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.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2016 Hazy yellow color with no head. Aroma of caramel, yeasts, fruity, buttery. Taste id similar. Finish has quite some bitter hops. Smooth and refreshing. Not bad.
Update: From the tap at the brewpub. Very hazy orange-yellow color with white head. Aroma is citrus fruity, yeasty. Taste is light, citrus fruity, with a bready body. Bitter finish. Nice!

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.

Bottle to pilsner glass. Cloudy deep yellow with a huge everlasting pillowy head. Lots of sediment at the top of the bottle, which is a new one for me. Clean crisp and bready. Classic hops in the middle and a bitter dry finish that makes me want another sip immediately.

330ml bottle fron Sr. Lúpulo, Gijón. 31-10-2014.
In short: off flavoured beer.
Pours some hazy golden with little white head. Short head retention, some lacing. Skunky nose, some citrusy aromas. Light body, average to high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is weird, starts citrusy, herbal, and then develops a harsh unpleasant sensation by the end and aftertaste. Maybe some kind of problem occurred with this batch or bottle.
