3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Coop Kvikne. Pours a hazy dark orange, with a small ring of white bubbles. Looks quite still. Aroma is slightly skunky initially. otherwise.. not a whole lot going on. Light fruity notes, not easily recognizable, but some banana-like yeasty fruityness. A slight hint of alcohol. Some light spiciness. Reminds me a bit of a weissen, actually. Flavourwise, it’s very mellow. Very drinkable, but not a whole lot going on. Not a lot of malt sweetness, not a lot of bitterness hops either.. Some citrusy hops in the finish, but not a whole lot. A little watery then. Not a whole lot of carbonation, light bodied. Should have had a little more of everything, but it’s in no way bad.

330ml bottle drunk in the middle of a frozen Prestvannet Lake, Tromso admiring the Northern Lights. Straight from the bottle so no comment on appearance. Aroma of pale malts. Nice kolsch taste, perhaps more crisp and hoppy than expected. Not bad and suited the moment.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow to straw colour, thin head. White bread, citrus and sourness to the nose. Refreshing, well carbonated and bitter. Oily mouthfeel, long aftertaste. Not that familiar with the Kölsch style, so have nothing to compare with.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske delt med Ovesen mens vørteren kjølner: uklar gulbrun med storboblet skum. Krydderpreget aroma. Smak av overmodne bananer, citrus og krydder. Mer smak i denne enn en del andre kölsch jeg har prøvd. Litt underkarbonert, så den blir fort flat, men ettersmaken er allikevel rund og beholder sin personlighet.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Malts, spices, yeast and some citrus notes in the aroma. Pale golden with a white head. Medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Overall not a very interesting experience, it is drinkable, but not something to repeat for me.
