This light-colored, refreshing ale is THE beer of Cologne. Well balanced and mild mannered, this beer is great for summer.

Pours a pale golden with a thin white head that doesn’t stay around long. Weak aroma reminds me of something American. :( Tastes OK, but nothing really stands out here. No intense malt or hop flavors, everything is subdued, with a hint of sourness. Had it for lunch, goes OK with food, but I’d rather have a pale ale. Not a repeat for me.

Pours a golden yellow whit a white head. Grass, clove, banana aroma. I liked it more than I thought I would. Probably be more enjoyable on a hot day. A b-day gift from L&J, thanks a bunch.

EyeAmBaldman (435) - Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Pours clear gold with a thick off white head. Aroma is decidedly German with a bit of skunk. Taste is a tad bitter with a typical Kolsch flavor. Not a bad Kolsch.

Bready, yeasty aroma with some notes of grass. Deeper than expected yellow with a pillowy off white head. Rich malt up front. Somewhat sweet. Notes of bread and sweet corn. Bitterness is mild on the back end, with mild note of pepper and spices. Nice carbonation. Average Kolsch.

12 oz. bottle pours a hazy yellow/straw color with small white head. Aroma is grainy but with a bit of lemon. Taste is slightly bitter with an abrupt finish and aftertaste of wheat. Body is light with lively carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. A refreshing summer beer, but nothing too memorable.

Bottle. Aroma is basement aroma with mild resinous hops. Appearance is clear gold with 1 finger-width white foamy head, mild sparkle and no lacing. Taste is medium bitter over mild fruity ester sweetness. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, fair carbonation and bitter finish. Overall, not my cup of tea.

Pours a cloudy straw color. Has a slow forming white head. Some lacing.

Aroma is slightly bready. Pretty heavily fruity/citrusy. Lightly hoppy. It’s a very vibrant aroma.

Taste is hoppy, but it’s light and not too bitter. There’s a touch of lemon. The toasted malt is light, and not on the front.

Mouthfeel is crisp. It’s pretty well carbonated. It’s tasty. It’s drinkable.

Overall, this is excellent. I really like it. It’s somewhat of a medium between an IPA and a lager.
