Didn't enjoy this one much. Not a whole lot going on for my liking. Just a very average beer, not much flavor.

Light and slightly crisp. Session beer. Thin. Not a lot of flavor. Had in a flight at the brewery

I tried this Canadeo Gold as part of a flight of 9 beers offered at the Titletown Brewery in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The beer is named after Packer Hall-of-Famer Tony Canadeo.

The beer pours a clear pale gold color as its name would suggest, but it only made a half finger of white head and left virtually no lacing on the glass.

The aroma was nice but on the weak side - just a light malt and grassy smell.

The lightness carried over into the taste as well. Light malt and a touch of honey provide the sweetness and a hint of hops provide some balance. Kolsh's aren't heavy beers, but this one was just too light for me.

Clean, smooth, and light mouthfeel, and here we go again, light carbonation. Everything about this beer screams light. The light 4.5% abv makes it an easy drinker, and while not a bad tasting beer, I wouldn't seek it out again either.

Not a bad stab at the Kolsch style. Light golden body with a thick white head that quickly diminishes to skim. Mild carbonation. Sweet aroma of light malts, grass, and honey. Flavor is a bit too sweet and candy like for my tastes but it still makes for a good drinker as the body is exceptionally creamy and smooth. If this beer was less sweet or if that sweetness was balanced somehow, this would be a fine brew.

This beer was reviewed as part of a sampler platter. The pour is of a clear gold color topped with a small white head and little carbonation. All acceptable for this style. Aroma is mainly sweet malt with a hint of grass, still pretty clean and mild. Light malt flavor comes and quenches. The body is nice, medium , not cloying and the finish is the same light malt. This sets you up for another.

This beer poured a clear and golden color. There was a lightly honeyed aroma to it. Each sip finished crisp and clean with just a touch of hop bittering. An easy-going brew, and so easy to drink. It’s not the best expression of the style I’ve tried, however, as it lacks that certain something.

Transcribed from my notebook.

Appears a shade more golden in color than a pilsener would appear, but that is OK because this is a Kolsch. 2 fingers of fragile foam that fell apart really fast but left behind tons and tons of lacing both on the glass *and* on my face for a brief moment of foamy fun and rabies jokes. :)
Aroma is of light honeyed pears, apples, some kind of graham / pale malt mix, and even fainter whiffs of phenolic spice spectrum. The central nit-pick I have with this one is that the flavor has been pushed about 10% too far off balance into sweetness for a Kolsch IMHO... all the aroma profiles from the nose seem to be just about that much stronger than they smelled when experienced in the sip! The texture is pleasantly light, crisp, and snappily carbonated. Easily sessionable, just as all good Kolsches are.

In summary, I do recommend at least giving this one a fair try, as it does well enough in all other aspects that I am willing to be lenient about it having a very minor sweetness balance issue.

Reviewed as part of the sampler. First beer sampled. Very good example of a kolsch beer. Light, clean, and crisp, with just the right amount of hop balance. Clear golden yellow, completely transparent. Touch of white foam. Very drinkable, could easily take home a growler fora summer day.

Arrived at my table in a pint glass. Served chilled...

A) Straw yellow with nice clarity. A little over a finger of soapy head, which had good retention. A little spotty lacing.

S) Pale malt, soda cracker, light grass, green grape and canned pear.

T) The taste has good balance and enough hops presence to keep it interesting. The malt is not overly sweet. There is some really nice grass to this with light fruit.

M) Light body with moderate carbonation. Super easy drinking, thanks to the combination of smoothness, crispness, and really some very refreshing qualities. The finish and aftertaste are slightly grassy.

O) I've said before, and I'll say it again... Titletown Brewery has some really tasty brews. This is a nice session option in my opinion. If you're in Green Bay, do yourself a favor and stop by Titletown. Glad to recommend this beer.

a perfect gold beer.

Don't know what to start with at Titletown, go here.

Want to taste what Green Bay is all about, order this.

need to feel part of the tradition, this is your go to beer.

Have a friend who is scared off by craft beers, order this.

Is it hot and humid in Green Bay and you want something quick and refreshing, order this.

Especially good with their beer cheese soup and barley bread.

I only wish that like their great root beer it came in a bottomless glass!
