bobinlondon (1260) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2012
Live rating: Gravity from wooden cask at Fruh am Dom in Koln. Clear yellow gold with a short lived fluffy white head. Smooth carbonation but thin palate. Faint ale fruitiness but slight (cheap lager like) metalic edge. The hops are subdued but fresh. It’s been over 13 years since I last drank in this place and the aptnosphere is still magic. It’s a shame I can’t say the same about their beer. Kolsch is pleasant enough but the I would use the term ’catagory’ rather than ’style’ for this most increasingly uniform family of beers. The best thing about drinking in Koln is that you are only a short train ride away from the Alt biers of Dusseldorf - and that’s where I’m heading next!

edpeg (856) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2012
Pours pale golden yellow clear with decent , long lasting head. Aromas malty, paper and hops. Palate is thin watery, with malts , driness and herbs with smooth carbonation Body is medium thin and little sticky. After taste is rather shrot with dry vague hops in the finish. Quite decent and balanced Kölsch with some herby notes.

Pours a yellow colour with a tiny white head. Aroma is sweet malt with grass with hints of hops. Taste is grassy with some light fruits leading to a light hoppy finish. Quaffable but not a stand out.

I may be biased having tried these at the brewery in Cologne, but I really enjoyed this refreshing beer in the cute little glasses.

Enjoyed this with dinner in Cologne - and then I enjoyed a few more...until I finally put the coaster on top of the glass. A solid german beer - nice white head.

Although an enjoyable beer each time I’ve had it, it is dificult to rate objectively, because it has tasted very different to me each time I’ve had it: at the brew pub, in other pubs around Koln, and then from the bottle. Not a great beer with food, best drunk alone.
