Bottle @ family weekend in Germany, bought at local Getrankemarkt. Clear a bit pale golden color, average sized white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell and taste moderately malty, light hay, suprisingly a light citrussy hint, average bitterness. Average body and carbonation. Decent..

Nice fruity lager-like aroma. Fresh and refreshing. Gentle hop finish, a nice citrussy aspect and a gentle bite. Fullish palate, smooth. 2 of these went down very easily. This is my first proof that Kolsch isn’t, or shouldn’t be, just a pale coloured lager beer, the fruitiness is unlike anything I’ve had in a lager context.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2015 33 cl Bügelflasche, bernsteinfarbenes, leicht trübes Bier, weißer, schwammiger, langlebiger Schaum. Riecht nach Brot, sehr malziger Geschmack. Mein Lieblingskölsch, das sich ja nicht Kölsch nennen darf.

A Kölsch - not really from Cologne though - for Weiberfastnacht: 0,33 l bottle from Biermuseum in Cologne, best before 2/2015. Minimally hazy, golden yellow with a touch of brown, fine-pored, creamy, stable, white head. Really nice and fresh citrusy aroma, detecting some lemon and white grapes with hints of honey. Interesting sweetish tase dominated by honey with some citrusy notes and green apple. Short, slightly bitter and pleasant finish. Thin to medium body but not watery, almost creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Really nice surprise, doesn’t taste like any of the Kölsch I’ve had before. Very refreshing and not too sweet but just enough. Good!

330 ml bottle. From a trade with Erzengel. Vielen Dank Gabriel!
Slightly cloudy deep golden colour with a small foamy off-white head. Herbal and fruity notes, sweetness, cereal malt and some sugary notes in the aroma. The flavour is sweet malty with some sweetish floral notes. Not very fresh.

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...
