BlackHaddock (4435) - 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.

JulienHuxley (3807) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
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.

Erzengel (4745) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 16, 2014
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

ThirstyBird (1940) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 23, 2014
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.
