Jonb5 (340) - Greater London, - FEB 11, 2013
Half litre bottle, poured into a pint glass. Pale colour, one finger head which was quick to disappear, kept some lacing, clear. Aroma was Chardonay and vanilla. Tasted cranberry, Chardonay, vanilla and yeast. Finish was delayed and wheaty. Crisp texture, well carbonated which gave it a slightly coarse edge. Enjoyable beer, made me want to explore the style further, bit of a palate changer.

PorterPounder (5339) - 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 (1168) - 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

MrHult (154) - SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2014
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.

ninecats (101) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2014
Crystal clear yellow with a massive, slightly lacing, white foam. Aroma is discreet, some grass, pale malt and citrus. Taste is white bread, european bitter hops, citrus and grass. Quite bigger body than expected, medium plus, average to agressive carbo, dry and smooth texture. Quite good, a small beer but with some characteristics that distinguishes it from a bland lager.

Buczer (154) - Pabianice, POLAND - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle, pours pale golden, clear with immediately vanishing head. Aroma is bready with hint of herbal notes. Taste is malty, grainy, minimal bitterness. Soft carbonation and light to medium body makes it quite drinkable.

wihlan (203) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2014
Flaska från systemet - extremt ljus, kristallklar. Doftar lite unket tydlig men behaglig beska. Ljus lager... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aurelius (4027) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Soft, sweetish malt aroma. Snowy head, clear bright, light blonde. Solid bottle and label. Light bittering, buttery mouthfeel. Malt gets a bit clingy over time. Medium duration finish - German hops come through. Decent enough on a 100º day in Florida. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Pours light golden colour - fairly weak aroma and head but a nice fresh malty taste and refreshing feel.

nimbleprop (4531) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 30, 2014
50cl pour at Dacha Beer Garden in DC. Pours a clear gold with some white head that faded quick. Nose has sugar, malt, some grass, some lemon, some straw. Flavor has some malt, some cracker, metal too, a little perfume. Watery finish.
