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.

On tap at Northwich Beer Festival 21/09/2012 Can’t see the difference between this and lager, light dry and unexciting

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

Clear yellow colour with a white head. Bready, sweet and crisp, not very exciting

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 2, 2012
500ml brown bottle at Herr Brauer - Rio. Pours a pale straw color with a frothy white head and continuous bubbles. Medium body, clean, crisp light hop flavor and bitterness. Pale malt flavor with a dry finish. Very nice.

Holmen1 (4796) - 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.

Astaldo (165) - Bremen, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2012
My first Kölsch experience. Golden colour, even a bit pale. Medium head. Hoppy flavour with some fruit hints, something close to pears. Overall like a pilsener, but with some extra flavour notes.

stevoj (3919) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 1, 2012
The most popular kolsch in Germany, and a fine example of the style. Golden sraw color with some nice airy foam on top. Bready aroma and nice smooth sweet flavor. Easty to find across Germany, have to go to Koln to get more variety.

Well if you’re going to have a big, mass produced one, why not have a decent one? Not the world’s best Kolsch, but certainly not the worst. Dry, refreshing and with a nice dry aftertaste.

Bottle at home. The colour is like light straw, and with a small white head. Aromas of hay, grass, pale malt, sweet corn, a little bit sour and a hint of vinegar. A lot of pale malt in the flavour a long with hay and some fruit that sends me towards pears. Light but surprisingly silky, almost mealy, mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Pretty close to a pilsener but with another twist on the flavour and mouth feel.
