Luk_ (241) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
At Gilden’s. Pale yellow with foamy thick head. Aroma is cereal and lemon. Taste is cereal and slight lemon tartness. A little too much carbonation. Highly quaffable. Above average.

Cerveja muito leve, sem amargor, lembra as cervejas brasileiras só com mais sabor. Boa pedida para se resfrescar no verăo.

Alengrin (4529) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Well-known representative of its style, clear golden colour with orange hue, subtle aroma of sweet malts and faint, pear-like fruity esters. Neutral onset, light maltiness, subdued fruitiness, minerals, brief and only lightly hopped finish. Actually a bit bland compared to its congeners.

VincentKabel (263) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2014
From tap at Gilden im Zims in Cologne. Light, Pilsener like beer. Malty aromas and a faint hop taste in the finish. Decent beer to drink with your mates.

JulienHuxley (5590) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Gravity pour at Gilden Im Zims. Very pale yellow pour, crystal clear, very dense white foam. Aroma is lemony, nice cereal, light citrus, grassy. Taste is grainy, very light, a bit watery, nice refreshing lemon zest. Palate is light, surprisingly carbed compared to the others. One of the better ones.

Douberd (4839) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a kolsch glass. ABV 4.8% Golden yellow colour on the body, with a good sized (for a kolsch) white head sitting on top, with average retentiion, leaving light lacing behind. Nit much on the aroma, bready as exoected, malts, after a carefull swirl some light grass aroma is surfacing. Sweet taste, not bad, some malts and hay, but also fresh cut grass and a touch of lemon to break down the sweetness. There is even a mild bitterness on the aftertaste. Thin body, average carbonation. Overall okay beer, but nothing really memorable.

Martinus (4497) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2014
Clear pale golden colour. White head. Malty aroma, hay, straw. Malty flavour, light hops. Malty finish. Rather decent.
(from 50cL bottle shared @ Oirschot home tasting)

Benzai (14101) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Martinus. Clear yellow - golden color, medium sized white head that diminishes quickly. Smell and taste aren’t really outspoken but no flaws either. A decent kolsch but nothing spectacular.
