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!

Não é uma cerveja ruim mas esperava mais por ser Alemã e uma das mais antigas cervejarias de Colônia. Amargor e leve.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a one finger cap so plush & so white that it squeaks like cheese curds from Quebec. A really decent Kolsch -- a style I’m starting to dig for hot days or end of session crunching. It’s crisp, with a delicate balance that local brewers have so much trouble mastering. On the down side, I’d opt for a drier approach & there’s a vague metallic presence that makes me wish I could get this fresh. Regardless, it’s a decent brew & better than some of the weaker reviews below mine (more evidence of the anti-German ratebeer bias? Maybe).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
DATE REVIEWED: August 30, 2014... GLASSWARE: Paulaner pokal... OCCASION: college football begins in earnest....with PSU’s last second win in Ireland!... APPEARANCE: pale, straw-colored body that actively bubbles; sudsy white head simmers but holds at a half-finger; spotty clouds of lacing... AROMA: soft, fruity esters ease the nostrils; some apple, pear and floral scents all suggest a lightly hopped brew.. PALATE: wondrously soft (!), reasonably effervescent mouthfeel; leaves a slightly palatable aftertaste of malt; mega-drinkable... TASTE: slight biscuit is earliest impression; next up, bubblegum and aromatic lilac or currants; biscuit becomes more prominent as the glass drains ...OVERALL: refreshment is the key word here,, as this kolsch slams like a fruity pilsner, with enough bitterness to suggest hopping and enough weight to suggest malt...a nice pairing with a late summer night and its sweltering humidity--a wonderful combination of drinkability and complexity...

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear pale light gold colour. Hay and noble hops aroma with some corn and grass. I find the palate a little bit fruity but sports a fast flavour profile and finishes dry. Other than that, meh, just like the rest of em, totallly forgetful brew.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of malt, grains, light hop. Flavour is malty and grainy with a light bitter finish. Average Kolsch, meaning rather dull for me personally.
