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!

Clear golden with a mid-sized white head. Not a strong aroma, but some grain, light sweet malt, spicy hops, and light herbal notes. Spicy hop flavor, toasty malts, with some grass hops, too. Not a flavor powerhouse but an easy drinking, session ale. Excellent alternative to BMC.

A: poured into a snifter. pours a nice slightly hazy yellow with an orange hue. nice ample white head on top. good retention and a really good amount of lacing. S: Aroma of fresh cut grass and flowers. Nice corn malt aroma, along with a wonderful floral hop smell. some hints of honey and citrus. T: Not like any Kolsch I have ever had. Such a nice floral and citrus hop flavor, but the malts are light like a Kolsch. Some hay and slight corn flavors, along with a hint of honey. Really interesting flavors. M: a little bold for the style. carbonation is a little bit on the higher side. clean, crisp and refreshing. D: very drinkable, even with the hoppier flavor. Actually, I kind of preferred this one over most Kolsch biers. Definitely worth a try.

Hazy gold, decent white head, aroma very nice and hoppy. Almost more like a pilsener than a blonde/gold. Flavor is solid - a hoppy bite that is smoothed out by some sweet malt. I think this beer is under-rated, and I love that fact that it is from Philadelphia!

12 bottle as a gift from a friend in Philly. The light burnt out in my office room, so I have to judge this beerís appearance from the glow of my monitor. Fuck yeah. Pours to a Miller Lite yellow with a one finger white head. Crystal clear. A small, spicy hop aroma and lightly toasted malts. Itís like smelling a great ESB from a foot away - the aromas are just barely there. I think this beer is excellent for itís style. Itís got a beautiful bready malt character balanced by a crisp hop bite. Itís medium-light bodied and perfect for a hot sumer day (Iím typing this naked in a non-air conditioned midwstern house.) Iíll be sure to pick some up when I visit my friends in Philly.
