Bottled. Deep yellow body, frothy head, crisp lemonish taste, well balanced if a little bland.

Fin kölsch med smag af let sødme fra malten og en del smag af humlen. God let i det, og passer vist stilen godt.

Excellent representation of the style. Spicy aroma, to style (noble hops) with mild doughy back palate. refreshing with a mildly sweet finish. Good kolsch!

500ml bottle (Kaufland, Olpe)
Smells like a fairly typical sweet pale lager. Mostly the pale lager malts, some gently fruity esters. Looks like one too. Tastes mostly like one too, but does have an extra kick of esters in the retronasals. Hopping levels decent too. Does leave a tiny tingle on the tongue. Golden, tight brief head. Does very little to shake my view that Kolsch is just pale lager brewed with an inappropriate yeast, but most of that could be the accountants. Should we send in the next one, Herr Doktor Oetker?

50 cl Flasche. Goldgelbes Bier, feinporiger Schaum. Riecht zunächst leicht nach Brot, sobald die Schaumkrone abgebaut hat, wird das Aroma metallern. Der Geschmack ist leicht bitter, aber auch hier kommt Metall durch.

Alengrin (3401) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
’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!

Douberd (3294) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2014
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.

JulienHuxley (4319) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
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.
