderate, texture is grainy and watery. Dry, at least.
I feel like this review is funny, remembering giving other kolsch’s much better ratings in the past. I suppose that’s a sign of my beer tastes evolving over time. I still appreciate the pretty gold color with its healthy white head and perpetual stream of bubbles. However, the fruity, sweet bread, cereal-y aroma is nice but has gotten old. The crisp, easy-drinking body is nice. The sweet flavor is nice. But it’s just old.. and boring. That’s why this gets a 3 and not a 3.9. haha rjplumer (1318) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Soft grain malt aroma. Yellow golden body with a fluffy white finger thick head. Smooth light sweet grain malt taste. Easily drinkable and refreshing.

Pours clear gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Sourdough aromas. Soft with sourdough and sweet cracked corn upfront turning to flowery heather and hay in the medium length finish. Meh.
