Bottle. Poured a pristinely clear golden with a white lacing head. A subtle malted barley aroma. A touch of hops upfront that balances well with a smooth malt body that finishes clean and crisp. A nice quaffer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2007 Cask at GBBF 06’: very light, a little sweetish, a little fruity, a little yeasty, a little earthy in the aroma, soft bitterness and mouthfill, not very different then an ordinary lager, an ok beer to accompany meat, too mild for my taste.

Bottle (Utobeer): Light golden colour with a small white lasting head. Mild lemon aroma, with some faint grassy hops. Refreshing light lager like flavour, but with simple grainy flavour and a hint of citrus. Actually not too bad!

[bottle at Barfuß in Marburg]
Clear straw color with fuzzy white top. Gentle aroma of German hops and crisp malt and maybe just dectable fruit. A bit weak in the flavour, but probably exactly what a Kolsch should be. Light body and medium carbonation. Quaffable.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to James for bringing this bottle back from Germany. Pours with a big white head. Crystal clear and brillant. Nose of malt, and hallertau hops, metallic, slight oxadaion. Flavor is slightly fruity and dry w/ noble hop flavor i.e. grassy and herbal. Water seemed very menerial driven. Finished dry, disaperaing from the palate quickly. Went well with my brats and mash potatoes.
