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.

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.

C+ / ABOVE AVERAGE

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

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.
