   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 6/20
tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2015 Bottle: The most un-Kolsch-like Kolsch in existence. Thick, murky copper color with a beige-tan head. What? Mild fruity sourness in the aroma, cherries, lemons, grapes. Grainy, and filled with some sweet malts somewhere between toasted bread and light caramel. Initial tartness twinge on the palate - lots of apples, cherries, and big-time plum. Staunch bitterness is offset by an earthy, malty sweetness; biscuits, toasted bread, caramel. Surprisingly "boozy" feeling for only 5.5% ABV with a pretty heavy and sticky mouth feel. This beer wasn’t god awful, but it wasn’t good, either. Not to mention, it resembles a Kolsch in almost no way... Poor attempt by Dark Horse.

jamaty (2080) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Color miel / té. Espuma contenida. Aroma malteado y a levadura, pero también algo lupulado, cítrico. Buen cuerpo. Supercremosa en boca. Agradable sabor malteado, dulce caramelo, compensado con un tono licórico final que recuerda whisky de barrica… Merece una prueba, aunque se va haciendo dura con los tragos...

Taboada (1104) - Compostela (Galiza), - OCT 28, 2014
12oz bottle tasted on the 27/10/2014. Dark hazy orange colour with a minimal white head. Aroma of malts, fruit and caramel. Taste is sweet at the begining with citrus fruits, caramel and sugar. Aftertaste is no intense and has no rock and roll. The label is horrible. Next one please!

Dogbrick (12466) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Clear copper color with a medium thick off-white head that recedes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, toffee and earthy hops. The finish is mildly bitter with a hoppy and fruity aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

angel77 (2925) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 13, 2014
Botella de 33 cl de cervezalandia. 13-03-2014. En el momento. Color anaranjado bastante oscuro y turbio. Aromas dulces y bastante maltosos. Cuerpo medio con 5.5 vol fácil de beber. Sabores maltosos y algo dulces, ligeramente amargos al final. Sin mucho interés ni grandes sobresaltos.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2014
This "Polish Style Kolsch Ale" seemed more like an Altbier to me, but I won’t quibble because it was enjoyable. It had a light brownish amber body with a modest creamy head and some slippery lace. The aroma had woody dry malt and toast. It tasted of crisp toast with a dry earthy bitterness and a touch of wood. Simple yet tasty.

Beerman6686 (6570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2014
This one poured a lighter blonde color with a white head. Aroma was of grass, pale grain, sugar, and glue. Flavor was similar, almost butterscotchy, light grassy hops and stale pale malt.

Lowenbrau (3891) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 26, 2013
33cl bottle @Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. Malty, caramel and fruity aromas. Pours hazy amber with little vanishing off-white head, no lacing. Medium body, oily-silky texture, average to soft carbonation. Taste is fruity, caramel, sweet. Sticky palate. Quite nice and enjoyable, but nothing to do with a kölsch.

Nuffield (4127) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2013
This isn’t awe-inspiring but it isn’t bad either. Pours dark amber/wooden without much head. Multiple flavor dimensions, suggesting caramel and then some raisin, bread, and grass. Obviously Germanic hopping. A touch of sweetness, some richness and more warmth than expected from 5.5% alcohol. Interesting anyway. Bottle.
