look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

This beer is a wonderful example or a traditional Kolsch.

Appearance: It is a golden blonde with a small head that dissipates quickly. The head does not leave any lace. The carbonation is apparent and pretty.

Aroma: This Kolsch has a sweet malt aroma that reminds me of fresh bread. There is also a light flora smell that complements the breadiness.

Taste: It is a very clean beer. Initially, a biscuity flavor hits the tongue which is complemented by the floral tones. This combination produces a balanced taste. The ample carbonation leaves the tongue feeling pretty clean and ready for a second sip. The finish is dry with light bread tones that linger.

Overall: This beer is refreshing and simply delightful. It is a wonderful, relaxing drinking beer.

Serving type: bottle

4.44/5  rDev +15%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass.

Appearence: pours gold in color. Crystal clear. White head that settles down to half a finger and leaves no lacing. Pretty much exactly what you expect from the style.

Nose: bright and perfume-like, floral, citrus notes, but floral is what really shines through.

Taste: a faint breadiness that is overtaken immediately by the floral notes you get on the nose. This beer tastes how it smells. And that is a good thing. Finish is dry and extremely clean.

Mouthfeel: very light on the pallet. Extremely clean on the finish. Flavor is not subtle, but it doesn't linger due to the dry finish.

Overall: it's a more or less perfect example of the style. Kolsch beers are obviously fairly limited in scope. They do what they do and do it well. Pretty much the perfect session beer.

Serving type: bottle
