COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While known for their lagers, German brewers also produce terrific ales. French Broad’s Kölsch is faithful to the great German ales found in Köln. Golden in color, with a refreshing crispness, pleasantly sweet malt finish, and distinctive German hopping.

Patrickctenchi (6693) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Slightly hazy yellow-gold with a small white head. Grain, light fruit aroma. Flavour is grassy, fruited, sweet...with a slight citric tartness. Light and refreshing.

queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle. Sweet grainybarley malt aroma. Hazy deep gold with a small white head, poor retention. Barley malt, and very light grassy flavor. Body on the light side of medium, soft carbonation.

3.5
Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Very clean grainy and grassy aromas with hints of light fruit. Bright clear golden with a small but respectable head. Balanced with notes of grain and floral hops. Light bodied and very refreshing.

Cybercat (6036) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Comes out of the tap a clear golden, bit of a white head. Malty aroma has an overtone of pear. Crisp, malty flavor has a firm note of pear and a hoppy undertone. Texture has only average thickness but good fizz, and leaves behind a fairly persistent tingle. A gateway to what? Perhaps a good "gateway" beer to wean people off the industrial swill.

Aurelius (5499) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2013
Thanks to LuckyDog for bringing this back from the ACC tourney. Very pale, clear beer; bad label. Dry, grainy aroma. Lightly sweet, mildly tangy, a little lemon nice flavor. Generally crisp. Light bodied and drinkable without obvious flaws.

Clear and pale yellow color, not a huge head, but good carbonation. Faithful to the kolsch style.
