2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle picked up in Karlsruhe, Germany. Pours an almost clear gold with a full white head. Has an almost IPA or American Ale aroma. Taste is very spicy for a Kölsch and too livley but a very nice beer. Palate is not offensive. Too me this is not a Kölsch by modern terms.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear pale straw with negligible white head. Clear, yeasty and hoppy aroma with fresh paperlike and vinous notes. Dry onset, light hoppy flavour, bitter finish. A very nice kölsch.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 5.5%. The aroma starts off dusty, turning a little perfumy and then to a sort of wild hop aroma. Clear yellow colour. Good stable chalk white head. The flavour is malty and slightly sweet with a spicy hop note, later a little fruitiness. The mouthfeel seems a little thin, but it is not a real problem. Gut.

Nice beer but not really a special one. Good hoppy taste, but nearly no body. But i think that is how this rheinisch bitter has to taste it. Defoinetly a nice and easy beer for everyone who likes hoppy taste.

This is areally good beer. The dryhopping with Germam aroma hops (Saphir) is unheard of. Sadly they market this as a noble beer. 3,50€ in supermarket 1 hour from where it was brewed is way too much. This way German will not be convinced of new innovative beer styles and stick to their old habbits and who can blame them whenyou can find a half liter of Andechser Doppelbock right next to it for just 1,05€.
