2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold with a small off white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is corn malt and rye. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet corn malt and grain flavor. Not much going on with this one.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap. Light yellow pour. Smells of malt and not much else. Tastes of cereal maltiness and a slight bitter finish. Didn’t really care for this at all.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear pale straw yellow with a fluffy one finger white head. Pretty good head retention leaving some moderate lacing on the side of the glass.
Aroma is very much like a standard pale lager with cooked vegetables, a little bit of corn, along with a hint of rye spice. Not bad but not really that memorable either.
The flavor is much the same way. Cooked veggies with some stale corn along with a bit of metal. Some lightly toasted breat makes an appearance with some floral notes. Kind of an odd aftertaste that is reminiscent of stale cabbage with a sticky finish. Not clean at all.
Overall, I am not really impressed with this beer in the least. It might be decent as a thirst quencher on a hot day but I could think of many other beers I would rather have. Not one to seek out.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clean clear light golden pour. Thin foamy head. Very much a kolsch style yet lighter than most. Slight notes of rye. Very drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours crisp and clear...no head evident....and quite bubbly... not much of an aroma...actually not much of a taste to it either....but it is a pretty beer. Would be something good to drink on a hot hot summer day after mowing the lawn...

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.
