A clear, crisp beer, Kölsch offers a very slight fruity flavor and aroma. It is light gold in color, with a delicate head. This light-bodied beer appeals to nearly everyone who samples it. Expect to enjoy a slight tang in the finish.

wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Tasted on 8/20/12 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Bruisin’ Ales. Pours clear golden orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is light corny bread malt with nicely bitter hops and a bit of a dusty quality. The flavor is the same, very crisp, clean, and refreshing with a very nice lightly bitter hops bite. The body is light with average carbonation and a long, nicely bitter hops and hint of bread finish. This is a very nice Kolsch.

Wow - this was a delicious Kolsch to stumble across on draft in Asheville, although this brewery is in Kinston, close to my childhood stomping grounds near Goldsboro, SC! This poured an exceptionally textured and foamy golden color, lots of fresh lacing. Aroma is a hint of lemon and grassy hops (but not lemongrass), with some pilsner-ish malt. A little more full-bodied than other thin Kolsches, but still light overall, quite smooth. Slightly fruity, yet also some grassy noble hoppiness, grainy baseline. Overall thoroughly enjoyable and a great example of the style! The whole Blake family enjoyed so much we ordered an extra round for the table!

Bright and clear, with exceptional, even carbonation -- this looks like one of those old beer signs that had the beer bubbles infinitely rising. Nice creamy consistency and the light grassy notes of a kolsch

Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold body with a minimal fizzy white head. The nose is a bit grainy and grassy with some slight honey sweetness, not much in the way of hops. The flavor is rather grainy and soggy tasting with a fairly heavy sweetness on the back end. This isnt a light and quaffable example of the style that Im looking for. It lacks the fruitiness and its mostly lacking in hops. A little heavy and clingy with light carbonation. Meh, pretty poor example of the style.

kingaugusta (270) - Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Pours a very clear blonde with a small white head. Nose is a little sugary sweet with some European hops adding floral character. Mouthful is very light but crispy with lots of carbonation and just enough hops to give it a little bite. Great example of the style and a solid hot weather, easy drinking beer.

shadey (2135) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 5, 2016
12oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods in Atlanta during a HSS conference. Pours a bright bubbly gold with a lively head of tight white soapy bubbles. Aroma is crisp and clean. Grassy and grainy. Flavors are sharp and biting bitterness with just a bit of sweet grain character. Nice and super drinkable.

Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquor. Hazy orange body with slight, medium head. Nose is floral, spicy, skunky. Taste is floral, hops, grains. Prickly texture. Citrus in the finish. Decent.

Draft in a coastal beerhall in North Carolina. Mild malt floral hop aroma. Looks like a kolsh should. Well balanced malt and floral hop taste w a v slightly sweet finish. Great kolsh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
