Bif (1301) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle- pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a good head that fades to some lacing. Fairly mild aroma of citrus, malt sweetness and grain. Taste of some malt sweetness with a bit of fruit and spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, smooth with just a bit of crispness and somewhat refreshing although a bit bland. A drinkable non-offensive offering for the style.

Pours pale golden colour, thin white head, fruity aroma, well carbonated with mild crisp hops. It’s quite refreshing.

Good beer in bottle but excellent on tap. Super refreshing, light bodied beer. Don’t know how ’kolsh-y’ it is compared to a traditional kolsh but good nonetheless

Shark_Pants (130) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2013
Pee yellow colour with fairly low carbonation. Aromas of light citrus and sweet malts. Very light and dry on the palate, some faint sweetness in the mid-palate. Not a lot of flavour but not completely boring either. Not a bad session beer for my current activity - sitting watching the cricket. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LesArgen (180) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 20, 2013
A dry, dusty aroma carries notes of citrus and biscuity malt. The taste has a creamy malt underlay with plenty of light lemon and tangerine citrus. The palate’s a little thin and it’s a bit short, but it’s a lively, interesting session beer.

M_Sack (280) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2013
I haven't had too many kolsch's to compare and this beer gets a relatively low average score but I really enjoy it. It's clear straw with a pillowy white head which dissipates quickly. A nice hit of malt up front followed by melon and citrus along with a decent amount of bitterness. A good session beer or to drink with spicy food or some nice fatty German pork products.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2013
Aroma: Breads and slightly sour malt. Aroma not too strong though... taste is sweet malt, hint of burnt oat, slightly citrus hop overtone. Very drinkable kolsch, sweeter than usual.

gnoff (7465) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2013
Draught at the brewpub on July 14, 2013. As part of a tasting paddle.
Stated to have 22 IBU.
Clear straw yellow to pale golden color, white head. Sweet, herbal, hoppy taste. Herbal hoppy aftertaste. Well hopped for a traditional Kölsch, but works well for my taste. Medium to fizzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Some faint hints of butterscotch in the taste too, not disturbing the balance though. Sweet, malty, grainy scent, also hints of butterscotch. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass.
