500ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear pale golden yellow, with initially a good head, but this fades. Aromas are grassy hops and bread with light malt. Big barley taste coming through, not much else. Good creamy texture though, and finishes short and dry.

Bottle. Lemony nose, grass, light malts. Pale gold color with a lacy head. Very sweet, fruity, malty flavor, a bit of butter. Lemony. Rich and sweet and not a proper kolsch imo.

Tastes like a lager and looks like a lager, not bad, but nothing special and not memorable

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle pours with a crystal clear gold body that supports a near white head of foam. The aroma offers up malt and cereal malt sweetness mixed with light floral and corn nuanced lime notes. The taste delivers a decent load of hops that have a bitter edge to them from the likes of floral and spicy and slightly green citrus notes that create a bit of a heavy experience. Behind those notes are sugary malts with a touch of cracker. Decent.
