This is Occidental’s homage to the delicious ale of Cologne, Germany. Crisp and dry, it is clean and lager-like, with a pleasant, slightly spicy hop profile supplied by German Perle. Very "sessionable."

On draught at Occidental. Crystal clear and golden. Light floral aroma. Tastes crisp, biscuity, malty, and just slightly sweet. Really refreshing. Quite possibly the best kölsch I have had.

Pint can picked up at Brewer’s Haven Boise. Pale golden color with a modest white head. Aroma is soft with grains and grass, a little sweet and malty. Missing the hops in the flavor, but a nice sweet grassy vibe and just a little fruitiness from the yeast. Light grains. Drinks really well.

A really nice kolsch. Crisp, grainy, slight floral and mild spicy hop notes. Light straw colour pour, mild carbonation, a thin pure white head. Really refreshing and bright with a classic lager esque grainy and toasted bread notes. Overall, a nice kolsch.

Capa (3433) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2017
Pale golden with a fizzy white head. Medium to thin body. Zesty hops. Light sweet grain. Very nice.

It pours clear golden with a white head. The aroma had dry bread, smooth Kolsch yeast and cleanness. It has a medium smooth body with light carbonation. The taste has dry pale malt, smooth caramel and minor spicy hops. Solid.

This is a nice refreshing beer for German-style beers. The bitterness is well-balanced. Cheers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crisp and dry, very lager-like, slightly spicy profile that’s typical of the kolsch style. If you’re in the mood for a nice, light refreshing beer, pass on the domestics, and grab this can.

cladinshadows (49) - USA - JUL 27, 2016
Medium-level doughy/bready/grainy aroma with some background fruitiness and sulfur. Winey, No hops in the nose. Brilliantly clear light gold with head that dissipates quickly to very low lacing that lingers appealingly. Medium-crisp taste and mouthfeel - dry but substantial. On the upper end of mouthfeel and flavor for Kolsch, but still strikes a very nice balance of flavors. There is a skunky/grassy character in the finish that isn’t great, but it’s likely due to packaging or age. When brewery fresh this would be a fantastic Kolsch.

At Ken’s Pizza, Portland. Golden body with thin head. Nose is hoppy, grassy. Taste of hops, malts, bread. Fruits in the finish. Okay.

CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2016
Pours a thin, white dissipating head atop a clear light amber body. nose is somewhat corn syrup? Not terribly crisp. Definitely not light - more cardboard and bready. Pretty poor showing.

Hungover (109) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Clean crisp, good grains and balance. Simple fresh and exactly what I was hoping for. Easy drinking with a tidge of extra flavor to give it character.
