Rune (7760) - Tromsø, - DEC 7, 2012
Half, from keg at Craft Beer Co, Islington. Fading white head over a clear golden body. Pale malty aroma with grass. Dusty hops and pale malts in flavour. Smooth ending. Lightly oily palate. Clean and soft in the mouth. Easy going (London, 26.11.2012).

Clear lemon yellow colour with thin white head. Aromas of yeast and malts. Light bitter and sweetness. Pretty short finish. Fairly flat, fairly quick.

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
(bottle) Hazy, yellow colour with a blond and firm foamy head. Yeasty and slightly dusty English malty aroma with subtle fruity accents and a whiff of grassy hops in the background. Mildly bitter and delicately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a crisp carbonation. Soft pale malty base with present wheaty notes, hints of salted cracker, mildly grassy hops show up from the middle part; quite dry, bitter hoppy finish with notes of grain and wheat. Likeable interpretation of the style. 28.VI.14

tom10101 (2615) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle (500 ml). BB 27-062014, so 1 day after the BB date, Slightly hazy yellow/golden with a small quickly disappearing white head and little to no lacing. Aroma is slightly citrusy with grains, light sweetness and pils malt. Taste is slightly sweet with citrusy/fruity notes, cereals, decent malt backbone and herbal character. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Moderate lasting fnish. Not bad. Easily drinkable and quenching while not bland either. Some more freshness would certainly help, but this was already quite old when it arrived in Québec.

Minderbinder (1680) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle 500ml. Pours very clear straw yellow with low-medium white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of grain, sugar, alcohol. Taste is of grain, sugar, nuts, very slight bitterness. Palate: Light body. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: Ok. Unpleasant aftertaste. Near-harsh finish. Good, but nothing outstanding.

yngwie (13127) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2014
On tap at Crowbar. A clear, golden beer topped by a small, white head leaving some curtains. Pale malts, some grains and a generic fruityness in the aroma. Nice, but neither complex nor exciting. The flavor has some sweetish fruits in addition to what’s found in the aroma, and a gentle bitterness to smoothen things a bit. It’s dry and nicely carbonated, medium body. Lasting finish with malty sweetness, bitterness and fruityness. A refreshing and tasteful one, but a tad boring for my likings. 140503

ration (1922) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2014
180614. Bottle at home (ABM). Pours clear light golden with a disappearing head. Aroma grass, hay, bread. As expected, I wouldn’t distinguish this from a lager. OK.

laiti (5442) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Draught @ Black Door
Aroma is sweet with malt, honey and grain. Also some metallic tones. Flavour has butter, honey, grainy malt and hints of cardboard. A kölsch on the buttery side. Not my kind of kölsch; instead of freshness this has heavy maltiness and butter.

Luk_ (84) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle, a month past its best before date. Pours a clear straw yellow with decent foamy white head. Aroma is bready, cereal and honey malts. Taste is crisp cereal with moderate honey sweetness. Very decent Kölsch, easy drinking and freshness wasn’t an issue. I’m looking forward to my Köln trip!
