COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that lasted a little while and had some nice lacing. The aroma was super light of a grain malt, grassy and floral hops and a soapy yeast with a hint of lemon. The taste was lightly sweet and mildly acidic with touch of lemon at first and slightly bitter with a large does of yeast and a hint of citrus at the end. The flavor lasted an average time with a yeasty-citrus taste lingering on for a little while. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with the carbonation being rather soft. Overall this was a nice light refreshing Kölsch. Although nothing special really stuck out it was quite solid for the style.

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

kramer (6908) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2017
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 (286) - 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 (2166) - 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.
