2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Lyst og lett, forfriskende. Fint skum som imidlertid gir seg fort. Ble raskt litt flatt i smaken. Trenger ikke prøve den igjen. Nytt forsøk fra fat på Cardinaltreff juni-13: kjelleraroma og ufrisk smak, med industrell, pilsneraktig avslutning. Ikke særlig god. Ned fra 2.7 til 2.4. Fra fat på Cardinal juni-14: mye bedre enn forrige gang, dette er en lett og frisk start på Mandag i annen.Litt metallisk ettersmak men allikevel opp til 2.9.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Quick-review: Hazy yellowish. Fruit, grass and alittle herbs.
Same on the palate, with more malt. Medium - body, alittle dull prehaps. Alittle "edgy", rough.
Biggish offwhite head. Hazy yellow body. Dense mealy fruity rubbery grassy aroma, quite harmonic, with malty notes. Dry-sweet rubbery floral grassy taste with fruity bready notes. Sharp edge to it. A bit stale. Dry grassy aftertaste with chalky notes. Nice, but kölsch isn’t really my thing. (0.5l bottle from Fenaknoken.)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, pale golden with a creamy, finger thick white head leaving excellent foam lacing. Band aid, grains grass and sweet herbs are present in the aroma. Sweet flavor with a light lasting bitternes that seem to build upon each mouthfull. Grassy, fruity with cereal notes and also some acidity to be noticed. Carbonation is prickling and the texture is juicy. LKight to medium body. A real summer refreshment from tap at Cardinal as Ægir Cardinal Kvase Kölsch
