1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled in Koblenz, on the Rhine. Subtle fruit aroma. A a clear amber pour with no head or ring. The taste is malt forward with hints of fruit. Medium-light body and crisp carbonation. Smooth, yet dry mouthfeel. Overall, enjoyable with German food.
