Notes/Commercial Description:
Our German-style Kolsch pays homage to the traditional beer of Cologne. It pours a pale straw color, delivering floral hop notes and a smooth malt character developed from extended cold aging.

A: The beer is clear straw yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head.
S: Light aromas of bready and grainy malts are present in the nose. As the beer warms up, hints of fruit also become perceptible.
T: The taste has flavors of green grapes and pears intermixed with strong notes of grainy malts. There is a slight amount of bitterness and dryness towards the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and could make for a good choice if you are looking for something sessionable during the summer months.

Very Smooth, excellent head with very light hops and no bitterness. Great find. Thanks to the folks at the Strange Brew Tavern in Allentown, PA.

Got this on a whim because it was on sale. A lot more complex than the light summer beer I expected, with heavier feel, darker coloration, and some pleasingly bitter notes.

Nice golden slightly hazy look with a thumbnail head that dissipates quickly.
Not much of an aroma at first, however, I note hints of lemon and honey towards the end of the drink.
Tastes of lemon and a finish that has a bitter hop flavoring.
Light bodied feel but almost viscous.
Overall a solid, crisp and refreshing kolsch, but not as good as the ones I had in Cologne Germany.
