3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The beer in glass is light yellow and pearly with a lot of CO2. Medium fine and durable flat head.Smells surprisingly hoppy fresh. Starts bitterhoppy, very bitter for a Kölsch. The hops come through well, and in the aftertaste, a light sweet hoppy flavor comes through. The further course is a bit milder, there are good, hoppy aromas. Outstanding good Kölsch, I am surprised!

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at a random pub in Berlin.
Appearance : Clear yellow with a medium fluffy white head.
Aroma : Adjunct, malt and hops. A bit citrusy.
Taste : Malt, adjunct, notes of honey. Citrusy. Finish crisp and dry with lots of malt. Slightly bitter. Slightly grainy.
Overall : Refreshing but not very interesting. Compared to the great Kolsch I had in Cologne later on the trip, this one was just aweful.

Bottle. Barley malt and grassy hops aroma. Golden yellow color with moderate head and light effervescence. Bittersweet barley malt flavor with light metallic finish. Would be much better without the metallic aftertaste.

The bottle looks simple, but good, the beer in the glass is zippy, nice head. Starts fruity and fresh, a little bit yeasty. Notes of lemon. Very mild. Finish well balanced, not very intense. Quite drinkable. Not bad!
