A golden ale with a thick receding white head. In aroma, predominating caramel malt with faint herbal hops. In mouth, a dryish lager like beer, with crisp malt, light caramel, faint British hops, quaffable, but not really a bitter. Bought at the MLCC, April 2011.

Koelschtrinker (12275) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Wenig bitterer Antrunk, die Hopfigkeit steht mild aber erfrtischend im Vordergrund. Dies wandelt sich aber im Mitteltel, in dem die Bitterkeit stärker wird, aber in angenehmem Rahmen bleibt. Die Hopfigkeit dümpelt dagegen nun auf milderen Niveau im Hintergrund, sie reicht aber noch, um einen passenden Hintergrundton zu geben. Spritziges, etwas getreidiges und semiges Finish. Stimmig! 9/9/9/9/7/9

0.5 l bottle from City-Market Keljo, Jyväskylä. Copper color. Floral and resiny hop aroma. Dryish taste with floral, fruity and resiny hop flavor on top, minerally bitterness in finish. Light bodied. Could have more malt backbone and less mineral taste. Refreshing.
