COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Medium carbonation, loose white head which dissipates quickly, golden-straw color and clear body. Subtle malty sweetness with notes of biscuits and honey. Finishes fairly dry, but not bitter. Kölsch is a style of its own. Being one of a few native German Ales, it originated in Cologne. Our Kölsch is not entirely traditional due to our use of American grown hops and malt but nonetheless, we challenge you to find a better version of this style ale.

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of light citrus/orange, faint grain, and a hint of grass. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze from some very fine sediment. It has a one finger yellow-tinged off-white head that settles fairly quickly to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some thin webbing left behind on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate citrus notes. It finishes lightly grassy with a touch of floral notes. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, it’s probably not something most will get excited for, but I think it’s pretty solid and would be a good summer thirst quencher.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 A nice take on the style with a soft appeal but a great beer if you want to do some drinking have been told by many and I agree a delicious surprise.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2012
12oz bottle from Mike, thanks bud! Pours a clear, straw gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipated quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is somewhat sweet grains with some pils malts, florals, and a light grass. Flavor is thinner grains with a light pils malt sweetness, a few florals, and a light grass as this finishes fairly dry and somewhat crisp with a light bitterness before leaving a shorter aftertaste. Light body and a moderate carb. Overall, a decent Kölsch. Light sweetness, some florals, grains, and a light grass. Not bad.

wmubronco1992 (709) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours golden. Very small white head. No lacing. Aroma was sweet floral. Flavor was grainy and a little bitter. Clean and very dry. Solid, but no wow factor. I drank at closer to room temp which was a mistake. This one definitely should be drank cooler. Would try again.

Koelschtrinker (18737) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Wässrig süßer Antrunk, wenig hopfig. Im Mittelteil wird das Bier leider nicht stärker, die pappige Süße steht nun fast alleine im Raum, hintergründig ist die Herbe gerade noch erkennbar. Der Abgang entspricht dem Mittelteil. 5/6/7/5/8/4

Bottle. Wet leaf and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow color with small head. Sweet honey malt flavor with a light hint of grass in the finish. Nice drinkable beer - a bit sweet style-wise.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Looks like chicken broth with a thin white head. Aroma is grassy with pale malts, mild citrus character and a touch of dirty socks. Taste in pretty "un" as in unobtrusive or unappealing. Some light sweet pale malt, a hint of lemon and grains. Some perfumed malt as well.
