Bottle. Golden with small head. Kolsch with hint of spice and citrus. Substantial grassiness. Quite pleasant.
Pours a light cloudy yellow with a white head and very active carbonation. Aroma of yeast and lemon. The taste is lightly lemon with a creamy middle ending with a lemon meringue finish.

22 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served 10 minutes out of the fridge in a Zywiece lager glass. Enormous soupy head topping a pale, cloudy golden body that clears up slowly just as the head diminishes - it’s quite lovely to watch...biscuit and cracker aromas in a fairly intense malty nose that offers light hints of dry straw and a hint of honeysuckle...lovely body balances those pale malts with a faint touch of honey sweetness, and light but growing grassy/hoppy bitterness towards the finish, faint mineralic hints...body is light and quaffable, but full enough though at times it does seem just a tiny bit watery...overall pretty great stuff; after a couple of disappointing re-tries and a few other recent first-time samples I’ve been wondering if this brewery is losing it’s mojo, this goes at least a little ways towards proving that thought misplaced. ryanscourt (1454) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Pineapple aroma. Nice thin crisp body with a pineapple juice and lemon zest finish. Slight earthiness to the finish. mrjaxson (570) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2016
A bit of freshly baked biscuits and sliced lemon on the aroma. The medium body gets a bit more sweet as the beer warms, though there is just the slightly hop bite. Excellent summer beer enjoyed on tap in Shorewood, WI, at Draft & Vessel with the doors and windows open. emusche (209) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Pours clear gold with a sticky white head, very clingy. Aromas of rice, lemongrass, straw. Taste is lemon, mild tart, rice, soapy bitterness. Decent mouthfeel; clean, smooth, very crisp. This probably suffers somewhat due to the fact that Kolsch brews aren't really my thing. It's not bad, and it's probably even a very solid example of the style, but I still find it lacking compared to the big stouts and fruity IPAs that are my wheelhouse.

22. Thanks, C! All of these were so rad. Pours a hazy medium amber with a loose white head. Clean caramel and light herbs on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. No heavy sweetness, just a nice toasty presence. Very clean and drinkable kolsch. Mild finish. DialSquare (4976) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2016
Bomber from Giant Eagle Grandview: murky yellow gold pour, white head. aroma of straw, biscuity. tastes are lightly sweet lemon, grain, slight tropical vibe. nothing crazy, but easy drinking. jgb9348 (6189) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Clear golden coloured body with a very large, six centimetre tall off-white head that shows trillions of bubbles rising from the bottom - nice! Aroma of yeast, light malt, rice, corn, a hint of resinous hops, some lemons and a bit of bread. Light-bodied; Very mild malt notes with some rice and grain and a very subdued citrus flavour with the faintest amount of hops noticeable. Aftertaste is almost as bland, but some light yeast comes through along with the malt - that’s it, absolutely no complexity. Overall, an average beer at best - and at worst, a subpar beer with not much flavour and one that is WAY overpriced. People should get over some reputation ratings on this one, it simply isn’t a great beer and definitely not worthy of any high marks, period. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from King Richard’s Wine & Spirits in Michigan City, Indiana on 09-September-2015 for US$9,99 sampled at home in Washington on 12-June-2016.

Light golden color with a white, airy head. Aromas of noble hops abound along with sweet pale malt. No this is not a Kolsch, but it is a fine beer. A mix between a German pils and kolsch. Clean and malty, with an extra zip of hops. 6/12

Bottle from Crown Liquor, Indianapolis. Pours a golden color with 1 inch of white head that retains well. Mild aroma of grains, soap, and freshly dried linen. Flavors is similar to aroma with the addition of lemon and grass. Lively carbonation and light body. Refreshing and light.
