AshtonMcCobb (4056) - Edinburgh, - SEP 16, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours golden with a slight haze, no bubbles and a nicely proportioned head. The nose has hay, then cereal (possible shredded wheat or cornflakes) and lemon. The taste has more lemon and cornflakes but also some honey kicks in as it warms up. The palate has an intense but tight body with a persistent length and a long clean finish. Overall, a really well made Kolsch.

bartlebier (2654) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2015
500ml bottle hauled by D&M from Sheffield to the P-Worm, danke! For a bottled foreign specimen, Thornbridge mimics the crisp herbal freshness of a Päffgen on tap in Köln rather well, while most bottled Kölsch tend to be dull caramalty shadows of their fresh-barreled prime form. Adds some UK ale fruitiness to the thin sweet cracker malt base, while candied lemon, herbal and floral hop flavours abound. One of the better foreign covers of this delicate, underappreciated style.

RW80 (1311) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2015
0,5 l bottle Appearance: Clear pale straw with very small white head. Aroma: Sweet, malts, breads, light citrus hops. Taste: Light seet ,thinnish, Sweet matls, breads, light citrus hops, some nuts and honey.. Light bitter finish. Medium bodied, firm sparkling carbonation but it works refreshingly so not overcarbonated. A better one it it’s style. and that it not comming out of Cologne. :-)

500ml Bottle. Pours light amber pale, clear, white head. Nose is weak straw, bit floral. Taste is floral, wheat, malt, a bit bland, but I find this style of beer is a bit.

Vignale (2570) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2015
Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea. Gyllengul, klar med knappt någon skum alls. Massor av sädesdoft och vitt vin typ Chardonnay. Chardonnaykaraktären blir ännu tydligare i smaken som är lite maltsyrlig och maltsöt i bra balans. Saknar lite stuns men annars ett riktigt trevlig gyllene sädesvin.

Kauge (754) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 3, 2015
Bottle from the strange store in Tallinn (€ 3.82). BB 25.02.2016. Clear, very pale yellow colour, the head’s off-white, small, and dissipates quickly. Crisp and lagery on the nose, it’s got grains, hay, grassy Noble hops, and later on some warmer, fruitier, nuttier, sweeter notes. Tastes clean, refreshingly malty, nutty, with quite a lot of grassy bitterness. Very crisp carbonation, rather thin in the mouth. It’s pretty nice, not my style of beer but I don’t mind it.

SinH4 (1129) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2015
Clear golden color with big white head. Aroma is malty, citrusy. Taste is slight sweetness, a bit fruity, bready. Pleasant finish. Crisp. A good Kölsch!
