Poured from a 12oz. can into a pint glass.

Pours a pale straw color with a huge, foamy head that slowly dissipates and leaves som scattered lacing.

The aroma is of lemon, grass and a little sour funk in the background that seems a bit off.

The taste is lemon first, then a bit of bitter with a grassy, dry finish.

The mouthfeel is light and crisp, a bit bubbly with a slightly sticky finish.

Overall, a decent kolsch although, to me, something seemed slightly off. The can is fresh so that's not the issue. Not the best example of the style that I've had.

Out of a Summit sampler.
Poured into a pint glass.
It's yellow with a fair head. Decent carbonation.
Smells like grass. Not a lot going on.
Tastes like grass, malty with a bitter finish. Nice hop bite. Not bad.
Nothing extraordinary, but pleasant. Nice price too.
