3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
’Modern’ Kölsch with very delicate, moussy head, yellowish blonde colour and delicately malty aroma, as should be expected from the style, along with grassy and flowery hops and a hint of apple. Maltier taste than usual for a Kölsch, perhaps a tad too much for the style, finishing in a soft, elegant, lightly spicy hoppy dryness.

Für ein Kölsch ist das Bier ziehmlich herb, da schmecken mir andere Kölsch besser! Man kann das Zeug trinken, aber es gibt bessere, sogar das Hansa-Kölsch schmeckt besser als dieses!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 500 ml at home. Poured into a kosch glass, ABV 4.8%
Golden yellow colour on a crystal clear body with lazy acticity in it. Small white head on top, a bit thin, with okay retention, leaving minimal lacing on the glass.
Aroma of malts, sweet and syrup-like.
Taste is also quite sweet, malty, some grass.
Medium thin body, good carbonation.
Not so interesting beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the bierkoning. Clear gold pour with thin disappearing white head. Aroma is grainy, mellow flour notes, very light grassy hop. Taste is bready, low/absent hoppiness, light metallic notes. Palate is light bodied with medium carbonation, soft palate. Easy drinking, but a bit boring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Bedford-Bamberg Beer Festival 2014. Deep yellow, with modest carbonation and head. Malt aroma shines through the honey and lemon undertones. Sweet taste which fades nicely with some barley sugar notes. I’m not quite as convinced by the sweet/sour aftertaste. A competent and enjoyable traditional Kölsch.

0,5 l bottle with a nice looking simple label art design. Pale golden in the glass, small short living head. Low malt and marzipan on the nose. Tastes malty sweet, low herb, little bit citrus with metallic. Average easy-to-drink Kölsch.
