Bottle. I may be being harsh to this beer. I think I’m really getting over all forms of lager. In any case, it’s refreshing and has a bit of a fruity hop coming through, but over all too fizzy and too bland for me.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2005
Daught at Fruh am Dom, Cologne, 200 ml, Filtered. Pale gold with huge head. The most bitter of the Kolsch’ tried during the weekend. My friends favourite, but I found it just a little underflavoured. The sharp bitterness goes right to the finish which keeps the palate fresh. Not bad.

Pleasant grainy cereal malt flavour with light fruitiness. Clear golden body is topped by a low cover of fine-bubbled white head. Cereal malts and fresh leafy hop flavours with mild finishing bitterness. Light refreshing body with moderately lively carbonation. Draft at GBBF 2005.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Pilsener golden with a frothy, white head. Malty, lightly sweet body with a limited bitterness. Quaffable all right but as with most Kölsches it’s hard to tell it from other mild pilseners. 160800

Yellow, ok head. Hops, hay and some spices in aroma. Flavor brings hops, grass and some vegetables. Very grassy and hoppy finish.
