minimal aroma, pours fizzy and yellow. Head quickly dissapears and no lacing. Crisp clean taste with just a hint of sweetness. Very dry finish with almost no aftertaste.

Bottle. Average fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Clear sparkling body with a pale yellow color. Aroma was hay, straw, caramel, grain and citrus. Light bodied with an average carbonation. Flavor was light bitter with some sweet grain. Light dry and bitter finish with a light undertone of sweetness. My first Kölsch, and the last style I was missing out of the now 71 different styles of beer registered here on RB.

Tap. Pours really golden w/ big head. Taste is sort of bitter, kind of a strange bitter aftertaste but pretty good if cold.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle: Sparkling clear pour with lots of spritzy carbonation and a receding ivory head. Light aroma is peach esthers and some straw. Body follows suit, with a broaded spectrum of esthery notes - peach and baked apple. Herbal hops and subtle caramel malts add some depth. This is a great example of a very delicate style.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled. Shining, clear and discreetly bubbly yellow color. Decidedly modest scent, nearly absent with light notes of malt and dried grassy. Little pungent taste and decidedly sweetish. Little perceivable alcohol; soft and mellow body.
Thanks to mabjork for this beer.

Had this on the market square in Cologne served in a larger Klosch glass. Not as crisp as other examples I had that day. Page 179 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 400 out 500 Classic Brews to go.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright gold spritzy pour. Delicately barrelly and woodily vinous in the snout. Lovely rounded wheaty-bready afters going on and on through the nose. A tang of metal. A trace of hoppy Pilsener bitterness. Whisper it quietly (in Dusseldorf), but this is quality stuff.
