Clear amber, healthy head. Sweet malty aroma, heading towards caramalt. Fruity retronasals, a tought dusty and earthy. Taste cotinues that, milky grains dominant, but heading to an almost tingling dry earthy hoppiness. Full flavoured, and well balancded.Nice summer quaffer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gravity at the Brewpub. Very malty flavor—full-on, with caramel and some sweetness. Round and mellow, full-flavored. Not a lot fo hops, but with a decent hop finish also giving lots of fruit. A bit of dark fruit flavor too. Great. The very best of the eight Kolsches I tried in Koln today.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Bierhaus en d’r Salzgasse. A clear, slightly dark straw under a minimal-sized white head leaving nice lacings. The aroma is a bit weak, grainy with fruits. The flavor is a nice blend of grains and fruity hops, but a bit weak too, and with a good bitterness in the finish. Medium body, feeling a bit watery, and too high on carbonation. Fine bitterness in the finish. A rather boring kölsch, but refreshing and quenching. 091009
