COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Germany, Kobes(brewery waiters) have been serving Kolsch since 1906. But they’re notoriously tough to pin down, always rushing past with grilled potatoes, cabbage, sausages, sandwiches, and big round trays of their namesake brew. And while you might need to speak Germanto order a Kolsch in Koln, you don’t need any such skill to enjoy one here. Ours is light and refreshing with subtle "biscuity" notes and a clean refreshing finish. It’s also considerably less difficult to order. And thats something we can all drink too. Prost! 14°

ben4321 (5904) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 6/21/11

Aroma: The nose is fairly grassy, a little bit of honey, and some bread/grain notes
Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a thick and foamy bright white head and solid lacing
Flavor: Tastes a touch off, it has grass and yeast flavors with a slightly herbal/medicinal finish
Palate: The body is fairly light, it actually drinks fairly nice, clean and crisp with a fairly long finish
Overall Impression: Randomly, my 2nd rating of the night is also my 2nd Kolsch of the night. That’s not something that happens too often. Anyway, this was an alright Kolsch, but nothing too spectacular. It does go down easy though, and ended up being better then I was originally expecting.

garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Purchased in Dundee Seasonal pack at the Mitchell Krogers - Alright, this one poured a fizzy, bronze hued brew with a very slight malty aroma. Tastewise, it does have a pleasant body, but nothing like that found in a true Cologne beerhouse. It’s a good attempt, but it misses the mark!

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Bottle from... I don’t remember. Getting old. And tired. Whatever. It poured a pale gold body with a dincus white head. There was almost no aroma, just a touch of pale malt sweetness. The same was in the flavor along with some creamed corn and a subdued noble hop bitterness. I never used "Meh" before, but this qualifies.

cheap (5425) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Pour is fairly clear pale yellow. Smell is sweett and a little alarming, like many aged high gravity pale lager beers. Yes, taste is a little old like. Comes across a little like medicine. Not really too refeshing nor crisp. Can,t even hold a candle to mission blond or berkshire gold. Does not hide its alky too well. Decent amount iof co2. Rude old beer finish that again comes across somewhat like a high gravity beer. Not impressed, perhaps this was an old bottle. Date code 0055-B-10B(8)29. Just a little better than new hollond kolsch.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Clear yellow gold, thin white head fades quickly. Aroma of grain, apple, some floral hop. Taste is mild but not bad, just plain, easy to drink, light bitter corny/grainy finish

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2011
12 oz bottle, part of a sampler 12-pack, $10.49 at the Navy Base. This beer was one of the weaker offerings. Not bad but certainly not great. Reminds me of Budweiser but the flavor is a little better. Sweet malts, grain, and a lightly grassy finish. I’ll save the rest of this for the next time I mow the lawn.

Block (2339) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Like most of the Dundee beers this one doesn’t stand out much but is still very drinkable and better than a lot of comparable alternatives. Lighter pour with a sweeter aroma. Light body.

JohnBruns (100) - Cissna Park, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2011
12 oz bottle, pours golden with a cream white 1 finger head. Aroma is faint grainy. Taste is semi-sweet and grainy as well with dry ’stale’ finish

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2011
The beer pours a light clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grain and corn, with a little a bit of something off in it. Not a nice smelling beer. The flavor is also not too great. I get some corn and malt, as well as some sugary sweetness. There is a little bit of grape in the flavor, but it is overshadowed by the other grainy flavors. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a beer to seek out.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of honey, grain, and grass. Flavor of honey, grain, nuts, and earth.
