BlackHaddock (5189) - Shropshire, - NOV 6, 2012
500ml Bottle: best before Feb 2012. Poured into a UK pint sleeve @ home on 6th Nov 2012. Kölsch has never been, nor will be a favourate style of mine and bottled versions are not as fresh or clean as draught ones in the city: this bottle hasn’t changed my mind. Kölsch is just to delicate for my palate, I struggle to find the ’niceties’ others claim to pick up. Anyway here’s my thoughts. Pours a true golden colour: bright and clear. the full snow white head soon became a thin collar and a ’will o the wisp’ thought. Grassy, grainy nose and feel to the taste, add mild hints of hop and you’ve got the smell. Taste wise it is fairly bland, maltier than the aroma suggests, the grains and grassiness on level terms with the buscuity malts, it does have a semi-bitter finish as the hops kick in, but there is no real depth to anything. Well carbonated and fairly refreshing: not a winters day beer, but I bet it tastes a lot better in the brewpub when really fresh. Scores come out as average, this doesn’t stand out as a great example of the style, nor does it let the style down.

Bottle. Aroma earthy and basementy yeast. Quite traditional. Cleae yellow to golden colour. Moderate white head. Taste is very clean, light lager yeast, nicely balanced, rather low bitterness but also rather thin body and low residual sweetness. Thin and refreshing, easy drinking. Simple clean lager bier.

Bottle, traded with McTapps and MichaelAwesome, thanks! Grain, candy and apples in the aroma. Almost no bitterness. Initially crisp-fruity, the taste gets kinda dull with time. Not so good.

Zugegebenermaßen eins der besseren Kölsch meines Lebens. Vielleicht hat die Atmo ein klein wenig mitgespielt, aber das Bierchen selbst ist nicht nur süffig und einfach zu trinken, nein, neben der Erfrischung ist es durchaus spritzig und neben einer milden Hopfung auch leicht fruchtig. Ehrlich gesagt, hätte ich nach den ersten zwei noch weitere acht haben können. Top.

McTapps (6045) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - APR 19, 2015
On tap at the brewpub in Cologne. The beer has got a clear golden colour with a steady low head and medium to crisp body. Aroma of hops and citrus fruits with some malty hints. Taste of hops, citrus fruits, flowers, hay and bread. Refreshing and easy drinkable. Solid and enjoyable beer.

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.
