I may be biased having tried these at the brewery in Cologne, but I really enjoyed this refreshing beer in the cute little glasses.

Enjoyed this with dinner in Cologne - and then I enjoyed a few more...until I finally put the coaster on top of the glass. A solid german beer - nice white head.

Although an enjoyable beer each time I’ve had it, it is dificult to rate objectively, because it has tasted very different to me each time I’ve had it: at the brew pub, in other pubs around Koln, and then from the bottle. Not a great beer with food, best drunk alone.

A pretty boring beer. Light in colour, with a white head. Taste like a pilsner.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Früh Am Dom. Pours a clear straw color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Patchwork lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt and hops. Light body with flavors of sweet malt, mild hops and ripe fruit. The finish is malty and sweet. Decent Kölsch overall.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Rewe. Straw yellow body barely avoids being too pale. Rocky, diminishing white head with little lacing. Grassy and floral noble hops dominate the nose. Light malty sweetness underneath. Grainy, cheerio-s like malt flavor is almost a little too much. Light fruity esters (pear) and low-level hop flavors matching the aroma. Mouthfeel is pretty balanced with regard to BU:GU. Slightly minerally finish. Moderate carbonation. Decent but not great Kölsch.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear yellow color. Tiny head tha disappears. Sweet malty, earthy, a slight touch of bitterness in the finish. Rather thin and watery. Refreshing and good for food but nothing special.

Kolsch is just not my thing, Whilst this beer was fresh it had little by way of real flavour besides a dry bitterness...
