3.55/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Kayak pours a yellow-orange color, more leaning towards yellow. Small white bubbles permeate draft throughout sipping. Small amount of white head on top of glass as well

Aroma is very typical German-style: grain and yeast. Regretfully there is a musty smell that seems to be most noticeable compared to the other aromas. I think that I let this brew sit too long in the fridge

Taste was refreshing, even for a chilly Minnesota evening. Main flavor is grain, with hint of lemon citrus on back end. No hop character, which is to be expected. Amount of carbonation is perfect for this style of beer- nice mouthful without being overwhelming

Overall, although I think this is a nice brew, it sat in the fridge too long. The musty aroma takes away from the flavor. I think I will table my final verdict until next spring when i can enjoy some fresh stuff.

Cheers!

3.76/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Sester stange. Pours a medium golden amber with a fine one finger white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, clove, light wheat. Flavor is light sweet malt, wheat, clove, light lemon citrus; finishes with sweet wheat and light close, a hint of hop bitterness. Light bodied. A nice, refreshing kolsch style ale with the approprate light malt and spicing. Perhaps a bit sweeter and clove spicy than traditional, but still enjoyable and pleasant.
