3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from shrubber85- thanks again, Roger! Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with a centimeter or so of white head that settles into a lasting film and leaves a generous ring around the edge. Notes of straw, cracker, grass, sweet bread, and some fruitiness. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. So simple and easy drinking. Hit the spot.

12oz bottle, big thanks to phaleslu for sharing. BO: 07/01/14, so it’s nearing a year old I think... Hazy darker golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves some bits of lace. Bready malt, some orange, pretty rindy. Bigger sweet taste, minimal bitter. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Slick texture. Touch of corn. Not great at the moment, but ok. Malty and sweet. Much better fresh, I’m sure.

Medium, prickly carbonation, fine dry and light grainy mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, kinda doughy, light grassy, somewhat citrussy hoppy finish. Okay.

Cloudy orange-yellow color with medium foam. The smell is dry and a little yeasty. Yeasty body taste with a little cookie like taste. The aftertaste is clear and again a little yeasty. Basically this is not a bad beer, but I never had a yeasty kölsch before.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy golden-orange color with nice white head. Aroma is fresh, a bit fruity, yeasty. Definitely top-fermented I?d say. Taste is grainy-malty, spicy, a bit fruity. Fresh. Okay, but meh. Kölsch? Might just as well be a boring Saison.

In short: kölsch??
If this is a kölsch i´m the emperor of China. Pours hazy golden with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Citrusy, malty, herbal, vegetables aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, some crispy texture. Moderate bitterness, fruity. Still waiting for my kölsch.
