One of the more interesting appearances, in that, the head appeared thick and creamy but was airy and light to feel. Nonetheless, it sat atop a darker golden color.

Very simple cereal malt scent with a little toast like aroma.

The taste is ultimately Kolschy, with strong cereal grain, toast and biscuity maltiness. For a light beer it's quite good with a nice smooth flavor but it ends as most light beers taste....with a strong metallic aftertaste. Otherwise it is easy to drink, thirst quenching and tasty.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a Kentucky Light glass, the beer pours a mostly clear straw gold color with about a quarter inch white head that stayed around for a bit. There's a small amount of lacing. The brew smells like grainy/bready malt and some light grassy/herbal hops. Taste is just like the aroma, mostly grainy with a clean finish. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's nice and refreshing, and is well carbonated. It's easy to drink, it certainly wouldn't be a problem to drink a 6-pack of this. I think it's a nice lighter beer, it's worth a try.
