Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2010
Bottle. Pours aclear, honey-gold. Very light, white head. Some caramel malt on the nose, along with some fruitiness. Flavor is reasonably sweet, some nice caramel notes, some bready sweetness. Finishes with some pleasant bittness, lightly earthy. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A pretty good beer; a bit more complex than your average summer ale.

Oakes (17680) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2008
Orangey-amber colour. Decent nose has caramel, diacetyl. Lightly fruity palate, a little overwhelming on the diacetyl. Not so summery in that respect. And I’ve never had a butterbomb kolsch before.

DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 30, 2012
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear golden with a medium white head. Overripe fruits aroma with pear, prickly pear and banana. Sweetish flavor with malt, somewhat bready, fruits, light yeasty hints, and a finish with some spicy hops bitterness. Medium-bodied. OK.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2005
(12oz bottle) Crystal clear amber body topped by medium off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, bread. Taste is medium sweet, bread, caramel, light pepper, lemon. Some earthy and light grassy in the finish. Light-medium body, light stickiness, easy drinking. Seems to have more the characteristics of an alt than a kolsch.

12 ounce bottle from the Wine Cellar (I think that’s the name) in Staunton, VA. Pours a clear golden color with a medium head. Average head retention and lacing. Aroma is toasted malts with fruity citrus notes. Taste is bitter hops, toasted malts and citrus. Medium bodied.

hopdog (12549) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Poured a medium, clear golden color with an averaged sized off white head. Aroma of oranges, grass and some malts. Tastes of the same and a little nutty. Medium sweetness to it with a light hop presence. Crisp finish. Thinner body for my tastes.

Bottle. Lemon, barley malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Slightly sweet lemon malt and moderately bitter herbal hops flavor. Not bad.
