le kolsch sono birre complicate da capire.. al primo assaggio sembra di bere normali lager ma con maggiore attenzione (e maggiori assaggi) emerge il carattere particolare di queste birre.. non potranno mai essere paragonate a birre di alto range secondo il mio parere ma meritano di stare nel limbo fra birre di bassa classe e le birre di qualità..aroma fruttato,molto maltoso non dovuto quindi ai lieviti..palato standard e gusto maltato fruttato lievemente amaro nel finale!

patricks110 (2076) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2015
So easy to sip on. Lightly skunked aroma with cereal grains, light fruit notes, grassy and a bit spicy hops. Nice and easy going but bland otherwise. Crisp and clean finish.
