3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at BBF07. Shiny pale golden colour. Very small head. The flavour is mild, slightly bready, but clean. Low bitterness. Good and true to style, but of course therefore a bit boring.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden colored, fastly vanishing white head. Aroma is fruity with some perfume-aromated hops and bittersweetness, grainy tones also there. Flavor is also finely hopped with some floral and perfumy tones, bitter palate with lemon there too. Aftertaste lasts with hoppy sweetness and lemon. Lacks maybe some carbonation, still ok beer.

Bottle: Golden coloured, thin but stable white froth, sticking to the glass; malty and slightly fruity nose; slightly bitter flavour, fizzy mouthfeel; dry bitter finish with some fruity undertones. A well-made Kölsch, quite spicy for this style........

Swing top bottle, provided by Dortmunder: thanks! Very soft grassy aroma. Thin to medium bodied. Light hoppy and grassy flavor. Some fruity (especially orange) esters. Light and fresh with a soft bitter aftertaste. Respectable Kölsch, indeed.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Clear golden colour. Small bubbly head. Aroma shows some fruitiness and herbal hops. Tastes slightly fruity, a little malty and quite hoppy. Good medium body and a good mouthfeel, but is also quite carbonated. A nice full Kölsch with the fruity notes that are in all good examples.
