Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy medium dirty amber with a thin white ring. Bready yeast aroma. Medium carbonation. Starts crisp then flavor falls flat quickly. Coats the tongue with a bland bready taste that disappears quickly. Not harsh or bitter but not very refreshing or enjoyable.

Jan. 11, 2016; 12 oz. bottle from SA sampler 12-pack. Despite this nondeScript, summery brew not getting any love here, it’s much better than a couple of the other offerings remaining untouched in this Winter sampler.

Bottle from Cabin Pack mixed 12 pack
Box Stamped Enjoy by May, 2016
Actual bottle stamped 3475 so bottled on 12/1315
Into a Reisdorf stange.
A: Pours a turbulent finger high beige head. Slightly murky dark gold color with busy carbonation.
S: Dry scent of crisp white crackers and a touch of dry white wine grape.
T: Dry as expected with a starchy cracker bite. Grassy hop note is Echoes the white wine from the nose. Dry crisp, but strong tasting.
M: Light and very effervescent. Very easy-drinking.
O: Overall pretty good example of a Kolsch if not exceptional. Two in a pack is OK but I would not be interested in purchasing six packs.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow with a small head. The aroma is light, sweet malt, and some fruitiness from the yeast. Flavor is malt, some mellow esters. Not bad, but not much going on, but drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Not a bad beer at all. A Kolsch from Samuel Adams! Good, but it’s too bad they refuse to brew anything above 5% alcohol.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rated on 12-11-2015 (Bottle) This beer’s appearance is a medium sized white head that mostly diminished, yellow hazy body, fizzy and very lively carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is grainy, fruity and malt. The flavor is grainy, citrus, light spice, and crisp. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable beer but it is not all that great tasting and an easily forgettable beer.
