3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap (keg) @ Beer Temple. Pale blonde color, clear. Dense white head, good lacing. Aroma’s: fruit, grassy, grain, with some malty sweetness added retronasal. Flavor is lightly maltsweet with hints of fruit. Light bodied. Flavor has retention, but no new flavor. Not bad for a Kölsch.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Very floral, slightly citrusy aroma and flavour. Light body, hoppy taste, some bready notes in the bone-dry, light bitter finish. Good beer but not on the same level as the best German kolsch beers.

Pas caractéristique d’une véritable kolsch, pas spécifique, assez peu aromatique. Marketing

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured straw with a small white head. Aroma of zesty hops. Medium body, flavour is quite bland, sweet caramel malt and generic hoppiness. Lacking the body of a true Kolsch, far closer to a standard lager.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at Craft Beer Co Brixton, London, 27 Apr 2013) Yellow colour with brief, white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of peaches, citrus and white bread. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, white bread, wheat-flour dough, peaches and a mild, grassy bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Refreshing, but taste is a bit doughey. Decent kölsch.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a light straw colour with a thin white broken head. The flavour is medium bitter, malty and very Heineken like. Ok as a refreshing summer beer but nothing special.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2013 Almost no smell, looks like a standard larger in the glass. Fairly light, quite a nice feel in the mouth, not too much going on here...
