Had it on tap at Swans Market (Rochester, N Y) and really enjoyed it, so I was disappointeed in this 500 ml bottle from Beers of the World. Went flat quickly, slight cereal small, blah taste. Did i get an old bottle? Will try again some other time bc i know this is normally a high rated Kolsch.

Good Kolsch. Not as good as Fruh, but still quite enjoyable. Here goes:

A: Clear, golden color. Head is initially substantial, but it recedes quickly and leaves no lacing. Few bubbles in the body.

S: Somewhat fruity; also somewhat of a banana-bread-like smell. Overall, though, it's quite mild. I can't detect any definitive flavors.

T: Fruity with some yeasty bread notes. Wheat and some cereal grains complement the flavor profile. Herbal flavors also lend some spiciness, too.

F: Loved it.

O: A good brew. Not as good as Fruh, but would easily have again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours with a floral, slightly sour aroma and short head that quickly fades. This brew is copper colored and has a mild, but sharp carbination. Flavors of fruity hops and vanilla push forward with a bitter, peppery finish

No idea when this was canned, stamp reads:
L17 254 12:17

The pour is a darkish gold, with a small amount of frothy white head that hangs around for a second and then quickly retreats back into the body of the beer. No lace.

The nose gives off a lot of coriander and bread , not unpleasant but with a distinctly Belgian quality (although it’s German), but is predominantly sweet and lightly fruity.

The sweetness continues in the flavors, again bready and lightly fruity. The coriander returns as well, albeit not as strong as on the nose. You can tell this has been sitting in the can for a bit too long, with a lightly earthy, somewhat metallic quality. It’s not necessarily unpleasant if you’re not looking for it, but it is definitely noticeable.

The mouthfeel is fine, medium bodied and weighty, with a crisp, smooth feel to it. Undoubtedly heavy after your second or third.

500ml bottle. Clear golden color with a half finger of white head. Smells of straw. Light prickly feel. Tastes of grassy hops, spice, with a little malty sweetness. A classic, refreshing and very drinkable.

I don’t know, you know? Like, this beer is so average, Raul don’t even want to write a review. But nah, I got this. It’s clean - like my baby mama. It’s smooth - like Raul. But there is this lingering sweetness that’s just there. Like a booger needed to be picked, that sweetness is just hanging there, unwanted. Like ketchup on a hot dog.

Raul won’t be back.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle no visible code for freshness
Pours out a clear, clean straw gold with a 1/2" white head that has very good retention. Spotty lace.
Soft pilsner malt aromas, hay/grass hops.
Lightly grainy malt, bready flavors. Grassy hops that linger for a bit...touch of spice. Sweetness apparent late that isn't a good thing for me.
Soft mouthfeel, low to mid carbonation. Thin body. Decent length finish.
Good not great.

Tastes Great, smells like straight farts. Almost no head. Piss yellow. Carbonated and warms the throat.

Pale gold with vibrant carbonation bubbles erupting from the depths. There's a fingernail of eggshell. Moderate lacing. The aroma is of gentle, grassy hops. I'm tasting those grassy German hops and pale crackery malt. The mouth is crisp, smooth, and refreshing.

500ml bottle. Pours a nice dense head with alright lacing. For a bottle from Germany, the beer looks and still taste really nice. Before I knew what it was I compared it to an American craft kolsh and the extra hop in the American brew lost me.

Having on-tap at the Sacseheim. Served in a 1/2 litre mug, this beer draws a clear, medium golden color with lots of streams of little bubbles fairly rapidly and continuously rising to the beer’s surface and a nice white head an inch thick when first drawn and served. Settles to a very thick ring lining the inside of the glass along with big cluster swirls of a film layer of foam and good lacing. Aromas of some grainy, bready, herbal malts with a slight bit of wheat and some light hops. The taste is pretty much the same, with bready, slightly grainy and herbal malts along with a bit of wheat and some citrus hops that give a bit of bitterness. Well balanced flavor profile overall. Has a fairly crisp, yet smooth and slightly frothy, medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish and crisp aftertaste. A very refreshing beer on this hot summer day, and spot on for the style.

L- foamy two inch whitish head. Bright Holden coloured

S - delicious looking- light, flowery hoppiness , with a tiny sweetish malt background

T - balanced, tasty - a slight spicy hop bite hits you first, then quickly turns into a pleasantly sweet note followed by another small spicy hop.

F - refreshing - slightly light but still somewhat creamy with a teeny carbonated evervescence rolling over the tongue

O - Great beer! I want this in a 12 ounce can and then in 12 packs. This is a tasty yet refreshing brew that will go great with any food. This could be a daily go to beer. Outstanding!
