bread, cereal, herbs, earthy, leaves, golden, clear, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, bitter, long finish Light gold with thin white head. Earthy/herbal aromas with bread. An interesting dry mouthfeel accompanies the subtle bitterness - both soon disappear for a clean finish. Thin bodied with an average carbonation made it easy drinking.

Taste is crisp, clean balanced, with notes of crackers. Grainy yet clean nose. Bright gold and crystal clear with a white head of delicate lace on glass. Medium lite body. Kolsch as it should be.

Dourada clara, brilhante e límpida, diferentes das outras do estilo (muitas ficam límpidas totalmente) mantém um liberação do CO2 residual. Espuma mais generosa e de curta duração que se esvai até uma nata uniforme que mantém a cerveja "selada". Creme de baixa densidade e nem chega a "sujar o copo". Aroma leves como o estilo, com pão e lúpulo de gramínea. Refrescante, balanceada, malte é ótima atenuação com quase nenhum dulçor que faz transparecer uma leve sensação de sexor. No final um amargo média e agradável. Não desmontar o frescor das concorrentes, tem notas mais arredondadas. Ótima referencia do estilo.

Verfrissend heel licht citrus tintje. Mooi in balans tussen frisheid drinkbaarheid en carbonatie. Ook een bepaalde romigheid. Heerlijk drinkbaar.

BeErikS (40) - TAIWAN - MAR 3, 2016
Pours crystal clear golden with a moderate bubbly head that quickly dissipates to a white ring and thin white film that stays until the end. Sweet bready malt dominates the nose with a hint of herbal and floral hops in the background. Pleasantly sweet and crisp, very well balanced. Almost has a candy or bubble gum sweetness but in no way is it cloying as the overall impression is light and crisp with a fairly dry and bitter finish. Carbonation is moderate to moderately high. Very drinkable session beer.

nybol (1291) - DENMARK - JAN 31, 2016
En fin Kølsch. Den har noter af brød og noter af peber i eftersmagen. En speciel type øl, men rigtig god godt kold.
