2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - Pours clear golden with a thick foamy white head. Nose is sour graininess with a metallic tinge. A little bit of rye spiciness and very little noticeable hopping. Taste is the same sour grain, more pronounced rye spice, and some corn notes. Finishes with more mouth-filling grain. Not really getting the "clean finish" part of the description--it’s full and malty. Lots of carbonation on this one too. Overall just doesn’t taste all that good. I prefer my kolsches cleaner with that light white grape character--there’s none of that here.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pale gold/straw pour with a thick white pillowy head.
aroma is biscuity malt, light grains and lemony hop.
Flavour is basically kolsch like, though the addition of rye gives it a grainy sourness. light grassy/lemony hop in the finish. Actually will probably be pretty refreshing through the spring/summer. Very clean, if somewhat understated brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice deep gold with decent white head that looked like a good brew. Flavor is pretty much Kolsch compared to others of the same style I have had. Slight hint of pepperish flavors from the rye in there. Good but nothing outstanding about it to seperate it from other Kolsch beers. Would have been more interesting if there was more of the rye in it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaked maize aroma. Leinie’s needs to leverage the cool art deco Indian chick in their label, and cut the overblown graphics. Clear, pale, white head. Sweetish, bland, sugar pops cereal (corn) flavored, modestly bittered. Medium light body, green bitter aftertaste. Lawnmower beer. Thanks to PorterPounder for the low-brow trade.

Tallahassee, Fl - World Market - 12 oz bottle. Medium golden sparkling pour with nice bubble action and a decently thick snow white head and nice lacing. Aroma is grainy and a touch yeast. Flavor has some buttery accents, a touch of saffron-like spice, some brief minty rye notes. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Not bad.

Tap at Old Chicago Eden Prairie. Pale clear light gold pour with minimal white head. Pretty boring beer, even for the style. Bleh.
