3.44/5 rDev -3.6%
I've got one in a see through bottle that made me suspicious, and 4,8 ABV. Clear golden colour, head fades away soon but leaves a good lace. Fresh hoppy semll, grainy, citrus and herbs. Medium to light body, feels really good in the tongue. Clean taste is similar to the smell, refreshing, hops, flowers. Very good indeed.

200 ml. draft @ Brauhaus Sion. Pours a clear golden with a creamy white head. Nose is nice, clean, crisp, lightly hoppy, hay, light grass & mellow yeast. Taste is light grass hops, hay, crisps, touch sweeter yeast, faint honey, slightly sweet, faint bread. Very clean, light, absolutely no off-flavours hear. Creamy, flavourful, highly enjoyable, great stuff & overall probably my favourite of the different Kölsch’s I tried in Cologne. Loved it.

On-tap at Sion itself, on to the beer:
Golden colored like any other kolsch and topped with a thick head that's two finger's thick. Good lacing sticks around the glass as the beer is consumed. The aoma is somewhat fruity, adn there's a note of vague pale malt. The maltiness picks up in the beer's taste, where there's a slight grain, a kiss of honeydew and "plain" cereal notes. It's light bodied with carbonation that is somewaht gentle.
Pleasant kolsch from Sion. Good for cooling down during warmer weather.

My 330cl brown bottle claims 4.8% ABV, maybe they've lowered the alcohol content?
Obtained from 'Beers of Europe' and poured into a Kolsch type straight sided glass (from the now closed Privatebrauerei A.Kropf of Kassel).
I've been to Koln many times: almost all before joining BA. Great city with some lovely brewpubs, it's their beer I can't get to grips with. I have always struggled to really enjoy their beers, sadly this bottle is no exception. Only reviewed three from this style before this, but I just don't get Kolsch.
Looks fine in the glass, clean, sparkling and a pale gold in colour, on top a thin yet full white head of bubbly foam.
Cereal smell if pressed to find anything, really it's odourless to the normal human nose.
This Kolsch is a little sweeter than most I've had (years ago I had it fresh in the brewery tap). It still however does nothing for me, it's wet and vaguely alcoholic, it has no flavours or taste other than a slight cereal and hop feel to it. I know it is supposed to be delicate and light in texture, well it certainly is.
I'm trying to find something good to say about it, honest.
OK, it isn't offensive in any way, it's crisp, refreshing and would be fine on a warm summers day with a mega hot curry.

3.4/5 rDev -4.8%
6oz plastic taster at Disney's Wine and Food Festival, German booth.
A: Bright golden yellow, small white head settles very quickly to a tiny ring. No real lacing.
S: Very grainy, lemony citrus, and earthy/spicy hop.
T: Similar to the aroma, but sweeter malt, cracker like, light lemon, slight spice and earthiness. Very clean finish and alcohol is decently hidden.
M: Surprisingly medium body, very nicely done carbonation, and lightly oily on the palate.
O: Not bad. Was expecting worse. Easily drinkable, and went well with the 85+, 85% humidity. I'd drink it again, but don't see it happening anytime soon.

4.13/5 rDev +15.7%
A: Pale straw yellow. Large, fizzy bubbles. The foam is thin and doesn't stay around for long.
S: Fresh, slightly metallic, some hop aroma. Hints of malt and some fruity yeast tones.
T: Clean and crisp. Some sweetness balanced by a distinct and simple bitterness. Small hints of grain. The aftertaste is dry and bitter. Very refreshing.
M: Thin liquid. The liquid behaves a little bit like champagne; it bruises up a little bit in my mouth. As with every other thing in this beer, the mouthfeel is fresh.
O: Deliciously refreshing. One of the best kölsch in the whole Cologne. Perfect for hot summerdays, and I wish the Swedish Systembolaget would import them.
