2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Musty lemon and grass aroma. Hazy yellow with a small white head. Sour corn malt flavor with a slight grassy bitter finish. Light body and carbonation. I suppose it would do in a pinch on a hot day, but I wouldn’t seek it out.

Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. Very light malts and hops. Nothing at all worth trying. I hate Lexington too.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse (Habersham St) - 12 oz bottle. Pours a lifeless light golden, not head, no bubbles. Aroma has some hints of lemon, a bit of mown grass. Flavor have a hint of lemon, some yeasty notes, a buttery back end. Mouthfeel is slightly thin and a bit stinging. Not the best Kölsch I have ever had.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance is a very slightly hazy pale yellow with a tiny head that is quick to disappear.
Smell is a little corn and a lot of bready grain with some grassy hops thrown in there as well.
Flavor is much like the smell. Bready grain along with a little bit of cooked vegetables. Light hay and grass along with a slight bitterness towards the finish. Finishes pretty crisp.
I’m don’t think this is a really great example of a kolsch but tastes more like a dirty pilsener. Flavors aren’t all that great but it is an excellent thirst quencher.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I’m no style expert, but this seems like a prime example of "let’s just call it a Kolsch because it’s our lightest beer". Smells of corn, corn and corn. Flavor is corn and grassy. No thank you.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a bottle and it does smell alittle like those pale lagers from the old country; a little veggie on the pop. Looks like a slightly hazy pale lager. Quite easy on the taste buds with lots of co2 zest. Goes down fairly easy and its better than those other kentucky beers I’ve had. Yes refreshing and easy, quite likable to this lager lover. Not bad, a friendly beer drinken experience. Very little detectable alky and I guess this is due to the 4% alky level. Nice finish, overall good beer drinken experience.
