Bottle, Ale House bottle share, 1st September 2015. Really incredibly light, good drinkability, clean malts, it really advertises it as itself, ’A Cool As A Cucumber’ is exactly how to describe this beer. As brewers’ intentional this is perfect but I don’t really like cucumber so unfortunately this rate will be harsh. Super well made though. Sorry!

Hazy orange colour. Sourish aroma. Vert thin, watery texture. You can definitely taste the cucumber... unfortunately.

Koelschtrinker (13122) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 29, 2015
Minziger Antrunk, ansonsten mild, trocken hefig. Die Gurken sind ab dem Mittelteil tatsächlich erkennbar, was das Bier nicht unbedingt besser macht., Zum Ende trockene Gurke. Joah... 11/7/5/6//6
