From XXXII, for sale at 1.50€. In Legado de Yuste glass. Watching The Hobbit 3. Too much sweet. Bad aroma, stinky. No foam. Transparent. Do not repeat

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a 20cL stange glass at the brewpub.

A: Crystal-clear and pale-pale yellow. Head soon dissipates, leaving thin lacing. Looks like the worst kind of American macrobrew.

S: Not much smell. Some slightly spicy topnotes with a skunky base smell which isn't offensive. The smell is boring, plain, and practically nonexistent.

T: Doesn't impress me. Very watery. What flavours are present are mostly grain and water. This is the Natty Light of Köln. Middle taste is naught but a holdover from initial grain. Aftertaste is somewhat dry and subtly bitter.

M: It's alright. Carbonation is present. Beer is...beery.

D: Very drinkable, but not recommended. Went down alright with dinner. Can be used as a water substitute.

Pours a bright golden color, with a one finger broad white head to it.

Smells of wheat and some toffee, not much going on as far as the aromas go.

Refreshing with a pleasant crispness, has a high carbonation to it, while remaining very light bodied.

Tastes aqueous, strawy, white bread malts and an uprising toffee sweetness. Noble hops during the mid palate with bright and sweet hay, while hops are fading during the finish.

Very light bodied, not thin yet. Offers enough flavors to remain interesting on the palate.

Bottle picked up on a swing through Koln. Slightly sourish kolsch, fast fading head. Very pale golden color, aroma of malt. Taste is also malt and bread. I was expecting better as I was near the epicenter of this classic style.

On-draught @ Peters Brauhaus in Koln.

Forgettable for a Koln-brewed Kolsch, but enjoyable nonetheless. And highly drinkable in spite of its relative insipidness. Bright malt (Munich malt) profile. Generic floral hop character.

I like it, but would personally prefer many of the other expressions of the style available in Koln.

From Gravity at their biergarten on the Altermarkt into a 0.2l stange.

A- Straw blonde body with 1 finger head that reduces to a thin crown very quickly with next to no lacing.

S- Slight sulphur in the aroma (not a fault), faint pils malt.

T- Faint pils malt with a long dry finish. Hop bitterness doesnt stick around.

M- Moderate carbonation, a little thin.

D- Easy to drink but also easy to forget as flavours albeit are delicate in a kolsch, this one just lacks a bit in the finish.

The beer comes out looking like a kölsch. Golden clear body, big fluffy white head, and leaves some lacing.

The beer has a prominent fruit aroma of pear and apple to go along with the sweet and grainy qualities.

It is light and refreshing. Hits with a little crisp bite there at the swallow. Has a prickly carbonation. A little dry. Flavors of grain, grass and bread.

First time in Cologne! Kolsch from keg/barrel on the bar in a 0.2L stange glass.
Crystal clear pale yellow. No visible carbonation.
Slightly more complex nose - light barley wort with just a hint of sulphury funk.
Mildly flavored and very watery and thirst quenching. Simple and delicious
