Ritzn (529) - Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2016
Hazy yellow with medium white head. Aroma is peach citrus, wheat, flour. Taste is fruity sour and fruity sweet with some chocolate coming through. Finish is tart fruityness. Very nice small bubbled mouthfeel. Easy to drink while tickling a little. Full bodied. This one did everything right!

Hazy and slightly orangish in color. It’s like a kölsch, but with slightly more hops and maltiness.

ALIBALI (787) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2016
Optisch eine angenehme Alternative zum wasserklaren Durchschnittskölsch, fast ein wenig naturtüber Apfelsaft. In der Nase nicht besonders auffällig, vielleicht ein bisschen hefig und traubig. Der Trunk dann abwechslungsreich, erst bitter frisch dann fruchtig mit einer dezenten Hefe im Mundgefühl. Klasse und ein echter Stilkracher. 0,2/2 Euro, vom Fass direkt in der BRAUSTELLE.

Martinus (4538) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2016
Hazy pale orange golden colour, white head. Light hoppy, light yeasty aroma, malts. Quite bitter hoppy flavour, especially for a Koelsch, fruity hop notes. Hoppy finish, sweet malts. Nice.

Overall it was pretty flat. Worth trying but I don’t think I would seek it out again.

impuritylaw (64) - Freibierg, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2015
Bottle bbe 31.12.15. Strawy golden colour (filtered? no particulate material at all) with a nice white head. Aroma of grass, light malts and some citrus. Taste is different to the other Kölsch beers you get in Cologne: citrus fruit and more than usual hoppy bitterness, well balanced with a nice light malt/caramelly body. Pretty good Kölsch, should have discovered it some years earlier.
