3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Rating number 1000, woo! Only took 8 years and 8 months.)
0.5L bottle, pours clear light amber with minimal head. Fairly malty aroma for a Kölsch. Sour hop flavour. Decent session Kölsch, not bitter or metallic like many competitors.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear gold pour, nice creamy white head. Aroma is grainy, just a hint of apple fruitiness, light lemon as well, light hay. Taste is grainy, just a tad sweet, nice flour-y graininess. Palate is a strong point, smooth and creamy. Good.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
The beer starts smooth, hints of sharpness, slightly sourish. The mainpart continues a bit unround, smooth but sharp. The aftertaste is a bit mouldy, typical "Erzquell-taste" (I think it is the yeast).
Not my favourite, but fits in the Erzquell-range very well. 7/10/8/7

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a bright pale yellow with a fluffy white head. The smell is grain, light fruit, grass. The taste is Grain, light sweet malt, some fruit notes ending with a touch of dryness. The body is a bit heavier than most kölschbiers, a little oily with very nice, fine carbonation structure.
