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.

2.9
nearbeer (5368) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Draft pint. Clear golden with a lasting creamy disc of foam. Nose is mildly lemon. Mild flavor blend of lemon, dry grass, caramel, and toast. Nice finish of toasted nut and honey. Near-medium body has medium carbonation and is just to the sweet side.

3.4
coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 5, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Poured golden with a medium-sized sparkling white head. Aroma is spicy, bright German hops and a little bit fruity/malty. Flavor is mild hop bitterness, lightly sweet, mildly fruit. Carbonation is crisp and effervescent. Mouthfeel is medium. A well done Kolsch. Would be great during the summer.

3.8
nuplastikk (6216) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2012
22oz bottle picked up in Asheville. Pours a true to style hazy golden-tan, with a thin, respectable head and some lively rising carbonation bubbles. Creamy, classic beer taste, really well executed. Soft and delicate, I get a little brewhouse butter in the aroma, very faint. Minty orange hop balance. Clean. This is a really great stateside example of the style, refreshing.

3.4
dchmela (3062) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2011
From the 22oz bottle. Hazy pale yellow pour with a huge white head. Grainy, earthy noble hops and hints of yeast fruitiness in the aroma. Crisp malt body with a light earthy hop taste. Taste session beer.

3.5
Braudog (6674) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Draft at the brewery. Bright golden and clear. Crisp and malty with a nice little tangy finish. Fairly authentic, even if the warehouse setting isn’t quite Cologne. (#4327, 10/7/2011)

2.9
Travlr (24292) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Draft. Clear yellow color, small white head. Aroma of white pepper and malt, taste is similar. Plain.

3.1
tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 5, 2011
on draft at barleys. clear yellow pour with no head to speak of. mild lacing on the glass. very good kolsch flavor. its a great summer beer by standards has a mild hop flavor mostly of grassy hops mild malt body. decent enough to try again on a hot summer day.

3.3
DiarmaidBHK (4785) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2011
A kolsch is never going to score very high in this system. The aroma is not much to speak of. Very crisp clean taste. Pours golden with an inch of foam and a great deal of effervescence. Fantastic summer beer.
