Clear golden yellow with little head. Aroma is citric with malty tones. Taste has some tones of different minerals - some chalk and quite sweet.

Looks for all the world like a macro – clear gold amber and zero depth to the head. Nose is hard to place, the best I can do is some hard mineral-like notes that one may see in a steely dry Riesling. Not unpleasant. More minerals on the palate and the flavour weight fills out nicely with a liqueured note and some controlled malt sweetness. Again the resemblance to Riesling is more than passing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Old Munich, Bradenton, FL. Poured clear amber color with an average fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate grassy hopt aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short duration. I would recommend this to a freind who wants a soft beer.

At the brewpub. Exceptionally clear, light gold in color. Aroma somewhat sweet with spicy undertones and flowery hop aroma, maltiness reminescent of mash. Malty sweet flavor with spicy finish and lingering malt, but clean. Effervescent and lively with a dry finish. Very nice example of a Kolsch

Clear, light yellow body firm white head.
Light malt and a bit of hops in the aroma.
The subtle flavors are oh so light with just a touch of dryness in the finish.

Bottled. Pale golden in colour. It has a hoppy aroma, somewhat skunky I´d say. The flavour is somewhat bitter, malty.. There is a dry aftertaste as well.

Good beer. Like nearly all "Kölsch"-beers a litle too thin. Really tasty. The most bitter "Kölsch"- beer avalible. Best in appearance.

(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.
