felsenpils (162) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
This is the real deal, a perfect Kölsch. Bright golden color, thick white head, great foam retention, that true Kölsch aroma, full dry taste. For those of you who have never been to the city of Cologne, this is their beer style and Sünner still uses open fermenters to produce a fantastic beer. Do not rate this beer if you are unfamiliar with the style! This beer style is very unique and its nuances take a long time to discern. That wonderful Kölsch aroma from their proprietary yeast strain is unbeatable. A very delicate beer which deserves more recognition outside of Germany.

Zlotta (2505) - Hagen, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2017
0.2 l on tap at ’Sünner im Walfisch’. Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, frothy, stable, white head. Faint, grassy and a bit fruity aroma of grains, straw and hints of citrus. Slightly bitter, quite grassy and a bit fruity taste of straw, some grains and hints of citrus, followed by a short, medium bitter, rather grassy and slightly metallic finish. Thin to medium body, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay!

VertBaconStrips (2357) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - JAN 2, 2017
A buddy emptied his fridge and gave me the beer that was in it. This is one of them. Age unknown - the only one I know is good for sure is the Chimay Blue. 500ml bottle. This has that grainy aroma and bread with a touch of caramel. Taste is same, fairly clean, slight cardboard. Makes me think of the night in Radium with the 5 team pitchers of Mt. Begbie Kolsch...

500ml bottle. Golden colour, some lacing. Aroma is cereal and some citrus fruit. Taste is medium sweet (with noticeable yeast) and light bitter with faint vegetable note on the finish. Quite a good kolsch, very refreshing and drinkable.

Bottle - pours a clear light yellow with a thin white head. That kolsch aroma - cracker biscuit, wheat, straw malt, mild herbaceousness and a whiff of funk. Light body and good solid carbonation.

Tasainen makumaailma, kirkas ja kivasti kupliva. Sopivasti heinää ja makeutta tuomassa ryhtiä.
