Can from Total Wine in Huntington Beach. Pours light gold with a white head. Aroma is bready and citrus floral. Med body, almost. Flavor matches aroma. Finishes rather bitter. Nice that. Errl (2577) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2014

Aluminum can from Sprout’s: Poured a vibrant yellow tinted liquid that had millions of specs of dust floaties showing up—can’t remember the last time I saw a dusty Kolsch? The aroma was empty and did not have any identifiable smells other than some whiffs of grassy malts. The drink was just as bland with minimal amounts of taste other than a touch of sweetness and bitterness but no obvious characteristic of flavors worth mentioning. Very disappointing and I will stay weary when it comes to Golden Roads since some of their beers have been poor attempts.

This is not a kolsch. And there is no such thing as an American kolsch. Not fruity light hoppy off in style. Not a bad beer but not a kolsch. CraftBrewJudge (10) - California, USA - NOV 11, 2013
This beer is a watery, bland, and poor excuse for a Kolsch. It doesn’t possess the crispness in the finish needed to be a Kolsch style of beer. If you want to try something that is actually close to a Kolsch, try Ballast Point’s Pale Ale or an actual Kolsch. Once again this brewery never ceases to amaze at its low attention to making quality beers. It should be ashamed to call itself a craft brewery. johnbuck100 (306) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2013
16 oz can from store in LA. This is actually decently hoppy for a kolsch. very drinkable. i would take it over a macrobrew can anyday. very sessionable. DedicatedToFun (4003) - Santa Monica, California, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Decent, on tap at the brewery, light and easy to drink beer, thin, small hops, but decent jglanton (18) - Yorba Linda, CA, California, USA - SEP 12, 2013
This beer worked well for me as an accompaniment to my salad. The aroma and taste held hints of pear, and a clean smooth palate with no funky maltiness, made it work well with light food, and in this case better than a wheat beer would have and it was a nice change from the usual options when I want something lighter flavored to begin my meal. It has a touch of sweetness, too, which made for a really good follower to a spicy dish such as the blackened fish that I had.
