I had this several times but for the sake of reviewing, I borrowed a stange which is what this review is based off of.
The appearance was a fairly clear yellow color with streams of carbonation seen rising rapidly. One finger white foamy and bubbly head dissipated within about a half minute. Light lacing stuck slightly and then fell.
The smell had some sweet grainy cereal and corn with a slight grassiness as well.
The taste was mainly the same sweet corn with grassiness. There's not as much cereal in the flavor.
The mouthfeel had a decent harshness but managed to control itself decently. I'd say this one was pretty light and sessionable.
Overall, good for what it is but I think I'm still trying to get my bearings on this kolsch sort of thing.
