3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap@ahven. Pale golden, clear. Pale pilsner malty, subtly fruity, quite clean aroma. Somewhat dry, pale malty, suitably bitter. Light, fresh. Haven’t had a kölsch for a while, but this feels a tad more grainy, pale-ale- malty, than what I remember. But I like the subtle yeasty fruityness on the, otherwise, lagery flavours. Could even be more bland. And I really appreciate that there’s no hoppyness wrecking it all.

Flavours were sweetness, fruitiness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. Mostly like a watery pale lager but the aroma was good.

Very faint aroma, some citrus can be noticed. Golden clear colour. Malty sweet taste, like chewing on malt. The sweetness in nicely balanced by the bitterness but malt i the main player. Finish is bready. Medium body lively carbonation. There could have been more aroma but the taste is really nice. This is a good summer beer. Nice light but still good taste.

pours hazy extra pale yellow with a small and reviving slightly creamy immaculate white head, some lacing. lemony, dusty, crisp pils, wheat - very fresh cereals, grassy fatty nobleness, sulfur touch, almost a white wine character. average to moderate carbonation, light body - smooth, dry and crisp herbal-floral-citrusy finish. dangerously quaffable. for what i know of koelsches, this one rocks!
