Style: Kölsch

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.60%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This bier is delicate and pale with less bitterness than a Pils and less sweetness than a Helles. A subtle fruitiness is the hallmark of this classic style from Köln. Along with Alt, this is one of the last ale holdouts in Germany. (ABV 4.6% 22 IBU'S)

S: rich, bready-doughy malt nose with subtle fruit and hop aromas. Light sweet aroma and a hint of pear. Fresh and balanced nose. The aromas are medium low.

L: pours light gold under a 1/2" white foam cap that rapidly dissipates.

T: smooth and creamy with light malt flavors balancing soft light fruit flavors. Hop flavors are medium low. Hop bitterness and flavor and fruit flavors come out more in the finish. Nicely balanced beer with a slight residual sweetness.

F: light and its carbonation slightly above average

This pours a clear pale gold with plenty of foam.

The smell is of bready malt and quite a bit of fruity notes.

Tastes of bread, grassy hops, and sometimes delicate, sometimes more assertive fruitiness.

Medium body and carbonation.

Excellent Koelsch!

Light, refreshing, perfect summertime beer. An easy pour yielded a nice marshmallow fluff head that soon retreated, leaving lots of bubbles. Golden straw color. Smells of pineapple hard candy, taste of grassy bitterness, a little citrus. Medium body and carbonation. Excellent.

PROST KOLSCH 5/7/16

Another in the latest shipment from the beer club. We do not get this Colorado brewer's products in my state.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Unibroue pilsener glass.

a: Slightly cloudy gold with an even quarter inch thick white head which receded to patchy surface foam and spotty lacing.

s: Light fruit.

t: follows the nose over a medium biscuit malt base. Dry finish.

m: Medium, good body and carbonation tingle.

o; An exceptional representation of the style, easy drinking and refreshing. This brewer knows his German formats; his Weissbier (recently reviewed) is also very good.

Pretty underwhelming
Better than Coors
But not by that much
