This would be a great kölsch but for the corn. Even so, it's not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Rock Bottom. The pour is a hazed light yellow with a small white head that leaves big webby lace. Aroma is sugar, grass, mild fruits, grainy. Taste is very bitter for kolsch, mild soapy hops, lemon, dough, moving a bit to dish water but not gross at all. Palate is clean, sharp, refreshing. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Rock Bottom. Perfectly clear yellow with a white head. Semi-sweet nose of mild grains, a distinct dough scent of the yeast, and a light straw and corn note. Flavor is semi-sweet, a bit husky and lightly crisp (a little wet too), with a light honey and lemon flavor throughout. Drinkable (I had two pints, could have had a few more), but nothing overly exciting.
