4.25/5 rDev +12.7%
Poured from a pint bottle into Kolsch glass, clear bright golden color, 2 finger head, light lacing decent retention tight bubbles, excellent carbonation
Aroma had a nice malty slightly grassy, with just a hint of some european hoppiness
Taste had a white grape fruitiness with some grains, very slight bitterness of hops in back
Crisp clean and refreshing mouthfeel that finishes with a slight hop at the end. Very pleasing.
Overall, this is an outstanding example of the true German version of this ale, and not a hint of skunkiness in my bottles. Proper importing is key to these types, and they can't sit forever. Buy them from a store that keeps them in the dark and you will be rewarded. Go out and look for this one.

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.
Look: Pure golden colored body. Foamy white head with decent retention. Light soapy lacing.
Aroma: Malt grains, slight grassiness, and a bit of a tangy note.
Taste: A clean grain beginning, a hint of lemongrass, tea tang finish.
Mouthfeel: Very crisp, clean.
Overall: Just a slight skunky note about this that keeps it from being fantastic. Very clean and refreshing though.

A: Golden copper clear filtered with lots of fine bubbled carbonation, a finger of yellowish white head that fades fast.
S: White grapes, white wine or grape juice, lightly toasted malts.
T: Deep rich lightly toasted malts and dough, light white grapes and grape juice. Light bitter hopping on the end.
M: Light body, lots of carbonation, dry finish.
O: Awesome standard for this style. The best kolsch I’ve ever had. Dry and smooth, nice vinous scents and doughy taste. Drank at Turkey Creek June 28, 2014 on my daughter’s second birthday.

Brilliant golden, lingering white, frothy head.
Floral, grainy, sweet.
Grainy, somewhat tart/metallic, banana, light cardboard oxidation , fairly bitter finish.
Body is a little full, with modest carbonation and light alcohol warmth.
Served too warm. Would like to taste fresh and cold.

06/17/14 Served in a pint glass but I wish it was smaller. Because, as a Kolsch, this needs to be consumed very, very cold. Very enjoyable & true to style. Why mess with success?
04/24/13 On tap. So nice I did it twice. Very pleasant. All things going for this one. Inviting is the wrd that comes to mind. I'm partial to klosch brews & this one hit the spot. If its warm & sunny, lay down your money for Sunner Klosch.

16.9 oz. bottle poured into craft beer glass (wide-mouthed stick)
L: yellow-gold water, so clear you think it's a mirror; nice 1-inch head of white foam that's sticking nicely at the top; keeps a light skin of foam and a thick collar considering very few bubbles are floating up in the column; lacing also some on the way down, not a ton
S: bread malt ... wow ... like bread dough and baking bread and every other kind of bread; fruitiness showing up as we go; butter
T: plenty of bread malt sweetness with also some very light fruitiness ... peach, apple -- just hints of those but there's some definite fruity sweetness to it, almost like an English pale ale; next to no hop presence of any kind, only the slightest of slight hint of earth or black pepper
F: soft ... feels under-carbonated and watery ... perfect for summer drinking but just a bit flat
O: yummy and very drinkable but nothing overly remarkable; a good kolsch, not necessarily great, mainly because it feels so soft/flat
