Brewed in the long-brewing tradition Sünner after the German Purity Law of 1516. Spicy, aromatic taste, refreshing and wholesome. A product Kölscher real life.

CrookedNine (18) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
Poured clear, pale straw colour. Loose head which subsisted quickly leaving no lacing. Mild effervescence, thin watery body. Very easy drinking, like a mildly flavoured water. Somewhat cardboard-y taste. Not the best Kölsch I’ve ever had, not the worst.

33cl bottle. Clear golden colour with a small white head turning quickly to a persistent lacing. Malts, caramel and hat in the aroma. Average carbonation and light watery body. Taste is lightly bitter. Overall, a nice beer for a hot summer day.

500 ml bottle poured into a stange glass. "Best Before" date lists 05/2015. Aroma - Pale malt, caramel, light notes of honey,grassy hops, faint lemon. Appearance - Sticky, white head that dissipates quickly a top the clear straw-yellow liquid. Taste - Flavors reflect the aroma. Low bitterness with a slight puckering compliments the sweet malt flavors. A mineral-like flavor lingers on the palate shortly after swallowing. Sunner, unfortunately, lacks the fruity notes that I prefer in a solid kolsch. The upfront sweetness and reserved bitterness mesh well but part of the puzzle is missing. Palate - Light bodied and a bit thin. Carbonation felt disappointingly soft. Slight astringency (common for the style). Overall - It’s always possible that these bottles suffer from the long journey across the ocean. However, in this instance, Sunner is a decent offering but missing a key component.

Keg at the Pure Bar & Kitchen, Birmingham city centre. Mid tobdark gold, hazy, well-carbonated. Sulphur, apple skin, banana in the aroma. Taste is sweet, almost a hint of saccharin, with a bit sulphur hit at the end. Finish has more bitterness than the initial taste. I’m not all that keen.

On tap in Sünner am Walfisch. Deep golden colour. Quite soft mouthfeel, despite having a bit more hop character than the average Kölsch. A little bit yeasty too, adds a bit of character. Slightly soapy finish, actually not sure it’s as moreish as some.

Aroma is sulphury and taste is a bit soapy water. Nice maltyness and not too thin. A bit meh.

Macon, Ga. - Macon Beverage Outlet - 500 ml bottle. Slight haze light golden pour, snow white head. Saffron, allspice and yeast in the aroma. Biscuits, salty, creamy, some buttery notes. Crisp mouthfeel. Decent.

czar (5723) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
pours hazy very pale golden with a small white head, reviving and leaving nice lacing. honeyed cereals, fruity esters - almost a phenolic and caramel touch combined; smooth honey - hint of sweetness, grass, some nobleness, candied lemon - light peppery citrus perhaps, chalk and other smoothening minerals. light carbonation, light body - oily and smooth; relatively dry grassy-herbal finish. nice stuff - although i wish to enjoy it fresh and tempered at some point, in which case i will be sitting somewhere.. in köln.
