Notes: Modeled after the bright, beautiful ales of Koln, our interpretation has a clean, crisp malt character similar to a Pilsner. The authentic Kolsch yeast strain pairs perfectly with our unique blend of aromatic Noble hops from Germany.

Completely inoffensive, and actually slightly interesting. This rating isn't really to style, I guess, because I don't know if I can imagine anything this beer could do to be better.

Clean, true and what is expected of a Kolsch. Balanced and session able. I don't typically drink this style and have been handed many different things across the "blonde" lable. It is nice to order a Blonde and get this. "goes down easy, just how I like my Blondes"

If you are a fan of traditional Kolsch style beers, this is an amazing representation of the style. An amazing beer for these beautiful San Diego Summer Days!! Smell, taste and overall apperance of the beer was spot on!! Way to go Saint Archer!! Can't wait to try your other styles!!!
