Currently downing a few glasses on Saturday 11 November, the first day of Carnival here in Köln. As expected, an absolute shit show. Everyone is in a costume except me. Pretty standard light beer, goes down easy. A bit sharper and drier than most beers of this style. €9.20 for four 0.2l pours, not bad in late 2023 during a big festival. Certainly not the best in Köln but does the trick.

330 ml bottle
Served in an oversized, stemless, wine glass

This beer pours a brilliant golden hue and is topped with less than an inch of tan head that leaves spotty lacing.

Light citrus, grain, and grass aromas

It has a fruity and citrus flavor upfront. Grain and grass in the middle. Somewhat of a lemony finish.

This bodied with a watery mouthfeel

Decent beer

L: straw gold with a big white head

S: more to this than the taste. Citrus and kitchen garden herbs with a touch of yeast.

T: grassy and slatey but a bit thin honestly.

F: good carbonation, crisp

O: just not enough complexity or depth for me. To be fair, it's easy drinking and well-made.

A great kolsh selection and what introduced me to German beer. My life has never been the same…and my wallet certainly knows it. The Germans produce some great beer! I maybe a little biased as it was my first but this is my favorite Kolsh.

poured from a 500mL candy cane can into a 2nd shift “you deserve this!” stang. pours a fairly clear golden “beer” color with a three finger soapy white foam head and plenty of bubbles rising from bottom to top. you gotta love that kolsch aroma - more fruity / herbal than your typical lager but still has some mineral quality to it. taste follows with a smooth and fairly thick mouthfeel. this is an excellent kolsch. really easy drinking and to me leans closer to the lager side of things, which i prefer in this hybrid style (and in beer in general).
