In Bogota I had a chance to visit Palos De Moguer bar and try the Colon beers they have on tap. The first one I had was the Colon Light and I thought is was pretty good. I see why now....BA has tagged it a Kolsch...not a light. The appearance is pale yellow with decent head. The smell had citrus and grain. The taste was not bad....had a hoppy to start then grain. The beer came off the pallet clean. Was a very smooth and easy drinking beer...great for summer.

Bottle smell is sweet and slightly fuity. Pours to a pale bright yellow with a two finger head that recedes to a 1/4 inch head. Bubbles stream from the bottom like a TV beer. Taste is very light. Lots of floral hop notes, only slightly bitter. Crisp and very refreshing. Mouthfeel is thin but not watery. For an AC of 5% you'd never know in a beer this light. On the mark for the style. I could drink this beer all day long. This mocks any BMC light beer.

I took the chance to re-review this beer this year because of the recent image change Palos de Moguer has gone through.

Although i'm still not too amazed at their beers, i do feel they have improved considerably.

I acquired this 'Light' at a market in Bogota. Pour is a very bright and shiny golden hue with a clean crisp white head which fades fairly quickly. quite carbonnated.

Smell is dominantly hoppy. Grassy taste, a bit watery but i guess it's the norm for koelsches and i've started this year trying to accept rather than reject that german gender. subtle malty metallic taste afterwards overwhelmed by a 'green' hoppy feel. carbonation overtakes and the overall experience is short.

It's an alright beer which can be consumed regularly. not my regular, but it's not too shabby.
