Appearance: Pours a sizable and fluffy head. Some lacing lingers with a scent of bread, grain, and hops. A lot of people rave about the taste of this one, and my guess is that many of them are simply happy to find a "summer" beer without the typical flavors (fruit, wheat, yeast, etc.) and instead a beer with some dryness. Other than for the fact that it is a bit more thin than beers one might drink in the autumn months, there's nothing special here, and certainly nothing that makes me think this is an ideal beer to consume during warm summer months. Yes, it's "crisp" and on the lighter side, but it's just not that interesting. A decent example of a Kolsch and a decent summer beer--but not something I would consider purchasing again at $9.49/six pack.
