A- lemon yellow with a small and quickly fading white head. Just a little haziness.
S- herbal hops and a big grainy, sweet, stewed cabbage character. Something is way off.
T- the beer tastes better than it smells but that canned/stewed vegetal character still persists. Some light grainy sweetness and soft bitterness are hiding behind the off flavor.
M- medium body, low carbonation, who cares this beer is awful.
O- really hoping this was a bad can because this is one of the worst beers I have ever had with some obvious flaws.

Poured from the can into a Gaffel stange glass. May 13th 2014 batch.
Excessive head out of the can. Giant fistful and growing, beach white and soapy. Lots of staying power and retention though. Body color though is real nice, crystal brass clear with sudsy pinhead carbonation and slow rising bubbles. After settling looks pretty good.
Real interesting nose. Big herbal hop presence, and spice quality. There's this real great garden hot herb and floral like presence going on. Spicy and nice malt dough, this is real winner.
With that great nose, you would think we'd hit the stratosphere, but instead we something just solid and good. Good malt presence with a classic spice hop herbal kick. Simple bodied with moderate carbonation and a good neutral finish, and only slightly bready. Big on hop. Lingering light body making for easy drinking.
Final result is just a solid Kolsch, with a great spicy kick.

One of the best Kolshes I have tried, yet I'll be the first to say that the Kolsh isn't my favorite style. My personal opinion as a lowly consumer is that Champion should have gone for a more drinkable second beer to choose to can (other than the Missle). I would recommend for anyone that prefers lighter beers to go with one of Champion's Goses before this.
The Kolsh itself has more or less of a spice kick to it. I have heard my college friends with unrefined pallets refer to its slightly spicy aftertaste as "bitter" - which is something you never want to hear about a Kolsh. I'm a big fan of Champion, but if I have a choice between the two canned beers, 9 out of 10 times I'm grabbing the Missle.
