look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

The beer comes out looking like a kölsch. Golden clear body, big fluffy white head, and leaves some lacing.

The beer has a prominent fruit aroma of pear and apple to go along with the sweet and grainy qualities.

It is light and refreshing. Hits with a little crisp bite there at the swallow. Has a prickly carbonation. A little dry. Flavors of grain, grass and bread.

Poured from the growler bottle into a pils style glass.

Classic deep gold and brass colored, crystal clear but a little lifeless. No rising carbonation visible at all if perhaps the most microscopic upon looking close. Thick white fluffy head quite tall, with speckled lacing and a swiss cheese retention. Big head on creation, but settles nicely.

Nose is interesting. Classic bready chewy malts, but there's an interesting faint bubblegum like sweetness to this. Hits the bready malt quality nicely but much of the classic esters seem non existent. Otherwise pretty good.

Interesting palate. Fairly sweet for a Kolsch, with a surprising faint hint of caramel it seems like character. Hints of brown bakery bread toast in the mid palate. Mouthfeel goes from light to a hint of almost brown sugary syrupy caramel.

Overall pretty enjoyably but doesn't really remind me of a Kolsch and the sweetness throws me a bit. It has a very unique flavor though, and would make a very interesting food pairing cause it's so distinct.

Cask at Peters Brauhaus, Köln, Germany

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a finger high white head that slowly fades away. No carbonation is visible in the form of rising bubbles.
S: There is a light aroma of bready malts and grassy hops in the nose.
T: The beer tastes rather malty and has some hints of bitterness from the hops. There is a slight amount of sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and is crisp, dry and very smooth. No carbonation is perceptible.
D: This beer is a little more filling compared to others in the style so it isn't quite as thirst quenching.

200 ml. draft @ Peters Brauhaus. Clear golden with a creamy head, standard look. Smell is a touch grainier than the Sion I tried before but still pretty smooth, sweetish yeast, hay, light white grapes. Taste is also a small touch grainier with sweetish yeast, hay, very faint corn & white grapes, touch sugar & sweet bread, light hops. Faintly grainy body but overall pretty smooth, creamy. Quite enjoyed it, easy to drink, yummy, no unwanted off-flavours, lovely Kölsch.

Lasting fine foamy head, velvety on a transparent yellow color body. The smell shows light sweet notes of malt with hints of straw and litchi. The taste was refined and balanced. Malty without really getting annoyingly grainy, sweet but not excessively. Some biscuity notes of vanilla and anise. A light caramel aspect. Mouthfeel was quite convincing. Light grassy straw like notes of hops, balanced with a fine and round maltiness. Slighty creamy and soft. Enjoyable and drinkable. Clean but not dry. The carbonation slightly but enjoyably stimulates the tongue.

From Gravity at their biergarten on the Altermarkt into a 0.2l stange.

A- Straw blonde body with 1 finger head that reduces to a thin crown very quickly with next to no lacing.

S- Slight sulphur in the aroma (not a fault), faint pils malt.

T- Faint pils malt with a long dry finish. Hop bitterness doesnt stick around.

M- Moderate carbonation, a little thin.

D- Easy to drink but also easy to forget as flavours albeit are delicate in a kolsch, this one just lacks a bit in the finish.

First time in Cologne! Kolsch from keg/barrel on the bar in a 0.2L stange glass.
Crystal clear pale yellow. No visible carbonation.
Slightly more complex nose - light barley wort with just a hint of sulphury funk.
Mildly flavored and very watery and thirst quenching. Simple and delicious

Poured into a 20cL stange glass at the brewpub.

A: Crystal-clear and pale-pale yellow. Head soon dissipates, leaving thin lacing. Looks like the worst kind of American macrobrew.

S: Not much smell. Some slightly spicy topnotes with a skunky base smell which isn't offensive. The smell is boring, plain, and practically nonexistent.

T: Doesn't impress me. Very watery. What flavours are present are mostly grain and water. This is the Natty Light of Köln. Middle taste is naught but a holdover from initial grain. Aftertaste is somewhat dry and subtly bitter.

M: It's alright. Carbonation is present. Beer is...beery.

D: Very drinkable, but not recommended. Went down alright with dinner. Can be used as a water substitute.

In the Peter's Brauhaus, this Kolsch is poured into dainty .2 liter glasses from the barrel. Light gold with a foamy off-head. Hops in the nose complement the hard water aroma. Hops dominate the crisp and slightly sweetish flavor. Quite round with a lingering hop aftertaste. By far the best Kolsch I have drunk. According to the barkeeper in response to my comment concerning the size of the pour, "Yes a small glass, but always fresh and cold."

A: Pale yellow color with lots of medium large bubbles. Tall white, light head leaves decent lacings.

S: Crisp malt, somewhat dry. Bitter and floral hops are suttle, but very obvious; green apples and lots of citric notes. Some yeast.

T: Very nice balance between the malt and the bitter hops. The floral hops brings rich fruityness; citric. Yeast. Crisp. Some buttery notes in the back.

M: Rather long aftertaste; bitter and sour. Body is light and carbonation is mild. Very smooth.

O: A nice and well crafted Kölsch.
