look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

500ml bottle poured into a pint glass

Look: Looks like a pilsner - clear, golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Good retention, some lacing.

Smell: Very clean, almost clinical and very German. Good balance of hops and grain, with more of a bias towards the latter. Hints of citrus, herbs and cut grass. Quite floral too.

Taste: Much like the smell - very clean and refreshing. The hop character comes through a bit more, but there are also hints of grain and floral notes. For something with five ingredients, the flavour has quite a bit going for it.

Feel: Quite light, as its appearance might suggest and smooth with it - it lacks the astringence that some German beers have. Even so, it has a good mouthfeel and goes down very nicely indeed. Would be a superb summer drink.

Overall: Kölsch is a new style for me, and I have to say I'm rather impressed - it's different enough from a lot of German lagers to make it seeking out. I can certainly envisage myself trying more beers in this style. Recommended.

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.
