The Kolsch Ale was designed to replicate the classic German Kolsch style ale with its light crisp lemon taste and subtle peppery notes. The beer was designed to be refreshing so it has lots of carbonation and a very light flavor. Overall, this beer does a great job creating very drinkable and refreshing ale.
The beer pours a hazy, almost straw-yellow color, with lots of fizzy carbonation that come straight up from the middle of the glass. She has a solid white soapy head and a very weak aroma of German malts and yeast mixed with an almost sweet, grainy scent. At first you get a slightly bitter light carbonated taste, followed by a bit of spice, and a very dry finish.
To me this beer tastes a bit like dry champagne. It's a very sessionable beer and therefore is best enjoyed in large quantity while outdoors during a midsummer day. The best part about this beer is that its low calories and low carbs make it a beer that you do not have to feel guilty about.
