On tap in Brauhaus Sion. So by the fourth sample struggling to tell all this Kölsch apart. I guess Sion is moderately hoppy, the second most after Sünner of my samples, and quite clean. Firm malts, not much yeast. Of course it slips down well.

Smells of... nothing. Okay, maybe some citrus-peel, but that association is pretty far-fetched. The beer lacks taste too. Just the faintest notion of hop-taste in the finish, but it is very, very weak. Rather full bodied. Honestly one of the worst beers I’ve had so far.

Bottle from trade with Douberd. Decent white foam head on crystal clear yellow beer. Typical German style beer, OK but nothing existing either. Good with Chinese meal. (Velp 201411)

Kaum Aroma, frischer, leichter Geschmack, fruchtig im Abgang. Schöne Farbe und stabiler, schöner Schaum in der Kölschstange.

Quite grassy in smell as well as in taste. Slightly bitter and reasonably carbonated. Great and simple.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ Brauhaus Sion. Clear pale yellow with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma is of honeyed cereals, grass, light spicy notes and light fruitiness. Taste is also of honeyed malts, grassy notes, a touch of alcohol (?) and light spiciness. Light body and a tad watery. Soft carbonation. Grassy finish. Not the most exciting Kölsch, but quite drinkable. Lack of body.

500 ml bottle. Pours a dark golden colour with a small head. Aroma of grainy malts, some wet earthy notes and grass. Flavour of grainy malts, quite strong grassy notes, mild yeastiness, some fruitiness and tartness. Light bodied and high carbonation. Decent.
