2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I don’t demand a lot out of Kolsch: crisp palate, nice light and lean malt body, maybe a bit of grassy quality. This doesn’t quite reach all those bars, having some slightly off bitterness in the finish and a malt profile that’s a bit too sweet. Still, fine enough.
