Bottle bought in Germany. Pale yellow. Limited aroma and taste. Rather boring, but okay a hot day.

Pours clean straw, with lively carbonation. Pitiful white ringed head. Lager/pilsner doppelganger. Aroma is sweet malt, yeast, grass and hay. Light and sweet-pilsner like. Taste is predominatly sweet malt. Some grain featuring. Sweet rather than bitter finish. I detest that spiky pilsner bitterness, and this is a refreshing alternative to that. Still, its so light and anemic, it fails to be anything more than an insipid refreshment.

Clear pale golden with white head. Smell is sweet malt and some yeast. Taste is clean with light citric notes but mainly good yeast. Fresh.

Delad flaska med MrHult, tackar! Vacker gyllene klar vätska med ett mindre vitt skum. Bra doft av brödig malt. Rund och len i smaken, bra balans. En lätt sträv munkänsla på ett bra sätt. En god öl helt enkelt! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (5557) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 500 ml bottle Pours a sparkling light-medium with an initial bubbly white head that settles and fades. Aroma has some grassy notes, a hint of spiciness. Flavor is crisp and clean with some light saffron-like spice, some underlying buttery notes and a hint of yeast. Mouthfeel has just the rigth amount of spritziness. Not great any in one particular area, but overall an excellent Kölsch

bergstaden (1256) - Røros, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2014
Pale golden with a white head - Some malts in the aroma - Some malts in the body with a low bitterness - The malts goes into the finish - This was quite ok

Flaska från Systembolaget. Klar guldfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Kan inte sätta fingret på vad det smakar mer än riktigt god öl. Som en standard eurolager fast godare.
