Nonsenzio (57) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2016
To shake things up a bit, I choose this beer from Cologne, it’s nice and light, with medium amounts of foam.

slowrunner77 (10131) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 24, 2016
This yellow ale has a pleasant honey-cereal like sweetness, a touch of floral hops and little else. Great example of nothing wrong with it, but nothing grabs your attention either.

Draft. Light clear gold. Nose of light wheat, slightly floral. Taste follows, off dry with some light honey sweetness. Finishes clean. Probably the best kolsch I’ve had.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2016 1/30/16 Chicago (500 ML bottle poured into Kolsch glass). Bright gold read pour, mild carbonation lingers for minutes. Nominal white head. Very pleasant aromas of malt, bread, herbs and hops. Nice mixture of bitter hops and somewhat sweet taste. Carbonation retained, crisp with medium to heavy texture and easy going down. Presence much stronger than expected for a 4.4% ABV. Happy to have picked this up, and look forward to future pours.

Draft at Valhalla with Tom. Pours a clear golden body with thick white head. Nose is pale malts and gentle grains. Light bodied with notes of sweet corn and light sugary malts. Not bad.

malvrich (250) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2015 16.9 oz. bottle Large pilsner glass No dating found A: Awkward pour from the big longneck yields 1/2" of dense white foam. Very good retention and sheeting. Crystal clear tawny pale gold color. S: Light grassy hop smell hits first. Equally light balancing cracker malts. No grape or funk detected. Slight perfume. T: There’s the grapes. Crisp tart fruity flavor is fairly pronounced. Not much complexity. Classic Kolsch though still no mustiness noted. Very light, subtle flavors. M: Very soft, fine beaded carbontaion along with almost fluffy light body means this is extremely nice going down. Drinkability is through the roof. O: Glad to finally get the chance to have and rank this classic. It won’t rewrite any books but a very well made classic and obviously one of the best of the style. If you do like Kolsch ale this is certainly a must try. Another import, however with no dating info being the only caveat.
