look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Look: Clear, pale straw. two fingers of bright fluffy white head dissipates slowly. No lacing.

Smell: Light tinny hoppyness that exemplifies so many great German beers. A little wheat, a little bready malt

Taste: Bready malt up front, light tinny bitter finish. A little lemon zest in there. Crisp and refreshing.

Feel: Really light body. Medium Dry finish. Pretty watery

Overall: Not really indicative of the style. It drinks more like a watered down Pilsner. Meh. It is a crushable sixer that would be pretty good for yard work but there are much better options.

Clear straw yellow color with a fluffy white head, decent retention and lacing. Biscuity/cracker aroma, very little else. Taste is grainy, light malty, just a slight hop bitterness present. Mouthfeel was pretty light, but fairly normal for the style. Overall, this one really didn't appeal to me, probably wouldn't buy again.

I don't usually go for beers this light, but I really enjoyed this Kolsch. So easy to drink, so smooth and light. When it's a hundred degrees outside, you pretty much need a beer like this. I think this one is much better than the masses seem to, so if you're willing to give it a try, I think you'll like it.

Dry, light beer, light hop presence. Grainy with a cereal taste.
