Postmortem Brew Review
Pale straw yellow color. 
Mostly malt grain and trace floral hop aromas.
White, tightly bubbled crisp, one finger head.
Head lacing fairly nonexistent.
Malty grain taste with a bit of sourness.
Active carbonation balances any thin watery appearance.
Light bodied. Slightly drying on finish. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Here's another crisp Kolsch for our perusal. These beers are refreshing in taste. A bit crisper than a lager. A bit more floral bite on the finish. Perfect for warm summer days. Great for killing your thirst while easy on the taste buds and alcohol. An ale yeast, not a lager, is used to set this apart from ordinary beer. The beer will have a dry, tart, almost sour taste. It is not for everyone's palate, but I prefer the tartness.

Freshen up with a Kolsch and see what your summer is missing.
