2.63/5  rDev -12.6%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Presentation: 12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: Dull golden colour with a bright clarity, head retention lacks a bit and it quickly dissipates to a ring of lace.

Smell: Faint buttery diacetyl, very light hop (herbal) and a thin sweet pale graininess.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Puckering, dry and lightly pungently crisp. Lots of grain, bland grain at that. Hop bitterness stays in tune with the meek maltiness. Touch of diacetyl in the end with more graininess.

Notes: Lack in any creative character, drinkable but uninspiring. Not horrible but I would not buy it again.

Serving type: bottle

2.03/5  rDev -32.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Presentation: 12oz brown bottle. Has some chaotic artsy fartsy work on the label, but no clear freshness date.

Appearance: Clear, bright golden-yellow with a thin creamy white lace -- just enough retention to keep me interested.

Smell: Pungent, a bit apple-cidery, slightly floral. Musty.

Taste: Smooth, creamy, light and refreshing on the palate. Malt presence is mild, not sweet at all, and lends more to the body of the beer. Hops are herbally, with a very watery lemon flavour. Thin fruitiness, hints of apple skin. Goes crisp, grainy and then dry ... straight into the finish, which thins out and contains a background bready flavour.

Notes: Not too fond of this beer. In fact, it's a close to poor excuse for a Kölsch, mediocre at best. "Why?" comes to mind as I look at all of the other selections on the beer shelves ... and that's not good at all.
