Draught. I don’t know what I was expecting but I’m a bit disappointed to the lack of everything except general lager-ness.

One of the best kölsch in collogne. Beautiful blond color with a pure white head. Hoppy taste with a lot of carbonate.

Bottle; pours clear gold with a white head; aroma of malt with citrus and floral notes; taste is malty and a touch sweet with some citrus hints; finish is dry with a bit of cardboard; not a huge Kölsch guy but this one was alright

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Well it looks the way a Kölsch should...Aroma is malty and earthy. There’s even a hint of noble hops. Damp basement. Taste is grainy, bready, malty, fruity and a little bit spicy. Aftertaste is almost bitter (for a Kölsch anyway). Well carbonated. Süffig as a proper Kölsch should be. Kölsch ain’t never going to be my favourite style but this is one of the better ones and quite good.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Clear golden with little white head. Aroma is soap and oatmeal, some vomit in the background. Taste is carbonation induced sourness, some dust on the tongue, sweet maltiness, more vomit. The finish is artificial sweetness together with plenty vomit and dust. Would be easy to drink if the vomitiness would not make it hard. Thin body. This one will be hard to finish...
