2.04/5 rDev -41.4%
Appearance: Light golden yellow color, with a small blonde head.
Aroma: Light white orange smell.
Flavor: Very light wheat orange flavor, non-hoppy. Medium to light bodied, good carbonation.
Overall: Not a good beer. Very harsh finish. The more you drink, the less of it you want.

I drank this from the tap into a pint glass.
The beers pours a dright, clear, fizzy pee colored gold with a white head. Has no lacing.
It doesn't smell like anything and tastes the same.
It tastes like water, utterly horrible. It looks like a bud light and tastes like natty light.

There's still snow on the ground, and Summertime Kölsch is on the shelves. Seems crazy, but why not pick up a single?
Pours a clear yellow to gold color with a one finger foamy white head with decent retention and lacing. Smells like lemon, with grassy and herbal hops, and biscuit malt. Not exactly my favorite combination of ingredients.
Tastes much like it smells with lemon, grassy and herbal hops, and biscuit malt. Some sweetness, with bitterness and tartness. Overall, not working for me.
Light bodied with plenty of carbonation. Nothing special here. I have had many better Kölsch's than this one.

Pretty disappointing. Not very refreshing (I poured one cold and another just cool), nor is it particularly smooth. I found some citrus notes but just barely. Aromas are non-existent, Mouthfeel was good, and while taste was not unpleasant, I certainly won't reach for this beer again unless my only other option is Bud Light Lime. Drinkability is fine, but this beer is just boring.

The beer looked wonderful. It was a little couldy but it had a beautiful white head and laced wonderfully.
The smell was ok. It was full of grains and a little malt.
The taste reminded me of what straw would taste like. It tastes like there was a lot of wheat malt used in this. There wasn't much sweetness and it wasn't very refreshing to me.

Pours a golden yellow in color with a mild haze to it. No head retention, dry and fizzy looking.
The nose is malty, and I notice some faint fruitiness that reminds me of orange peel, limes, maybe rotten apples, and coriander. Some sort of souring odors.
The taste is quite boring, almost non-existent. A touch of citrus comes through, but not in a hoppy way. Gosh, this is one of the boringest beers Ive had in long, long time.
The mouthfeel is very light-bodied and has a crisp refreshing effect. This one is easily drinkable, just not that great tasting.
