0.5L swing-top bottle. Pours clear yellow with very small head. Grassy aroma. Refreshing but not a lot of flavour.

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.

<b>Draught @ Hellers Brauhaus, Roonstrasse 33, Köln, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.</b>
Clear medium yellow color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, hay, fruity, light to moderate hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet to light light heavy and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft.

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2009
Draught, 4.5% at the brewpub. Clear yellow colour. Good stable white head. The flavour starts off with a nice maltiness. The finish is slightly chalky, but quite subtle. Low bitterness, nice and clean.

asheft (2441) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2008
[bottle] 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!

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2007
Fresh malt aroma, hops are fine too, yellow, pours a small white head. Flavour is a hops/malt marriage, like homemade bread. Sweet, tasty, too easy to drink, wish there was more. Very good. Thanks Radek Kliber.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2007
Pale blonde, clear, fair white head. Unassuming hay-like malts through and through. More hoppy in the nose than in mouth where a fair bit of sweetness remains and fails at being completely cut by the pointy, spritzy carbonation that feels a bit too much and reduces drinkability.

mds (2167) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2007
Bottle. Slightly hazy orange-brown body with a small white bubbly ring of head. Doughy sweetness in the aroma along with some fruitiness. Decent bitterness profile with some caramely malts. Pretty good.

Radek Kliber (6321) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAR 13, 2007
Swing-top bottle 500ml
Golden beer with light haze, porous, bubbly white head.
Fruity aroma, clean nose with good hint of citric hops.
Medium bodied, nice soft textures. Beer that’s sits pleasant on your lips. Gentle bitters floating around with near soft citric accents. Unusual for Kolsch yet neatly done. One more please!
