2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into a Willybecher glass. Clear golden colour with weak white foam. Weak malt, hops, and yeast aspects too. None of the distinct Kölsch traits: grainy, slight fruitiness, peppery noble hops. Not terrible, but sure seemed like a bland mass produced pale lager to me. It’s too bad: I like Leinenkugel’s and I love a good Kölsch, this is a real missed opportunity.

2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours a light golden color with a small white head of foam. Taste and aroma were identical. Not much going on. Grainy, yeasty, with some light citrus.

bottle. clear gold. small head. kind of lifeless. sweeten cereal pilsner malt aroma with some grassy hops. a bit tart, but i think its just a spicyness from the rye. its ok but the appearance isn’t very exciting.

Pale yellow with a white head. Pretty blah and bland beer. Stale hops, pale malts, crackery, biscuit notes.

Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweet with hints of malt. Flavor is quite sweet, almost juicy at times, with malty notes and citrus with no noticeable rye. Very light body with medium carbonation. Not great.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
1/4/14. 12oz bottle from Publix. Crystal clear golden copper pour, looks like apple juice in a way, under a small off-white head that fades to a small ring and doesn’t lace. Light, mildly fruity aroma, apples and pale malts, hints of caramel, straw, hay, etc. Plain flavor, malty, pale malts, doughiness, barely a hint of spice, straw, grassiness, hay, and a lingering touch of sweet corn. Meh.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Backlog) The look is golden in color, white head, and very clear. The smell is corn, malt, and boring lager like. The taste is malt, weàk, and basic.

P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, crisp finish.

Somewhat novice to buying bottled Kolsch style beers, so I can’t give a educated description. Had what was described as "Kosch" in France several years ago and not a fan of whatever it was. This one... I LIKE VERY MUCH.

Light grain yellow with white surface sheet. Smells like a kolsch, corn, grain, clean, touch of earthy hops. Clean, some corn, some rice, some grain, a touch of sweetness early on is countered with a decent bitterness and a cheap finish. Thin with hi carb and a dry finish. This is okay. I’d drink again.
