3.58/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Light crisp and superficially like a pale lager this beer seems to be the poster child for subtlety and delicacy. Problem is that with these I usually also expect a degree of complexity which I'm afraid I just don't find here.
This beer gives quite a thin head which leaves some wispy lacing on the side of the glass but its just too gassy for me to really like it. There is also some very fine lingering hoppiness to be found but this takes far too much effort from what should be an easy drinking sociable beer.
It's not bad really. No turkey. But it could certainly do with some stuffing.

4.01/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

500 ml bottle was poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a nice billowy white head that has reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up though the glass. Looks awesome.

Smell: Bready and sweet pilsner malts followed by grassy Bavarian hops. Pretty standard and traditional smelling.

Taste: Nice chewy and sweet notes from the pilsner malts with some grassy notes and slight bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, light, chewy, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Never seen this before here and Boston. For a kolsch style from the town it originated in, this beer is traditional and classic. I will be getting more in the future.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Back label says 19613, not sure how to interpret... 196th day of 2013 maybe.

Served in an 0,4l OMB stange (thanks Wil). Pours a bright straw gold with plenty of rising carb trails. The head fluffs up and rises above the rim of the glass like a soufflé. Dense halo of lacing collects around the top of the glass. Skim breaks after 15 minutes or so.

Aroma is clean and bready, mellow malt and delicate yeast notes.

Taste is clean and similarly malty, buttered biscuits, dough, dried grass, and some white grape character from the Kölsch yeast. Feel is crisp and the body is supple, very easy to drink with a dry aftertaste. Overall this was a good Kölsch, would try again, and look for a fresher date on the bottle.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but the flavors are a bit too mild in my opinion.
