2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This one is average on the nose with now distinct characters. Hits the mouth with a tremedous plain yeasty bang, but then settles down in to a very light and pleasently sweet drink. Downside as well? Too sweet at that....oh how our world is controlled by sugar. Poured from bottle in Winterberg, Germany.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very, very pale yellow. Clear liquid. Pretty big white uneven head that leaves some lacings.
A very weak smell. Some malts and white bread. Faint grassy hops, a hint of lemon and some spices.
Not much going on in the taste either, rather restrained. Nice spices, though. Some malty sweetness and white bread as well. Some grassy hops and resins. The finish is short and has a mineral-like touch to it. A refreshing yet restrained bitterness develops in the finish, though.
Light body and plenty of lively carbonation.
This is a good beer, easy to drink and refreshing. But it’s not outstanding and it’s not very exciting. Probably one for those warm summer nights.

Bottle, Rehills, Newcastle. Very initially, I though this was going to be a bit disappointing, dry and thin, but, very quickly, it develops into a citrusy and refreshingly clean, well-rounded lager. Not had much experience of this style of beer, but this is pretty good.

Very refreshing kolsch. Smell and taste are basic and nothing special but sometimes basic is good. Perfect on this hot summer day while grilling on the back porch.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very disappointing head. The aroma is slightly stale pale malts. Nice carbonation and a reasonable depth of flavour. Slightly fruity with hints of sugars and caramel. Not too keen on the finis which I found a little soapy and metallic. Quite a poor one.

Just got the beer for a bit of a thirst quencher, but thought I’d rate it for the hell of it. What can I say, straight forward Kolsch. Not much to it my opinion. Slight floral hops on the nose, which vanish on the palate. Some sweet malt, almost subtley candied on the nose, once again disapear. Slight breadiness in the flavour. Crisp carbonation. If you want a clean frosty one on a hot day, a tall blonde lets say, here’s your girl - just don’t expect any interesting conversation.
