3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hellgelbe Farbe, schöner hopfenfrischer Geruch. Der Antrunk ist hopfenbetont, frisch-hopfig, leicht citrusartig. Zum Hauptteil sehr angenehm herb, hopfenbetont. Die Zitrusnote schaut mit leichter Süße unter der angenehmen, aber deutlichen Herbe hervor. Sehr tolles Zusammenspiel der Aromen. Der Saphir-Hopfen kommt mit seinen tollen Zitronenaromen gut raus. Im Nachgeschmack recht langweilig, schön weich-cremig. Die Herbe hält sich und leichte Ananasaromen treten hinzu. Lecker! 12/12/12/12

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Insisting pale ale with a wonderful pineapple-like colour. Well hopped with german/czech hop types, like an IPA with pilsner hops. Discrete aroma which is in the same street as the taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle. Vibrant hop aroma shows a core of German hops: lemon meringue, lemon balm, lime juice, faint pineapple and "tropical" fruit mish-mash, somewhat grassy from dry-hopping. Medium-light body, lightly sweet, highly bitter, looks and smells like Kellerpils but I understand that this is top-fermented. Hops do give off a minor cheese / sweat character but it’s not distracting from the juicy-floral-citrus quality that makes it so much fun to smell and drink. Good shape, ingredients expressed well, flavor balance in the mouth achieved.

16.09.2014, 0,35l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly grainy, flowers, wet grain, wet socks, weeds, light malts, wet hay, cereal. Taste is kind of harsh floral, weeds, bark, light malts, flowers, hay, paper. Medium bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

Bottle courtesy of Tammy Tuck, thank you ma’am! I have to caveat this rating by saying the bottle was about 18 months old, so not quite yet into the "terrible twos." Clear golden color, white head. Nice fruity aroma. Taste starts with a bit of fruit, then a bitter finish. Plain.

0,75l bottle from the shop at Hoffstättner brewery. (#1051)
This is by far the best Kölschs i ever had. Perfectly brewery with not a single flaw. Golden colour, beautiful honied floral nose, very specific Saphir Hop notes. Perfect carbonation. Just awesome!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pale golden with medium-thin white head. The nose is bright and pleasant as it unveils its pineapple and citrus notes, but its initial intensity seems to slacken a bit over time. The flavor begins with gentle zest over pale malts, followed by bright, refreshing hops which provide balance through gentle bitterness, which also carries the dry finish fairly elegantly. The texture is gentle and spritzy. A neat and wholesome beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml Bottle, pour is clear golden, thin-to-no head. Aroma has some citrusy notes. Taste is also citric with some sweeter notes. Beer is enjoyable but a little more complexity would be good.
