Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2010
.5 liter bottle. Pours a light golden with a medium white head- some lace clear and moderate carbonation. Aroma is grassy herbal with mineral, crackery malts, light pils, mostly fresh overall with some hay as well. Flavor is light toast, light pils malt, grassy with light herbal hops, green and vegetal bitterness in the back of the throat, and a bit prickly- almost too clean and refined no soft pils malts or light wisp of ester- just cracker and light toast and light herbal hops. Easy drinking but a bit mineraly and grassy.

altonbrownd (3684) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2010
Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Golden yellow body with healthy head. Nose of malts and quite sweet. Rather non-descript taste with some malts in there, gets more hoppier towards the finish. Quite smooth and easy drinkable. Fine enough.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2010
Pours pale yellow gold with a foamy white head and bubbles. Smells like beer--hops, grains and sugar. Refreshing, slightly sweet, slightly bitter.

KyotoLefty (6462) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 20, 2010
Gravity at the Tap by the Dom. Fruity, butter aroma and flavor, with berries and light hops. Good fruit, and a tangy finish. A good Koelsch, but there are many better ones in this city, and this place, though nice, is a crowded pain.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Bottle. A - Light/clear golden color. A bit below average sized white head. S - Some grain (corn smell) and malt sweetness. Some grassy/floral hops. Also smells of golden fruit. T - Base is mostly grainy malt, that has a corn sweetness. Then along with that is a lot of golden fruit (apple pear mostly with some lemon). Slight grassy and floral hops, but those are mostly covered by the malt and fruit. M - Light and refreshing. Good carbonation and fizzy. D - Refreshing and easy to drink. Fruity flavors make it easy to drink. Notes: Taste like an above average German pilsner with a good amount of golden fruit. Refreshing and easy to drink.

On tap at the brewpub in Köln. Pale yellow with a white head. Soft aroma of bread, malt and some grass. Refreshing taste with some fruits and hops. Quite good.

JanEric (992) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle, 33 cl. Light yellow coloured. Aroma is like pilsner, somewhat hoppier, a bit like vinegar also. tastes like a pilsner, but hoppier, fruitier (apples?), dry, lots of carbonation, fresh. Finish could stay longer.

inbirraveritas (1235) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 26, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2009 0.33 bottle. Pale, pretty golden color, with a medium head. Smelling is malty, sweety, CO2 is lively. Flavour is for me "indifferent", mild and the finish is mild-hoppy. What a pity, it was my first Kölsch-styled stuff, but it leaves nothing really impressive...
