A dapper Brewie.

Pours a very pale, clear* yellow. The head is large and foamy, and fades away to a thick cap rather than lacing.. A lot of carbonation visible in the glass.

First Sip: a lot of mild, biscuity, almost sweet malts, with a brief citrus lemon flavour. Very mild but long lasting hops on the swallow. Mouth-feel is medium and a bit creamy** and slightly astringent, with a nice carbonation tingle.

Badlands claim they follow the German purity laws but I argue that if they did, they wouldn't call this a Kölsch. It wasn't brewed in Cologne, so it can't be a Kölsch; it's a Kölsch-style. Kölsch is a very yummy beer.

This is a very yummy beer. It reminds me of the afternoon in front of P J Fruh brewpub in Cologne, Brauerei Früh am Dom, washing down a kurrywurst mit pomme frites with the haus bier. What a glorious afternoon that was. And the weather was a lot cooler. I love this beer; I could drink it until I get the wobbly boots. Next time I go to Orange I will certainly get a sixpack. And a meal containing more bacon than I could eat in a week, but that's another story.

*if you are careful. There is yeast sediment in the bottle, so if you get it wrong you pour a very pale, cloudy yellow.
** when you pour the sediment in, otherwise you are Wasting Beer.

Same again, sir? Oh my word yes.
