2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2007 Cask at GBBF 06’: very light, a little sweetish, a little fruity, a little yeasty, a little earthy in the aroma, soft bitterness and mouthfill, not very different then an ordinary lager, an ok beer to accompany meat, too mild for my taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Draught at the brewery in Koln. Has a large bubble-less white fluffy head. Nice fruity and yeast nose. Light and crisp flavor, thinner than it should be. Flavor is mostly yeasty, and mild, with some fruity lemongrass flavors. Good light, crisp bite.

Bottle (Utobeer): Light golden colour with a small white lasting head. Mild lemon aroma, with some faint grassy hops. Refreshing light lager like flavour, but with simple grainy flavour and a hint of citrus. Actually not too bad!

[bottle at Barfuß in Marburg]
Clear straw color with fuzzy white top. Gentle aroma of German hops and crisp malt and maybe just dectable fruit. A bit weak in the flavour, but probably exactly what a Kolsch should be. Light body and medium carbonation. Quaffable.

Thanks to James for bringing this bottle back from Germany. Pours with a big white head. Crystal clear and brillant. Nose of malt, and hallertau hops, metallic, slight oxadaion. Flavor is slightly fruity and dry w/ noble hop flavor i.e. grassy and herbal. Water seemed very menerial driven. Finished dry, disaperaing from the palate quickly. Went well with my brats and mash potatoes.

(0.33 L Bottle) One of the better Koelsch beers I have tried. Aroma and appearance are not really out of the ordinary compared to similar beers. The beer has a lot more flavor compared to others like it. Tastes sweet when it hits your lips, but the aftertaste is well balanced with the hops dominating at the end.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very intresting beer. Aroma grasps you with corn to start with but as it goes on the grassy herbal hop character builds nicely. Taste is fruity with a good amount of bittering hops. One to try again foresure.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A light, yellow, golden beer, with a thickish white head. A very discreet, slightly floral, hoppy aroma with a hint of sweet malt. The taste is dry and hoppy, and again, this is followed by a slightly sweet, maltiness, similar to that of “Caramalz” for example. The finish is slightly dry and has both the hop and malt elements.

Kölsch isn´t one of my favorite styles as it always seems abit plain, and flavorless, like American lagers, bud, miller etc. but this one was pretty good for me, it had more flavor than other kölsch biers I´ve had, abit of bitterness too, I´d drink it again, nothing great, but an ok drinker.
