Bottle from Fred Meyer. Medium golden in color. Grainy nose with a little malt. A little cardboard as well. Grains and malts up front. Moving into a little grassy hop flavor. A touch thin, but still pretty clean. Pretty tasty and refreshing. GIJOE (1196) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Pour is a light amber. Aroma is faint but sweet malt. Taste is balanced. Finish is crisp and clean. Average.

My first Kolsch beer.Maverick34 (3206) - New York, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Pours a straw color. Barely any head to speak of. What head it does have leaves pretty good lacing. I’m not impressed.
Smells great. It’s very bright. Very clean and citrusy. Oh, like spring! I don’t know exactly what it is about this, but it smells amazing.
Doesn’t taste as citrusy as it smells. Doesn’t really taste like a lager. But, it’s really good. It’s well balanced. Is it sweet, is it bitter? I can’t discern anything in particular, but again, it’s really good.
Mouthfeel is great. It’s very light, very drinkable. Almost like a wine cooler. Finishes maybe a tad bitter. Wow! It;s really really good.
Overall, if not for the poor showing in the pour, this could easily be one of the best beers I’ve ever had. It’s delicious. It’s fresh. It’s clean. It smells great. It finishes great! Not only do I want more of this, I want more of the style!
Bottled boring yellow. Skunk aroma plus the barest hints of rye. Meh. Nothing really good. Quick3Beers (1201) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Pours a kind of piss color from a bottle, quick flash of effervescence with little retention or lacing. Aroma is barnyardy, flavor is the same with some biscuits thrown in, like someone just threw some biscuits into a barn, like, here you go barn. I’m a little drunk.

Bottle: It has a straw yellow color with a white head and strong carbonation. The aroma is barnyard/Hay and the flavor is grain and slight bit of lemon. Very light body with a thin tongue feel. The finish is slightly dry. Bosco (316) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Clear lemon yellow with thin whispy head and lacing. Missing the bitter kick I was hoping to get from the rye. Otherwise not very complex with a sweet finish.

Bottle into a larger glass. Pour is a light golden color. Aroma is low but sweet malts. Taste is rich and smooth. Finish is crisp and clean. Strykzone (7302) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2015
Pint at Joe’s Pizza in Edwardsville. Very clear golden with only a little foam on top. Grassy with soft fruit. A tiny honey flavor at the finish. Soft malts and lemon. crossovert (12631) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Draft. Golden pout. This isn’t a koelsch. It is a very fruity golden ale that is pleasant enough.
