Lasting fine foamy head, velvety on a transparent yellow color body. The smell shows light sweet notes of malt with hints of straw and litchi. The taste was refined and balanced. Malty without really getting annoyingly grainy, sweet but not excessively. Some biscuity notes of vanilla and anise. A light caramel aspect. Mouthfeel was quite convincing. Light grassy straw like notes of hops, balanced with a fine and round maltiness. Slighty creamy and soft. Enjoyable and drinkable. Clean but not dry. The carbonation slightly but enjoyably stimulates the tongue.

In the Peter's Brauhaus, this Kolsch is poured into dainty .2 liter glasses from the barrel. Light gold with a foamy off-head. Hops in the nose complement the hard water aroma. Hops dominate the crisp and slightly sweetish flavor. Quite round with a lingering hop aftertaste. By far the best Kolsch I have drunk. According to the barkeeper in response to my comment concerning the size of the pour, "Yes a small glass, but always fresh and cold."

This is served in a small .2L tall narrow glass which is the standard Kölsch glass. It was the first time I had actually had a Kölsch in the proper glass. It had a light golden crystal clear body with a small white head. The smell is light with a slight crispness. The taste is very similar with a good crispness from hop bitterness and a hop flavor that follows afterward. It is very light bodied and a good summer drinker. I don't know if I could imagine drinking this in the cold though.

200 ml. draft @ Peters Brauhaus. Clear golden with a creamy head, standard look. Smell is a touch grainier than the Sion I tried before but still pretty smooth, sweetish yeast, hay, light white grapes. Taste is also a small touch grainier with sweetish yeast, hay, very faint corn & white grapes, touch sugar & sweet bread, light hops. Faintly grainy body but overall pretty smooth, creamy. Quite enjoyed it, easy to drink, yummy, no unwanted off-flavours, lovely Kölsch.

I had a 0.2 liter glass of this at the beergarden in front of the brauhaus in Cologne, while hopping from place to place to try as many Kolsches as possible. Based on this unique somewhat side-by-side tasting, I hoped to develop a ranking of which ones are best.

Peter's was a sleeper hit for all of us. It started with proper appearance, pale golden color, clear, with a thin pillow of white foam. The aroma was muted but included the musty funk that I really crave from the style. Without this component how would you know you've got a Kolsch instead of a bland lager? Peter's was really good in that regard, tasty and among my favorites.

In my opinion Peter's is in the upper echelon of the style. Still a mild style of beer but I liked it a lot.

A: Pale yellow color with lots of medium large bubbles. Tall white, light head leaves decent lacings.

S: Crisp malt, somewhat dry. Bitter and floral hops are suttle, but very obvious; green apples and lots of citric notes. Some yeast.

T: Very nice balance between the malt and the bitter hops. The floral hops brings rich fruityness; citric. Yeast. Crisp. Some buttery notes in the back.

M: Rather long aftertaste; bitter and sour. Body is light and carbonation is mild. Very smooth.

O: A nice and well crafted Kölsch.

Poured from the growler bottle into a pils style glass.

Classic deep gold and brass colored, crystal clear but a little lifeless. No rising carbonation visible at all if perhaps the most microscopic upon looking close. Thick white fluffy head quite tall, with speckled lacing and a swiss cheese retention. Big head on creation, but settles nicely.

Nose is interesting. Classic bready chewy malts, but there's an interesting faint bubblegum like sweetness to this. Hits the bready malt quality nicely but much of the classic esters seem non existent. Otherwise pretty good.

Interesting palate. Fairly sweet for a Kolsch, with a surprising faint hint of caramel it seems like character. Hints of brown bakery bread toast in the mid palate. Mouthfeel goes from light to a hint of almost brown sugary syrupy caramel.

Overall pretty enjoyably but doesn't really remind me of a Kolsch and the sweetness throws me a bit. It has a very unique flavor though, and would make a very interesting food pairing cause it's so distinct.

From the barrel @ Peters Brauhaus, Köln.
Golden color, very clean, no bubbles, a beautiful white and creamy foam. Good appearance.
Good smell, too, fresh, a touch of malt, and then a delicate but intense hop, and fresh.
Fresh taste, again. Light malt, background hop, good harmony.
Hop in the aftertaste, bitter, good, not too long.
Almost floral and camomile herbal notes.
