3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells authoritarian yet balanced of over-ripened fruits; the taste contains multiple notes of pilsner bitterness as well as sour and dry elements. It is more complex than a pilsner, but not necessarily to its favour.

Bottle purchased from a small grocery in Berlin. Very typical Kolsch: strong and rich flavor, relatively subdued. Not much stands out though. Good balance of hops and malt. Moderate bitterness. Not particularly outstanding in any way, but very pleasant and I’d gladly drink again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
It is a pleasure to have a genuine Cologne-brewed Kolsch on tap in Berlin served in authentic stange glassware. Appears bright golden with a small white head that laces nicely. Delicate fruity aromas with pear, lychee, citrus and grains reflected on the tongue with a lovely soft velvety palate and mild dry hoppy finish. Medium-light bodied with an oily texture and light carbonation. Gorgeous. Very sessionable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very clear golden, with not a good head retention, very subtle grainy aroma and a little bit of sulfur. Grainy and fruity but subtle in flavor, medium bitterness, It has a medium body. I like the balance in this beer, it tastes almost like a good pils but with a more rounded ale flavor.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear honey colour, with a thin wispy head. Aroma notes include apple, pear, dusty, and some tangy esters. Tasting notes include lots of pear, apple, and apricot. Light malts, and a very slight hop presence rounds out this light creamy brew. Very nice beer, and highly drinkable! I can imagine drinking this on some patio in Germany!
