3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Somewhat unique Kölsch type beer that sure goes down well. Kölsch is somewhat monotonous in taste, yet as living in Munich I rarely get to drink it, it is very good. This is a great representative of Kölsch, though it is a craft beer.

No one really cares about contract-brewing and all that when it comes to German beers. They care about the styles, and whether they’re authentic. If they’re brewed in Germany, it doesn’t matter.
