Share This Review

Kapitan’s Kolsch is a German-style Kölsch brewed by Biscayne Bay Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a pilsener glass from a bottle.


The Kölsch pours a crystal-clear straw color capped by a finger-thick head of white foam that persists briefly. Lace and residue are absent but ample effervescence is visible in the glass.


The aroma is slight but pleasant, yielding a balance of spicy hops and grain.

The palate consists of a lovely blend of pale malt and spicy hops. A subtle sweetness of fruity esters appears midway in the background. And a sweet flavor honey appears at the finish.


The feel meets expectations for the style. It’s light and crisp with a medium-light body and moderate carbonation.


Kapitan’s Kolsch is a straightforward representation of the style but is crafted well. Its aroma is slight but that’s not unexpected. Appearance and feel are spot on. Its flavor is well balanced, as expected for the style. And it also tastes quite lovely. While this Kölsch isn’t eye-opening, it is thoroughly enjoyable. If you’re looking for a light, balanced session crusher, the Kapitan’s Kolsch is a nice option.
