Kentucky Kölsch® is a top-fermented ale, a classic style of beer originating in Cologne, Germany. According to German beer law, only beers brewed in Cologne can carry this illustrious title. Aside from our brewery’s Kentucky location, we are certain Kentucky Kölsch® lives up to these high beer standards. For years, Alltech master brewers have used their very own specialized yeast, which is the single greatest contributor to this remarkably flavorful and award-winning microbrew. Our master brewers’ recipe calls for imported pale malts and malted white wheat to create an exceptionally smooth fi­nish.

Kentucky Kölsch® was renamed from Kentucky Light in Spring 2013 to more accurately reflect its beer style. The light-bodied, crisp ale is a German-style Kölsch ale, a classic style of beer originating from Cologne, Germany. With the increasing savvy of craft beer enthusiasts, the Kölsch descriptor is now better recognized and understood.

Deimos (81) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 29, 2006
Pours light without much head which lingers a bit. Good aroma for a light beer. Drinkable . Hey, it’s a Kölsch, not a stout. I like it.

wombat23 (969) - Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pale straw, clear, white head. Aroma and taste of corn, grains, bread. Frankly, this is pretty awful stuff. Drain pour.

kramer (6293) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear pale straw body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is bready and slightly grainy with a slight cereal note, and just a hint of fruitiness. The flavor is a little off for me, there’s a weird grape juice like fruitiness on the finish that turns me off. Some light cereal grain and crackery malt before that weirdness comes on. Light bodied and a bit clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, pretty poor example of a Kolsch.

JPDIPSO (5865) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Light yellow straw color with a thin head of white bubbles. Sweet grassy grain aromas with hints of white grapes. Some sweet pale malt flavors. Fairly dry in the finish and linger. 7/11

thegreenrooster (4146) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Pour is a hazy straw with a large white head. Aroma is some wet paper bag and burning. Flavor is some tartness from some kind of infection and watery after that. When I saw 1% for the style I said that could not be. Well I was wrong this is terrible.

obguthr (5917) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Lemon and hay nose. Clear golden, thin head. Tart lemon, sugar cane and hay at midpalate, clean finish. Light body harsh mouthfeel. This one turned out wrong, hardly recognizable as a kolsch, just a soured mess.

djd07 (12286) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2016
On tap at Industry. Pours a hazy yellow gold with medium frothy white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is faint wheat and citrus. Thin, wheat, grass, light finish, very bland.

mmmbeer (1399) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2016
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent thin yellow color, white ring about the glass for a head with no lacing. Aroma of hard water, piss that’s been sitting there for a few hours. and nothingness. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is barely detectable, middle is very slim with it being close to water, finish has a slight taste of green apples. Wow- water with alcohol- awesome.

Jow (3648) - New York, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Wow I need to check ratings prior to ordering. Dull golden pour nose is melon, grains and wet paper. Tastes of hints of garbage juice, honey dew, stale hops. Not very refreshing at all.
