SA E-W Kolsch 12oz into pint. Pours piss yellow, crystal clear, with a 1/4" white head. Smells weird, unlike any other Kolsch Ive ever had before. A weird floral, sweet note, almost like a apple jolly rancher sits in the background, along with the standard biscuit malts that I usually detect. No hops are present here. Taste is close to the nose, with the weird sweet character coming through. Overall I'm not a fan of this beer at all, and I probably will just save the other five from the few cases I have, and pass them out to family when they are over. I truly don't think this is a solid representation of the Kolsch style, but I guess a few out there could see this as a mediocre summer beer.
