On draught at 1st Annual Kölsch Fest at Prost. Very light golden color with plenty of fizz. Light aroma of straw and malt. Sweet taste with a hint of apple. Hint of spice on the finish. Not as clean as other kölschs, but good nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear gold with a hint of haze. Mineral, grain, grass and butter aroma, with an earthy sweetness, squash or sweet corn. Mild bitterness against honeyed cereals and bread in the flavor, with a pleasing mineral mustiness coming from the kolsch yeast. Clean body, no residuals. Tangy, lactose suggestions the only negative.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear solar yellow with a fairly thick eggshell head. Crisp and malty aroma has more than a hint of pear. Malty flavor is crisp and refreshing, a little fruity, nice after a steamy day. Mouthfeel has average body and not much fizz. Typical, but enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Beer Cartel. Poured into a 250ml Bitburger glass (as near as I can get to a Kolsch glass). Subtle peppery/hop nose. Pale amber beer with many tiny bubbles, solid white head. Flat mouthfeel, medium body. A little malty, a bit grainy, distant hops then a light lemon finish. Not very complex (as per the style). Designed to be drunk quickly and often, quite delicious actually.

Bottle from VP Storo enjoyed at home
Golden hazy, big white head. Smell of light malts, some yeast fruityness, hay and grassy hops. Light sweet, light malts, quite crisp, hints of fruity elements, nice and dry. Moderate bitter, grassy finish. Very nice kölsch!
