Koelschtrinker (17288) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Kerstbierfestival 2007 Etwas alkoholischer Geruch, hopfig, süß. Leicht cremiger Antrunk, etwas hopfig, dazu zurückhaltend kräuterartig. Im Mittelteil wird das Bier hopfiger, das viele CO2 wirkt in Teilen störend. Mittelaromatisch, malzig-süffig, erneut etwas cremig mit leicht herbem Einfluss. Test vom 20.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,12,-,12 - 11,84

No head left, slightly hazy amber beer. Toasted, caramel, orange peel, ginger, and suggesting too much sweetness. Roasted/toasted flavours, again orange peel, maltsyrup, parsley. Spicy jumble as finish. Aggressively alcoholic. Plaizierke What’s in a name?
