2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from a six pack. Pours clear pale golden with a medium white fluffy head with decent retention. Aroma is grainy, generic beer. Taste is lightly sweet, grainy, fruity (lemon, berries maybe), dull. The hops come through in the finish a bit stronger after it warms a bit, providing a little bitterness. Some tartness comes through in the finish as well. Creamy mouthfeel, thin body, watery. A really bland beer. Why not make the rye more prominent and make something that’s a little more interesting and exciting? Seems like they played it too safe here.

OMG this doesn’t taste like an IPA or Imperial Stout. Therefore it’s lacks flavor. Sometimes you drink a beer simply because it is crisp and refreshing. This is good for that.

bottled - clear yellow in color. Light, crisp and refreshing but also nothing special. A good summer afternoon beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Straw color with a diminished white head. Scents are muted, with some floral and flour scents. Some light honey and simple sugar aromas as well. Grain and pale malt start. A bit of bitterness and spice noted from the rye. A bit acidic/metallic. A lawn mower/canoe paddling brew at best. 2/13

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear, medium gold, thin white head. Malty but bright. Balanced tastes, a tiny bit heavy for a kolsch. Not picking up much spiciness from the rye. Good, but nothing that really stands out.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pretty weak although I should be grateful that it’s not one of those awful beers that Leinie likes putting out these days, crappy fruit beers and shandies. Not much to offend here but not much flavor either.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Only in America would rye malt be added to a Kolsch. Clear gold with lots of visual carbonation. Small white head the lingers around with a small bit of lacing. aroma of sweet malt and a little spice from the rye. Thin body that is on the sweet side. Refreshing finish.

Thin, dry, crisp, bready, refreshing and uninteresting. This is a clean beer that is great on a scorching hot day. It has a bit of spice from the rye but not much else to speak of.
