Interessant, ein helles Alt...also ein Kölsch? Nun gut, ansprechende Optik, goldgelb mit festem Schaum. Der Antrunk ist sehr würzig, gut gehopft, spritzig, angenehm süß, leicht nach Zitrone, langer Abgang.

peponi (1044) - Mainz, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2014
Aroma: herbs, fresh esters, floral. Appearance: clear straw color, nice white head. Taste: medium bitterness (herbs), herbal and floral notes, quite dry but no empty, strange notes of cellar. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: What should I expect ? I don’t know whether it is a kolsch, or helles alt (what is actually one of the biggest contradictions I’ve ever seen). Nevertheless it is actually quite average stuff with quite nice bitterness.

Erzengel (6723) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2014
Rating from the archive: Hellgolden im Glas und fester Schaum. Der Geruch ist frisch und hopfenbetont. Im Antrunk gibt sich das Bier frisch-herb und gleichzeitig recht süßlich mild. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine frisch-herbe, leicht grasige Note zusammen mit einer angenehmen Süße, die schon fast an einen hellen Bock erinnert. Sehr interessant. 14/13/13/13

Koelschtrinker (14581) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 23, 2013
Hell malziger Beginn mit Hopfenauszügen. Ebenfalls hell getreidig, später wird das Bier malzlastiger, was aber weitestgehend aus der Abmilderung der anderen Aromen resultiert. Milder Ausklang. 6/7/7/7/8/7

EithCubes (5367) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2012
"Helles Alt" = Kölsch, fun times. Screw-top bottle by 11.10.12. Very faint pale malt nose, pours clear golden with plenty of carbonation and a soapy off-white head. Taste is herbal, almost medicinal at first, backs lightly off into the pale malt, has the character of a light Heller Bock. Swirling crispness with faint bitterness, light-medium body. Could have fooled me, this would have passed as a Golden Ale or anything similarly generic. Still, clean and easy-going.
