Grumbo (1518) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2016
From tap at Kunibert der Fiese in Cologne. Poured a clear but slightly dull pale gold with a short lasting white head. Aroma of sweet maize and grass. Quite high sweetness, little by way of bitterness. Light body, slight sticky texture, high carbonation. First beer on this, a 5 day visit to Cologne - an OK starter...

Gravicask (Gilden im Zims) (5:3:5+:4:12=2.9+)
Gold, with a large persistent frothy head. Gentle sweetish lagery aroma. Head itself tastes very good, very fruity and has nice bitterness. The liquid is just that diluted with lots of water. Soft palate. Fruity and pale malts. Very refreshing and drinkable - we even drank 2.

Leider eines der Kölschbiere, die man schnell wieder vergisst. Durchschnittlich, nicht schlecht.

aleigator (809) - GERMANY - OCT 24, 2015
Drank from bottle. Smells of young, herb infused hay, tied together by wheat and white bread malts, with a toffee note on top. Has a lively carbonation, adding to the beers refreshing appearance while preventing it from becoming too watery, and keeping it easy drinkable, which is also true, due to its light body. Tastes of copper infused bready malts, together with a sweet toffee accent, coated up by hay. Its bubbly carbonation becomes the most recognizable during the middle part, together with a more distinct toffee profile, balanced by herbal, leaf defined hops. Hops remain pleasantly visible till the finish, adding a dry note to the otherwise profound toffee, also toned down by the metallic carbonation, from which the hops benefit the most. Interesting interpretation of this style, which would turn a tad too sweet, if it wasn’t for the pungent hops during the finish, while remaining the beers typical light, crisp mouthfeel. Untamed in comparison to many other Kölsch examples, and pretty far away from tasting boring as for the prominent hop/toffee clash, entertaining the palate very well.

Vom Fass. Hellgelb, weisser Schaum. Duft typisch Kölsch mit keichter Citrusnote. Süffig, kaum Abgang, schnell weg.
