3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Brauerei Paffgen, Koeln.
As crisp as you can get and still have the charecteristic diacetyl of a true Kolsch. A spicy boquet a slightly sharp tongue.
A personal favorite along with Muhlen. Best enjoyed at night, in the garden.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent white head covers the clear golden, pale pour. Richly malty nose, smooth and sweeter than most other Kölsch. Almost wheaty in its juicy, talkative grainy malt profile. The carbonation manages to keep it all pertinent and cohesive. Crisp and tight bubbles, despite a generally soft carbonation, bring forward all the freshness of the ingredients. A great example, very well balanced and polished, if not as hoppy as some.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2007 From tap at bierhaus in Köln. Very yeasty and smooth, almost pils like bitterness to it. Quite "raw" brew taste. I’d like to have another go with this.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draught at Bierhaus En D’r Salzgass, Köln) Clear golden color, white lasting head, very lasting considering most Kölsch. Small malty scent. Strong grainy scent that change into some fruitiness. A rather sharp bitterness lingering in teh back. Part from the initial sharp sting of strange bitterness, not much else in there. A bit fruity aftertaste perhaps.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2006 Draught@GBBF 06’. palae gold. Not much of an aroma, or flavour for that matter. Thin grainy mouthfeel, with a very short watery finish. Not a very good kolsch in my opinion.
