No head, balanced translucent color
Smell is similar to a Vienna lager, but with slightly more hops
Taste is smooth yet complex, mainly of malt characters and some hops and a grapey taste
Overall very easy to drink yet has interesting flavor, would recommend

Cool bottle I picked up at my local bottle shop. I always love to see new Kölsch-styles around this area. 12oz bottle poured into a stange.

Pours a pale gold with a big foamy white head on top. Retained well. Some lace left behind. The nose is fresh with lemon, and other zest, and the common-to-this-style aroma of cut-grass. Nice mouth. Carbonation is spot-on. Not too sprtizy. Faint lemon flavors, cracker, bread, mild hops, and a crisp, dry finish. This is a fantastic beer. I'm gonna go grab a sixer of this this weekend if it's still around.

Beautiful, light gold with plenty of lace and good head retention.
Pear and tart apple esters are plentiful along with bready dough like malt flavors.
Have been drinking a lot of German Kolsches lately, but this Utah one can hold it's head high.
Mouthfeel is medium and this leans toward an ale for a hybrid, but with higher than average carbonation. Very tasty and fairly crisp though...a great Summer beer.

Hey! You do the hoo doo! Doing this do.. Right now. Time to Krush a Kolsch, hoping for a decent one here, so off we go. Bottled Jan 12, 2012 we are off!

Fluffy and styrofoamy white head, fairly large when poured into my Gaffel Kolsch stange glass. Dark twenty four carat gold, lots of large cola bubbles though. Looks alright, we got some good staying power on this head.

Nose is grainy malt, a little spicy and dry. Faint arid white bread. Gets better after some rest interestingly enough. Pulling out some white bread punch.

Taste is a nice almost German Pilsner thick body feeling sensation, but with a bit of simple malt chewy character, and a muted crispness. Finish brings the dry bread air like crazy, fantastic finish on this beer, of baked fresh white flour. Nicely soft with a little carbonation, nothing crazy though.

Overall just real solid, very enjoyable. Now that I see it's 4% I am getting another!

Attractive golden in the glass with quite adequate foam and lacing. Sprightly in the mouth. Has a nice perfumey hop flavor with the right Kölsch crispness. A kiss of malt sweetness on the lips with a welcome touch of bitterness. Tastes "beery" in a good way. Clean and well made, and a nice choice among the Utah supermarket beers.

A great light beer. Such an improvement over the standard lagers. Harmon's Markets in Salt Lake have single 12 oz bottles available of a bunch of the Uinta and other local low-octane beers.

6-pack from Total Wine, Charlotte (Park Road).

A: Cool label art on the 12oz “compass” bottle; pours a light, brassy gold and crystal clear; one finger of fluffy white foam forms on the pour.

S: Hay; grainy; pretty simple and straightforward... as it should be for a Kolsch.

T: Light bready-huskiness; earthy; sweet finish with a dab of hops.

M: Medium-bodied (fuller than it looks); higher carbonation; nice.

O: A nice Kolsch; good backyard / cookout / summertime brew for sure... I’ll definitely have it again!

A - yellow clear with 1/2 finger head. Decent retention with lots of carbonation

S - lots and lots of sweet malt scents

T - very well crafted and balanced. Lots of malt and slight crispness in finish. Very sessionable.

M - very full bodied and creamy for this usually watery style

O = one of the better crafted Kolsch style beers I've had. Extremely sessionable, flavorful and great for summer drinking.
