This golden sparkling blond ale was brewed to pay homage to a 1000-year tradition rooted in Cologne, Germany. Clear, crisp and easy to drink, the Kolsch of today is lighter than the "House" beer that was served in Cologne 200 years ago - the city that made Kolsch famous. We hope you’ll enjoy it!

LowBrau's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
LowBrau (143) - Tonawanda, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Pours a bright & bubbly pale gold with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. The nose is fruity and spicy. Light body. The primary taste is bitterness, but not overpoweringly so. Light sweetness and lightly sour. Has a spicy hop aroma, along with hints of sweet malt and mustiness. It’s ok, but doesn’t make a big impression - slightly above average overall.

Bottle from Tmoney99 from notes. Pours a slightly clear dark golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have mildly toasted malts, light citrus notes, yeast, pretty standard stuff for a Kolsch. Not as bad as I expected, just nothing to get excited about either.

Aroma is malts/pale malts, mild fruit and a mildly hoppy/somewhat smooth finish.

Bottle from Market Basket Brilliantly clear deep golden color with a small but long lasting bubbly white head. Graham crackery pilsner maltiness with some pomme and pitted fruits. Light floral hops. Crisp light metallic finish. Not horrible but far from a great example of the style. .

Tmoney99 (15133) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate balanced malt and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable beer

Vanilla aroma mixed in the body with a faint malt body of cereal. Has a flat finish.

Jow (4170) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Bottle part of summer mixer hanging out at lake. Golden pour white foamy head. Nose is bready and grassy. Tastes of grass, bread, light herbal, musty basement, touch of green apple. Fine enough palate.

demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2016
Summer mixed 12 pack, 1 of 4 styles in box. Grassy and slightly damp, musky smell. Looks nice. Clear deep golden color, slight white head, lots of visible active carbonation. Flavor is not very pleasing. Some sweet, slight hops, heavy yeast/grain. Just ehhh. Had I known no one was going to drink at my BBQ, I would have just drank from my cellared collection....

Meh. Summer pack. Pretty weak all around. Not offensively bad, but exactly the type of beer that makes me skip this brewer as many times as not. Generic slightly sweet, grainy yellow beer. Like a really well made macro, or a thoroughly boring craft.

Quick3Beers (1515) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Pours an amber from a bottle. Lightly hopped nice example of the style. Easy drinking. Good beer.

ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a malt, grain and fruit aroma Appearance- The beer has that traditional Kolsch color of straw yellow with a medium sized white head. Taste- Grain, malt and fruit. It matches the aroma. Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall- An average Kolsch style beer.
