2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Pale yellow color. No head. Diacetyl, malty, sour notes in aroma. Not the aroma I like. Mellow, sweet, touch of minerals in taste. Watery palate. Of course I’m not used to with kölch, but maybe....

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pale golden, a bit hazy, small but stable lacy white head; dryish grainy and slightly lemony nose, presumably faint traces of yeast underneath; mild to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied with a slight tartness; mild lemony-hoppy finish with dry grainy traces. Fresh english summer beer, nearly better than most of the bland Cologne samples…

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Probably the only English Kölsch but labelled as "Köln style beer" to get around the protected name "Kölsch" which is limited to the Cologne area in Germany. Snow white head, deep golden blonde colour. Subtle grainy aroma with some unripe fruits and floral and grassy hops. Restrained, dry fruitiness in the mouth, soft, grainy, with lightly hop bitterish finish. Has the subtlety and delicacy of the best of Germany’s original examples.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Crystal clear gold pour with lacy white head. Aroma is grainy, nice and clean, ever so slight fruity notes, very light grassy hop, pretty authentic actually much more so than I expected. Taste is grainy, lemony, pretty legit, if a bit overhopped (more perceptible here than the aroma). Palate is light, well carbed and dry. Nice refreshing beer.

Bit thin though.
