COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Do you always dive right into the deep end or do you wade in slowly? Do you rush in or do you stop to think about it before you decide? Well sometimes it’s nice to take your time. There’s no need to rush, take it slow, ease in and get it right. And that’s exactly what we did with our Gateway Kolsch; we took the time to get it right. Paying homage to the lagered ales of Koln Germany, this Kolsch style ale is aged a little longer, letting all the flavours mellow, making it one easy beer to drink. Brilliant yellow and clear as a summer’s day, this golden ale is for all of you out there who like to sit back relax and take the time to get it right.

Very Coleen pour. Just a touch hazy. You can still see through it thou.. Lacy white head. No real discern able scent. Surprising amount of taste despite the near nothing scent. Has a stong grassy bitter taste. The type you get in some of those organic salads. There’s noting terrible about this but nothing great either. It’s alright.

Rated based on what Kolsch should be. For a light-coloured beer, wonderful sweet orange-grass aroma. Off-gold hazy appearance. Sure not heavy hoppy but tasty malt-clean lager mix. Really creamy feel. Would have again. Recommend.

Super easy-drinking beer and one of the more popular brews at my local. A hit with the crowd looking to transition to craft beer.

A bit of sulfur, sweet Apple aroma! Sweet Apple taste, some hot dryness, elemental but great.

Pours clear straw yellow with a white head. Aroma and flavours are grass, grain, bread and carmel malts. Clean and crisp tasting.

Pours clear, pale, a touch flat - a bit weak to the eye. Malty and slightly musty to the nose - bread, toffee, grain, not bad. Taste is easy to drink but forgettable, similar to a Euro pilsner. Grain, sweet malt, noticeable German malt character. Pretty straightforward but it does the job.

TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2017
Canette de 473 ml achetée chez The Beer Store (North Bay, ONT) au coût de 2,75$. Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales avec une pointe d’houblons. Apparence: La couleur est blonde pâle légèrement voilée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de céréales avec une pointe d’agrumes et de miel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de céréales en arrière goût. (Rating #7635)

Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
Bright straw color with low activity. Extra foamy white 4 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with poor legs. Flavors of corn, lemon, grapefruits, wheat, hay, soft caramel, noble hops. Sharp straw and cereal feel, with zesty citrus. Slick and smooth full body with extra prickly and crispy carbonation. Medium strength finish, sharp grassy floral dry hops with a dash of citrusy fruits, a bit leafy and flowery, with notes of sweet grains and bread. Really fresh, heavy, and zesty, proper to the style, with the flavors having an american touch. Very tasty and pleasant to drink. The smell is a bit faint, and the carbonation is probably a tad too much. Still makes a solid summer beer. Overall very good quality craft.

Tranquillity (2333) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2017
Canned. Surprisingly light, yellow body with a large white head. The aroma has citrus and malts. The taste is fresh and citrusy.

Malty aroma with notes of grass. Clear golden colour. Clean front with bready flavours. Light body with a lively carbonation. Very pleasant and sessionable.

On draft at The Pour House in Toronto. Unfiltered yellow body, thin white head that is quick to disappear. Aromas and tastes both feature hay, grains, cereals, breads and some caramel malts. A decent Kolsch, but not really up my alley.
