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.
