1.86 litre jug from the brewery. let me start off by saying that i rated this beer according to its style, and purpose. a refreshing, good tasting beer that lets you pound back as many as you want. dark copper to brown in colour, with a large foamy head that stays. lots of bubbles shooting up the Kolsch glass. a beautiful sight. not very aromatic, but bread and cereals are the main notes in the nose. taste is caramel, and cereals. like a liquid Muslix. crisp, clean and refreshing. perhaps the "cleanest" tasting beer i’ve ever had. i make sure i stock up on this beer everytime it comes out.

Syrianne (5) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2015 does not count
Ambrée translucide avec un mousse bien présente. Petit côté épicé. Malt et houblon bien sentit en bouche avec un petit coté caramel et pain grillé. Bonne petite ambrée. Plutôt légère en bouche, elle n’envahit pas le palais. Amertume légère ce qui la rend plus intéressante de mon côté pour une bière de sa catégorie, sans perdre sa légereté.

How: Bottle (600 ml) at home. Bottle in June 2015, so 3 months old.

>>> A raisins forward - so not that much on style - but otherwise clean and easy driking german lager.

- Clear amber with a small off-white head, moderate retention, leaving a small ring of foam and little lacing.
- There’s a raisin presence upfront in both aroma and taste which I find a bit annoying.
- A well dosed mix of caramel and toasted malts give this beer a good backbone.
- Body is medium, as is carbonation. The mouthfeel is a bit oily.
- There’s a mild but lingering herbal bitterness.
- Too raisins forward for me, but otherwise it’s a clean and easy drinking german style lager.

Flavors: Raisins, caramel, toasted malts, herbal notes, mild spiciness, mild noble hops.

Pours a pretty amber with a fat tan cap that leaves nice lace. Aroma is typical caramel/"red fruit"/roasted grain. Taste is the same predictable sweet, fruity caramel malt, light toasted nuts, light mineral water. The bitterness kicks in just about the time I’m starting to wonder where it is. Solid interpretation of the style. Definitely lacks the carbonation of the 2014 version (based on my buddy Freaky_Tiki’s review)

Bamsen78 (4605) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2015
Draught @ The Boathouse, Kitchener. Pours hazy copper brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, with notes of caramel and yeast and touches of bread. Dusty and sweetish flavour of malt, caramel and bread, with notes of hops and yeast. Bitterish and slightly estery aftertaste. Slightly watery, despite the medium to high carbonation. Nice, especially for the non-native style,

pumpkinhead2 (653) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Bière orangée cuivrée, parfaitement limpide, effervescence très faible, et surmontée d’un col beige bien dense et mousseux qui se réduit tout doucement en s’agrippant sur les parois du verre. Arômes de pain grillé, sucre d’orge et caramel, avec notes de grain et de raisin rouge, ainsi qu’un léger boisé. Nez peu intéressant, complexité et intensité plutôt faibles. En bouche, pétillement tout de même assez élevé, breuvage mince au palais. Au goût, pain grillé, grain rôti et boisé, significativement moins sucré que ce que le nez laissait présager, un peu de saveurs de sucre d’orge et de caramel. On note également un houblon qui semble principalement floral et végétale (branchage, feuille verte…), en route vers une finale bien sèche à l’amertume de faible à modérée. Bière significativement plus intense en bouche qu’au nez, bonne intégration des différentes saveurs entre elles, équilibre malt/houblon intéressant, mais complexité qui demeure tout de même faible. Bière correcte, sans plus…

Mondial de la bière 2015 - Ambrée, avec un col de mousse mince, de couleur crème. Nez épicé, sucré, de caramel et malté. Goût de caramel, de grains grillés et de houblons en final. C’est plutôt mince en bouche.
