3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16.9 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a pale straw color with excellent clarity. About one finger of a creamy white head is formed with okay retention. Soft waves of lacing are left down the glass.
S: Lots of earthy, mildly sulfur-y German hops make themselves known initially. Some cereal grains and faint touches of fruit esters round out the decent aroma nicely.
T: Now this is more like it. A combination of cereal grains and noble hops open the brew nicely, with both notes bleeding into the crisp, dry finish. What makes this one rock-solid is its prevalent stone fruit esters that help (superbly) balance the adjunct sweetness and mild hops.
M: Like I said, it’s crisp and dry with very little lingering sweetness - but plenty of lingering fruit flavors. Carbonation is good without being overbearing, also. While it’s quite drinkable, I find the flavor profile too enjoyable to chug it down quick.
O: Truth be told, I really enjoy a good kolsch - and this is definitely a very good, even great, example of an (underappreciated) style. And it’s cheap, to boot!

More flavorful than a lot of Kölsch beers. Still fairly light, sweet, and refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden im Glas, wenig aromatisch in der Nase und am Gaumen. Malz und Süße dominieren, vom Hopfen ist wenig zu spüren.
Guter Durstlöscher, aber geschmacklich wenig spektakulär.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours pale yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is a normal lager, plain and boring. Tastes like a boring lager too. Not having this again.

Bottle @ home. Light amber color with an off-white head. Dry aroma of grains and cereal, red apples, bread and flowers. Crisp and dry and pleasantly bitter texture, high carbonation.Notes of cereal, malt, grass and flowers and earth, in nice balance. Hints of fruits but not as notable as in the aroma.
