3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nose is cereal, grain. Taste is cereal, a little caramel, grassy, almost no hop profile, bread. Mouthfeel is full.
It’s another example for me of the baffling ordinariness of many German beers. Inoffensive.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a crystal clear golden color, with a froth, huge white head.
Smells of wheat, wet hay, grainy bread and garden herbs. Smells pleasantly fresh, while not being able to provide too much depth on the nose.
Has a creamy mouthfeel with a lively, refreshing carbonation, highlighting perfectly the beers light body.
Tastes of wet white bread, sweet hay, from which a soft toffee sweetness evolves and a mineralic note. There is a faint hop accent, which almost gets completely swallowed by the far more prominent malts.
This stays refreshing due to its bubbly carbonation, while it finishes one dimensional, with an almost complete hop absence. Extremely light bodied.

En klassiker af en typeøl. Den har fine noter af humlen og er meget frisk i det...

330ml bottle. Clear, yellow-ish golden colour with average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, snow white head. Grainy, strawy, minimally spicy aroma. Taste is pale malty, minimally strawy, mildly grassy hoppy overtones, a lemon dash, cautious spiciness. OK.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 500ml bottle.the aroma is sweet pilsner malts, grainy, light fruity esters. The flavor is sweet pilsner malts, the fruitiness is high and distracting from this subtle beer. Overly fruity.

A solid kölsch. I would want it to be a bit more dry, but in would definitely order again.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Oops, forgot for a moment what a Kolsch was and bought this to refresh my memory... of a beer style that I now recall I don’t particularly like. Oh, well. I guess this is a reasonable example of the style, pale and fizzy, tasting of hay and grain, mild and light and inoffensive. I wouldn’t walk across the street to drink it, however.

Light but lacking crispness. Would have upside on a hot summer day. A decent break from the current hops-dominated world.
