Poured from bottle into a Pilsener glass.
Appearance: Light gold, straw colored topped off with a reasonably thick foam cap. Bubbles circulated the glass.
Smell: Grainy smell, running on the verge of a metallic scent.
Taste: Grainy taste with slight notes of citrus every now and then. Very mild taste.
Mouthfeel: Light body with a good amount of carbonation. Ends with a dry finish.
Overall: This beer does not leave a memorable impression. The flavors are not as intense as many other beers in the Kolsch family are. It goes down easily which works well for certain situations. I would love to see this beer available in the summer. It is an easy-drinking Kolsch, not the best but it is refreshing.
Serving type: bottle

Serving: Bottle, from the bottle
Served: 27 July 2014
Appearance: Had this one from the bottle, primarily to collect a new bottle cap. The bottle artwork is subpar at best. The cap itself is also quite uninspiring.
Smell: Smells 'beery' which a harsher edge than one would expect from a standard macro brew. Some spicy funk happening from the koelsch yeast, probably.
Taste: Really uninspiring offering from Leinie's- the taste is 'beery' at best and marginally offensive at worst. One of the worst koelsch-style beers I've had. The beer has a weird edginess to it and an underlying crispness, but the edginess really detracts from the style.
Mouthfeel: Feels light and fleeting, with okay carbonation. I would have liked it to be a bit crisper.
Overall: Uninspiring, but not truly subpar.
Serving type: bottle
