3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
200 ml. draft @ Dom im Stapelhaus. Clear golden with a creamy head, standard look. Nose is pretty grainy mixed with sweet hay, lightly metallic & faint mushroom. Taste is sweetish, hay, sweet yeast, very faintly musty grainy with a light metal edge almost slightly in an industrial pilsner way (something which I didn’t find in neither the Sion or Peters Kölsch’s I tried before this one. This quality made me like this one less whilst the others liked this one more precisely because of this quality. Def. grainier mouthfeel than the two before but still pretty drinkable, overall still pretty enjoyable. Still pretty enjoyable stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle pours with a clear gold body supporting a white head. The aroma offers up floral and lime like hop notes with a bit of sweet slightly grainy malts in the background. The taste has a nice hoppy bite of both flavor and mildly bitter hops. The hops are similar to what was found in the nose with sort of a lime and floral hop blend with a bit of minerals and sweet maltiness coming to the surface about midway. The hops surge some into the finish. Pretty nice but misses the fresh crisp snappiness I enjoy in this style.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pretty disappointing Kolsch. Aroma is not appetizing what so ever. Really faint and light Kolsch flavor. Almost totally devoid of malty flavor. While the palate retains a nice mixture of cereal and toast it seems to disappear an instant later. Try Gaffel, Gilden, or even Fruh before this one.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale gold with a white, bubbly head. Aroma is of cooked and light grain, some sulfur, some fruit and yeast. Taste is light on both malt and hops. Not unpleasant, certainly balanced, but doesn’t have the same effect that some of the other Kölsch do.
