Jonb5 (466) - 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.

Sehr süffig, leichte Hopfennote. Wenig Malz, sehr wässrig. Bittere gleich null. Insgesamt schwach.

En fin Kølsch. Den har noter af brød og noter af peber i eftersmagen. En speciel type øl, men rigtig god godt kold.

tightslice (700) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 15, 2016
On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is light straw, sweet grass. Taste is the same. Crisp and refreshing with that grassy note. A German Lawnmower beer.

Bosbouw (2328) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2015
Heldere gouden kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt mout, hop, citrus. Smaakt pilsner, hoppig. Aardig.

Had this at Fruh am dom in Cologne in their .21 L cylindrical glasses. Straw yellow with stark white head. Very crisp and refreshing with a bit of bitterness at the end to balance out. Drinkable and good- this coming from someone who is not a big fan of the style.
