(Draugth 20 cl at Gaffel Haus, Köln)
Clear light golden color, white non’lasting head. Malty scent, real clear and dominating. Mix of thin and full body, how strange that might sound (and feel). Medium high bitterness. Malty taste and aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2007 Bottle on 10/21/06. Pours a light yellow with a large. surprisingly sustained, rocky white head and nice lacing. Very light aromas of floral hops, hay, but a faint soapiness as well. Lively effervescence punctuates a light body with a clean mouthfeel. Flavor is very lightly malty sweet and gently bitter. Refreshing, but just a bit off in all respects. I think this was old, and perhaps a bit oxidized. I’d like to try a fresh one in Germany.
Re-rated 05/22/07. This one seems fresher thatn the one I had several monts ago. The soapiness in the aroma isn’t there, and the finish is clean, lightly bitter, and quite refreshing. No off flavors or aromas. This is more like what I would expect.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light golden kolsch with a creamy white head. A sweet malt with notes of honey in aroma. In mouth, a nicely hopped Kolsch, with some overbearing sweetness, chalky mineral notes, much less dry than other kolsch I tried. However, this was pleasant and quaffable.

Very pale, white head. Soft aroma of yeast, citrus and sweet bread. Fairly dry mouthful, with citrus, flowery hops and some soft nuts. As light as it feels, there is some decent complexity. the finish is delicate and crisp. So easy.

Köln, sipped by the Dom while watching the hour strike 21:00. Total mystery to me why this beer style is a big deal. Acceptable yet over-cooked macro-like beer.
