Had this as packed fortification for the trip from Köln to Dresden. Light on the palate and delicious, somewhat syrupy, but in a delicious blended way.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a very pale gold with a creamy white head. Smell is lightly bitter and grassy. Some citrusy hop persistence in the background but the flavor profile is mostly crisp, pale malt. Lightly fruity and grassy. SOme fizz and just a hint of skunk. Very crisp and clean with a lightly bitter aftertaste. Very easy to drink. Know what this tastes like? Ballantine XXX. I thought this was my first foray into kolsch but it is just like Ballantine, one of my favorite cheap standbys. Think I’ll stick with a sixer of Ballantine cans, this doesn’t show me much else to warrant import prices. Maybe I’ll save kolsch for a future trip to Cologne...

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 8, 2005
Bottle. Golden beer with a frothy light head. Lightly carbonated. Pilsener like hop aroma. Zesty refreshing beer. Lasting light hop finish. Very nice malty body. A delicate drinkable lager.

Kölsch isn’t a style that has all that many admirers, but this one is acceptable and perhaps more trustworthy to the style being that it’s brewed in Köln. Pale golden color with constant tiny bubble carbonation. Sweet, slightly cloying malt aroma with an ester element that resembles walnut. Flavor is similar to a pale lager but much more refined, with a delicate, grainy balance of hops and malt that leaves a clean finish still with a touch of pale lager grittiness. Would be great for summer tasks if one is willing to splurge at $3.49 for a 500 ml bottle.

The Lure:
Grassy hop blades lie within the milky haystack. Simple and attractive.

The Festivities:
Dry hay resists to the watery passages and remains until the finale. Hops are subtle yet tickle efficiently. Eminently quaffable.

Liters of amusement flowing along with the laughs.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2005
Herbal spicy hops and chewy cereal malts in the nose. Clear golden blonde with shy large-bubbled white head that recedes to partial cover and ring. Cereal malts and herbal, spicy, flowery hops that balance nicely. Some notes of vanilla. Light, refreshing body with gently effervescent carbonation. A very good summer beer. Bottle (Julio’s Liquors - Mar. 2005) enjoyed with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Olivier_MTL, Rastacouere and Yowie.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2005
Pours a clear pale gold color with a ring of white lace. Earthy and grainy aroma. Flavor of malt, citrus and something that feels like dirt, maybe some earthy yeast. Light body, creamy texture. Decent kolsch.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 Blonde dorée translucide trčs pale, presque exempte de mousse. Arômes frais et fruités, légčrement persillés. Une bonne dose de grain vient harmonieusement se męler aux herbes fraîches pendant qu’une honnęte suggestion de céleri bouilli et de jus de pomme s’intensifie. Niveau de carbonatation assez élevé amenant un côté vivant et presque piquant sur la langue. Échantillon datant légčrement, finale un brin oxydée ? Fidčle au style !

Rastacouere (6166) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2005
Very clear (see fingerprints through) pale golden, short-lasting white head. Close to skunky aroma upon opening, but this clears out a leave the way to fresh cut grass and rather fresh hops and hay aromas. All light, all honest pils malt displayed under a quaffable, clean and resh bitterness. Very light bodied, crisp and slightly ricey. Okay stuff, but I’d quickly pass to the next.
