2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light amber-yellow body is capped with a large white head that dies down to a thin cap with lcing evident. Not much on the nose, a bit of fruit and maybe a little pepper. Taste is mainly citrus with a sweet undertone. Quite light with a short palate. While it’s not particularly interesting, it is nicely balanced and quite refreshing. Not bad, but not a real winner.

Good beer in bottle but excellent on tap. Super refreshing, light bodied beer. Don’t know how ’kolsh-y’ it is compared to a traditional kolsh but good nonetheless

Pee yellow colour with fairly low carbonation. Aromas of light citrus and sweet malts. Very light and dry on the palate, some faint sweetness in the mid-palate. Not a lot of flavour but not completely boring either. Not a bad session beer for my current activity - sitting watching the cricket.

A dry, dusty aroma carries notes of citrus and biscuity malt. The taste has a creamy malt underlay with plenty of light lemon and tangerine citrus. The palate’s a little thin and it’s a bit short, but it’s a lively, interesting session beer.

I haven't had too many kolsch's to compare and this beer gets a relatively low average score but I really enjoy it. It's clear straw with a pillowy white head which dissipates quickly. A nice hit of malt up front followed by melon and citrus along with a decent amount of bitterness. A good session beer or to drink with spicy food or some nice fatty German pork products.

taste is sweet malt, hint of burnt oat, slightly citrus hop overtone. Very drinkable kolsch, sweeter than usual.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub on July 14, 2013. As part of a tasting paddle.
Stated to have 22 IBU.
Clear straw yellow to pale golden color, white head. Sweet, herbal, hoppy taste. Herbal hoppy aftertaste. Well hopped for a traditional Kölsch, but works well for my taste. Medium to fizzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Some faint hints of butterscotch in the taste too, not disturbing the balance though. Sweet, malty, grainy scent, also hints of butterscotch. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

At Bitter Suite, New farm. Poured a clear bright golden colour with a thin white foamy head that laced poorly. Low to moderate carbonation with small bubbles forming trails. Aroma subtly of sweet malt and some grain. Taste of soft malt sweetness up front followed by a mild bitterness. Light body. Soft, light, smooth with a short and mildly acicic bitter finish. OK.
