Pours a clean pale yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, sweet lagery malts. In the taste, a small sweetness in a fresh lager. A small bite and a lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry to nothing in the aftertaste. Really fresh, nothing exciting, but enjoyable nonetheless. (284 characters)

This is an enjoyable beer. I like kölschbier. This would get a higher rank from me if it were more true to a kölsch. It was a bit different. Not very crisp, bubbly, toasty as expected. More of a dense mellow malt beer. Also 6.2% vs. the typical sub-5 range of a kölsch. Good. (278 characters)

Pours a hazy dark straw color with half a finger of head. The nose is quite yeasty. The malt flavor is rather decent for the style. The classic Kolsch-style dry bitterness is there on the finish. (198 characters)

Pours a clear straw color with a white head and some lacing. The retention is ok, and the beer looks like it should for the most part. Clean, bready aroma and a bit of floral hops. In the taste, biscuit and cracker like malt notes and a refreshing herbal hop bitterness that has a bit of lemon citrus to it. Light bodied ale with adequate carbonation. Overall, it was a good beer for sure, complimented a cheese steak and fries appropriately. (442 characters)

Bottle. This beer is officially named "King Kolsch."

Pours a light clear straw gold with a quarter inch of sugar white head that dissipates quickly to a lacing.

Smells of light grassy malts, buttered bread and a bit of cane sugar.

Flavor is of grassy malts with light bready undertones and some crispness.

Medium body with a sharp stinging carbonation on the tongue.

A good flavorful otherwise light beer, great balance, very easy to drink and refreshing, highly sessionable. Would definitely throw a few of these back on more than one occasion. (552 characters)

The beer poured crystal clear and straw coloured from the bottle and had very little head but stayed as a ring throughout the drink. Lacing was minimal. Beautiful looking!

The aroma is definitely of sweet pale malts, some biscuity yeast and an almost imperceptible, unless you agitate the beer well, grassy hop nose.

There is a pretty good balance between the pale malt sweetness and the earthy hop bitterness which comes alive half-way through the sip. The finish is dry and slightly peppery. Some light biscuity yeast is present through the sip as well. Another reviewer mentioned cardboard, I'm not really getting that, but I may be confusing it with the earthy hops at the finish. I'm not overly familiar with this style it being maybe my 5th or 6th kolsch ever, but I think it's pretty dang good!

The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, a bit more than I have had, slightly slick on the tongue and dry. Carbonation in this beer is medium and quite nice.

Overall, I would have to say that this fits the descriptions of a kolsch that I have read and there is really nothing that offends me or seems like an off-flavour. I really like this beer and this style and recommend trying it to anyone. Especially if you can get it on tap in the summer! (1,252 characters)
