2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
MAY0613 marked on the bottle neck.
Appearance: Pours out a clear, light yellow body with a medium-small, tight, white head.
Smell: Minor malts with a bit of grain, a dash of corn sugar, and modest hop hints.
Taste: Ultra faint, ineffusive maltiness with a slight touch of rye and light cereal sweetness. Lacking hops, low bitterness. Light finish with a light, lingering hint of malt liquor gankiness.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: A weak offering, a rather poor Kölsch. Didn’t finish this one.

3.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Not a bad beer by any means, despite the reviews. I’ve not drank many kolsch style beers however I do think this is a tasty beer and enjoy the slight rye taste.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pretty yellow gold with a pure white smallish head. Nose is hops and grain. Light on the body, but still quite creamy on the palate, the taste is bread and yeast with very little hops bitterness. A very smooth and satisfying beer that pairs well with smoke turkey sandwiches.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I seemed to like this more than most. Perhaps I was in a generous mood? At any rate, It seemed that there were some grassy, corny notes, and some light sweetness. Nice dry finish, which I think can be attributed to the rye.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Corn malt and hay aroma. Pale yellow with large white head. Mildly sweet corn/barley malt and hay flavor. Light body - almost like a Koelsch but only if you dumped a Miller GD in it.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 Yellowish tint with little white head. Smells grassy. Tastes similar to Coors. Not my favorite from Leinenkugel. Awful crappy malty aftertaste that lingers. Awful beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow. Small white head. Smells buttery, grassy, corny. Tastes like a slightly sweeter version of a generic macro, but with a little better body. Clean finish. Refreshing at least.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear, pale yellow-gold pour with a thin ring of white head. Sweet corn and rice aroma with some boozy, fruity and grassy, plant notes. Tastes of more of the same, but a bit cleaner than the aroma indicates, light bready yeast and cereal to the finish. Light, off dry feel, with a dry, slightly slick finish and light, but slightly sharp carbonation. Pretty much a cheap Pale Lager on ale yeast, or at least some ingredients to make it seem somewhat fruity.
