Sigmund (6749) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2012
500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.8%. Extremely pale yellow colour, pours very fizzy with a coarse white head. Strong sweetish fruity and grassy aroma. The flavour is fresh and slightly fruity with a peppery hint. Decent hops in the aftertaste.

Palme (4181) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
0.5l bottle. Crystal clear golden in color with a small lacing white head. On the nose it’s malty and a bit grainy. Some vegetal mild sweetness also in here. Quite standard, but no clear off-aromas. Easy in taste. Light sweet perhaps, some egg-shell flavor. It has an average carbonation level and a mild oily mouthfeel. Some more sweet vegetal flavors also with a really soft bitterness and hints of malt biscuits in the end. Easy straight forward, not very good or exciting. Noo need to try again. 10.09.2012

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Clear pale yellow color with a white head. Kind of heavy on the straw and grass notes. Sweet bready malt with a bit of cracker dryness. The flavor is a touch acidic and metallic. Grainy sweetness, some cracker malt, and a touch of bitterness on the finish.

Cristobal37 (816) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 26, 2012
Not as good as Gaffel, but a decent Kölsch. Had it in Berlin from a bottle shop. If you are going to have a ham and cheese sandwich then this isn’t a bad companion.

undercurrent25 (1955) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2012
On tap at Northwich Beer Festival 21/09/2012 Can’t see the difference between this and lager, light dry and unexciting

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle. Yellow with a white head. Faint aroma, lemon and honey. Taste is quite subtle but nice, lemon and honey again. Tad thin with a clean refreshing finish. Decent

Holmen1 (4909) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2012
0,33 flaske. Gave fra Petro. Min første kølsch. Lys, klar farge og fint men kortvarig skum. Minner mye om pils men mer fruktig i smaken. Pære? Noe metallisk munnfølelse. Må prøve andre i denne stilen.
