4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

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.

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...

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