COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Escaping from winter’s darkness, this hazy golden, unfiltered Kölsch style creates a fresh start. Our take on the classic hybrid style grom Cologne, Germany, combines the subtle fruit notes of an ale with the smooth crispness of a lager for a bright, refreshing brew to help escape those lingering cold days.

higgsbison (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2017
November 2017. Light bodied and sweet. Malty with a light hop balance. No real character to speak of. A crisp drinkable brew but certainly not one I would ever seek out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cajun (541) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle - Pours hazy gold with white head. Lemon, hay, and spiced apricot in the nose. Flavor of lemon peel, cereal, hay... with a bitter finish. Light bodied.

SG111 (2033) - New York, USA - JUL 4, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2016 Straight from the bottle. Aroma is caramel, Cap?n crunch, malt body, sweet cereal grains. Not bad. Flavor is sweet caramel, again, some sweet cereal grains. Not bad. I can dig it. Sweet as hell, but if you?re in the mood.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy, lemon-gold, with a white, tight head that lasts a while. Smells slightly sweet (like brown sugar) with hints of lemon and banana. Taste is medium sweet but I can’t really identify any particular flavors. It has a medium body with a slightly creamy texture. Carbonation seems a bit high, and the finish is long and sweet.. Overall, I would consider this a "people-pleaser" beer. It’s a bit sweet and doesn’t have any off-putting flavors. However, it also means there’s nothing unique about this beer and therefore has no identity. Basically, this is the kind of beer that you have at your backyard barbecue because you know almost everyone will like it. But it’s not necessarily one that you’d tout to your beer friends.

Pours a golden yellow/amber. Aromas of lemon, grains, celery. Flavor is crisp, dry, sweet malt, and a mild hop.

prawlie (1676) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2016
Bottle from Walmart. Slightly cloudy gold. Better than most Kolschs that I’ve tried. Crisp and bitter.

3.5
OnTheTrail (583) - Virginia, USA - APR 10, 2016
Pours pale yellow, good sized white head. Aroma is spicy and malty. Taste is a pleasant balance of spice, malt an d light hops. Reasonably enjoyable, even in Springtime.

Metalchopz (3536) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2016
Purchased in Vermont in their Cabin selection 12-pack. Pours a slight hazed golden-yellow colour with a frothy white head, good retention and creamy lacing. Citrus aromas with light malt. Caramel malt flavours with some decent hops in the finish. The grain cereal lingers. A nice Limited Release, but not something I would go would go out of my way to grab.

chinchill (5318) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2016
12 oz bottle in Florida. Large off-white head over a hazy golden body. The aroma has a nice interplay of hops and malts with some lemony and spicy notes. Strong and hoppy flavor for style. The label does say it’s a hybrid, and that’s quite clear in the flavor, as is the success of this tasty, lemony "kolsch".

4.2
ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly yeast. The taste is a mildly bitter wheat / yeast taste. A good beer
