I picked up a 6 of this because it was on sale. Mistake. Pours with a moderate head that persists fairly well. Initial nose indicates that this might have a Kolsch taste to it, but scents can be deceiving. The first taste is surprisingly disappointing. There's a strong hint of corn, and some degree of bitterness. It completely lacks any bread flavor that I associate with a quality Kolsch. Rather, it has the mouth feel of an American lager+. In that sense, it's clean and non-offensive, and definitely a pounding beer -- as in just finished mowing the lawn in Texas beer. I hope Saint Arnold's reformulates this with possible adjustments to the malt and yeast (or rebrands it for what it is, along with a steeper price reduction), because a good Kolsch is hard to find. As is, it's disappointing, and I'll be avoiding it and its sidekick, Weedwacker.
