The bottle looks good. The beer in the glass also. Fruity, light - as every Kölsch, in the end little bit washy - an average Kölsch.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 Jul 2007 - Very light sweet malt aroma. Clear amber colour, good head with nice big suds lacing. Hop light sweet flavour with a hint of metallic and very light spice flavour. Well lightly balanced hoppy finish and aftertaste. A bit thin and simple for my liking but maybe that’s just the style of Kolsch.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale golden with a lacy white head. Stale griany aroma, light vegetable. Same flavour, quite dry too. This is so nondescript that it could almost pass as a pale lager.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From tap at Köln. I don’t know if it’s because I had had three other kölschs before this, but this somehow just felt rude. Harshly bitter without being hoppy, no real freshness or anything else either. I didn’t finish even the 0.2 l I was having and started looking back at Pfaffen on the otherside of the square.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 4.8%. Clear yellow colour, big white head. The flavour starts off lightly fruity and finishes clean. Low bitterness. Probably a very good example of the style.
