BlackHaddock's rating

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
BlackHaddock (7672) - Shropshire, - NOV 6, 2012
500ml Bottle: best before Feb 2012. Poured into a UK pint sleeve @ home on 6th Nov 2012. Kölsch has never been, nor will be a favourate style of mine and bottled versions are not as fresh or clean as draught ones in the city: this bottle hasn’t changed my mind. Kölsch is just to delicate for my palate, I struggle to find the ’niceties’ others claim to pick up. Anyway here’s my thoughts. Pours a true golden colour: bright and clear. the full snow white head soon became a thin collar and a ’will o the wisp’ thought. Grassy, grainy nose and feel to the taste, add mild hints of hop and you’ve got the smell. Taste wise it is fairly bland, maltier than the aroma suggests, the grains and grassiness on level terms with the buscuity malts, it does have a semi-bitter finish as the hops kick in, but there is no real depth to anything. Well carbonated and fairly refreshing: not a winters day beer, but I bet it tastes a lot better in the brewpub when really fresh. Scores come out as average, this doesn’t stand out as a great example of the style, nor does it let the style down.

0,5l Flasche. Goldgelbes klares Kölsch, luftiger weisser Schaum. Grasiger Getreideduft. Etwas metallisch im Antrunk. Dann typisches Kölsch. Schnell weg im Abgang.

Danke an drnosha .Goldgelb schöner schaum, klassischer Kölsch duft doch zunehmend würzig, schaler Geschmack leichter hopfen leicht getreidig, ok aber es gibt deutlich bessere Kölsch

Bin im allgemeinen kein großer Kölsch Fan und auch dieses schmeckt in seiner Gesamtheit durchschnittlich. Wie ein typisches Kölsch halt. Von meinem Baby aus Kölle. Thanx & Knutschis. ICH LIEBE DICH!!!!!!!

Einmaliger Name - schwer zu bekommen in Köln, dabei ist es ein wirklich gutes Kölsch. Golden, erfrischend, gut ausbalanciert.
