3.5/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours to a permanent thin white head and moderate lacing. Color is pale gold. Aroma is pale grains and white grapes. Flavor is much the same with a noble hop flavor and bitterness to balance the scant sweetness that is present in this dry beer. Mouthfeel is light. Overall, not a bad brew, and yes, it passses my Kolsch test (vinous notes detected).

A= Pours a totally translucent yellow color with a light bubbly white head on top that rises and falls fast to a thin layer on top of the glass.

S= The smell is light and "beery" It smells like a more concentrated Linnies red to me. Not too much in the way of rye or hops...

T= The taste almost confirms my suspicion on the smell. A nice light drinkable beer for sure. Super light and airy. I could drink a ton of these and the rye character is minimal. I get a little wheat maybe? I'm not sure if there is wheat actually in this beer but it tastes a little wheaty.

M= light and airy.

O= This is a super drinkable beer that's for sure. It actually may be "smoother" than the regular linies red I think. Worth checking out on a summer day and possibly to repeat if you are looking for an easy drinker.

A: Blonde with a fast-receding white head. Looks a bit like champagne.

S: Sweet apple(ish) and floral scent.

T: A sweet apple like "white wine/champagne" taste with other fruit notes and a touch of rye.

M: Light bodied and highly carbonated that is crisp and refreshing.

O: Very drinkable. Especially on a hot day when you don't want anything too heavy.

3.48/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked: May2012-E20011421. Sampled on June 6, 2013.

It pours pale yellow with a moderate white, fizzy head like a good Kolsch should. The head settles a tad but generally sticks around until the end.

The aroma is full of grainy malts and a touch of pineapple citrus. The hops are muted but clean and crisp ultimately.

The body is light with a creamy texture.

The taste is also a grain-filled enterprise with a subtle citrus note that is muted yet also noticeable. It ends clean and crisp. Kolsch's are simple styles and not dissimilar to a Pilsener and this really meets the grade as far as I am concerned. Refreshing and easy to drink.
