mariuspoenari (428) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2016
Pale golden pour, semi-hazy with a white head that gives way to a very thin lacing. Smells like boiled corn and caramel. The taste is sweet, with notes of caramel, citrus and malt. Not too good.

From tap at De Cantine. Nice beer to go with the stamppot. Backlog from 2014/08/18.

rosenbergh (9510) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 13, 2015
330 ml bottle. BB 9/2016. (Albert Heijn) Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Hazy golden color with a small white head. Sea water, yeast, mild fruitiness and sweet maltiness in the aroma. The flavor is hops, mild bitterness, malt and some fruitiness. I wouldn’t recognize that this is Kölsch.

Zlotta (836) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2015
0.33 l bottle from local AH, best before July 2016. Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, foamy, slowly diminishing, white head. Grassy, slightly citrusy aroma of hay, grains and hints of lemon. Slightly bitter, grassy taste of hay, grains and hints of lemon, followed by a slightly bitter, grassy-hoppy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very classical approach to this style, not really interesting or tasty, just drinkable and refreshing. Okay.

R2k2 (422) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2015
Een troebel, lichtgeel gekleurd bier met een stevige witte kraag. Een lekker zoetig en fruitig aroma wat ik zelf nog het beste kan omschrijven als het aroma van aardbeienjam. Heel even zit dit ook in de smaak, maar deze word al snel voor bitter. Een subtiel bittere nasmaak blijft even hangen. A cloudy, slightly yellow colored beer with a firm, white layer of foam. A nice an sweet aroma which resembles the aroma of strawberry jam. This returns in the taste for a second, but it quickly becomes bitter. A subtile bitter aftertaste remains.

ciocanelu (600) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 1, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Pale, hazy color with huge head. Aroma has lemon notes, something like a witbier. Taste starts really fresh, with some dough and slightly tart, lemony notes. Carbonation is on the high side and the body is quite light. Overall it’s a decent, refreshing beer.

Geiserich (3905) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle: Sweetish, yeasty aroma, grass hops. Cloudy dark yellow color, white head. Flavor is light sweet with some hints of malt and caramel, also some acid, shy fruitiness, grass hops and light citrus peel bitterness. Not very interesting.

ThreeCats (727) - ISRAEL - JUL 11, 2015
Kind hazy with a big foamy head. There’s a ton of sediment in the bottle so once it’s emptied the beer becomes almost murky. Aroma grainy and sweet. Heavy, without the crispness you’d expect from a kolsch. Taste follows aroma, grainy and sweet, way too heavy and lacking crispness. This is not kolsch, and not good.
