3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 bottle poured into Leffe chalice. Golden colour, small head which didn’t hang around long, kept some lacing, clear. Aroma combined Chardonay grape with a really fresh bitter hoppy North German Pils aroma. Tasted Chardonay grape, fruits, had a light sourness. Finsh was bitter. Well carbonated which gave it a coarse edge, body was thick for the fairly light ABV. Had the fell of Pils mixed with Sekt which is what happens in parts of Germany.

Leaves the pallet rather dry, bit minerally as well as some banana. Def german.

several 0.2 draught @ Gaffel am Dom, Cologne (April 22, 2017). Apperance is as defined by Kölsch Konvention - golden, clear and big head. This is less fruity and more hoppy than the the competitors. Very good for a session beer and quite easy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I bought this bottle in one German shop in Paris, Porte Saint-Martin. I drank tonight after a long trip from Italy. This bottle had a limit in june 2017. The body is yellow and gold, thin head, regular balance. The taste is classical, I could say that it is a lager with a better quality. The taste is malty, bready, fruity at the final, metalic side, a bit watery but there is a side of dryness at the beginning, not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light gold body with a nice one inch frothy white head. The nose is mostly pale malt with a light hint of noble hops and a slight metallic note. The flavor is pretty similar, a little on the sweeter side with a slight cereal grain note on the finish. Very light bitterness, and light bready maltiness. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Decent beer, better than many American attempts at the style.
