Fatehunter (1414) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 8, 2013
A finger of head on a clear, golden colored body with lots of bubbles coming up. The aroma is a strong grain, hay and barnyard with a touch of lemon. The taste is mild overall with a mild lemon bitterness and grain flavor. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Here’s a perfect outdoor drink on a warm day to watch the world go by.

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.

JorgeLee (1315) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015
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 (4937) - 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.

Mediocre beer. Golden color with a thin composition. Heavy carbonation and fizz but pours very smoothly into a pint glass. Sour aroma and taste.

0,5l hanasta Viidessä Pennissä. Kirkas kullankeltainen. Tuoksussa hapokkuutta, hiivaa, mallasta ja humalaa. Myös hapanta omenasiideriä. Maussa mallasta, humalaa, hapokkuutta ja hieman hiivaa. Hieman sitrusta.

Douberd (2832) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2014
(Sünner Kölsch) Green bottle, 500 ml, served into a kolsch glass at home, ABV 4.8% Bright golden yellow colour on the body, small and thin white head, with okay retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Fresh aroma, grassy, light malts, weeds, citrus-y notes. Taste also of grass, light citrus/lemon, straw on a field, some metal notes on the finish, good bitterness. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Quite good.

Can’t believe I haven’t rated this before. But I started after my days of living in the EIFEL and chugging koelsch. Like all true koelsch, this is true to style, light yet effervescent and flavorful. Who could ever drink Bud Light over a true classic like this? (#5867, 11/22/2014)
