3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of light sweet honey with a touch of grain. It pours a transparent dull gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a soapy film. There is some sporadic dotted lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with with a quick dose of sweet grain. The finish has light-moderate grass/straw with faint mineral notes. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice refreshing Kolsch.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Probably the best-known Kölsch and a reference for its style. Stable, snow white head, pale golden blonde colour, clear. Gentle grassy hops and sweetish malts in the nose, taste rather neutral at first, light and soft pale maltiness, ever so slight sourish touch, crisp and clean, ending in a dry, pretty long, herbal hop bitterness. Subtle and near lager-like as any good Kölsch should be.

Very nice, light, pilsener like beer. It’s very refrehing due to a malty flavour and a slightly hopped finish.

Poured on the outdoor tables at the Alter Markt. Puppies clear follow with slight white foam head that persists. Mild yeast and Pilsner nose that yields to a slightly sweet palate. Carbonic aftertaste that scrubs the palate.

Aroma of light malt. Bready biscuity malt flavor. Woody vegetable notes in the finish. Herbal bitter finish. Okay. Sweeter than expected.
