Found this one bottled at Food Lion in Nags Head, North Carolina. I’m not a big fan of this style overall, so I think I rated this one a little low, but ultimately it’s a crisp, slightly fruity and mild sessionable beer, especially refreshing on a warm day.

Tallahassee, Fl - Proof Friday night tasting - 12 oz bottle. Light sparkling golden pour. Little bit of a white head. Crisp, grassy aroma, with a touch of pepper. Clean and crisp flavor some buttery accents, peppery notes. Mouthfeel is slightly carbonated and slightly dry. Decent Kolsch.

12 oz. bottle from Quik Stop Damn you internet for eating my first review! Ar: Clean, honey-malt aroma with a bit of honey. Ap: Nice clear gold with a 3/4" fluffy white head. T: Very nice, slightly sweet honey maltiness up front. The finish is mildly hopped and clean, with a nice lemony note. P: Relatively thin with assertive carbonation. O: My first Kolsch, this was very enjoyable. I can’t wait to knock a few of these back in the heat of the summer!

Tap at Blind Tiger Local Food Bash. Very pale golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma is quite fresh and grassy with a bit of light pils malt crackery flavour. Fresh, balanced and quite tasty. The faintest kiss of estery character. Excellent balance.

12oz Bottle – Beer Mongers – Portland, OR
Golden in color, slight haze with a thin head. Light malt and hops aroma. Good balance with the malt and hops this was easy drinking and finishes quite dry. Good hot day beer.

Straw colored with minimum head and light lacing. Taste is typical grassy malt with a fair amount of bittering. Drinkable, but not memorable.

Bottle. Yellow color, white head. Aroma of black pepper. Taste is exactly true to the style. Not exciting, but accurate.

Yellow beer out of the bottle with a thin white head. Nice white bread toast and some lemon citrus in the nose. Crackers and buscuit maltiness with a nice light lemon citrus note. Clean and crisp.

Bottle. 12 oz. Split with and courtesy of James. Pours a light golden, opaque hue with a modest, white, fizzy head. Aroma is initially of stale urine, but eventually opens up to some lemon. Stale sweat in there as well. Thin, watery body with a stale, slightly bitter/tangy body. Finish is calm and mellow. Good for the style, I guess, but I would never drink this again.
