COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kolsch, the clean and refreshing beer style of Cologne, Germany, quenches summertime thirst. This pale golden ale with a lightly fruity aroma is cold-conditioned or lagered after its primary fermentation. More simply, our Summertime uses only the finest malts and German hops to create the perfect beer for hot Summer days and warm Summer nights.

Pours golden with good sized white fizzy head. Aroma is clean malt with spicy hops - it is very soft. Taste has grainy malt with hints of lemon that is quite gentle. The finish has tart lemon with spicy hops. Nice refreshing summer beer.

Nice easy drinking beer. Like its name suggest, it is a good beer to have while hanging around outside in the heat.

On tap. Pours a light yellow with a foamy white head. Pretty light, easy drinker all around with some citrus notes and faint hops. Yard work beer all the way.

I found this to smell a little skunky, like I do many Goose Island brews. Clear light amber, with a decent fizzy white head. Very light mouthfeel. MIld flavor, with some characteristic Goose Island hopping at the end. Better cold.

Slightly fruity taste. Light, with a pleasant taste. Perfect for a warm evening after a long day at work.

Easy on the palate, very light and refreshing. Pale malts and flowery hops. Hints of citrus fruits. Biscuity flavors. Nothing terribly exciting, but the ladies like it. Good summertime refresher.

I had my doubts about this one. Even though it was labeled as Kolsch, I did not think it would be of a high quality. Goose Island continues to pour out quality beers of all kinds of styles. I’m glad I’m able to get some good Kolsch 12 packs now without having to go to Germany. Highly recommended.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2006 Re-Rated. Confirmed that that bottle was bad. However, had it on tap at Fat Jacks and it was much better. Pours goldenrod with fizzy white head that is quick to disappear. The aroma is all lemon and spice with some weak hop flavor. A good rep of the kolsch style. the flavor is lemon and tart with a slightly oily mouthfeel, with some good malt and a nice german feel to it.

My first Kölsch. 12oz bottle, best when consumed by 09/25/06. Pours a hazy straw with a moderate white head. Aroma of hay and wheat, some pepper as well. Lemony up front, biscuity finish. Don’t really know what to compare this to, but it is a refreshing summer brew for a hot day.
