Bottle- pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a good head that fades to some lacing. Fairly mild aroma of citrus, malt sweetness and grain. Taste of some malt sweetness with a bit of fruit and spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, smooth with just a bit of crispness and somewhat refreshing although a bit bland. A drinkable non-offensive offering for the style.
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 On keg at The Australian Hotel, The Rocks, Sydney. Pours lightly hazed pale golden with a white head. Aroma of dough, cereal malts, light citrus. Taste is light bitter with biscuits malts & citrus, mainly lemon. Light to medium body, moderate carb. Dry light bitter finish KansaiBeerLvrs (5500) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2017
Another of my gifts from Australia:
4 Pines Brewing Kölsch 4.5%
A somewhat cloudy gold with a fizzy white head. A honey rich bready aroma. The dry light body adds to the flavors of honey, oats and wild fruits from the fields. It evokes a summer breeze. Very pleasant.

From bottle in footed pilsner. Pours clear deep golden w/nice frothy head and modest citrus aroma. Taste is let down a bit by the finish, the bitterness seems a bit stale MrTipple (6952) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2017

Honestly not a bad beer, but definitely nothing to write home about. It's refreshing and a good style but was expecting a bit more macca147 (736) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2017
On tap. Pours a pale yellow gold with a white head. Aroma: Malt, grass, mild citrus and earthy notes. Taste: Biscuity malt, mild citrus, mild caramel malt flavours. Very basic flavour balance, even by Kolsch standards. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Easy to drink, but not interesting or flavoursome. danjs5 (357) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2017 500ml bottle. Pours clear straw with big frothy head. Slight malty citris aroma and flavour. Some earthy biscuity notes. Fairly subtle, clean and simple with crispness. Refreshing and pleasant. k0mpsa (3160) - Tuusula, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2017
