fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2011
Draught at the brauhaus
Blond color, just a shade darker. It’s a mild beer, with no noticeable characteristics; the very light fruity sweetness is maybe the only sign of the top fermentation; ordinary bitterness. Easy, but not totally bad.

Cloudy golden colour with tiny white head. Sweetish aroma with some caramel, fruitiness and malt. Flavour is very mild bitterness, caramel sweetness, sugary fruitiness and malt. Easy and drinkable Kölsch.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 2, 2010
On tap at Hellers (9/1/09): Pours a transparent golden with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet pale malts with a fresh, semi-earthy noble hop balance. Starts fairly full and slightly sticky for the style with some mild caramel sweetness balanced with some grassy hop bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish. Not quite as drinkable for the style.

oh6gdx (24919) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 31, 2010
Bottled (from BierZwerg.de). Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is quite big on bready and caramelly malts, also has some citrus fruits, mild earthcellaryness as well as some mild herbs. Flavour is wood, fruits, some earthcellar as well as mild bready malts. Biting carbonation. Some slight harsh grainy notes as it warms up a bit, otherwise quite nice.

TBone (15911) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2010
Swing-top bottle (BZ, BB 07/2010)
Clear golden color, small white head. Quite grainy, papery aroma. Very sweet malty (for a light lager) with cardboard, corn and hints of diacetyl. Lacks all good things in Kölsch (=citrus hoppy fruityness). Maybe because it is an eco-beer? Where have all the hops gone?
