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

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the brewpub. Clear golden, creamy head. Salty and fruit. richly hoppy with soft, vital yet light body. Nice and soft, very refreshing. Dry and lively with growing late bitterness. What’s not to like in this beer? It’s delicious! A showpiece and subtle and quaffable real Kölsch can be.

Draught at the brewpub. Weak chalky aroma. Clear golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour starts off with a hint of burnt plastic, then turns quite malty. A little bread in the finish. Could have been cleaner.

At Sünner. By far the best Kölsch. Very hoppy. Really excellent beer. Hell I have a 75 counts allert. This should solve it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden colored with medium sized white head. Nice flowery aroma with fine hops, also some interesting perfumy note in here. Medium bodied, soft palate. Flavor also starts with nice flowers and same perfume, aftertaste dries with biting lemon. Well balanced and tasty kölsch.
