2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear yellow; white head. Pretty much standard yellow lager, but without a lot of the macro yuckiness.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours yellow with a thick sticky white head. Aroma is somewhat vegetal. Notes of grainy mail, grassy hops, and a slight tart berry overtone emerge throughout the swallow. A simple quenching summer beer that doesn’t quite hit the mark as a Kolsch.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a light gold with a 3 inch white head that slowly fades. Lots of carbonation. Taste is of malt, grain, rye and some grass. Similar clean aroma. Has a decent, clean body. Easy to drink, refreshing and just different enough to make it interesting.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It poured a yellow/gold color with a white head. The aroma was of hops and grain. It was light on the body, but still creamy on the palate. The taste was of bread and yeast with very little hops bitterness. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2013 Nice koslch style aroma. Clear golden color. Not the best koslch ive ever had but not bad either. Drinks almost like a white wine, sweet and smooth. Not a bad spring/summer beer. Would prefer a little more grassy/earthy notes to add a little dry balance at the end.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours a dark golden color with a smallish white head. Nose is actually very much like so many cheap lagers. Taste is slightly sweet, but also like so many pale lagers. Kinda surprised at the lowish quality.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Oh hey, what’s this? I love Kolsch-style beers, so somehow I’m ignoring that voice in the back of my head asking me "Have you ever actually had a good Leinenkugel beer?" "Big Eddy wasn’t that bad." "Whatever, it’s your tongue." Bottled purchased. Haven’t really had much to eat all day, so decided on a nice light beer before dinner. Pour is lively an slightly overcarbonated... looks refreshing enough... glass approaches nose... sweet, creamy shitty Bud Light? Check. Tastes even slightly worse? Check? Would I much prefer a Coors Light? Check. I fart in your general direction, Mr. Leinenkugel.
