Clean, crisp flavour expected - clean, crisp flavour delivered. Deliciously refreshing without being dangerously strong. Lust what one would want of a summer ale.

Keg at CBC, Brixton. Mid-yellow. Big white head. Spur yeasty aroma, almost like a mediocre pilsner. It’s the taste that makes the difference: sour-sweet, crisp and refreshing. Short palette. The carbonation is welcome on the lips. I haven’t had a Kölsch in about 18 months, a nice reacquaintance.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle into a Guinness pint. ABV 4.8%
Pale golden yellow colour on the body, clear, with little activity in it. Big white and soapy head, with average retention, leaving medium lacing around the glass.
Aroma of grass, straw, light hops presence.
Taste is light sweet and just a tad malty, with grass and clean hay. Light apple-like flavour on the finish. Slighty but very pleasant bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium thin on the body, average carbonation, very dry on the palate.
Overall quite good, very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale straw colour with a frothy white head that rapidly dissipates. Quite crisp and bitter with some apple notes at first before mellowing into a slightly sweet caramel finish. This is pleasant enough, but was a bit subtle/bland for my tastes.
