12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, we’ll retained whit head over a clear, gold (SRM 5) body....nose is light cereal, hints of pear, apple fruits, minimal hop spice, light rye......taste starts with hints of pear, apple type sweetness, hints of rye, ending with a mild bitter finish....mouth feel light of medium, soft acid on the finish, no alcohol warmth. This is really not a kolsch. The rye comes in way too much for this very delicate style. It would be interesting to taste the identical recipe without the rye.

Pours very light with slight aroma and a hint of skunk. I don’t get any rye.
Light mouthfeel and clean finish. So clean in fact, that it’s hardly there.
Maybe if you were paddling a canoe on a hot day....? dunn4040 (131) - Georgia, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Pours a golden yellow with a thin fizzy white head. Looks like a slightly livelier version of a miller high life. Aroma is sweet malts, grain, grass, and a hint of skunkiness. Nothing too off putting here. Flavor is very mild. Nothing up front but it fades into a pleasant maltiness on the backend, then into a seltzer water like taste. Mouthfeel is definitely on the thinner side. Definitely not the worst beer I’ve ever had but I am kind of disappointed that I bought a whole 6 pack of it. Stevesie (336) - - FEB 17, 2014
From bottle. Pours a very pale gold with some white head and quite a bit of carbonation. Grainy nose. Bland taste, not much rye, which it could desperately use. Not a lot going on with this. Decent warm weather quencher, but not much else. Cutman260 (9) - Norwalk, Iowa, USA - FEB 10, 2014 does not count
Lighter gold color, medium head, slightly fruity aroma, slight bitters, mildly yeasty on the foot.

Pours clear and gold with a thick white foamy head. Good carbonation in the glass. To me, tastes remarkably just like Miller Lite. Has a yeasty backend with a good bit of carbo-bite on the front. The taste is kind of bland, much like Miller Lite. seymour (2120) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into a Willybecher glass. Clear golden colour with weak white foam. Weak malt, hops, and yeast aspects too. None of the distinct Kölsch traits: grainy, slight fruitiness, peppery noble hops. Not terrible, but sure seemed like a bland mass produced pale lager to me. It’s too bad: I like Leinenkugel’s and I love a good Kölsch, this is a real missed opportunity. Ed5388 (3488) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2014
2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours a light golden color with a small white head of foam. Taste and aroma were identical. Not much going on. Grainy, yeasty, with some light citrus. SSSteve (4006) - - JAN 16, 2014
bottle. clear gold. small head. kind of lifeless. sweeten cereal pilsner malt aroma with some grassy hops. a bit tart, but i think its just a spicyness from the rye. its ok but the appearance isn’t very exciting. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Pale yellow with a white head. Pretty blah and bland beer. Stale hops, pale malts, crackery, biscuit notes.
