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.
