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.

I wish I didn’t have to type 75 characters, because all I really want to say is unremarkable.

Bottled. Quite bready aroma and taste. Not as clean of a mouthful that I’m used to from a Kolsch but it’s quite drinkable.

Fine for the style. Boring, but was clean and easy drinking and all the things that make a kolsch. Summer time!

Bottled. Pours hazy light yellow. Aroma is mild lager, bright lemon, decently pleasant bright notes. Flavor is lemon, lager, crisp, refreshing. Nice for a Kölsch.

12 oz. bottle (X3) from MI craft beer sampler 12 pack, served in a shaker on 12-27-15- Poured a lightly turbid transparent darkened yellow color, white ring about the glass for a head. Aroma of wheat and Saaz hops. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt tastes horribly oversweatened to me, at least the finish is somewhat clean and crisp.

Sample at MBG U.P. Fall Festival. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Aroma and taste of malt, mild floral and citrus hops with a clean crisp finish.

holdenn (2116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Light malt aromas. Light lemon and pale malts. Dry herbal hop finish. Nothing bad, nothing remarkable.

Onslow (1521) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear pale yellow brew with one finger of white head that immediately passes. Aroma of light grains, green fruit, a little grass. Taste is light malty grain with some green fruit and slightly earthy finish.Thin palate. I could maybe see quaffing this on a really hot day but even then it would not be a first choice.

Draft. From notes. Meh, somewhat sub par kolsch, lawnmower beer for sure. Drinkable, just not much of anything going on here.

1.2
nuplastikk (6414) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours with a massive infected head and quite disturbing harsh green apple tones. Completely infected. Way gone. Shabby action from Round Barn. Not even close. Black speckles and floaties are not something I look for in a Kolsch. Joke on the consumer.
