I bought this because I am usually a big fan of Kolsch style beers. This one didn't really taste like a Kolsch to me at all. It kind of reminded me of just a normal AAL. It was refreshing on a hot day, could only drink about one of them though. This beer just weighed to heavy on my stomach. Maybe it was the rye in it. Overall, if you want to pay a lot for an AAL, because that is what this beer tastes like, then buy this beer.

Poured into a tulip glass, color is straw, but very clear, transparent, head is bright white with lacing on the glass.

Smell is grainy, no pilsen, no wheat, no biscuit, no grassy hoppiness as expected from a kolsch.

Taste is a macro lager profile, no strong malt presence, subdued flavors and overcarbonated.

Mouthfeel is way to crisp and sharp for kolsch, too much carbonation,hint of lingering flavor from biscuit or wheat.

Overall, a poor take on the kolsch style, screams macro lager with maybe a touch of biscuit or wheat.

This beer is basically a light beer. It has nothing much to review. It doesn't really taste horrible, it just has no taste at all. There isn't a hint of maltiness, or hoppiness or even the grainy taste a good American lager has. It has no smell, mouthfeel is very thin, carbonation is barely detectable... I don't know what this beer is supposed to be, or why it was brewed.
