On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is light straw, sweet grass. Taste is the same. Crisp and refreshing with that grassy note. A German Lawnmower beer.

Heldere gouden kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt mout, hop, citrus. Smaakt pilsner, hoppig. Aardig.

Had this at Fruh am dom in Cologne in their .21 L cylindrical glasses. Straw yellow with stark white head. Very crisp and refreshing with a bit of bitterness at the end to balance out. Drinkable and good- this coming from someone who is not a big fan of the style.

Jasnozłote, klarowne piwo o średnio obfitej pianie, która szybko redukuje się do zera. Aromat jak piwa sprzed lat, może niezbyt intensywny, ale przyjemny słodowy z lekką nutą chmielową. W smaku lekko wodniste, słodowo-chmielowe. Goryczka niska w stronę średniej, ziołowa. Ogólnie jest to styl do którego mam ogromny sentyment ze względu na Cieszyńskiego Grand Chempiona od którego, wtedy jeszcze nieświadomie rozpocząłem przygodę z czymś innym niż jasne pełne i o ile dobrze pamiętam tamten kolsch był dużo lepszy od obecnie degustowanego, ale i to piwo daje rade, smakuje i pachnie jak pierwsze piwa, które w życiu piłem w latach dziewięćdziesiątych.

Blassgelb, lasch im Geschmack, gleicht eher einer Bierschorle. Muss man nicht haben.
