Tastes likes apples, pears, grapes, honey biscuity malts, tobacco spice, with floral earthy grass. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy with moderate low tingling carbonation.

Appearance: Pours a clear goldenstraw with a very thin head that fades rather quickly; a few dots linger

Smell: Sulfur dominates after the pour but settles in to a grassy tone with hints of apple and honey

Taste: The front end brings apple, green grape and a hint of honey, with a crackery malt element underpinning through the middle; grassy and somewhat sulfury tones build, after the swallow and into the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: I have no idea how old this bottle might be but the beer has held up reasonably well; the mouthfeel could be better but the flavors seem intact

500 ml bottle poured into a pint glass

A- A clear golden yellow with a two finger white head.

S- Good bread, touch of grapes, floral and slightly earthy hops, some Pilsner malts.

T- Sweet bread, hints of light fruits and grapes, touch of honey, hops are floral.

M- Smooth, light to medium body.

O- A tasty Kölsch that I would highly recommend to anyone interested in the style. Nose is more balanced than the taste which is very malt forward. Very easy to drink

From estucerveza. In Bavaria glass. Watching soccer match Spain vs Lichenstein (8-0) Ultradrinkable, with a pleasantly soft malty backbone with a good grassy hop bite. The best kolsch Ive drank with difference

Pint at the Underground.

Pours a pale golden yellow with one finger of white head that leaves amoebic blobs of lace as it recedes.

Smells of grainy pale malt, apple and pear, grape skin, minerals, flowers and cut grass.

Tastes of more crackery malt and orchard fruit, grape skin, faint honey and more floral, grassy hops.

Feels mild and refreshing. Light bodied with gently frothy carbonation. Finishes off-sweet.

Verdict: Highly recommended. Will cool you down.
