3.16/5 rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3
Appearance: Clear, medium golden body, with a huge, dense and coarse white head, which retains well. The carbonation surges like the flakes in a slow globe, with thin and scattered lacing.
Aroma: Spicy rye, lightly toasted malts, cooked cereal and a modest herbal hop presence define the aroma.
Taste: Opens with a modest burst of herbal hops, soon followed by cooked cereal, some cracker malt, and a hint of rye. As the taste progresses, the hops intensify with a moderate medicinal presence. The hops although modest, dominate the latter part of the taste.
Mouth feel: Fairly full, with slight stinging carbonation.
Drinkability/notes: Pleasant and inoffensive, certainly not a "top-tier" Kölsch, but then, you already knew that. Given a choice between this and a macro lager, Leinenkugel's Canoe Paddler wins hands down. "Best by" date of May, 2013.
Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Source: Purchased at Wal-Mart in Texas as a selection of a Brewmaster's Choice build-your-own six-pack for $8.99.
Serving type: bottle
