12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy yellow gold with a medium creamy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet bready bubblegum malts with some noble hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with a touch of fruit and some peppery grassy hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, just OK.

Pours a mostly clear, yellow color. Not too much of a scent with some grains and wheat. Taste is rather malty while the texture seems a little too thin. There are some hints of citrus. Being my first Kolsch style beer, I’m not sure if this is good or not for the style. Quite drinkable, just wish there was some more volume and taste to the beer.
