i just brewed a kolsch, and am currently drinking the first one right now.

my question is what commercial style beer is the closest to a kolsch? i know i have drank something similar to this before but can not put my finger on it.

there is a local brewer to me that makes Kolsch and man is it good. Very light, great hot weather beer. Maybe you can find what you need here though:

Stop by your International beer store pick up and try Gaffel Kolsch. Kolsch is a beer style of Cologne Germany. The name Kolsch is protected by law. That's why you won't find a production beer called a Kolsch outside of Germany. This was done because the term Pilsner was raped for all its worth, especially in North America and thru out the world with any type of island swill being called a Pilsner today.
