This is my first kolsch, and if this is indicative of the style it really looks like I’m not going to be into it. Poured an almost transparent gold color (almost like a malt liquor), with a slightly grainy aroma and thick, rocky head. Taste was very bland, slightly sweet, mostly tasted like a macro...would’nt pick up again.

Pours warm gold with almost no head (like my current dating life). Smells like a kolsh. Tastes like a kolsh. Light, smooth,nothing special, but nothing I special either. Why pay extra? Just get a bud light. Jk bud light sux. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jabic (588) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 26, 2017
Ar: Pale, crackery malt; slight sulfur; some apple aroma and light sweetness; fine, dried-flower hop aroma. Ap: Clear golden; medium-large white head with good retention, very thick and frothy, settling into a thick cap, with some clinging sheets of foam on the glass sides. T: Lightly grainy up front; quite clean, with some mild notes of hay, toast, apple, and grape; low bitterness, very soft, with a dried flower flavor; grainy malt, hint of pineapple, chalk, and soft bitters linger on the finish. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation; finish is dry. O: An excellent kolsch; light graininess and relatively clean fermentation profile; quite drinkable; a bit more fruitiness than a lager, but still quite a pure showcase of pilsner malt and noble hops.

Just enjoyed sampling and critiquing this beer during our recording of the second episode of the soon-to-be-released South Carolina Beer Scouts podcast! I was excited to finally sample an authentic Kolsch from one of the original Cologne breweries, thanks to Michael for finding a fresh imported bottle of this! Poured into a pilsner flute, this featured an exceptionally foamy head which retained itself for a while atop some lazy lacing bubbling through the pale-straw body of this beer. Aroma was distinctly of un-salted saltine crackers with some light floral noble hops, mellow and inviting. Flavor was likewise a crackery maltiness with some mild fruity and grassy notes, exceedingly well balanced between the subtle malty and estery notes. Just a slight touch of bitterness. Light-bodied and as smooth as any other Kolsch, I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable and easy-drinking brew!

About as run-of-the-mill as you can get with a Kolsch, grainy and semisweet, light and smooth, hints of fruity lager esters mixing with modest floral hops on the finish. Better than plenty of American takes on the style, but still ultimately leads to the opinion, Eh, it’s just a kolsch.

MNAle (189) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2017
L16155 12:30 5/3/17 Grassy, sour bread aroma. Clear yellow-gold, tall white heat, leaving plenty of lacing. Lots of bubbles on the initial pour, but becoming pretty flat after that. Fruity, somewhat sour biscuit and grass. Thin, light mouth feel. The sourness lingers into the aftertaste. Mild and easy drinking but the sour taste is ever present. Very slight hops bittering in the finish.

kapusil (1432) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 21, 2017
0.5l bottle. Crystal clear golden body with a quickly collapsing white head. Aroma of bread, grains and hay. Taste of bread, grains, hay and a hint of floral hops. Light bodied and effervescent. As most kölsch beers, this one isn’t a flavor bomb either, but it’s clean and refreshing.
