This is a Kölsch with a lovely rich spicy aroma.
It smells of mixed peppercorns and mace and lashings of toffee.
The malts are laden down with honey and caramel and speckled with all spice and white pepper.
Sweet and oozing but crackling with heat, Sünner’s Kölsch is a proper summer beer.
It’s sticky and bright as the sun and bubbles with fun.
The hops are meadow flower nectar and nettle sting prickles, with a bunch of chopped fresh herbs and a fistful of lime leaves and lemon zest.
Everything here tastes precise and keen, alomst as though you were reading an explanation of a beer rather than drinking it.
Which is exactly what you’re doing.
So I’ll leave it there, not finishing the review in the hope you’ll wish there was more, which is exactly how this beer made me feel.
