Kolsch seems to be a difficult style for American brewers to pull off. This one is par for the course with more grass, grain, and hop influence than I have experienced in German kolschs. Thus is a decent beer, but as a kolsch, it doesn't really work for me.

Lexington Brewing : Kentucky Light
LOOK: Pale, straw yellow. Small bone white fizzy head. Some lace.
SMELL: Lager yeast, cereal grains, faint flowery hop.
TASTE/FEEL: Light lager all day, with cereal grains, malt sweetness, a flash of bitterness, and no real finish. Light bodied, highly carbonated.
OVERALL: Pretty mainstream lager, but would go just fine with a BBQ or sandwich as a cleansing rinse.

Pours a pale light golden color with a bright fizzy white head, dwindles quickly leaving minimal lace. This beer shows promise of being more than a standard light beer because it's labeled a Kolsch. Aroma some semi sweet malt notes nice fruitiness, herbal grassiness with a hint of yeast character. Flavor has a clean blank canvas of pale malt with light fruitiness and hints of metallic mineral notes. Mild earthiness, light herbal quality very light beer. Light biscuit malts finishes clean with a bit of carbonated water like texture. Light body with a strong level of carbonation flowing finishes pretty clean. Easy effortless drinking experience there's not much to analyze definitely a beer that would do well with the crossover or the BMC drinker.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance is a very slightly hazy pale yellow with a tiny head that is quick to disappear.
Smell is a little corn and a lot of bready grain with some grassy hops thrown in there as well.
Flavor is much like the smell. Bready grain along with a little bit of cooked vegetables. Light hay and grass along with a slight bitterness towards the finish. Finishes pretty crisp.
I'm don't think this is a really great example of a kolsch but tastes more like a dirty pilsener. Flavors aren't all that great but it is an excellent thirst quencher.
