Draught sample at the Golden Tap Awards 2006. Pours a clear golden-yellow with a good sized white head. This version is well above the expected 5.4% abv, so it definitely has some boozy notes in the nose and flavour. But it also has a nice sweet, fruity and slightly floral character. Reminds me of King PilsBock, actually. I can understand not liking this if you’re going in expecting a straight-up Kölsch, but as a strong golden ale, it’s not too bad. I look forward to trying a later batch once they’ve worked the kinks out.

Cask @ Volo Cask Days ’06. Cloudy yellow. Nose is orange, lemon, light malt. Smells like frozen orange juice concentrate. Flavor is orange juice concentrate, faint bready malt. Not much else. This is nothing like a kolsch. Some sort of fruit beer maybe, but certainly not a kolsch.

Tap. Pours gold with large white bubbly head. Gentle sweet aroma, malty lagered ale. Chewy texture, caramel and toffee, Sweet in short. Short lasted finish.

Stale fruity malt aroma,yellow. small white head. Soft malt flavour, with some mild hops. Light bodied, drinkable. Almost macro-like. Not kolsch-like!

Draught. At BeerBistro, 2006 Golden Tap Awards. Initially wasn’t going to rate this based on the story I heard about the genesis of this "Kölsch" - but if the brewer is going to keep trotting this out at festivals, I’m rating it. Yellow with a wisp of white head - vaguely smells of stale grainy malt and a stale herbal sort-of bitterness. The taste reminded me of a sort of punk-ass, semi-nasty, slightly herbal but mostly stale Gritstone knock-off - grainy, a little harsh, harsher on warming and a slightly ugly aftertaste. Acceptable body, grainy and fizzy - didn’t hate it as much at the end, but Lordy not a good beer - something’s not right. And kolsch? Yeah - and I’m a Patagonian sheep-herder ... * update: let me clarify - this beersickle IS interesting, but it’s neither a Kolsch nor a bock - it’s not awful, but I found it sort of harsh and boring - I never bought in to the "if life gives you lemons, make lemonade" pollyannaism.
