Thanks a ton bauermj for this one. Pours a really nice and effervescent straw yellow with two fingers of crackling white head and a storm of carbonation. Absolutely wonderful beer, grassy and bready notes pair wonderfully with just a touch of wet hay and fruity notes from the yeast. A very light malt sweetness pairs well with a touch of citrus rind and spicy hop character. Light body with the perfect citrus rind bitterness on the finish. Man, I loved this.

Bottle courtesy of Vin shared at Franks, Oct 2012. Pours a clear, straw yellow body with nice frothy white head and some lacing. Aroma is wheat, citrus, grass and wheaty malts. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with notes of grassy hops, light floral tones, citrus, wheat and german malts.

ICEatALAMO (1338) - Troy, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2012
bottle. Super light color, almost looks like a typical light beer. The aroma has some citrus in it. The taste is just like I would expect from this style. Nothing special, a very so-so beer. Makes me say meh. Easy to drink which is good I guess.

jcr (2677) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle. Yellow, light gold body. Fizzy, white head. Aroma of toasted grain, grass, straw, plant. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Clean malts, no trace of huskiness. Taste of grass, straw. Some lingering bitterness. Malts are most prominent and not the bitterness expected in a Kolsch and especially from Three Floyds. Still, this is a clean, crisp beer and easy drinking.

PhillyCraft (6885) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle from Scott shared with some friends. Pours a clear yellow color with large fluffy head and nice streaks of lacing. Notes of citrus, belgian yeast, german malts, orange peel, bread, and some grassy flavors. Nice change of pace from the hop bombs we were drinking. Good but this style always seems thin and somewhat bland to me.

Hammy78 (968) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2012
From bomber. Pours an almost clear, true amber with a lot of carbonation, white head that really dies down. Nose is quite grainy, sweet a little bit of fruit. Tastes a little bitter, not my favorite flavor.

22 oz. bomber served in a pilsner glass. A: Pours a clear gold color with a pure white head forming on the pour. Recedes quickly to a thin film. Pretty standard. S: Pretty typical kolsch smell. Light pale malts, some mineral qualities with a light grassy hop note. Sweet, lagery yeast as well. T: Pretty much lines up with the nose. Pale malt sweetness, some slightly ester yeast component. A grassy hop profile is somewhat assertive here, but the malty sweetness really brings it home on the finish. M: Light bodied with a medium high carbonation level. Has a malty sweet finish with a high drinkability. O: Pretty solid flavor profile for a kolsch and it had a little more hop bite than normal which is on par with FFF. It’s a little too cold in Chicago now for this guy, but on a hat summer day this would be great. Seasonal summer six packs would be good. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-06-2012

Now I’m not all too familiar with what a Kolsch or Kolsch style is supposed to taste like, but this isn’t a bad beer. It looks magical. The way the bubbles effervesce the liquid gold. This is probably the closest I’ve seen a craft beer get to the MCB coloration BUT it strays far from the flavoring path. This is a hard beer to describe the flavor. The aroma is kind of fruity, but rather subdued. I detect no hop flavor and no dubious sweetness so I can infer that this is a balanced beer with no side of the spectrum being tipped. Not my favorite, but certainly worth trying once or twice.

Draft. 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 but good for style.
