On Tap at the the Brauerei Mahlzmuhle in Koeln.
Along with Paffgen, one of the two most distinctive and enjoyable Kolschs. Where Paffgen is hoppier, spicier; Muhlen Kolsch leans toward malt character.
A twinge of malt in the body. Undertone of anise or perhaps softer; fennel. Pale yellow with a glint of copper.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 l bottle from a Kiosk, best before June 2017. Clear, golden yellow with a thin, frothy, almost stable, white head. Faint, sweetish, slightly grainy and a bit grassy aroma of grains and straw. Sweetish, slightly bitter, quite grassy and minimally fruity taste of lots of straw, grains and slight hints of citrus, followed by a short, moderately bitter, grassy, a bit dry and slightly metallic finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite okay, very quaffable, might be better from tap though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle via trade with Koelschtrinker. Thank you!
Looks: Clear light golden colour; Three-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with notable small carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant, slightly pungent strong Lager malt, with strong yellow fruits, very light dark fruits, caramel, light tartness, floral, sugar, biscuits, lemon and light grass.
Taste: Close to light sweet fair Lager malt, with moderate wheat, light tartness, fair yellow fruits, carbo, floral, sugar notes, dry bread, very light lemon and thin bitter grassy hops.
Body: Close to light body. Watery and quite crisp palate.
Mouth Feel: Good Lager maltyness in a wheat-thinned background. Mouthful of light yellow fruits bounded by light tartness. Flowery and low sweetness, dry bready with light lemon to round. Crisp and nice!
Hoppiness: Lemon and light grass in nose, same in taste but a lot lighter; Bitterness is low for an abrupt, low astringent wheaty malty finish.
After Taste: Fairly dry. Crisp and quite easy to mouth.
Comments: Finally, got to taste a real Koelsch from one of Cologne’s established brew pub. Its smell and taste has pretty vibrant yellow fruitness, and the Lager chrarcter cannot be buried by a smooth wheatyness. Crisp and pretty straight forward, with the Ale’s niceness works pretty well with the well-round Lager base. I bet it’ll taste even better on taps. Very neat Koelsch!
