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.

500ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.80):
Very light & clear, golden straw with a thumb-sized, bubbly head that's white with a fine texture, lots of visible carbonation and good retention.

Like a lager on the nose with some light, sweet malts a& hints of floral, some grassy hops feature too but the aroma isn't the most pronounced. Plenty of grain, some further sweetness & some bread with touches of yeast in there as well.

Light malts with touches of sweetness coming through & some bread as well. Quite a lot of grain is present, there is some faint floral flavours & fruit with some citrus but again nothing is particularly strong.

The beer is a light bodied, almost thin one with some grain & medium carbonation. It proved quite easy to drink with light bitter finish that is slightly tangy as well.

Very similar to a pale lager in a lot of ways & I wasn't particularly impressed with this one really. It was a drinkable beer & it's always nice to get a new style under my belt but I didn't think it was a great beer really.
