3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle into pint glass, best before 10/7/2016. Pours crystal clear golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, light pear/apple, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, light pear/apple, and yeast earthiness. Moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and light pepper on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly creamy/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Very slight sulfur character is present in the aromas and flavors as well. Overall this is a very nice Kolsch style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle from Beer Cartel 290316. This light straw coloured beer is clean and crisp in the mouth but didn’t really do too much for me. Grassy straw like aroma, thin body and fluffy white head.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
