Cloudy yellow colored brew. Fruity aroma. Malty sweetness. Some fruits and light bitterness. Not really an ordinary kolsch.
Draft at the White Eagle, pours clear yellow with small white head. Sweet aroma of malts and honey, citrusy and slightly peppery aroma. Floral. Flavor is light and malty and pretty sweet for its light color and body, definitely citrusy and maybe a slight hint of anise and hop, no bitterness. Very drinkable but not much to it. troopie (2341) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Draught. Poured cloudy yellow with almost no head. Very fruity, spicy aroma, almost like a saison. Sweetish taste, very little bitterness until you get to the finish. Lingering fruity taste, peaches, pears and clove spice. awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2007
On tap at the Kennedy School location. Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a thin layer of fizzy white head. Some fruity yeast greets the nose at first, bringing out some aromas of banana and light pear; not the expectation for a kolsh, but pleasant nonetheless. A touch of crisp, lemony, wheaty acidity adds a clean refreshing touch. Light bodied, gently carbonated mouthfeel. Served a bit on the warm side for the style, which perhaps accentuates some of the yeast aromatics noticed. Clean, refreshing lemony wheat flavor with a touch of lavender hops. Finishes dry, with a wave of hop bitterness that has a harsh stalky, stemmy quality and inhibits the drinkability somewhat.

A golden thing color with a nice head. Good hop aroma and I loved the flavor this was a good summer brew. I’ll have anohter as I sit here and type. Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
@ Bagdad Theater, Portland (not sure who they’re partnered with). Hazy straw colour. Crisp, herbal hop aroma. The malts are fresh on the palate (bready) as are the hops (earthy, herbal). Well-balanced, as close to authentic Kolsch as I’ve had in the US...though the reference is a bit strange as fireflies (while a summer feature they may be) do not exist west of the Rockies.

Draught at Boon’s Treasury, Salem, OR. Slightly hazy yellow color with white head that laced the glass. Aroma was light citrus hops. This came out again in the flavor along with a fresh cereal grain taste. Light and refreshing. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Had this one over the summer at Ram’s Head. Straight from the farm this one, has some grassy vegetal notes and has the slightest bit of bite upon first sip. It gets pretty basic after that. Easy to drink and makes a great sit out on the porch and drink summertime beer. jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2005
On tap at Ram’s Head location in Portland. Somewhat clear golden with a white head. Light grainy aroma with a hint of creamed corn. Moderately sweet. Flavor has notes of grain, corn, light caramel and somef hop bitterness coming in at the end. Medium to light body with medium level of carbonation. Decent easy drinkin’ beer.
