look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Poured a light golden color with two fingers worth of sticky looking head, which retained well and left a very light lacing throughout.

S - German Kolsch all the way. Not sure how to define the smell, but it is very typical of my limited experience with the style. Not a huge fan of it, but it was mild in this instance.

T - Surprisingly good! Again, my limited experience with the style has usually led to a skunky type flavor, but this was crisp and highly enjoyable. There was no long lasting finish, which I think was a nice feature.

M - Very nearly medium-bodied. I was expecting something far more watery. A pleasant surprise.

O - It was over 90 out when I got home from work and popped this one open. I was pleasantly surprised. The flavor, feel, and even appearance, which remained nicely carbonated all the way down were exactly what I needed. I only wish I had another one. Highly recommend!
