3/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Pours a brilliant champagne with a foamy one inch ivory head that quickly dissipates, leaving minimal spotty lacing.

Grain, cracker-like pilsner malt, lightly perfumey hops, and a touch of citrus form the aroma. Rye lingers in the background, but there's initially an off scent reminiscent of halitosis or body odor that disappears eventually.

Grain, toasted, bready malt, and a bit of sourness form the flavor. The rye adds a peppery bitterness at the finish. Fairly bready overall.

Body is on the light side, with fairly high carbonation lifting the flavor from the tongue quickly.

More malt character than expected. I'm guessing the tangy flavor comes from the yeast. That off aroma, though is pretty nasty.

Serving type: bottle

3.03/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

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
