A can from Tempe to Orange County. On to the beer:

Golden hay colored with a little haze, topped with a head which retains decently, leaving spotty lace around the walls of the glass. The aroma is grainy, hay, a kiss of fruit, simple and straightforward. The flavor is as well, though it meets the standard for a kolsch. It's crisp and clean with hay and a snap of hops, done in a way where it's flavorful as well. It's light bodied and very refreshing, pushing the beer on course as a Kolsch-styled beer that I would recommended.

Serving type: can

Slightly hazy. Visible carbonation, but little head.

Somewhat musty, grassy, and mildly citrusy. Needs to be brighter. More crisp.

German malts with barley and some wheat malt flavors. Vaguely lemony. Kind of cluttered in taste. Almost mucky.

Feels alright. Somewhat thin. Mild carb.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear goldenstraw with a modest head that delivers just a few splashes of lace

Smell: Grainy, with a hint of apple

Taste: Just a touch of shortbread in the malt, a hint of apples and hops and a slightly grainy finish

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation
'
Overall: Not much to talk about here but a refreshing quencher for the hot days in Arizona, no doubt
