I picked up this single 12oz brown bottle from the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL as part pf a build-your-own six pack for $9.99. No freshness date.
The beer poured a clear pale gold color and made a 1-finger white head, but the head dissipated in less than 10 seconds and it left absolutely zero lacing. Not an impressive start.
Upon opening the bottle a bit of skunkiness came out, but thankfully it didn't last long. It is also unfortunate that there wasn't much there after the skunkiness dissipated. All I got was a touch of grain and a bit of mustiness.
This beer is really bland without much of anything noteworthy. It has a very light graininess to it along with very light fruitiness (grapey). Mild herbal hops with a corresponding mild bitterness round out what flavor there is.
Light and dry mouthfeel with good carbonation.
I'm a fan of Kolsch's, but really didn't enjoy this one. Bland and unexciting.
