A - Exactly what you'd expect: pale, golden, clear. Very nice amount of bubbling.
S - A hint of banana, which wasn't expected, but other than that, very little aroma. Pilsner-y.
T - Pretty decent. Not particularly crisp. A little bit of sweetness, especially as you continue (perhaps that's the added "malt" to which they allude). Not very hoppy at all, not particularly bright; I expected a hoppier drink. This might not be a bad beer overall, but it's a terrible example of a Kölsch. Score reflects my indecision on that front.
M - A slight coat, mostly thin, but actually a smoother drink than the average Kölsch.
O - This isn't bad at all, but it's entirely not a Kölsch style beer. Where do you come down on the score, then: drinkability, or accuracy? Somewhere in the middle? Regardless, this can be a tasty and refreshing Summer beer, no question.
