Delicately honeyed pils malts dominate this quaffable Kölsch, as whispering citrusy accents peer through once in a while.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A healthy head of foam caps the clear golden.
-The finish is very quiet; perhaps not this beer’s best feature.
-This finish, coupled with the slick mouthfeel, makes for extremely high drinkability, especially when yet another freshly-served, cool glass is set upon your table.
-The effervescent natural carbonation is perfect for the moderate level of residual sugars.
-Hops are practically absent in this brew, appearing in herbal and citrusy form only if you want to look for them

IMHO The best of all Koelschs (and I've tried almost all of them). Rich and full taste. It looks a bit stale, but with every sip you taste that it is brewed the old-fashioned way. One of the few Koelschs that is brewed with real hops instead of extract. Above that, the Malzmuehle brewery has its own well, which is quite rare, too. jokazi (8) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2005 does not count
Great Kolsch ! Sweet body, light but true to style, pleasant hops and flower taste.
