Tried to give this one a chance and maybe a kolsch like this isn't for everyone, but I couldn't drink more than one.

Super light and carbonated. For taste, you have citrusy notes like lemongrass, floral-y and very slight honey.

I have heard good things about this kolsch. I didn't find anything about it that was stand out. Hopefully I can have this on draft sometime to give it a better examination.

Light, refreshing, easy drinking. Palest yellow with a half inch head, lots of bubbly carbonation rising. Smells of malt, faint hops. Floral, grassy taste, light feel, overall delightful.

12 oz. Bottle

Pours a nice yellow color, nice carbonation, with a pretty nice small off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, yeasty, grass/wheaty. The taste is malty, yeasty, grassy/wheaty. Medium body. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

They served this at the World Beer Cup awards dinner at the end of CBC in Philly a few weeks back. I loved the aroma and taste - great representation of this style. Easy drinking. Looking to see if I can get a case on the east coast - Philly area.

Canned version:

Look: 2.75 Very light, watery yellow; very few bubbles. Moderate white foam head which quickly dissipates.

Smell: 3 Rather faint scent of hops, typical Kolsch.

Feel: 3 Mild acidic bite subsides quickly; Feeling of light suds on tongue.

Taste: 3.75 Taste of light hops with increasingly bitter aftertaste. Refreshing and smooth.

12 oz can pours an uber light yellow color with a fizzy cap of white head. Poor retention and little lace.

Nose is light and grainy, very faint....not much going on here, nothing offensive either though.

A little more on the flavor with a light floral hop and decent little zest from the kolsch yeast. Clean and fresh, it goes down easy as intended. The yeast doesnt have as much influence as most in this style, but you go do worse for a 12-pack chillin outdoors.

Look: Clear, pale straw. two fingers of bright fluffy white head dissipates slowly. No lacing.

Smell: Light tinny hoppyness that exemplifies so many great German beers. A little wheat, a little bready malt

Taste: Bready malt up front, light tinny bitter finish. A little lemon zest in there. Crisp and refreshing.

Feel: Really light body. Medium Dry finish. Pretty watery

Overall: Not really indicative of the style. It drinks more like a watered down Pilsner. Meh. It is a crushable sixer that would be pretty good for yard work but there are much better options.

Clear straw yellow color with a fluffy white head, decent retention and lacing. Biscuity/cracker aroma, very little else. Taste is grainy, light malty, just a slight hop bitterness present. Mouthfeel was pretty light, but fairly normal for the style. Overall, this one really didn't appeal to me, probably wouldn't buy again.
