3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml. bottle. Shared with Gabe. Pours a medium, poorly retained, white head, over a clear, yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is light cereal malts, light pale fruits, pear, apple, hints of herbal hops......taste is slightly sweet initially, with hints of pear, apple, finishing dry, with a mild noble hop bitterness.......mouth feel, light of medium body, high carbonation. This meets this light and delicate style quite nicely. It is quenching and refreshing. BJCP 7/3/15/4/8

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - 500ml. Pale blond body with heavy carbonation and a fading white bubbly head. Fait malty/hoppy aroma with bready and herbal hints. Its bland, light malty/hoppy taste carries some herbal notes. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Boring.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Out of a bottle while hanging out in Cologne. Pours clear golden with nearly no head. Aroma of hay, light pale malt sweetness, unpleasant Kolsch aroma. Flavor follows the aroma with a slightly dirty finish, though I found it a bit cleaner than the Paffgen I had earlier today. Light bodied of course, goes down easy enough, medium carbonation. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 2-27-13-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a yellow amber colored brew with a one finger white head. The head faded relatively quickly to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass
Smell- The nose was a mix of some sweet fruit aromas of tangerine with a grainy and bready smell.
Taste – The taste started out with a more crisp and bready taste up front with hints of fruit and caramel sweetness which get more potent more toward the middle of the taste. Along the same time the sweetness maximizes some light bitterness of a grassy and herbal nature comes to the tongue. The sweet fades more toward the end of the taste leaving a crisp and grainy flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer was on the thinner to average side with a carbonation level that was fairly average. Both were quite appropriate for the style and keeping with the crisp nature of the taste.
Overall – A quite easy drinking Kolsh with a nice crisp finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of the classic Kölsch beers, with finely structured, creamy, stable foam and pale straw blonde colour. Soft malty aroma with spicy and flowery accents, malt sweetness in the mouth, more so than in many other Kölsch beers which also use wheat malt (not this one), drying and ending in a herbally hoppy, elegantly bitterish finish. Kölsch is all about subtlety and this one surely has what it takes to be a fine example of its style.
