Cask @ Ausschank Pfaffen Brauerei Max Päffgen. Almost clear golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of cereals, fresh herbal notes, light spiciness and floral notes. Taste is also of cerals, fresh grass, light spiciness, floral notes and breadied malt. Light/medium body. Moderate carbonation. Light lingering spicy finish. Good Kölsch. A tad heavy for the abv. Not even in the same league as the Päffgen Kölsch though.

Illusionen hatte ich mir gemacht, aber das voellig zu Unrecht. Derb und unausbalanciert, dazu ein wenig mit Cerealien bestueckt und erstaunlich herb im Schluss. Naja...

McTapps (4574) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2014
On tap @Bierbörse in Mühlheim. Pours out in a deep golden colour with low steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and grass. Taste of fresh hops, bread, mild citrus fruits, straw and grains. Mild finish. Refreshing and easy drinkable but nothing that extraordinary special.

Pfaffen Bier has slightly improved over the last couple of years. However it tastes very flat and steely. Far away from good standard.

caesar (5321) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2014
Tap @ Pfaffen Ausschank Koln, medium sample. Clear yellow color, short white head. Soft aroma of earthy and bit grassy hop. Medium bitter in taste. Lacks a bit character actually. I wasnt impressed at all.

kappldav123 (5163) - GERMANY - APR 16, 2014
Thanks to Erzengel for that bottle. Looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, fine malty, modest sweet. More and more like chewing gum with intense malty-sweet notes, modest fruity. Not very dry. Finish still with that chewing gum not, less intense. Strange, but interesting.

33cl, 6 14
The beer starts smooth, malty and easy drinkable. The mainpart is smooth, malty. Not too sweet, not watery. The aftertaste is smooth, hints of bitterness, not too deep in aroma, but more than many other Kölschs. Slightly grainy and easy to drink!
Nice! --> 12/12/12/12

Duller colour. Has a somewhat heavy, grainy character. Dryish finish. Not the brightest kölsch around.
