Jabic (582) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 4, 2017
Ar: Red apple, melon, and sulfur, with a bit of vanilla and sugar. Ap: Gold and crystal clear; small white head with low retention, leaves a ring of fine bubbles and a splotch of foam in the center. T: Bright pils malt, very slightly toasty; sulfur and red apple; a bit of mineral; noble hops, with spicy and floral notes; chalky and lightly bitter on the finish. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation; finish is dry. O: A fairly clean ale profile; nothing "flawed" with the beer, but it just comes off as dull and sort of flabby.

For the style, perfect. Refreshing, sweet malt and light hoppy notes - pours a golden amber with a lasting white head. Malty with some herbal notes - not a complex style of beer, but a well accomplished iteration of this style.

Kedelig og ordinær som alle andre øl jeg har smagt af denne type. Måske et meget stramt smagskodex i Köln

Very generic and quite bland. Easy to drink though and would be ok in a session.

De geur is niet goed, stinkt. Weinig schuim. De smaak valt mee voor een pils te zijn, best te drinken.

Clear golden with minimal white head. Light but zesty noble hops, sweet malt, some earthy hay notes. Simple but refreshing.

Mindwarp (276) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2017
Pours a clear yellow with no head. Strong malt aroma with some sweetness to it. Lots of flavor, a sweet breadiness. Seems to me the more German Beers and types of Beers I try i write the same thing, only the 5 different rating numbers change. Seems to have a somewhat long after taste going on. Overall another ok beer.

Bottle. Pale Gold in colour. Malty; sweet malts, hint of caramel. Hoppy; grassy, slightly herbal, hops. Fruity; apples or pears. Quite dry in the finish. Delicate, light, fresh, smooth. Refreshing. Easy drinking. (2010-02)

Helles goldgelb, luftiger schaum, getreidig malziger duft, im Geschmack sehr süffig ein kölscher Klassiker der nach dem dritten anfängt richtig zu schmecken

Vom Fass im Brauhaus am Dom und aus der Flasche. Gelbe klare Farbe, stabiler weisser Schaum. Frischer getreidiger Duft. Klassischer Kölsch Geschmack. Muss frisch und kalt getrunken werden.
