Our take on a kolsch style ale that is soft on the palate with a delicate malt flavor. Balanced with a touch of wheat and honey notes .Dry and wine like with a flowery hop finish.

Bottle from thagr81us. Thanks Calton! I've been waiting to try this for a while. Bottled 23 Feb 2010.

Light yellow with a dense egg-shell white head with excellent retention. Moderate lacing is present as well. The nose is quite excellent. Light, bready, fruity, a little wheaty, a little honey, a little citrus, there's a lot going on. The hop character has a light earthy spice as well. As it warms, the floral honey character grows. I really dig this.

The palate opens light with a blend of bread, raw wheat, a mild grain character with some grainy astringency. Mildly fruity and honey-like in the mid-palate, my first few sips have a slight butteriness that decreases as it breathes. Hop character is light, a blend of delicate spices and a little citrus-like, more an herbal citrus rather than a fruity citrus. Light in body with moderate carbonation, this beer does feel a little slick on the palate. That slickness, along with the mild astringency, takes away from the beer. Enjoyable stuff, I'd drink an awful lot of it. I'd argue that the Stoudt's Koslch is better, though

It's hard to find a good Koelsch, but COAST just made the search a little easier. It has the nice golden appearance of a German style Koelsch. This beer just looked refreshing, as it was 100 degrees out that day. The crips, clean taste was everything I hoped it would be, and one of the best examples of the style I've had since I had authentic ones in Germany. I could drink this beer all day, no problem. A fantastic example!

22 oz. bomber from Five Points Bottle Shop, Athens, GA. Poured in to a flute.

Appearance: Pours a pale, light citrine - that is, a faintly green-ish yellow gold - transparent though not radiant, with a fair amount of gentle-looking and evenly paced carbonation, of average size and disposition, perambulating upwards to a half finger of virginal snowy head with surprisingly good retention for a beer of this style. Even after it begins to fade, the remnants of the head have good cling, with a firm collar and plenty of crisp surface dusting. The lacing on this one is also surprisingly nice, and for a brief moment had me considering knocking this up to a 4.5, with plenty of full and uniform patches with interweaving intricate arms.

Aroma: Bright and simple cereal grains meld with cloves, faint peppery hops, spicy, freshly mowed grass, and a few other flashy fruit notes. A pretty complex if subtle aromatic mixture.

Taste: Sweet, golden malts - surprisingly rich, wholesome, flavorful, not the typical neutral, light flavorless malts you get in so many beers that look like this - suggest wheat, well-attenuated wildflower honey, and dry, biscuity cereal grains. These blend very nicely with a great amount of slightly fruity esters - very light, bright, and high on the tongue - some mild hop bitterness, and tons of great grassy, lightly spicy hop notes. This is one flavorful kolsch that fits all the good notes you'd expect to get out of such a brew.

Mouthfeel: A little uneven - likely by virtue of the thinner body, the relative attenuation of the malts, and the high (but not too high) level of effervescence in this one - but in a bright, crisp, sunny, bubbly way that isn't offputting and instead I'd have to just call "noticeable." All of the aforementioned, though - the dryness, the thickness of the body, and the level of effervescence itself - are nice, even if the unfortunate byproduct is worth a slight point loss.

Drinkability: I feel an oncoming urge ... someone find me a lawn to mow, stat! This is a fantastically easy-drinking beer, and I was a little blown away when I saw it really was only 4.8% abv (and how fantastic that it's offered in a 22 oz. format!). A summer beer to be envious of, or to enjoy copiously if you are fortunate enough to live in South Carolina, so for those who do, drink up, and drink up plenty!

Poured into a pint glass on 6/14/10

Bottled on 5/14/10

Thanks to PDXHops

Very light yellow color, straw-like; slightly pale. Two fingers of active foam with lots of bubbles rising to the top. Consistently thin retention. Impressive lacing.

The smell of grass, wheat & hay is plentiful; light & airy. Ever-so-subtle hop hints, mild lemon zest. Earthy with a slight mustiness. Buried in back are notions of biscuit & yeast. Overtones of honey sweetness.

Everything that imparts flavor is done with tact; a "greater than the sum of the parts" sort of thing. A mild spiciness leads off & pairs exceptionally with modest swaths of lemon zest. Wheat & grass tones are settled throughout. Toasted malts manifest toward the finish. Integration is awesome; everything in it's place. Not overly sweet.

32/50 Kolsch is light in body. Initially I expected rather high carbonation (after observing the pour). Indeed, with each pour the carbonation is rather prickly toward the beginning, but it mellows over time, allowing a different take on the flavor components. The finish is zesty & somewhat dry.

This is definitely a case of "less is more." Drinkability is superb. The only way I imagine this could be better would be on tap. Recommended with ease. On a side note - COAST, thank you for dating your bottles.

Thanks to md655321 for shipping this northwest in a recent trade. And boy, am I glad he included this one. Split with the next-door neighbor after a lawnmowing session. And eventually another neighbor joined in, as well. The sight of drawn beer glasses on a beautiful summer night draws people...bottle dated 4/2/10.

Pours a kolsch, sun-dried straw yellow with snap/crackle carbonation. Smell is faint, with a touch of the summer solstice, hay bales, & just cut wheat. Very nice.

32/50 just set a new kolsch standard for me. The wheat is light, offset with a perfect touch by the gentle malting & a subtle sweetness rounding off the edges, perhaps from the honey mentioned on the label. Hops wipe their feet & smile but never become intrusive. Dry, light, crisp, & I looked down regretfully at the empty bomber beside me when it was over.

Damn excellent beer & that was created for a 78 degree summer evening with friends. Well, done. COAST.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy pale golden color with a two finger marshmallow head; impressive lacing, too

Smell: Cracker malt and grassy hops with a squeeze of lemon

Taste: Opens with the cracker malt and while the grassy and lemon flavors arrive early, the hops and the malt waltz back and forth through mid-palate; after the swallow, the malt adds a hint of honey; the finish is crisp and dry

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Wow, if every Kölsch tasted like this they would be my go to beer style all summer long

Bomber consumed about a month after the bottling date, poured into a nonic pint glass.

Pours out a pale gold with a bright white head that's initially a light and frothy 2 fingers, but slowly settles into a denser 1 finger layer that leaves some nice crackly lacing from top to bottom.

Pleasantly light nose of husky grains, light fruitiness and some floral notes. Aside from a delicate malt sweetness, the flavors are surprisingly lively given the smooth aromas. There's a grassy bitterness with a spicy bite of freshly ground white pepper. Finishes quite crisp and crackery with a bit of lemony tang. Medium-light bodied with lively carbonation.

Overall impression: Extremely refreshing and enjoyable brew. Highly recommended.

On-tap at Charleston Beerworks.
This has got to be the palest yellow I've seen. It's not urine pale like most macros. This is such a pale yellow it makes me think, "now, this is a real session beer."
I'm not getting much in the aroma but I think that's more b/c of the bar and less to do with the beer. I get some faint grassy type hops in the nose and not much else.
This is good. It's not going to smack you upside the head but instead it will just make you nod and say hmmmm this is a good beer. Sweet malts mixed with some light floral and grassy hops. It's the balance and simplicity that I enjoy in this beer.
Very light bodied and easy to drink. Nice beer to sit back and session for awhile while playing pool or skeet ball.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden straw color. Nice fluffy white head that leave moderate lacing and hangs around a while.

S: Fruity, yeasty, and light floral hops.

T&M: Very crisp. Floral and mild malty sweetness that fades to a more fruity hop taste and ever so mild bitterness. Nicely balanced.
Fine carbonation that finishes dry.

Coast is defintely the BEST local brewer I've tried in recent years here in the Carolinas. Way to go COAST! Keep it up.

Poured from a bottle (4/20/10) into a pint glass.

Clear golden pour. Flurry of bubble activity in the glass. Three fingers of plush white foam retain very well. Gobs of lacing stuck to the glass.

Aroma kind of reminds me of a pils. Somewhat wheaty and musty. A little grainy, as well. There's a honey-like sweetness, and like floral hops.

Flavorful kolsch. Sweet malt, some tart wheat, and a flowery hop finish.

Light bodied, appropriate carbonation. Tingly, yet still somehow smooth. Very refreshing. Highly drinkable, and surprisingly tasty for the style. I'll come back to this one as it starts to heat up.

Bottle into pint glass.

Pours a dull straw-gold, very little head - maybe a bit of white head shows through with an aggressive pour, but it doesn't last much longer than a second or two. Adjusted slightly upward because, at 20%, appearance is worth way too much.

Nose is light but clear - a bit fruity, some cereal grain, just a bit of floral hops.

Taste is... well, tasty. Subtle, dry, and floral up front, fantastically crisp and integrated flavor just begs for another sip. Hops are there and lend so much to the flavor without ever leaping out at you the way one who mainly drinks American beers is used to - floral and a bit fruity, only a hint of grainy sweetness lies underneath, with a very subtle bitterness lingering briefly on the finish. Beautifully executed.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp, well-carbonated and dry. Flavorful and perfectly balanced, every sip simply begs for another - near perfect drinkability. Very nice take on what is one of my favorite all-time styles.

To those who say it needs "more flavor" to truly be labeled a kolsch - I respectfully disagree. The aim is perfectly true on this one in my opinion.

Many, many thanks to kkipple for the bottle. Always stoked to try out a new Coast brew.

32°/50° pours a very light yellow/straw color. It's relatively clear, and looks even less colorful with backlighting. A soft, modest white head covers it. It stands about a finger tall, and falls to a surface covering quickly. Lacing was moderate. Much more than I expected in that department. Given the style...not bad at all.

The nose is alright. Generally speaking, I don't get much out of the nose in Kölsch style beers. This one isn't materially better. Initially, it strikes me as a little weak. There are some sweet, malty notes. It's definitely earthy and slightly grainy smelling. Honey is noted. The x factor here is hops. They're very much present and accounted for. They're floral in character and smell nice. I don't know that I've encountered that in this style before. Alcohol is not noticeable. No surprise there.

The flavor is pretty good. I'm not the biggest fan of the style, but this one's pretty damn good. A nice, semi-sweet, malty base is noted right off the bat. It's earthy and grainy. Honey is relatively strong in the mix and adds much to the overall flavor. I really like that addition. Light lemon also adds some depth. Hops steal the show in a sense. I'm not accustomed to a nice hop presence in this style. This one has it, and it's all the better for it. They're definitely floral, and complement the earthy notes so well. I'm impressed. Alcohol is buried. It finishes with a honey/hop combo.

32°/50° has a light body that goes down easy. Carbonation is light and restrained. Its body is too light to really feel smooth, but I don't think that's uncharacteristic of the style. Drinkability is good. This is one tasty Kölsch, and it'd go down all too well on a hot day. A bomber is no problem at all.

Coast Brewing Company brews good beer. I'm not the biggest fan of Kölsch, but this one's impressive. It really succeeds because of the honey/hop presence. They add a lot to the overall flavor and character of the beer. I'm still not the biggest fan of the style, but this one is certainly impressive. Definitely worth seeking out, especially if you're into Kölsch.

A - A light gold body with slight haze, topped by a one finger head of bone white foam. The head settles quickly and leaves moderate lace.

S - A light grainy aroma of malt with some herbal hops and perhaps a hint of sulphur.

T - Very light, dry malt up front with a toasted bread note. Some herbal hops in the middle with just a hint of malt. Finishes with very light bitterness and minor, earthy hop notes as well as a lingering note of very weak malt sweetness.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a very dry finish.

D - This is an extremely light beer that doesn't quite deliver the wheat and honey notes promised on the label. There is some nice herbal hop character hinted at in the aroma, but it fails to follow through in the flavor. There is a good balance between the very light malt and the fleeting hop flavor and bitterness, but both could stand to be turned up a bit. This isn't a bad beer, but I think they have erred on the light side of the Kolsch style. This is more of a blonde or cream ale, it would need a bit more malt and hop presence to make it a Kolsch.

I had this on draft a while back, but finally getting around to reviewing based on the growler picked up at CBX last weekend. Pours a bright, straw gold with a snowy white, one finger head; lots of carbonation going on. Smell is dominated by clean, bready malts. Taste is of light malted grains / bread crust with a touch of grassy hops... finishes with a nice bit of sweetness followed by a well balanced bite. Also, a little fruity / estery-ness in there. Mouthfeel was pushing medium-bodied and surprisingly creamy - I was really surprised by the mouthfeel. Drinkability... YES! Awesome stuff! So refreshing!

22oz bomber courtesy of a trade with brentk56, bottled on 1/17/10.

32/50 pours into my Andechs weizen glass with a gorgeous, white-grape juice color that transitions to a glassy paleness. Absolute torrents of carbonation stream upward through the clear liquid to fuel a healthy, creamy tuft of eggshell white head. Great lacing to boot...just an all-around beautiful Kölsch. Slightly muted aroma, but the soft, grassy hoppiness is done well. Bleached cracker malts, white wine, and a crisp mineral profile round out the nose.

Two words: crazy delicious. 32/50 hits the tongue with a crisp, herbal grassiness that adds just the right amount of hops to balance the white cracker malt notes. Clean, grassy finish with a well-crafted bitterness and a trace of mineral water and white wine spritzers. Mouthfeel is exceptionally light on the palate, with a brisk, bubbling carbonation level. All in all, a pleasure to consume. Highly recommended and perhaps the best American-brewed version of the Kölsch style.

Thanks to Mike for sending me this one. Had it on 4.5, from notes. Bottled in Nov 09.

Pours, wow... REALLY light. I mean, this almost looks watered down. It's the palest of straw colors with a stark white head that fades fairly quick to a thin cap.

Everything about this beer is very subtle and nuanced... crackery malts are here and lightly toasted grains in the aroma. The taste is also very subtle... it's almost just like this could be a BMC beer.... without the off-flavors. All jokes aside, this is a great, clean beer. Malt subtleties and a low-medium body create a refreshing and crisp brew. Very clean finish. The label noted "flowery hops", and I think that just a hint of that would help raise this brew to the next level, hopefully I can revisit another bottle and that character will be more evident when fresher.

Somehow this is so simple, without any 'big' flavors, but doesn't get too boring. Extremely drinkable and one that I would like to have again, especially on a hot day this summer.

Poured from 22oz bottle. Many thanks go out to mikesgroove for this bottle.

A- Pours a clear yellow color. Two finger white head comes up fast and lasts for a little bit. Nice ringing lacing left on the glass.

S- Clean smelling malts in the front end of this beer. Unlike other kolsch styles I have had seemed to be much muted than this beer. There is some light cracker like aroma as well. A light earthy hops comes into play around the ending of the aroma as a whole. Nothing really else going on...smells like a kolsch on steriods.

T- Tastes like what a normal kolsch would be like. Light buttery biscuty flavors right in the front end of this beer. Also, the bitter hops come into play right about the middle and stay throughout the rest of the beer. The beer has more hops in it than I have hade with other kolsch styles. Not bad at all actually quite good..maybe the most flavor I have had in one before.

M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style but high for my personal taste. Very drying in the mouth. Clean tasting flavors throughout the entire beer. Light buttery biscut malts in the front end with light bitter hops in the aftertaste.

D- This was a very drinkable beer that I enjoyed very much. Opened up my eyes to what a very well crafted beer in the style could be. COAST hits it dead on and I personally would love to get some more bottles of it.

22 oz bottle into a stange.

Pours a fairly clear gold, with just the slightest bit of an unfiltered haze to it, and several dense fingers of of shiny bright-white foamy head. This retains with a rich 3/4 cap that leaves thick frothy swathes of lace back. The aroma is light and airy in the nose, with floral spice, lemon zest, and sweet toasty wheat character giving this a pleasant zesty pop.

The taste is quite lively in the mouth, with a lightly prickly and drying hop character that is backed by a splash of fruit and grainy toasted sweetness across the tongue. Dryness and leftover fruitiness spreads out in the mouth, giving this a refreshing finish. The mouthfeel is lighter bodied but still crisp on the palate, with an easy smoothness that helps keep this very drinkable.

This was just an all around solid take on the Kölsch-style and another great offering from COAST, with an easy drinking crispness and a good amount of flavor presence for a sub 5% beer. This would go down perfectly on a warm spring or summer day.

Beer bottled on 11/12/09 according to label. Beer is light yellow (really light) and clear. Carbonation is moderate to high with small and medium bubbles, very steady. Head forms quickly but disappears leaving a diffuse layer of thin white bubbles on the top of the beer. No lacing, looks good.

Aroma is slightly sweet and some grain in the nose. Smells like a kolsch, just OK.

Beer is medium body and finishes without an aftertaste at all. Feels great, nice carbonation in the mouth interesting kolsch. Second taste, almost fruity that time, again really drinkable, some almost apple flavors up front gives way to really mild bitterness on the back end. I am warming up to these Kolsches. I like this beer a lot. I would order it and have it again.

So glad to grab a bottle of this in the Midlands. Pale straw golden pour has a fizzy white head that billows up and sticks around. Lots of carbonation, like a pilsner and an aroma of light grains, various melons and fruit salad. Taste is smooth and fresh with a nice kick. Lots of green grapes in the taste before a mild fruity sweetness takes over. Some buttery caramel also present, but there are enough hops present to give this brew a great body and taste. Finishes sweet and crisp. Perfect spring or summer beer here. My new favorite Kolsch.

Thanks go out to Mikesgroove for sending me this beer. It is my first brew from Coast and I'm looking forward to it.

32/50 has a body that is a bright, clear yellow. There are a ton of fast moving carbonation bubbles that fly to the surface to join a head that is easily two and a half fingers. The head is thick and foamy, it has great retention and it leaves thick, sticky sheet and rings of lacing on my glass.

The aroma is big on the clean, malty side with light sweetness and a clean cracker aroma. A slight bit of earthy hops in the back and a decent amount of fruits with pear being the most noticeable.

Up front, 32/50 has a malt base that features flavors of biscuit, a hint of butter and a noticeable wheat flavor/twang. Some dry, flowery hops are in the middle, adding just a hint of bitterness. Just a hint of light fruits like pear and green apple are in the background. A good amount of slightly sweet honey pops up in the finish and lingers even after the beer is gone.

The body is light, well-carbonated, and very dry in the finish.

I cannot tell by the bottled on date whether this beer was bottled on 1/14/09 or 11/4/09. I would guess that the date is in November based on the taste, but it is possible that I'm wrong. For a beer with such low ABV, 32/50 packs a lot of flavor, and it is truly something I could drink quite a few of on a summer day. Right on for the style.

Thanks to Bobby for sharing this one.

A: The pour is a hazy pale golden color with a thin layer of white head on top.

S: The nose is very buttery, which I was not expecting, nor did I find pleasing. There is a touch of light malt with a mild yeast aroma.

T: The diacetyl is present, but not to the extent that it exists in the nose. There is a slight malty sweetness, and a moderate bitterness which provides a welcomed bit of balance.

M: Somewhat light in body, but it works with the rather light feeling of the beer overall. The carbonation is moderate.

D: This kind of "tastes like beer"--in the sense most non-beer drinkers would describe. Nothing really all that good about this beer, unfortunately.

CBX growler poured into a 20oz COAST glass. The good folks @ COAST recently decided to send this brew out unfiltered, figured it was a good time to review since I thoroughly enjoyed a pint recently

Pours that light golden straw colors, just right for the style, with a foamny white head. Instant lacing, whcih I like, head fell pretty quick since it's not too dense. Though it's unfiltered, there's no unplesant haze here.

Nice bold smell, nothing overwhelming at all but it's just...bold. Almost hints of cheese in there somehow?

Taste is instantly refreshing. The unfiltered version brings out all the notes just a little more, for fuller flavor all around. It's a balanced, easy drinking delight.

Mouthfeel is indicative of a Kolsch, again very easy drinking.

Can I say it enough? Easy drinking.

Keep it up COAST.

22 oz. Bright gold pour, 1 finger of white foam. Actually sticks to the glass a bit.
Taste is malty, surprisingly so. Like a white wheat bread, very nice. Just hint of citrus, herbal grasses. Feels like a "meal", but is pretty light at the same time somehow. Very nice level of carbonation. Goes down great, but not like water per se.
I don't drink too many of the lighter styles such as this, but for a light session ale this would be great. Blows away the macros that could be considered "similar".

Really not a style I like, but hey, this was pretty good!

Pours a very, very pale golden color. Kind of scared me with the color, but it turned out pretty good. Huge white foam head.

Smells faintly of grass and ... something sweet ... and a biscuit-y, almost pilsener mineraliness. Interesting.

Taste is mostly sweet malt, some balancing yeast and minerals, and a bit of grassiness. Really quite pleasant and quaffable. Thin, but appropriately carbonated for the style.

Really quite enjoyable.
