Bottled (as Hoo Doo Kölsch@Oliver Twist, Stockholm). Hazy yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is grainy, herbal, some bready malts along with some slight earthy and grassy notes. Flavour is rather similar with a nice bitterness in the finish. Balanced and for once quite close quite close to the German Kölsch.

On tap @ Uinta. Dark golden pour with a nice white head. There’s a nice biscuity and almost doughy/cake batter thing to it. Perhaps a bit sweeter than I’d normally like in a Kolsch, but not bad. Some light grassy hop character, a touch of apple esters, and lemon peel. Light bitterness on the back end. Decent enough.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light aroma of malt and citrus. Pale gold color with frothy white head. Very light taste - citrus like, very thin, a bit of wet paper, a very little hop at the end. Very drinkable, but so is water. Having said that, it is head and shoulders above Budweiser. And eventually some bitter hop arises to be noticed. Maybe even a hint of apricot. There are some sleeper aspects.
