2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 35,5 cl) An American Kölsch, that’s a first time for me, but actually this beer is not that far the German original. Straw golden in colour, light and refreshing with a soft malty sweetness and only a hint of hops. Good choice as a summer thirst quencher.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours light, clear yellow-gold with a small, white head. There is a nice malty aroma with notes of bread and fruit. Flavor begins sweet and biscuity along with some lemon and faint bitters. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet but very crisp and clean. This is a solid beer. It’s a bummer to see the Kolsch style in general get discounted so heavily.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2008 Had this several years ago and didn’t think much of it. Now, the re-rate. Bright golden colour with a light head. Orangey-apricotty nose. Balanced palate with fresh orangey hop and melon and a backbone of breadcrusty malts. Clean, refreshing, a nice brunch beer.

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Thanks for the tick! Pours light gold with a large fluffy white head. Nice clean smell of grassy hop. Medium minus body with light, creamy carbonation. It’s thinnish. It’s very mildly fruity, finishing with mild noble hop bitter. Goes down easy.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a clear yellow gold with a small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a sweet wheat malt and honey. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet malt with a nice crisp finish. Easy to drink, a good kolsch from Harpoon.
