harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2008
From Sunner kolsch house in Koln. Least impressive of the 5 kolsches I had over lunchtime. Pale gold, thin lasting white head. Very light in flavour, bit of cream. Bit dusty/stale on aroma, not as fresh as the Fruh or Sion or Pfaffen. Disappears in mouth. NOt very hoppy on end. Little bit of faint sting.

madquacker (1049) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2008
Sweetish with a flat head and little carbonation. Straw and grain. Pale straw colour. More like a pils than a kolsch (not that i know what a kolsch is). The style seems non discernable to me.

Fin (7616) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle that I picked up from the Dodgi’ Dei’ Cowley Rd, Oxford Nov 2008. Soft golden appearance with white bubbly head. Pleasant tasting beer, very easy drinking, some soft vanilla flavour’s, bit sweet and grainy, maybe should have had a little cooler but very nice all the same.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Bottle. A really nice looking beer when poured into a Gaffel bottle. This version says 5.3% abv and I think it’s now available in the USA. Flavor is slightly sour and nicely hopped with a nice breadiness to balance it out. A bit thin bodied but pretty good.

Muggus69 (1260) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2008
500ml bottle. 3-09. Clean bright gold body, medium foamy white head that discipates quite quickly. Cereal and bready malt, touch of vanilla, some herbal/grassy citrus hops. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, drying texture, seems well attentuated. Particularly grainy bread malt body, subtle herbal and citrus hop character, possibly yeast-derivedsome banana and vanilla...but I can’t be too sure. Still not a style of beer i’m sure about, a very easy going quaffing golden ale regardless.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2008
Bottled. A yellow gold coloured lager with no head. The aroma is floral and sweet grassy. The taste is the same as the nose. Too sweet and grassy for my liking. Bottled kölschs clearly aren’t my thing.

heavy (2151) - Split, CROATIA - SEP 23, 2008
0.5 l bottle shared with friend who brought it from Köln, huge thanks Toni for picking the new style for me! Poured golden body with medium sized white head. Aroma of some lemon or grass hops with some malty notes and some spices which only distinguish them from some typical lagers. Flavor is fuller however, sweetish and a bit fruity, but pretty hoppy as well. Those lemons are still one of the most prominent flavors here, besides some spices like vanilla or banana and other esters. Nice. Medium-long, sweetish finish. Quite good...if this is are macro crap, how does the craft beer tastes like!

DruncanVeasey (7309) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2008 Bottle from Arden Wines. Beeswaxy pale malt, lemon, soft leather, grain and fizz aroma. Gently nutty with hints of lemon, rubber and vanilla. Some distinctly germanic herbal/grassy hop character in there. Cleansing pilsy bitterness to finish. Clean, soft and tasty.

leaparsons (8258) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2008
Bottle. Bright gold with a small head. Aromas are grain with lots of metal. Floral with some citrus. Flavours are sweet grain with floral, soapy notes. Metallic on the finish. Not the best.
