Can from Brewtopia. Pale clear gold with lasting head and lace. Grassy noble hops aroma with a touch of lemon. Bready crackery medium sweet malts with a touch of peach and apricot. Light grassy long bitterness with a little spice. Light body, a little sticky for style, soft carbo. Pretty good. I like kolsches to be a little lighter and drier. .................................................. [Fuck A-B/Inbev] Bif (2237) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - JUN 17, 2017
On tap. Pours a golden color with a white head that faded quickly. Aroma of citrus, bit of malt sweetness and grass. Taste of citrus, light fruit and bit of malt sweetness. Decent bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, crisp clean and refreshing. Easy drinker on a Summer day. Dacrza (961) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2017
DATE: June 2, 2017... OCCASION: a quiet night after a long short week (back from NOLA), and in need of something soft and pillowy... GLASSWARE: Ayinger willibecker.... pours a crisp, crackling golden body that cascades upward to craft a white webbing of head that holds serious clout... two fingers descends in time, but leaves a resilient reminder that the beer is fresh and ready... lemon grass and yeast strains mingle with banana and light biscuit to suggest a pilsner, thought the hops are not assertive at all in that way.. first sip rolls straight to the throat, refreshing with a bit of lingering texture...light bodied, suitable for slamming, but fizzy and creamy enough to be acknowledged...the flavor is lemon grass, hay, a bitterness that holds sway and the maltiness of something stronger... oats, cereal, or some other grain makes for the weightier flavor... at 4.8%, a nonthreatening drink to mow down before or after yard work... could be a bit crisper or cleaner, but the style begs for a bit of simplicity...

Tallahassee. Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz can. Sparkling, medium gold pour, soft, snow white head, decent film of lacing. Aroma has some light buttery accents, light graininess. Pleasant flavor, some buttery notes, light spiciness, some grassiness. Mouthfeel has a decent crispness to it. Nice summer refresher. hotstuff (5142) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 1, 2017
Rated on 6-01-2017. The appearance of this canned beer is a medium sized pure white fizzy, semi-frothy head that mostly diminished, medium yellow transparent body, lively, fast rising carbonation observed, and one ring of lacing. The aroma presents light citrus hops, lightly fruity, earthy, toasty, grainy, and pale malt. The flavor is bready, lightly fruity, lightly sweet, pale malt, and a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is light carbonation, smooth and thin. This beer is light bodied. This is an easy drinking Kolsch beer as there is not a lot going on with its taste. There is more character to the aroma than the taste. It is a bit refreshing on a warm June day. It is a beer that did not lead me to buying again as I have had much better tasting Kolsch beers.

Creamed corn nose. Clear yellow, medium head, good lace. Barley and hay, lemongrass on the back end. Corn husks. Light body, moderate carbonation. Seems more like a cream ale. JDBaker11058 (2153) - Maryland, USA - MAY 27, 2017
appearance: clear gold, with a finger of creamy white head that lingers, leaving good lacing. aroma: bright lemon, cracked pepper, grainy and crackery malts, hint of grass. taste: grainy malts up front, slightly sweet, with crackery toast under that; there’s some lemon zest, then some floral and grassy hops. finish: light hop dryness, slight bitterness, lingering grassy and floral notes, and just a bit of crackery sweetness; zippy, light palate with a nice level of carb. notes: Kölsch is probably my favorite style of beer in the lighter beer family. I’m always seeking the next good one, and it seems like a very easy style to screw up, because I’ve had a lot of bad ones, and very few that are good. This one is probably the top in the style that I’ve ever had. More flavor than most, but the flavors are true to the style, and the palate is absolutely perfect. Can from Village Beer and Wine in Rockville.
