look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Date: 9/28/14
Location: Halftime Mamaroneck
Draught/Bottle: Bottle
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Straw to a light yellow/gold in color. The beer allows a lot of light in and it is not difficult to see through. No haze. Modestly carbonated white head. No cling.
Aroma: Pils malts start us of with earthy to grassy aromas. Little yeast smell that is very clean. Just a touch of a buttery to apple aroma.
Taste: The Pils malts are again giving off that earthy to grassy aroma. With a touch of apples/butter. The yeast is smooth. A hint of hops on the apples to pears side. Moderate hop bitterness in the finish. What strikes me is how soft all the flavors are. Nothing in the beer is very strong.
Mouthfeel: Light to light Medium body. Medium carbonation. A little hop tartness from the finish is really the only sensation that stays with me throughout the finish otherwise all the soft feelings dissipate quickly.

A: Straw and crisply filtered with no carbonation. The 3 fingers of fizzy white head, fade relatively fast.

S: Malt forward, a little crisp white wine, vinous quality, fermenting green hay, an umami quality like shitake mushrooms.

T: Malty, clean linen, a touch of banana, then a very dry chemical of paper mill quality, an acrid slight bitter taste with a hint of sour lemon juice.

M: Not the best Kolsch I’ve had, but happy to find the style in Thailand just the same. Lacking in the white wine quality, perhaps this one is slightly old and losing its touch. I’ve had some of the best Kolsches around, and some good American copies, but this isn’t the most awesome, but it’s the style, so I’m happy. Drank in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Sept 27th, 2014.

Out of a bottle while hanging out in Cologne. Pours clear golden with nearly no head. Aroma of hay, light pale malt sweetness, unpleasant Kolsch aroma. Flavor follows the aroma with a slightly dirty finish, though I found it a bit cleaner than the Paffgen I had earlier today. Light bodied of course, goes down easy enough, medium carbonation. Meh.

Crisp and refreshing with that distinct kölsch flavor.

0,5 l bottle into a plastic pint after sauna. Beautiful straw color with a two finger white head and effervescent bubbling. Somewhat sweet floral smell with a hint of fresh grass. Crisp taste of grainy malts with notes of apple and grassy hops. Very balanced and drinkable. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Overall a really pleasant beer after a hot day and sauna. Didn't last long in the pint and left me wanting another.
