oobawa (1488) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 7, 2017
Shockingly bland kolsch from Rogue, basically another uber-light, pedestrian Americanized take on the style, grass and mild lager esters on top of a restrained but apparent honey sweetness. Not bad, not good, not much of anything. Pours a pretty clear gold with little head or lace. Tartness and grain in the aroma, texture’s good for such a light beer. Good to keep in the fridge for your non-craft-drinking friends, I guess.

Bottle from Total Wine, Fredericksburg. Pours pale gold with a small white head. Aroma slightly grainy with a hint of honey and minor lemon zest. Flavor is smooth grasses, grain, honey. A little earthy. It’s fine.

Pours a hazy light golden yellow. Aroma is lemon zest. Taste is nice and malty more than a normal Kolsch. Crisp dry clean finish. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

glennmastrange (2881) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2017
Bottle. Light to moderate grain for the malt, light herbs for the hops, faint dough for the yeast, with sweet white wine in the background. Head is small, fizzy, slightly off-white, with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is sparkling clear amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes slightly acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is light to medium, slick with a lively carbonation. Not a bad beer, and pretty accurate for what a Kolsch is supposed to be.

Hermod (8004) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 23, 2017
Draught @ Pikkulintu. Poured golden color with a thin white head. Some honey and lots of grainy malts. Flavor has honey, malts, some earthy notes. Somewhat refreshing.

3.3
fidelis83 (2451) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUL 12, 2017
Hazy gold pour with a two finger, frothy, bright white head. Aroma is honey, bread, fruity esters and some spicy and citrus hop notes. Flavor is honey, bread crust, doughy yeast, floral and spicy hops. Light body, dry feel, medium, sharp carbonation. Pretty good, but probably not something I’d drink too often, though I wouldn’t rule out buying it again.
