Nice fruity taste, again with tropical fruits, some passion fruit too now, tastes fresh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: citrus notes (pineapple, mango), honey, herbal notes.
Appearance: hazy straw color, thine white head.
Taste: medium bitterness (herbs and citrus), herbal notes, some malty backbone, zesty and easy drinking.
Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter finish.
Overall: It should be called the imperial kolsch, which means that it is really bitter, but still easy drinking and refreshing.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled two bottles side by side (different bottle design), first bottle with BB date 31.01.2014, second bottle with BB date 30.04.2015. First bottle is 330 ml, second bottle 355 ml. ABV of both is 5.5%. Bought at CITTI-Markt Flensburg on two different occasions. The colour of the beer is significantly darker in the old bottle, deep golden vs. very pale golden. The newest version is slightly hazier, with a somewhat better retention of the moderate to low white head. The aroma of the old version is slightly fruitier, both have mild spicy notes. The flavour is fresh, fruity and spicy in both versions (slightly fresher in the newest version, as expected). Reasonably hoppy finish (Saphir). Okay.

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

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.
