zimbo (482) - SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2014
Very attractive looking beer. Golden palish crystal to the eye with a pure white head. Good fruit in the nose delivering a similar clean taste. Some modest richness too. Nice.

ardbeguser (18) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Very disappointing Kolsch. Overly carbonated for the style. Thin and flavourless.

gildnerk (69) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2014
Hellgelb mit schaumiger weißer Schaumkrone, die sich in einen Ring auflöst. Schwache Aromen von Hefe und Zitrone. Leichter, bitter-süßer Körper mit feinperliger CO2 und einem bitter-hopfigen Abgang, der allerdings auch einen etwas derben Geschmack hinterlässt. Kommerzielles Kölsch.

AshtonMcCobb (2113) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2014
50cl bottle thanks to my robotics friends. Appearance - Nose - pale malt, popcorn, bread straight out of the oven. A hint of herbs and/or lemon. Taste - tangy lemon and malt. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a dry finish. Overall - another solid Kolsch.

allmyvinyl (2159) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2014
500ml bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Bready malt aroma, herbal hops. Taste is light sweet, light bitter. Astringent finish. Ok.

bartlebier (1161) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Tap @James Joyce Irish Pub, Bonn 13/02, the only near-local option (Vulkan discontinued). Served in a custom-defying 0,3L glass, which was the only remarkable thing about this. In the same boring, corn and cardboard league as Früh but without the Früh lemonade malts. Soggy, laff, lacking the crisp malts and gentle hop kick that redeems Kölsch as a style worthy of survival. Matches the overall feel of lacklustrely managed Irish pub in Germany very well in this respect, a bland posthumous stomp in Joyce’ joyous groin.//rerate from bottle 02/2014: pours with considerably more character and characteristic lemonade malts, fizzily, from the beautifulky labelled bottle, lifting up the overall drinking experience over a potentially pedestrian chug. +0,8

erickok (3161) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 14, 2014
Clean and headless. Simplistic pilsner malts and little character. Bitter watery taste. Cereal and metallic. Bleh. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

janubio (362) - SPAIN - JAN 31, 2014
I’ve got one in a see through bottle that made me suspicious, and 4,8 ABV. Clear golden colour, head fades away soon but leaves a good lace. Fresh hoppy semll, grainy, citrus and herbs. Medium to light body, feels really good in the tongue. Clean taste is similar to the smell, refreshing, hops, flowers. Very good indeed.
