This looks to be a good grilling beer in the early fall. Pours a clearstraw yellow into the Bitburger pilsner glass, plenty of white head for everyone. And good lace too, almost get a ring per sip.

Sharp aroma of grassy hay, and even a pop of euro skunk. Crisp and clean taste of sunshine in the grass, and enough spicy hop in the finish to balance it out well.

Seems like a fresh bottle, which could be a problem with the import delays. Not to bad of a price - $2.50 for the 500ml. Tasty enough brew to try again.

a: perfect for style; light straw, brilliant clarity with a finger+ of snow white head that left no lace.

s: skunky; definite flaw. Under that the promise of Kolsch wonderment.

t: OK. Pretty well balanced and hint of the malty sweetness the style is known for. A trifle thin and a tad over-hopped? Here the flaws of this beer were totally exposed when tasting back to back against homebrews. Skunky and bitter--maybe a tad sour--when pitted against homebrewed exemplars.

m: As a lawnmower high 40's low 50's kind of beer not much to say.

0: I disagree that this is a very good beer. If you have never experienced the magic of Kolsch this is definitely a must try. If you know Kolsch it's pretty lame as Kolsch is fragile and best drunk young before even minor amts of oxidation turn it into just another quickly forgotten thirst quencher.

I can't believe I just picked up a bottle of this for $1.00 at the Breeze In, Valley location. Anyways, here goes.

Into a stange.

A: clear golden yellow color and leaves the same color body with a one and a half fingered white foamy head that leaves some lightly clingy lacing, light carbonation is seen rising at a nice pace

S: light grassy kinda herbal malty and corn combine sweetly

T: sweet, crisp , and light; there isn't any aftertaste or finish

M: light on the body, very sessionable, carbonation just right for a Kolsch

O: wow for a dollar, heck yeah, I'd have this again in a heartbeat and with its respected food, preferably in the summer as the nice refreshing aspect is absolutely awesome

Bottle poured into glass

Pours a clear, golden yellow with a steady stream of carbonation that creates a a billowy, white two finger foam cap. Settles to a white layer with very nice lacings.

Aromas of grassy, herbal and sweet malt.

Crisp , light , active carbonation. Grassy hops, a hint of sweetness from the malts.

Nice light refreshing beer. Ideally suited for a hot. Sweltering summer day.

I love this style and drink Sunner everytime I see it on a menu. American breweries haven't nailed a good kolsch yet.

This is a light yellow beer with a white head and medium carbonation. Aroma is sweet grain and noble hops (grassy, herbal). Flavors are sweet grain upfront and some noble hop flavors. I also get some subtle apple or pear-like fruitiness from the yeast. Mouthfeel is crisp with a dry finish..

Poured into a kolsch stange from a small keg. Pours light straw amber with a healthy two finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt with slight wheat and citrus. Flavor is also dominated by biscuit malt, with faint apple juice, lightly tart. Finishes crackery with light grassy hops. Light to medium bodied. An unusual opportunity to try a relatively fresh kegged kolsch. The style is not intensely flavored so this fresh version was not noticeably an improvement on the bottled versions, but it was interesting to be able to drink it fresh from the tap. I nice, classic kolsch that was a pleasure to drink.
