3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle pours a hazy yellow gold color with a finger of white head that retains well but only leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy and grainy with some light fruits. Taste is a grassy and spicy hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, has a little more taste and body than a typical kolsch. Nice.

The color is dirty cloudy yellow with solid foam layer. The smell has some malty cereals. Taste is bitter in the finish and has a slight sweetish cereals-cookie note. Quite refreshing though. Slightly different than other kölschs, but I like it more.

Woody, herbal, sweet grain nose. Flavor is same plus lemon marmalade, spicy hops on the finish, mild bitterness, light butter feelz. Interesting, slightly sloppy take on kolsch.

On tap. Pours a cloudy old with a white head and some lacing. The aroma and taste are both biscuit and malt, with a mostly dry finish and some slight spiciness over a light body.

50cl bottle from Parker Pie, "Freigeist Ottekolong" label. Pours a slightly unclear light golden with a small cap that leaves some lacing. Nose is of cereals, yeast and some light sulfur. Taste is of cereals, a little husky and pretty much completely dry. Moderately high bitterness. Light peppery ending to it. Some bready impressions. Body is light to medium, carbonation high and mouthfeel is a little creamy or maybe oily. Overall a tasty beer, can’t say I was really blown away by it though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle as Freigeist. Unfiltered grey-orange body. Semi-buttery, reminds me of US Kolsch. Bright, but the butter tones are unacceptable to me. Doesn’t really capture the style. Neutered hospital Kolsch. The lack of filtration gives it some body. Overall not that impressive of an offering.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
lightly cloudy gold-orange with 1-inch egg-shell head. Aroma is sweet corn grain, some sweet grass/hay, and a bit of light brushy growth. Touch of clean caramel sugar in there. Body is light-medium-light watery, slightly starchy. soft, light, medium-coarse carbonation with a medium-soft burn. Flavor is dried grass, slightly metallic, touch of short-lived bitterness in the finish, bit of dried (none-sweet) grain. Not a whole lot else. Overall, an excellent smelling Kolsch with an OK flavor and lacking body.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 Ein "anderes" Kölsch. Dadurch dass es ungefiltert ist kommt ein hefigerer Geschmack durch als bei anderem Kölsch. Schmeckt lecker, jedoch ein wenig ungewöhlich für einen "klassischen" Kölschtrinker wie mich.
