Appearance

The Kölsch pours a brilliantly clear pale gold and is topped by an inch-thick cap of dense white foam that shows modest retention. The reduction doesn’t leave behind any lace or residue while streams of bubbles continuously rise in the glass.

Aroma

The aroma wafts the nose with a scent of coffee beans that are backed by a hint of sweet vanilla.

Flavor

The palate begins with a flavor of bready malt that transitions to a mild taste of coffee that lends an earthy character. There’s a slight hazelnut sweetness that’s picked up on the swallow.

Mouthfeel

The feel of this Kölsch is soft, smooth, slightly oily, and has a finish that’s somewhat dry. Its body is just under medium and it has moderate carbonation.

Overall

Its appearance meets the expectations of the style. This brew certainly wouldn’t pass German purity laws, but its use of coffee beans is superb. Besides the fact this brew smells and tastes great, its earthy coffee flavor really nicely balances the malt. The feel of the kölsch could be improved if it were crisper, dryer, and have a little more carbonation. Otherwise, the Koffee Kölsch is absolutely terrific and a must try.
