12 oz can served in a snifter.

Pours light amber, slightly hazy, with a weak head and minimal lacing.

Aroma: mild and pleasant with hops and bready malts. As expected for style.

Flavor: fruity for style, but not objectionable.

Feel; Light carbonation and surprisingly full medium body.

12 ounce can - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Light yellow-hued body, lightly hazed, it barely manages to scare up a half-inch, loose, white head that sputters out in a flash.

Smell: Dried herb, lemon peel with an edge of sweetness to it, and the perfunctory pils.

Taste: Pils malts, faintly bready, a bit of cereal sweetness and a pop of citrusy lemon juice. Light Continental hop character, scantly grassy with a relatively low bitterness. Predominately lemony on the backhalf and into the near-quite-crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Just a smidge over medium carbonation.

Overall: Merely satisfactory; it's not stellar, but fine and refreshing.

This is a regular purchase for me in the summer. Good in the can, better from the growler where available, and best from the tap. Like other kolsch beers, the flavor is best right away. Don't leave it sitting out once open -- drink it fresh.

I don't notice a distinctive smell. Nice golden color. Easy to drink. Refreshing.
