look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a dark straw hue with a two tiger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured featured grainy pilsner malt, green apple and a grassy hop.

The taste similarly grainy with fruity esters and a faint hop.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a decent mass produced kolsch.

Serving type: bottle

2.85/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz bottle, dated 3 June 2013, into a Belgian snifter.

A: The beer is yellow-gold color in color with excellent clarity, topped by a thin white head most of which fades quickly. Some lacing gets left on the glass.

This is a lightly flavored and delicate style of beer, so the addition of rye could easily change the character. And so it does, I think. The aroma is spicy for style. seemingly due to both hops and the rye. The flavor too is spicy for style, but not so much as to completely transform the kolsch or overpower the malts. Has a clear hint of lemon. Slightly sweet.

M: Crisp; light body; near medium carbonation.

O: A relatively spicy version of the style, yet without being more flavorful than average.
