Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a nice gold color with a small white head. The nose is a little light with slight grain notes. It’s a little sweet on the tongue with notes of light honey, grain and a slight bitterness on the back end. Fairly clean finish. Not terrible per se, but not the greatest Kolsch.

ajnepple (5629) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2013
12 oz bottle from Wilbur’s. Gold and slightly hazy with a small white head. The aroma is light citrus, light herbs, pretty mild. Similar flavor with light spices and biscuits/bread, light sweetness. Light, thin body with a crisp, clean feel and average carbonation. Even on a hot day, it was pretty meh.

Labeled as a blonde ale, listed a kolsch, not good for the style either way.

NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours golden with an amber hue, huge white head. Light fruity aroma with a touch of hop. Really refreshing. Light hops, citrus and sweet fruit malts. Light in body. Found on end of season loose bottle clearance. Not bad for $1.15.

From a bottle poured a copper color with a fair amount of head. Light malty flavor with a quick finish.

Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Thin hazy straw colored head. Bubbly and crisp but with a strange sort of sourness to it. Not a german or dutch kolsch by any means but I like it when a brewer actually makes an attempt on my favorite style. Very drinkable.

BillWyce (1045) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2012
From notes: Poured clear straw color with a 1-finger white head. Mild lemony aroma mixed with a grainy note and a touch of yeast. Body is light-to-medium and slightly oily. Mild lemon flavor with biscuity yeast in the finish, with peppery and grassy notes as it warms.

yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Pyramid Curve Ball Blonde Ale is a very sparkling, golden ale with no head and a turbulent surface. It has a bright, lemony aroma with light grain, maybe wheat. It’s light bodied and crisp. It leaves my mouth feeling like I just ate an apple. It’s lightly flavored with a grassy bitterness at the finish. There seems to be a very light sweetness throughout. There are hints of lemon, apple and pear. This was a good choice after mowing the lawn.

DruncanVeasey (8058) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle, Sandy Lane, CA, 31/08/12....and my last beer in California. For the time being. Gold under a big bloom of shrinking head. Boiled vegetables, coriander aroma with a dollop of butter. Soap, almond and coriander-like leafiness on the palate with cooked veg and card off-notes. Not attractive.
