3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale gold/yellow with a thin head. Spiciness in the aroma is really nice. Sweet upfront honey flavours tempered with the hop spiciness with some citrus in the back. Really light body but a long lingering aftertaste with enough bitterness to keep it balanced and wanting another sip. I like it, it’s good.

Aroma: Honey / Maple Syrup / Malt / Almond / Light Fruit
Appearance: Beautiful Golden Amber color
Taste: Wheat, Light Citrus, Honey, Almond
Palate: Soft / Fluid
Overall: Session Beer, or sipper. It’s definately one of those beers to savor after a hot day working in the yard. It’s refreshing and wonderful - This should be the standard of the big guys like Miller/Bud/Bullshit - in a perfect world.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pop-top @ Rudat, Dortmund-Oespel, Germany. Pours a very clear gold with glacier sized, cotton white head. Nose is grains, wild grass, and late summer arid business. Taste is grains, slight bitters with a medium-light body that’s not too bad. Palate is ok, but one-dimensional.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours gold with a thick white head. Low bead. Smells slightly earthy and quite spicy with light honeyed malt. Full-bodied for the style. Clean malt sweetness with substantial bitterness. Brief bitter finish. Leans much more towards the Czech pils than other Germans I’ve tried. Good.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Kölsch Days 2010)
Pale yellow, small heal. Thin papery aroma, but mostly. Malty, even grainy, but quite light. Taste differs, it’s more hoppy. still short of what I want from a pils, and too papery for being a good pils too.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear, bright gold, with a strong head and good lacing. The aroma is all hops - floral, grassy and slightly sweet. There is an unusual sweetness up front, as the beer enters the mouth, followed by strong, spicy pilsener hops. This flows into an enjoyable malt finish, tempered by the same lovely hops. A great example of the German interpretation of the pilsener style.
