Notes from BJCP tasting session, 2-4oz sample from 12oz bottle

Aroma: light malt with grainy sweetness, slight fruitiness - maybe apples, pears, or honey, floral hops, clean and fresh

Appearance: pale gold color with brilliant clarity, white head, not persistent

Taste: Grainy sweet almost corny, subtle spicy hops, near fruitiness or honey, very clean, low bitterness

Palate: medium body, average carbonation, smooth and crisp

Overall: A very clean kolsch. Well done with a slight fruitiness or honey taste. Aroma was very pleasant, slightly lower on bitterness than I expected, but overall a solid Kolsch.

Vandenberq (38) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2015
Frisch, fein karbonisiert, Malzig- und Bitterkeit perfekt gegeneinander abgestimmt. Nichts stört, dabei aber auch nicht öde: sehr angenehm. – Minimalistische Flaschenklassik mit Goldrand, Zierde jedes Schreibtischs.

FatPhil (11835) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 28, 2015
500ml bottle (Petrol station between Dusseldorf and Olpe)
Even though it’s warm, there are no esters in this. Utterly indistinguishable from pale lager. Taste likewise. Some hoppy bitter finish, but it’s papery and rough.
