Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2006
My first ever DC beer. A light yellow beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma has strong notes of lemon, which makes it nicely fresh. And the flavor is also a fresh lemony on a light malted back ground, and with a thin body. I find it very German in the interpretation. It is very easily drinkable after having wandered around DC in 30 degrees Centigrade and 85% humidity.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2009 2009-10-11, draught at the brewpub, Downtown location, 6-4-7-3-14=34
Pale blond color; creamy head. It has delicate hoppy aroma, but light; the mouthfeel is quite dry, the body is light, but there is a pleasant crispy malt and a good bitterness level. Good and refreshing.

Blond color. Simple aroma and flavor, but at least the flavor is crispy. If just they used more hops…

MiP (13596) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. No aroma to speak of. Clear shiny yellow colour. Small white head. Good malty flavour with a hint of fine hops. Faint hint of sourness in the finish, but not problematic. Not as clean and crisp as a real Kölsch, but OK.
