3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pale gold with a white head. Aroma is grainy and grassy with a little peach and some herbs. Sweet and grainy, slightly buttery. Modest bitterness but dry enough at the end. Herbal and a bit lemony there too. I remember liking this more, but it’s pretty good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle traded with Deanso. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, soapy skunky malt. The flavour is light bitter with a light hop bitter palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pretty awful.

Helder lichtgeel bier met schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en krachtig, hooi en gras achtig. Blijft redelijk lang hangen, uitstekend bier.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at some Italian place (!!) in Tempe AZ.
Light pour, while head, served in the proper branded glassware. Nice. Man, the lack of love on this site makes me sad. A good kolsch is a delgiht and it’s a tragedy (for them, not me) that the vanilla-bean-bourbon-cinnamon-weasel-shit-frappaci crowd doesn’t see this. But whatever. Crisp, slightly lemony, a very nice if subtle hop bite, grass, delicate but delicious. Great beer. I didn’t expect it to have held up well across the ocean and sitting around at some restaurant, but for whatever reason, it was in good shape. Wow -- an unexpected treat.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly sweet as far as a kölsch goes. Smells and tastes a bit of cereal or corn. Pretty drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (500 ml). Clear pale yellow with a medium white head and little lacing. Aroma is of fresh cereals, light herbal notes, hints of citrus/lemon and floral notes. Taste is slightly sweet with light cereals notes, light fruitiness, floral notes and herbal notes. Light body. Medium carbonation. Mild finish with a light lingering sweetness. Good Kölsch. Super drinkable. I would have been curious to try it from cask.
