Dundee Kölsch-Style Ale

Dundee Kölsch-Style Ale

User Rating:

A good Kölsch is grassy, crisp, smooth, and has a light wheat texture.  This beer has all those descriptions, but lacks a little quality.  You see, not every brewery can make a great Kölsch.  They may try, but only a few succeed (i.e., the breweries in the town of Köln, Germany).  Dundee has a pleasant sipping […] ...

Sünner Kölsch

User Rating:

A light refreshing brew that I chose to open during the autumn month this Sünner (pronounced “Zoo-nuh”) Kölsch hit the spot.

This authentic Kölsch breathed a mixture […] ... [Read more]

Goose Island Summertime Kölsch

User Rating:

With a name like that, it just begs to be picked from the liquor store shelf […] ... [Read more]

Neither is any Kölsch you’ve ever had…unless it was brewed in Colgne (Köln), Germany (following certain brewing instructions, of course). Yet clearly, German regulations about only brewing a certain style of beer in a certain city aren’t about to […] ... [Read more]

Reissdorf Kölsch

User Rating:

What a day? Looking out my office window all I saw was snow…all day. Thankfully, the ground was warm and the snow was wet so it was quickly dispatched by city snow plows and traffic. Since I work in customer service my job is to make people’s lives easier and provide the best answers. Today […] ... [Read more]

Metropolitan Krankshaft Kölsch

User Rating:

So, it’s cold outside in the western burbs, and I’ve spent a good hour of my day walking in it. I come in from the freeze looking for something intriguing. I’ve got the apartment to myself for the moment. Time to kick back and listen to some tunes – random playlist starting with “Chubb Sub” […] ... [Read more]
