4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at Au Cheval, 6/10/14
Aroma: The nose of this beer has some bready malts and some citrus hops
Appearance: It pours a clear yellow-gold color with a thin, fizzy head and some average lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, light bready, malty, and some decent hop notes
Palate: The body is light and fizzy, it has an okay drinkability and mouthfeel
I thought this was a decent, but not great example of the style. Light and fizzy, with a solid flavor.
