Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is grassy and corn-filled, and reminds me a lot of a more fragrant lager. Taste is light and crisp, and refreshing like a good lager can be. OK, but nothing remarkable overall.

Erzengel (2560) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2014
The beer starts mild and smooth, but less aroma than the Erzquell-Pils from the same brewery. The smoothness is the same, so the harsh and sharp bitter ending, which is a lot smoother here at the less aromatic Kölsch. Easy drinkable, slightly sweet. Not much aroma.
Typical Kölsch, but I don’t like the shark bitter ending. It tastes a bit cheap… --> 8/12/8/8

Slight grainy aroma and corn. Pale to gold color. Sips dry and effervescent. Subtle sweetness from malt and moderate bitterness to balance leaning towards a dry bitter finish. Leaves the tongue slightly numb and wanting a second sip. Very refreshing.

Honestly, I’ve been thinking it isn’t quite fair for us in the States to review the Euro brewed beers. They’ll never arrive in their freshest state and who knows what light, heat, etc. they experience on the trip from brewery to my glass. Anyway...I poured from the bottle in traditional Cologne form into a traditional stange to give it every chance possible to shine. Decent head but not a trace of lace. Aroma fell flat. Color was a decent straw, light golden hue. Taste was average. Sames goes for palate and mouthfeel. No lingering aftertaste. Overall pretty average. I won’t go out of my way for it but I wouldn’t pass if someone offered me one. I suspect that it is much better served locally, enjoying in a German cafe.

Pale body, small white head. Biter, herbal aroma. taste is grass, citrus. dry finish. Refreshing.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Poured two fingers of head on a clear, golden colored body. The aroma has a clean grain smell with just a touch metallic. The taste is lacking body. Watery and grainy with a little malt sweet. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. The less than good flavor really brings this beer down.

poisoneddwarf (1707) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Rating from yesterday. 16.9 oz bottle. I realized the other day that I’ve never had an authentic German Kolsch, only American versions, so I had to get this, even though I’m not a fan of the style really at all. Pours mostly clear golden with a large-ish fluffy white head. Smells like hay, unripe berries. Taste is sweet and grassy with faint bitterness; very dry. Not bad for what it is.

Bamsen78 (3108) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2013
Draught @ BBF13. Pours clear pale golden with small white head. Clear aroma of hops and yeast with a distinct note of paper. Sweetish, estery flavour with touches of hops and a clear paperlike finish. Not bad, just anonymous and rather standardlike.

Decent clean crisp refreshing kolsch. Great for summer. Lemony, slightly pungent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
