Bright and clear yellow-gold with visual carbonation and a 1 finger frothy white head with medium-low retention. Virtually no lacing.
Pleasant nose but not alot going on. Light pale malt. A touch of lemon peel. And a faint touch of wheat and sweet fruit almost along the lines of watermelon.
Flavor is similar to the nose. Not alot going on with the flavor.
Light bodied mouthfeel with good carbonation.
Overall is ok. It's not bad and easy to drink. It's just boring. This style is just boring. I'm in a search to find a kolsch that's a step above others. I think many people agree as I've seen an avg low rating for many beers in the style.
