Gold / bronze pour with an aroma of mild hop, skunkyand bread. Taste was also mild hop and yeast. Nice summer beer.

Had at monthly beer club meeting around a fire. Pours clear pale yellow with medium foamy white head. Aroma nice and floral with some pine notes. Flavor light and watery, with bit of lemony floral parts to it. Overall, didn’t really stand out as anything special to me. Just typical plain lighter ale.

Golden yellow color with a tall white soapy head. Aroma of lemon, yeast, and grain. Mild flavor with lemony zest, yeast, and a touch of hops.

Better than expected. Yellow, big loose whate head. Some yeast in the bottom of the bottle. Clean, crisp soapy (in a good way) aroma. Not a whole lot of malt flavor, and simple, crisp hop bite. Tasty, would make a good session beer.

Pale yellow color with a short head that has some lacing. Not much on the nose. I am having a hard time making out anything except a slight maltiness. Slight malt taste too. Finish is clean and crisp. Not bad for a hot day but not much else going on here.

Thanks to ChrisPro for sending this in Blind Bill Round 4. Served in a tulip. Pours brings a golden-colored, transparent beer with a bit of spotty lacing. No real visible carbonation. Nose brings forward a pretty strong grainy presence along with a slight amount of Noble hops, though not enough of the latter to really call this a pilsner. The flavor is mildly fruit with a bit of grain and some mild Noble hops. Fairly chewy, though still a bit light. Carbonation is moderate, though it seems like it should be a bit higher. Light body. Drinks pretty well overall. My guess is either a kolsch or a Munich Helles. Going with the former given the fruitiness and lack of true "bready" flavor. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-15-2011

Draft, listed as a kolsch. Golden and clear with a nice billowing white head. Aroma is sweet malts and grassy and floral hops. Flavor has pilsner malt, floral hops, grass, grain, and honey. Body on the lighter side, but not thin, with good crispness. Solid stuff given the style. Very drinkable.

[on tap] Lemony pine aroma with some base malt. Clear gold under lacy white. Nice balance of bitter and base malt flavour, with a piny bitter and citrus note. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly bitter finish.

Very mild (maybe weak is more accurate), with a bitter malt that grows through a distinct hoppy finish. Okay, especially at 4%, but not memorable.

Exactly as described in the description: Kenzinger is crisp and smooth enough to refresh, but with a spirited, unforgettable flavor that delivers 100% of recommended daily taste bud stimulation. Brewed with pure pilsner malts, light on the bittering hops but loads of hop flavor and aroma; Kenzinger is bound to be your new standby. This is a nice copmparison to Jever in Europe. ENJOY!
