4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Big fruity grain aromas. Deep hazy orange with tan lasting head. Super smooth grain grows and then rinses away very refreshingly

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Aroma of sweet malt. Hazy medium amber color, off-white head that sinks to a full cover, sheets of lace. Taste is semi-sweet malt that moves through light fizz to a slightly bitter swallow, then gradually back to sweet before mild hops interrupt at the very end. Doesn’t much resemble a Kolsch, and not especially well-balanced, but it is interesting. Probably not a re-do here.

Extra lemony hay nose. Opaque amber, medium head. Malt, lemon, orange, lightly grassy finish. Full body, soft carbonation. Very refreshing and surprisingly fruity, unusually so for the style.

Bottle. Freigeist Ottekolong version of this beer. Golden, slightly hazy, with a large three to four finger and lots of lace. Aroma is bread, grains. Taste is a well balanced flavor with notes of grains a tad tangy up front and a clean finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
