Notes / Commercial Description:
Der ganze Stolz der Malzmühle ist natürlich das unverwechselbare Mühlen Kölsch. Es gehört zu den ältesten und beliebtesten Kölschsorten der Domstadt.

Mühlen Kölsch wird seit 1858 im Stammhaus der Brauerei zur Malzmühle am Heumarkt auf traditionelle Art und Weise in Handarbeit gebraut und abgefüllt. Zum Einsatz kommen ausschließlich natürliche Rohstoffe bester Qualität – Gersten- und in einem geringeren Anteil Weizenmalz, hochwertiger Aromahopfen, Brunnenwasser und Hefe.

Die Kombination der Zutaten und die Herstellung nach altem Familienrezept verleiht unserem Mühlen Kölsch seinen typischen und charakteristischen kräftigen, malzigen und vollen Geschmack.

Definitely my favourite Kolsch- an opinion shared by my aussie brother in law who had spent 10 years living in Koln.

I've had both on tap at their brew house in Koln city centre, and on bottle. Scores based on tap.

So:

Served in 200ml cylindrical glasses straight from the barrel. Pleasingly sparkling and clear with about 2cm of head when the glass is plonked down in front of you.

Best thing about it is the freshness- in nose and in mouth.

it is currently the basis of my beer fridge as well- brought a crate of the (brown glass) 500ml bottles back from our last visit (24 bottles for €18!) and am slowly working my way through them.
For the bottles, i'd probably mark down the smell just by one mark- naturally, not as fresh from the bottle and the beer loses it's extra special quality just a litte bit.

On-tap at the brewery itself. On to the beer:

A thick creamy head tops this golden colored beer, and adding to the experience is a head which retains very well. The nose is soft and appealing, bringing the smell of milled malt and a drop of honey.

Something about the taste is beautiful. Perhaps it helps that I had been drinking a lot of different kolsch during my short stay in Cologne, because this one stands out. It's clean and crisp throughout, and birngs subtle honey, floral, and grape flavors. The bitterness brought to the table is clean, adding the final touch to this beauty.

A very fine kolsch that is very easy to drink. I helped myself to several glasses and had forgotten that the brewery also served two other beers.

This is by far my favorite kolsch beer and that says a lot because kolsch is also my favorite beer style. Hard to find except if you're lucky enough to be strolling around the beautiful Cologne, Germany. Then you can just look around and try their wonderful local beers, Muhlen, Paffgen and Reissdorf, in that order. You won't be disappointed.

Delicious anytime. Beautiful taste, easy to drink, crisp and perfect, the godess of the kolsch beers. Magic and perfection in a bottle. Don't miss it out. Enjoy! :)

33 cl bottel poured into my tulip glass

Pours clear,pale golden with a small white head. Grainy aroma. Rather sweet and grainy flavours, some piney hop as well. A hint of lemon. Standard Kölsch in my opinion. Not much going on , to watery , to soft , it's just not my style / kind of thing i guess
