3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beery aroma and slightly detectable spices. although not really enough that it impacts the taste that much. In general I don’t care for Kolsch-style ales because they always seem oxidized because of the trip overseas, but this is decent, although most likely not exactly on the style of ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 12 fl. oz. bottle with September 2011 notched out of the label as an expiration date. I am quite surprised that I am the first person to add and review a Samuel Adams brew. This is available in their Summer Styles mixed 12-pack. The pour is a pale yellow with highly agitated carbonation leading up to a thin, white head. The aroma is on the grainy side with a vague citrus backdrop and a thin hoppiness on the edges. The body is light but comfortable. The grainy taste ends slightly dry but it is quite easy to drink.
