Grisza77 (895) - Poznań, - DEC 1, 2015
Jasnozłote, klarowne piwo o średnio obfitej pianie, która szybko redukuje się do zera. Aromat jak piwa sprzed lat, może niezbyt intensywny, ale przyjemny słodowy z lekką nutą chmielową. W smaku lekko wodniste, słodowo-chmielowe. Goryczka niska w stronę średniej, ziołowa. Ogólnie jest to styl do którego mam ogromny sentyment ze względu na Cieszyńskiego Grand Chempiona od którego, wtedy jeszcze nieświadomie rozpocząłem przygodę z czymś innym niż jasne pełne i o ile dobrze pamiętam tamten kolsch był dużo lepszy od obecnie degustowanego, ale i to piwo daje rade, smakuje i pachnie jak pierwsze piwa, które w życiu piłem w latach dziewięćdziesiątych.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 SB Oskarshamn flaska. Ljusbrun med dragning åt gul. Frisk bakåtlutad arom. Svagt humlad, inte bitter eller maltig. Mer helles lager än kölsch. Behaglig men i mitten av allt.

330 ml bottle. Pours light golden with decent foamy head. Grass, metal, hay. Medium to low bitterness. Light bodied, watery texture, dry metallic finish, lively carbonated. Easy going beer.

Bottle from Brewhouse and Kitchen, Bedford. Light gold, extra clear. No head. Metallic and slightly ammonia-laden aroma. Much improved taste with a refreshing grainy sweetness followed by a restrained bitter hop. Not exciting but worth tasting.

On tap. Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium, creamy, long lasting, white head that laces. Mild, sweet aroma of grainy malt. Sweet flavour of grainy malt, corn and grassy hops with a dry, bitter finish. Light body with a watery texture and average carbonation. An ok kolsch.
