ABV 4,8%.
Can of 500 ml, bought on a recent excursion to Germany. At first I thought Kolsch was also part of the beers name, now I see it's a style of beer. Poured in a sort of Kolsch type of glass.
Three fingers of white, thick head, with very good retention but not much lacing left behind. At first great activity in the glass, stops almost as soon as the head disappears. Golden yellow in colour.
Pleasant aroma of hops, mixed with a malty smell, albeit faint.
Sweet and malty flavour at first, turns into a slighty bitter and hoppy aftertaste.
Thin on the body, low carbonation and dry on the palate.

It's the first time I drink this style, and I didn't find it much different than a lager, also, since it's the first time, I don't have anything to compare it to. Drinkability was high, and it was going down very easily.

The beer is clear straw colored, with a white head leaving some lacing. Small curtains.

Fruity aromas, ripe apples, some vegetables and dough. Rather pleasant.

Starting sweet white bread, then some lemon and apple juice, a tart peel finish.

Little carbonation, small soft bubbles, a soft and smooth texture, a slightly dry finish.

A not-to-bad Kölsch.
