3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap at the the Brauerei Mahlzmuhle in Koeln.
Along with Paffgen, one of the two most distinctive and enjoyable Kolschs. Where Paffgen is hoppier, spicier; Muhlen Kolsch leans toward malt character.
A twinge of malt in the body. Undertone of anise or perhaps softer; fennel. Pale yellow with a glint of copper.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tap at the brewpub. Yellow color, white head. Guess they had some problems, my beer had an infected aroma and taste of vegetables, cardboard, skunk and other ugly things. Hope I get the chance to rerate.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden clear beer with nice head but it sadly goes away quickly. Aroma has barley malts and some grassy hop notes. Taste is basic, barley malts and grassy hop flavors. Decent beer but nice kölsch.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A good Kölsch. Seems slightly more bitter from the bottle than at the brewery. Light and refreshing, quite malty, as a Kölsch should be. The label seems a modernized version of a more traditional earlier one, probably to accomodate the demands of EU-labeling laws.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was a pretty decent Kolsch. Tried it at the brewery, and its a good thing that it was a session here because once you finish your drink the waiter just comes and brings you a new one without you even asking. Not much that separates it from the other kolschs in the city except its a slight bit sweeter. Mostly caramel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From tap at Brauhaus Pütz Köln. Beer came in perfect condition thanks to the excellent Köbes. Still one of the top three Kölsch. Has a lot more flavour than (most of) the rest. Good stuff when served in the right location.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ at the source. Clear golden yellow with a stiff white head. Aroma of grainy malt, spicy/peppery yeast and light grassy hops. Flavor is malty but not sweet with a nice zest and fruity quality. Light body but not thin. Really nice beer, refreshing and crisp.
