21.11.2015-Flasche 0,33l im Bierlager-shared Ricardo. Gelber, ganz leicht trüber Körper mit ordentlicher weisser Krone. Hopfig, fruchtig - eine interessante Intepretation des Kölsch.

Austrian craft brewery stretching the limits of the classic Kölsch style by applying a more ’liberal’ hop profile to it, sounds interesting. Lacing, thick, moussy, egg-white, quite dense head over a lightly hazy yellow blonde beer with greenish hue. Pleasant and fragrant aroma of lemon zest, lime blossoms, sweet white grapes, raw pineapple, withering tulips, gooseberry, sourdough, sherry, fresh grass. Crisp onset, sweet fruitiness of pineapple, gooseberry, apple peel and a hint of banana, clearly more ester-forward than the regular Kölsch, spritzy and notably minerally carbo, lightly oily, smooth body, bit grainy with a sourdough quality to it, which is quickly enlightened by a soft but retronasally fragrant and delicate hop character, softly bittering and drying, yielding floral, refreshingly grassy and lemon peel-like flavours and carrying into the throat without becoming too harsh. Interesting beer: clearly a lot more estery than your average Kölsch (how long has this been cold lagered?) but this ’deviation’ from the style is compensated with a surprisingly delicate hop bouquet, which brings exotic fruitiness of its own and in that sense pairing well with the fruity esters. This is an ’artistic’, free interpretation of a Kölsch, but it still has the delicacy and (sometimes underestimated) subtlety of the style. Interesting, and I do like to see this old style being revived in the current craft beer revolution like this.

draught@Erzbierschof - pretty clear golden-blond beer with a persistent white foam; nice lace; fresh aroma of herbs and yellow fruits; low carbonation, moderate malt body, light sweetness, gently bitter and dry; quite long herbal, bready and fruity finish - fresh and interesting

Yellow-golden with a frothy white head. Pale malt, dusty, light straw notes and soft caramel hints with a citrussy hunch. Soft texture with a watery light body. Some sweetness and citrus hoppiness kicks in. Short to medium lasting finish.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2015 Pours golden haze, with foamy white head. Aroma is pale malty, with hints of citruses. Similar is flavor, with smooth malty notes and citrusy, bitter hints. finish is bitter dry. malt swetnees is mild low, hop bitterness is medium. carbonation is medium, body is soft.
This is not conventional kolsch, but modern interpretation of this style. Interesting.

Full tasting beer. It was more an IPA or APA becouse of the hops but still the aftertaste of kölsch was there. thanks for the beer! Cheers!
