COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bier is delicate and pale with less bitterness than a Pils and less sweetness than a Helles. A subtle fruitiness is the hallmark of this classic style from Köln. Along with Alt, this is one of the last ale holdouts in Germany

Bill Becker (1041) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - DEC 28, 2016
This pours a clear pale gold with plenty of foam. The smell is of bready malt and quite a bit of fruity notes. Tastes of bread, grassy hops, and sometimes delicate, sometimes more assertive fruitiness. Medium body and carbonation. Excellent Koelsch!

GTAEgeek (2222) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2016
12 oz. bottle, from the variety pack. Pale, very bubbly yellow, with a huge, foamy, white head. The nose is lemon zest, bread yeast, and some light mustiness. Sweet and grainy, with a fairly assertive, dank bitterness. Medium body, sticky, and sharp. This is a relatively nice, fruity, crisp beer, but it’s overhopped, and too heavy.

tmoreau (4374) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2016
Shared 12 oz. bottles poured to snifters showing a lightly hazed, golden color, with a modest layer of soft white head foam that reduced to a bubbly ring, and spots of lacing. The nose was typical light lager/pils scent, subtle grass & greenery, with a slight hints of apple & lemon. Light to medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste contributed a moderate earthy bitterness that created a nicely crisp & dry finish. Very sessionable.

KyotoLefty (10268) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2016
Tap at the brewery. Pale, clear gold. Light lemony hops in the nose, with a bit of malt. Lemony, light flavor, some bread, creamy and sweetish. Ok.

This was a well made kolsch .. Draft at the brewpub .. . clear-ish gold yellow .. mild foam .. straw and dried corn husk .. light and airy, standard fare .. . . The thing about Gary Numan is, not only is he a pop star right, he’s got a pilot’s licence. Imagine that!

3.2
commonmac (1250) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2015
On tap at the brewery with willyP and wanderkate. Traditional kolsch style glass. Light golden color with a half finger of white froth. Definitely refreshing and light. Grainy with minimal hop presence. Slight metallic note with some sweetness. Not a lot of substance but that’s not the point of this style. Drinkable and easy.
