3.45/5  rDev -5.2%

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.

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.

S- sweet green apples, grainy
T- grainy, dry, green apple, black pepper, lemon, low bitterness
M- highly carbonated, light body
D- its an ok kolsch, very dry and carbonated, more like a mass produced fizzy lager

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."

3.79/5  rDev +4.1%

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.

I had a 0.2 liter glass of this at the beergarden in front of the brauhaus in Cologne, while hopping from place to place to try as many Kolsches as possible. Based on this unique somewhat side-by-side tasting, I hoped to develop a ranking of which ones are best.

Peter's was a sleeper hit for all of us. It started with proper appearance, pale golden color, clear, with a thin pillow of white foam. The aroma was muted but included the musty funk that I really crave from the style. Without this component how would you know you've got a Kolsch instead of a bland lager? Peter's was really good in that regard, tasty and among my favorites.

In my opinion Peter's is in the upper echelon of the style. Still a mild style of beer but I liked it a lot.

From the barrel @ Peters Brauhaus, Köln.
Golden color, very clean, no bubbles, a beautiful white and creamy foam. Good appearance.
Good smell, too, fresh, a touch of malt, and then a delicate but intense hop, and fresh.
Fresh taste, again. Light malt, background hop, good harmony.
Hop in the aftertaste, bitter, good, not too long.
Almost floral and camomile herbal notes.
