Gold color, not enough carbonation for style. Aroma was barely hitting a lemon note, but the kolsch yeast overall didn't drop much on me.

Taste, all over the place, tries, strides for effervescence, but the carbonation won't allow it, instead of a dry finish, this one hits cardboard notes.

No off flavors, no good flavors.

From tasting notes: Pours a straw color with a quickly dissipating head. Not much of a nose. Some sulfur, light malt and a hint of corn. The flavor parellels the aromas except that there is some astringency fom the grain and a little harsh grain in the flavor. This is a little rough.

Smooth, light bodied beer with a Heineken like malt flavor.

I only had this once or twice before Flying Dog departed Colorado, so I really don't remember much about it. But I guess that means I didn't really get too excited, and now I found a local Kolsch that I like a lot more anyway.
