Leightons 20K at his posh new gaff! Thanks to Dave and Matteo. Hazy deep amber beer, small pale tan head. Palate is airy and has modest fine carbonation. Mild vinegar and tangy fruits. A little malt sweetness provides some relief. Bare whisper of vanilla. Bitterish finish. Not digging the vinegar here.

Koelschtrinker (19468) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 17, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 ZBF2007: Saurer Kirschgeruch. Suerlicher Antrunk, leicht alkoholischer Mittelteil. Das Bier schwankt immer wieder zwischen eiem suerlichen und einem eher slichen Kirscharoma. So auch im kirschig-malzigen Nachgeschmack, in dem der Hopfen kratzig erscheint.
