Served poolside at the Marriott Marquis (Houston, TX) in a 20 oz can. Pale malt body with lightly sweet, grainy notes, whispers of fruity yeast, and grassy, bitter hops. Light bodied, carbonated and refreshing. Easy enough to drink by 20 oz can, great for the pool and lazy river.

Karbach's Love Street has an extremely thick, slightly off-white head, a hazy, yellow appearance, with fierce bubble streams, not so small yeast chunks, and a good amount of spiderweb glass lacing. Aroma is of pale malts, with a ghost of lemon and grass. A touch of bitterness at the end of the sips, too. Taste is pale malt, with a sour & yeasty undertaste. Mouthfeel is medium and semi-fluffy, and Love Street finishes mostly crisp.

This beer didn't really have the Kolsch flavor going on. Felt and tasted more like a weak Blonde Ale. It's not a bad beer but not really holding up to what it's supposed to be

Beer pours a clear golden color with a white head. The smell is tomato, straw and sweet malts. The flavor is slightly sweet but plain. It's a smooth easy drinking beer good for a session but nothing to write home about. Overall slightly above average.

Eh. Nothing much to see here. If they were going for drinkable, then they scored. If refreshing with an interesting bent, then Karbach played this one a bit too conservative.

A kolsch in grassy name only.

This brew has subtle notes of grassy, floral malt with a pleasant sour aftertaste . Very mild carbination, but with a substantial white head that lingers. The flavors that are present are tasty, but it's a bit too thin overall. A very drinkable beer, just much understated.

Pours out to a nice permanent white head and golden clear. Aroma is clean and grainy but hardly resembling the fruity, vinous note of Kolsch. Flavor is a mix of Michelob original and a splash of witbier. Feels awesome. Decent quencher. Misses the style mark. But then again, I'm at Pappadeaux at IAH and the air in here is reeking of seafood gumbo. Don't give up on Karbach. Try for yourself.
