felsenpils (151) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
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.

Bottle (from beer gonzo?). Pours golden with whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, malty, metaliic, somewhat grainy. Flavor is sweet and bitter, metallic, somewhat floral, fruity, malty. Finish is dry. Overall: not bad, but the metallic flavors are bit too overwhelming.
