This is my first kolsch, and if this is indicative of the style it really looks like I’m not going to be into it. Poured an almost transparent gold color (almost like a malt liquor), with a slightly grainy aroma and thick, rocky head. Taste was very bland, slightly sweet, mostly tasted like a macro...would’nt pick up again.

For the book. Aroma is sweet, funky, corn, earthy hops, slight metallic, unappealing. Appearance is golden, clear, off white head. Taste is earthy hops, metallic, corn, slight funk, it’s a kölsch. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, earthy hop and sweet corn aftertaste. Overall, it’s boring but not undrinkable.

Zlotta (2931) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - APR 26, 2017
0.2 l on tap at ’Pinte’. Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, foamy, stable, white head. Sweetish, grassy-spicy aroma of straw, grains and slightest hints of citrus. Slightly bitter, grassy-spicy and a little fruity taste of grains, straw and hints of citrus, followed by a short, rather bitter, grassy-spicy and slightly metallic finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay!

Bottle. Brilliantly clear, light golden yellow. Fizzy white head, long lasting. Grainy sweet notes in the aroma, light green apple. Slight fruit. Clean flavor, crisp finish. Dry grains, low fruit. restrained bitterness. Smooth. Lovely example.

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

Can at ABV. Pours a clear golden hue with a large white head. A toasty sweet nose. Perfume, light lemons, sweet malty biscuit. Pretty nice. Clean.

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

Flesje gedeeld door Benzai. Goudgeel helder bier. Aroma en smaak iets fruitig en bitter. Weinig nasmaak.

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.
