On tap at brewpub.
Appearance : Clear yellow, nice big head. Extensive lacing.

Taste : Nice malt, quite fruity. Slightly herbal and floral.
Overall : Very nice fruity profile. The fruitiest I’ve had so far. Still very clean, highly drinkable and refreshing. Maybe better than the Peters which is my favourite so far.

Draught (One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Kölsch Days 2010)
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.

KyotoLefty (6695) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 20, 2010
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.

gyllenbock (5010) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2010
On tap at the brewpub in Köln. Clear golden with a medium creamy head. Aroma of hops and fruits. Easy to drink. Crisp and refreshing, the best Kölsch that I drank on my visit in Köln/Cologne.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2010
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
