3.05/5 rDev -4.7%
Bottle, poured into pint glass
A- Pours a pale yellow color with a small fizzy white head that reduces to a small film on top, leaving no lacing behind 3.5
S- sweet malt mixes with white grape skin and some faint floral and grassy hop aroma, toasted grain closes it out 3
T- chalky and grainy up front, watery malt, lightly hopped with floral hops, hint of grape skin, bone dry finish 3
M- light bodied with moderate spritzy carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp, bone dry finish 3.5
O- a decent take on the style, easy to drink but nothing really stands out 3

3.44/5 rDev +7.5%
Yet another new one to me, from the Saranac summer twelvepack which contained pairs of six different brews, all with 1/31/14 dates on them, which I purchased a couple of weeks ago.
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip.
a: Clear amber with a finger thick white head which receded quickly to thin surface foam and spotty lacing.
s: Nothing particularly detectable. Slight malt
t: Medium bready malt with hints of sweetness and light fruit. Dry finish.
m: Light to moderate, good body.
o: Decent enough kolsch, that is an ale almost masquerading as a lager with some extra heft to it. One reviewer below called it boring and that underscores the lack of much distinctive taste. Better than most mainstream lagers though, a good warm weather refresher if you like something with a bit more presence than most pilseners or light lagers. However you may find other kolsches with more fruit tones than this one.
