superspak (2840) - Michigan, USA - NOV 6, 2014
330 ml bottle into pint glass, best before 10/2016. Pours lightly hazy pale golden color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, cracker, bread, herbal, straw, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice complexity and solid balance of earthy hops, pale malt, and fruity yeast ester notes; with good strength. A bit too fruity in the nose covering up the malt character, but not too bad. Taste of lemon, pear, white grape, cracker, bread, herbal, straw, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, white grape, cracker, bread, herbal, straw, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of earthy hops, pale malt, and fruity yeast ester flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very good Kolsch style. All around good robustness and balance of earthy hops, pale malt, and fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Kauge (362) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle from a shop in Bergamo airport (€ 4) in June 2014. Pours hazy, very pale gold with a mount of bright white head. Nose is clean, clear malts at first, then more hoppy - the Nelson Sauvin playing first fiddle with its acidic white whine character, and lemon water, unripe bananas, and something slightly vanillaish as the backing band. Really nice and summery. Taste is citrusy, sweet, malty, not exactly as delightful as the aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation, smooth, dry palate with a watery, only slightly bitter finish. Overall an enjoyable brew.

danielecamo (527) - ITALY - JUN 30, 2014
In bottiglia. Colore giallo dorato, non limpidissima, schiuma presente ma non molto persistente. Aroma di cereale seguito da fruttato spiccato anche se non molto pulito. all’assaggio sentori di frutta giallo ed esotica non molto puliti. Birra onesta ma acquistata tramite GDO e forse non trattata benissimo...un pò spenta

Silvan7 (749) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle @ home from Tigros Supermarket. a dire il vero l’etichetta riporta golden ale, non Koelsch. Giallo dorata, velata, abbastanza fine e poco persistente. Fruttato agrumato, miele, malto e luppolo floreale all’aroma. Secca, ma non troppo amara. Maltata, ha una predominanza di floreale e miele. Poco corposa, non molto carbonata, equilibrata.

Pailhead (5076) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, fruit, light dust, and a touch of grass. It pours a mostly transparent gold with a touch of haze. It has a large creamy white head that leaves behind a lot of clumpy lacing. It doesn’t look quite as good as the Amber Ale, but I have to say that Birrificio Indipendente Elav seem to brew some nice looking beers. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus and a touch of honey. The finish has light-moderate grass, light cereal notes, and a touch of lemon peel. It’s light bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, I’d say this is a pretty solid summer thirst quencher.

lusikka (6559) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of citrus, grains and some pineapple. Flavour of grains, juicy pineapple, some vegetable notes, yeast and floral bitterness. Light bodied and rather soft carbonation. Unbalanced.

TommyFi (104) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 6, 2014
Sembra più di ispirazione belga che tedesca. Di color giallo carico con una buona schiuma persistente che trattiene tutti gli odori di un luppolo che al naso sprigiona sentori di frutta tropicale. In bocca sentori di frutta a pasta gialla. Di facile beva.
