3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Clear pale golden, small head. salty and fruity with some grassy hops. Soft and fairly light bodied. Mild and quaffable, but lacks the depth of the best kölsches.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
flip-top bottle. Clear glassy gold with exactly one stream of rising bubbles. Aroma is very sweet. Yields a lot, though, and has a nice biscuit character. Soft carbonation is nice. Flavors are nice too with simple sweet cereal grains, and good juicy apple flavors.

This Kolsch seems to have had a bit more flavor than other I’ve tried. Almost a bit of yeast??? Something sneaking in the back of my mouth was a bit sweet. Of the few Kolsch I’ve tried I liked this one the best.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle bought at some grocery in Munich. Pours a semi-dark orange color, darker and dirtier than expected. Nose of apple scented fruity yeast esters, big on the red apple notes and dough, similar the yeast presence in steam beer. Flavor is more dough, apples, with a big, fruity ale yeast character. Body is medium thin. Overall okay, below average, lacks crispness, too fruity, a bit strange.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Plenty of crisp 2-row in the nose, with a touch of noble hops and citrus and pine notes. Bright, dark straw colour with lasting white flanel blanket cover. Sweetish and grainy malt flavour with some notes of citrus that seem to come from hops. Appropriate bitterness works well with the medium carbonation level. Light to medium body and almost clean finish.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Fine foam. A little bit drier then other Kölsch, very drinkable. Not bad!
