From a 330 ml bottle. Pale-golden with a medium rather unstable head. smells really malty and sweet. tastes evewn more sweet and malty. reminded me on a alcohol-free beer. almost no bitterness with perfume-like hops. sticky and average carbonization.

Világos szalmasárga színe van, ami tükrösen tiszta és átlátszó. Habja kis méretű, krémes és elég kitartó. Illata édeskés, malátás és enyhén vizes szalmás. Íze is egy hatalmas adag malátával kezdődik, ami kissé édeskés és csipetnyit élesztős, aztán csatlakozik a komló is, ami szépen kiegyensúlyozza a maga kesernyésségével és egy kis gyümölcsösséggel. Vékony teste van és nem túl szénsavas. Utóíze keserédes, és a legvége kiszárítja a szánkat. Könnyen csúszó sör, amit pillanatok alatt ellehet pusztítani és igen frissítő.

Pale clear gold, medium white head that laces the top third of the thin kolsch glass. Pleasantly fruity, nice cereal malt structure, light bitterness, dry finish.

jolo (927) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle 50cl (Systembolaget). A light golden colour with a white head. An aroma of malt and hops. The taste is light seet and light sour. A thin body, oily to watery texture, soft carbonation and a dry light bitter finish.

77ships (5091) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2011
bottle@home: light yellow, golden color with a small white head, sweet grains, tastes of adjuncts to me, low quality bitter hop taste, minor citrus, lots of grass, not skunky but skunk-like flavors, crisp finish, not only boring but also not very good

Bierexperte (10) - Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2011
Helles und leichtes Kölsch mit einem eher etwas zu flachem Geschmack. Schmeckt im Schatten des Kölner Doms aber trotzdem richtig gut.

Bottle. Very pale gold tiny white head. Very thin bodied, light malt with a tiny hop edge. Very plain and boring beer.
