3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (best by Apr 2012): pours a clear pale golden with a clingy-lacing froth of white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with a touch of honey and grassy noble hops. Starts with decent fullness and mild carbonation along with some mildly sweet malt and grassy bittering hops with a slightly metallic finish. Pretty true to style and would be a little better if fresh.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sünner Kölsch has a medium-to-thick white head, a somewhat hazy, bubbly, golden appearance, with a bit of lacing left behind and little white specs suspended throughout. The aroma is of pungent, sweet, bready, malt, and the flavor is the same, with a light hop bitterness and some biscuit aspects as well. The mouthfeel is light to medium, and Sünner Kölsch finishes crisp, clean, refreshing and dry- like a lager. Overall, this is very good and enjoyable. I recommend it! RJT

OK, this is the last Koelsch I’ll ever need to try. If this is what is being produced in Koeln, than there’s just no hope.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
