Pours a straw colour, half finger head, some bubbles visible.

Aromas of cut hay husks.

Taste is clean and crisp malt drive true to style

Mouthfeel is light.

.5L, Germany, best by 3/11.

Crystal-clear pale gold with one of the better heads I've seen on a Kölsch in a while: fluffy, good lace.

Aroma is biscuity, clean and lightly earthy.

Flavor is straightforward. This is a very drinkable Kölsch, though the finish could use some work-- bit of wet cardboard. Biscuity malts, minerals, and grassy, almost citrusy hops. Touch metallic in the end. Good carbonation and light, smooth mouthfeel.

This is a decent Kölsch, especially when you get a fresh bottle as I luckily did. Drinkable.

Pours a light golden appearance, with light white head and mild carbonation. Not all that impressive, really.

Smells quite hoppy with very German, grassy hops being dominant if not powerful. Slightly herbal, maybe a hint of coriander but not that much. Fairly simple and underwhelming nose.

Taste is not bad, quite a bit of body, interesting palate profile, almost like a perfect bell curve. It ascends very steadily into a quite rich and nice bitter hoppy flavour. Fairly grassy with a strong malt profile underlying it, overall it's a fairly standard flavour, but its strength is in the way it's delivered. I'd say it's very drinkable, although its flavour is not incredible. Just pleasant.

On tap at the Gilden Haus in Köln. Pours a perfectly transparent gold with a nice white head. Little retention and almost no lacing. Smells of hops and pils up front, with a hint of citric sweetness also. The taste is very similar, with the hops dominating, but a bit of sweet citrus in the background. Very good; more to it than other kölsches. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall a great example of a kölsch; probably my favorite of the 7-8 I've tried.

Serving type: on-tap
