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.

A big thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Great artwork on the can, by the way. Has a bright golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very mild, picking up some light grains, not much else. Taste is grassy, lemons, some floral hops. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is decent but nothing special.

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.

Light straw color.
Easy drinking and light-bodied.
Nothing exciting, however.
