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.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2007 Slightly cloudy gold with a medium white head. Light, crisp, and hoppy at the start but turns dry and bitter about halfway into the glass. 7,3,6,2,14. Rerate: The more I try this one the more I come back to it when available. A great balance, crisp, thirst quenching, with a great finish. One of my favorite summer beers, it sticks out to me, and I look forward to its release.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 Well, maybe it works on a hot day but it was surprisingly uninteresting in Chicago on a cold snowy April afternoon, either by itself or with a great cheese. Hard to think of much to say about it, either good or bad. Great golden color with a good white head. No real nose. No real taste, malt or bitter hop ... in fact, tasted like drinking slightly off mineral water. Almost no taste at all, other than a slight floral taste. Nasty metalic aftertaste and long lingering bitterness, which would have been refreshing after a malty hoppy beer but seemed silly ... why have a bitter finish on mineral water. Really disappointing. One is enough. Save some money and have some Budweiser. // Slightly more interesting at the brew pub, fresher, more intense, better mouth feel. But I’m going to leave my numbers unchanged, since the bottle reflects the experience most of us will have when drinking this beer.

Hazy golden beer with a small head and a citrusy aroma with some fruit presence from hops. Nice thin fluid with good texture. Good on a hot day.

A nice summer offering from Goose Island, though a better option would be the Bells Oberon from Kalamazoo.

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 21, 2003
Slightly hazy golden color, lemon/citrus aroma with hops, exactly the same in the flavor. Aftertaste is citrusy with some hop dryness. Good, but perhaps I should have tried this during the summer, not on a -5 degree (farenheit) day.

found this in the discount bin of a 6 pack place. i was pleasently suprised. It’s light, very lemony with very little aftertaste. A great palate and an all round good summer beer, end for mid-dec.

This was a shackingly good drink! I don’t dislike Goose Island beers, but they really did good with this Summertime. Nice and clean with a hint of lemon refreshment. No bitter after taste and really a treat to behold for the price.

Light color, medium bite, damn I have sampled enough beers from this brewery.Low ABV is against all my standards, what can I say.Ok for a HOT weather drink, other than that its not feature product here.
