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.

TChrome (1461) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Appearance is, well, rather macro swillish. Medium pale gold color with a mostly diminishing egg white head. Aroma is restrained with some light spiciness and a mild suggestion of hops. Flavor betters the aroma and appearance. Flavors detected include decent hoppiness a bit of white pepper and the finish is dry and lightly bitter. This very well named and makes an excellent thirst quencher on hot days.

There was almost no aroma to this out of the tap at Goose Island. The beer was mild, with little to no complexity in the flavor. It was smooth and extremely drinkable, par for the course for a summertime beer. I don't think it is anything special, though.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2004 Light grass in the aroma. The hops is very light and this is obvious for the style. There is nothing exciting happening here. However, it is still very refreshing.

Hazy yellow, white head, and a good deal of lace. Aroma has hints of apple and citrus. Full mouthfeel with low carbonation. Slightly slippery. Sweet and satisfying.

Well autumn is at hand and I’m drinking the summer beer that BigBadBear63 sent Cheers, thanks and me again!
Pale golden body with a serious mound of cotton for the head, I’m talking 4” or more. Nice crisp malt aroma and flavor, lemons, fresh rising bread dough, but mostly barley and lemon zest. The finish is smooth as a freshly luffaed butt; this is texture I’m talking about not aroma or flavor! Dry- lemony- mostly hoppy –yeasty finish- I like it!

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2005 A good example of the style. Looked exactly as it should, smelled fresh and hoppy, tasted fresh and hoppy too. If you can find some, definitely give this beer a try. It’s a great quaffing beer, nothing too complex, just a simple, refreshing and tasty ale to drink ice cold on a hot summer day.

Ellbert (7) - USA - NOV 1, 2003 does not count
The beer looked wonderful. It was a little couldy but it had a beautiful white head and laced wonderfully. The smell was ok. It was full of grains and a little malt. The taste reminded me of what straw would taste like. It tastes like there was a lot of wheat malt used in this. There wasn't much sweetness and it wasn't very refreshing to me. Not enjoyable.

Light goldern beer with little head. Refreshing, crisp and drinkable with a lemony taste. Little malty present but a nice but light hoppy bight. Not bad.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2003
Very light golden, little to no head. Light grass and a touch of citrus sourness. Dry at the front getting towards lemon, not all that sour though, just reminiscent of lemon. Spritzy and dry with a somewhat roasty hop presence. Might not be the freshest sample, but I reckon there should be more flavors noticeable than what were.

Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Straw colored, hoppy sulphury nose, well carbonated. Refreshing with good malt/hop balance but with soft palate and dry finish.
