Koelschtrinker (20403) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Getestet beim LCRBM
Säuerlicher Antrunk, etwas hopfig, etwas herb. Später steht der Hopfen etwas mehr im Vordergrund, ein würziger Unterton ist gerade noch zu erkennen. Wässrig.

Deep golden-amber beer. The aroma is quite strange with a mix of grassy/herbal hoppiness that seems like it’s gone off. Quite european with mostly noble hops that have gone a little bit cheesey. A light pale malt backbone that also comes across sort of oxidized. Light bitterness with a lingering dustiness. I suspect this bottle was once better, but it seems pretty poor to me. notalush (5878) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Thanks to JoeMcPhee for sharing - cloudy golden ale, with a soapy, lasting lace - very mellow, earthy, musty aroma, with some stale hops kicking around in the back - opens earthy and tart, with a tiny bit of funk - some grassy but stale hops (but given the nature of the other characteristics, I believe this is intentional - this beer is MEANT to taste old) - a bit of grain/bread late - some cork and lingering earthiness - tastes like a Parisian basement (that’s not as bad as that sounds). puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle shared by McPhee. Nice, tart, sauerkraut, vegetal aroma, some thyme. Rich, but dry flavor, kind of stinky, a little wild. A good bit of crunchy, fresh euro hops in this, though they’re slightly old. Carbonation and body and nice and mellow. Good stuff here. JoeinDahlem (1521) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2008
Light and refreshing ale with nice citrus-hop aroma. Bottle from Cave a Bulles in Paris. Pours hazy golden-orange with white lacy head. Citrus-hop nose is more lemon than grapefruit, a touch floral. Tastes bitter but not extreme, lacking a juicy center and instead going grassy and dry. Love to try it on tap. Nice beer for a hot day.

A Mes rate:
Bottle at LCRBM3. Cloudy dark blonde colour. Floral and grassy and generally hoppy all round with some nice yeasty barnyard notes and a decent bitter finish. Interesting but not amazing. skortila (5873) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2007
3rd LCRBM. Aroma is yeasty/spicy/barnyard and citric. Hazy, yellow coloured with a thin, white head. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter-sour, citric with some hop. Okay. bierkoning (13355) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2007
3rdLCRBM Spicy aroma with citrus. Spicy flavor (cinnamon, laurel). Thin. Citrus aftertaste. Unspectacular, but not bad. Jerre (3391) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2007

Oak and funky barnyard aroma. Cloudy, yellow color, white head, fair lace. Light sweet, light fruity, light bitter. Smells great but the flavors don’t live up to that.
