1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle. Now sold as a "Kolsch style premium ale". ABV 4.6%. Golden yellow appearance with minimal white head. Nose and taste is very sweet grainy honey malts and little else (perhaps a trace of citrus hops). Unpleasant cloying syrupy finish. Watery flat mouthfeel and light body. Certainly nothing like an authentic Kolsch.

Clear golden color, white head. Sweet, malty, sugary, some vegetable taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Sugary aftertaste. Sweet, malty, some vegetable scent.
Not very nice at all.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured a clear golden yellow colour with no head and virtually no carbonation (ie. it was flat). Aroma strongly of malt. Taste of sour malt but no hops and no bitterness – very bland. Light body, bordering on watery. Long sour, stale finish. Pale larger-like, and poor at that.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Says Kolsch on the label. Slightly fruity, lager-like. Stale aftertaste. Poor. Struggled to finish one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear light golden color with a small head that fades to very little lacing. Aroma of mild citrus and some malt sweetness and bit of grain. Taste is of citrus up front with some mild malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Light body, crisp, smooth and refreshing. Decent beer for a hot summer day.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale pour, almost non existent head. Grassy, malty aroma, with an unpleasant note to it. Heavily carbonated, some malt and fairly sweet, but mostly pretty bland and watery.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks avrashi. Clear golden with a bit of white foam. Weak grainy aroma with a bit of malt, vegetal notes and a hint of hops. Weak flavor with faint bready malt, vegetables hints, sugary candy and a finish that’s a tiny bit drier. Really thin body. A very light and watery beer.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a 330ml bottle on 26/3/2012. Pours a clear light golden with almost no head. Has a very faint smell of grain and urine. Clean and inoffensive in the mouth, with a the tiniest hint of citrus hops. Does not look, smell or taste like an ale - more like a fairly average premium pale lager.
