Summertime beer in the winter. Got this single for a dollar.

A - Looks pretty great a hazy straw yellow color and a 1/4 inch of bubbly head that sticks around due to a constant flood of bubbles at the base of the beer.

S - Smells of lemon, herbal grass, and a typical helping of bready malts.

T - A very smooth drinking Kölsch. Maybe could use some more lemon flavor but drinks with some herbal grassy hops and a light bready body. Little sunk makes this a great session beer.

M - Light and crisp.

Overall a great session ale with light taste and a great body. Totally worth a dollar!
