A creamy head dissipates quickly.
A golden yellow color.

Mix pack fodder. Cereal grainy taste. Some caramel. Not super crisp as kolschs oughta be. dfinney23 (3269) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2016
Clear and crisp but a bit lacking in the interest department, even for a Kölsch. Clear and crisp, light biscuit and fruitiness. mjmoen (536) - - OCT 12, 2015
Pours a crystal clear golden color with white head. Crisp and refreshing on a hot day Nejhleader (1560) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2015
hmm a faint biscuit malt aroma. taste is not too bad a faint citrus hop with a good finish. superspak (5597) - Michigan, USA - JUN 23, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 1/4/2015. Pours fairly crystal clear deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a damn nice kolsch style. All around great robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3/27/15 (Bottle) - Golden pour, good carbonation, white medium foam head. Negligible aroma, and not much taste. Very smooth going down, minimal kick. Meh. HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 27, 2014
355ml bottle. Biscuit and grassy hops, this is quite possibly the most generic beer tasting beer I've ever had. If I ever wanted to some someone what just plain beer tastes like, this would be the best choice. Overall, it is exactly beer.

Yet another Dundee brew that tastes more like a watered down lager than the style it’s actually supposed to taste like. I’m giving this Kolsch (excuse me, "Kolsch-Style Ale") a few fractions of a point because the body and flavor of a Kolsch is supposed to be light. Still, that doesn’t mean Dundee’s take on the style is even a decent representation. It’s not. This ale gets zero points for style or substance.

A- Slightly sweet, cereal, biscuits.
A- Golden orange color, clear liquid, no head.
T- Slightly sweet, watery, subtle honey.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, crisp finish.
O- Pretty boring and not much going on at all. I had this less than 12 hours ago and struggle to remember anything at all about it, it was so unexciting. JHeath99 (1678) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from a sampler. Pours a transparent golden with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma of malts, grasses, and a hint of lemon. Taste is mostly just malts.
