ALLOVATE (2556) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2007
Draught @ Fan Fest Köln, Köln, Germany, during World Cup madness.
Plastic cup made it lose any authenticity it may have retained had I tried it in a Bräuhaus. Looked a pale, orange-tinged gold through the frosted plastic. Head rose off the pour, died off once I got it in my hands, though it left some legs. Not much aroma, crowd was mad as Portugal was now playing France. A little sweet malt, some bitter hops are evident. In the mouth it tickles and bounces. The body is very light, but the finish is a little harsh and fizzy. Sweet malt, apple juice, a metallic tinge in back and held in the mouth after the swallow. A little raw hops, flowery and dusty in back also that give it a degree of bitterness. Not much length due to the fizzy peak. Aided my Bratwurst und brötchen atleast. Not bad, quite refreshing but not altogether integrated flavour-wise.

Bottle Clear, blond body. Rocky, white head. Magnificent head. Nice aroma of hops. Lightly bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Quite good balance. Nice kölsch.

Gilden, while one of the oldest Kolsch’s, does not have the fresh crisp taste that it should.

fonefan (38288) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle. Golden colour and a decent head. Hop, toast and flowery in aroma. Has a bitter heavily hopped flavour. Very dry and cardboard like. Not the best Kolsch I have tasted.
