Grumpelmies (290) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2016
Straight from the bottle walking on the streets of Cologne. Smells and tastes of hops, peaches, apricots, yeast and lemons. Very refreshing on a hot summer day. I’ve honestly got no idea what this is supposed to be. Feels like a hybrid of Kölsch, modern-type big industry Kellerbier and Pale Ale. Gaffel being not one of my favourite breweries from Cologne I had very low expectations but I really liked it.

Hazy golden with little white head. Aroma is aroma hops (citra apparently), tropic fruits, some butter and cream. Taste is well rounded everything with a foremost fruity sour note. Light, easy drinkable. Not bad.
