Though our Kolsch is offered all year long on draft, we do feature it in 12oz. bottles as our Summer "Seasonal" beer. Hale’s version of this traditional German light ale won a Gold Medal at the Great American Beer Festival in 2010! It is similar to pilsner in flavor, light, subtle and thirst quenching. 5.1% ABV 10 IBUs Malts: Pilsner ~ Torrefied Wheat Hops: Saaz ~ Sterling Original Gravity: 12° Plato

imdownthepub (15062) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2017
Canned, 355ml from Honest Brew of Crystal Palace, London. Clouded gold with short white head. There was a mixed start to this, boiled cabbage was the first impression but this was followed with a sweetish, if slightly tinny, maltiness. There was a hint of mustiness from an aggressive carbonation. Possibly the saver for me was the Saaz hop hit, lime and lemon notes. Just okay really.

Can, Brewklopedia, Leicester. Hazy yellow gold with a white head. Toasted grain with corn. Hints of lemon with funky mushroom. Traces of tinned pineapple syrup. Some cabbage. Herbal.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2017 12 oz can, gifted by lutton, and paired with football. Definitely an 11 am, a lot of football games to watch kind of beer. A light golden pour with tons of carb, rocky head. A clean, slightly floral, inviting grain aroma. Flavor is crisp, cool, simple to drink. Some fruitiness hiding in there. Refreshing. A nicely put together kolsch, with lots of right going for it. UPDATE: Draft pint at Toronado for Pint Night. Kegged today. Awesome! This beer deserves more credit. Delicious, and exceptional for the style. Drink fresh.

Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - OCT 16, 2016
Can bonused to me by luttonm - thanks! Keeping me company tonight while I grade (ugh). Clear gold pour. Aroma is combo of honey, biscuit, corn, and a hint of apple. Moderately sweet, minimal bitterness. Goes down easy, light body. Carbonation is a tad on the soft side. Overall: I know it’s getting on to fall, but this’d do just fine on those last few days that are still clinging to summer.

allmyvinyl (10847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 14, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2016 Can from Beers of Europe. Pours clear golden orange with a short-lived thin white head. Aromas of tinned green beans, light sugar. Taste is cereal grains, faint grassy astringency. Thin finish.

2.5
RichTheVillan (8042) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Can from Cotteridge Wines; clear yellow pour with a bubbly off white head, aroma has citrus and some grain, taste has grainy malts, vegetable stock and some lemon, hint of peach, not a good combo.

2.8
bulldogops (2726) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2016
Rating #1994 2015.09.27 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 4, Beer 96 – Draught at taproom/brewpub. Pale straw coloured pour, bubbly white head, no lacing. Aroma is clean, lots of grassy, earthy notes. Medium carbonation, light body - nice clean mouthfeel - nothing astringent - and a vaguely present earthy bitterness that rounds this out well.

2.9
luttonm (6565) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Can in Seattle. Thin foam, pale clear yellow. Eggy, sweet aroma, lots of tea-like malts. Pale, chunky malts, not crisp at all. Warm, creamy body. Not great.
