This is the real deal, a perfect Kölsch. Bright golden color, thick white head, great foam retention, that true Kölsch aroma, full dry taste. For those of you who have never been to the city of Cologne, this is their beer style and Sünner still uses open fermenters to produce a fantastic beer. Do not rate this beer if you are unfamiliar with the style! This beer style is very unique and its nuances take a long time to discern. That wonderful Kölsch aroma from their proprietary yeast strain is unbeatable. A very delicate beer which deserves more recognition outside of Germany.

Pours brilliantly clear gold colour with one finger of white head. Lemony citrus floral aroma. Grainy too. Thin bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Clean tasting with a touch of bitterness. Creaminess leaves a slightly lingering finish rather than a biting one.

Nokian vettä, jonne on kustu. Myös fairya on osunut sopivasti. Hyi helkkari. Vihreä pullo on pahan alku ja juuri.

Lagerboy (1232) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
500 ml bottle. Clear yellow gold, lasting fine white foam. Green bottle smell. Taste is skunky and grassy, buttery lager malt, a hint of noble hop, some citrus. Softer than average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Sours a bit. Not much to discern this from the typical skunky Euro-lager. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

Pretty average brew. Aromas are almost nonexistent. Flavors are semi sweet grains and some metal. Goes down easy on a hot day... Finished it in about 5 minutes.
