3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Peters Brauhaus, Koln, Saturday 29th March 2014 Amongst the sea of Kolsch that we found ourselves immersed in, in Koln this was very much in that middle ground, ok it poured nice, clear gold, large attractive white head but it was just a little too sweet and hoppiness and bitter bite quite blunted. Fine but the likes of Paffgen and Braustelle were so much better. A6 A5 T6 P3 Ov12 3.2

Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Sweet, fruity and bready aroma. Taste has got a heavy maltiness and notes of semi dark bread and marzipan and a herbal bitterness. Quite sweet. Medium bitterness. Big bodied and smooth for a Kölsch.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
200 ml. draft @ Peters Brauhaus. Clear golden with a creamy head, standard look. Smell is a touch grainier than the Sion I tried before but still pretty smooth, sweetish yeast, hay, light white grapes. Taste is also a small touch grainier with sweetish yeast, hay, very faint corn & white grapes, touch sugar & sweet bread, light hops. Faintly grainy body but overall pretty smooth, creamy. Quite enjoyed it, easy to drink, yummy, no unwanted off-flavours, lovely Kölsch.

Good German Kolsch, not quite as minerally as Fruh and less fruity than the American versions. Bitter, crisp. Rocky head, yellow in color, clear. Some malt.
