The Kentucky Kolsch comes from the Kentucky Ale brand and puts an interesting twist on a malt beverage. The beer first struck me as having a chocolatey taste with only a hint of lemon. I drank this without a garnish and found it very filling. The beer does not always go well with any types of food but does taste well on it's own.

At 4.72% ABV the beer won't really get you going with three but it is a surprisingly pleasant beverage to have during the evening while relaxing.

The look of the beer has a cool label and fits in well with the Kentucky Ale brand. The smell is not too strong and reflects the taste of the beer. The beer is thicker in feeling but doesn't feel as strong as a dark stout since it is a pale yellow.

Pours a very pale yellow. Mildly fruity aroma. The taste is sour fruit with faint citrus notes. Sour malt aftertaste. Overall a little disappointing.

look: 1.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Poor retention and poor lacing. Smells of pale malt, hint of sweet malt, hint of hops, and slight adjunct. Does not seem to fit the style of a Kolsch, but rather a Light Lager or an American Pale Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, hint of sweet malt, hint of hops, and slight adjunct. Overall, weak appearance, aroma, body, and blend.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a very pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, malts, grains. Taste is the same, grains and malts, some crispness, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a refreshing beer, but lacking any real punch.

This pours a pale, light yellow color with a slight white head. The aroma is light with grains. The taste is smooth, light, and full of grain. This is a much better tasting that the rating would suggest. Well made for the style.
