AshtonMcCobb (3398) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2011
Beautiful golden appearance with lazy bubble and nice head. Muesli and honey on the nose. On the taste, there is barley and a green herb bitter finish. Big structure, creamy and effervescent on the tongue and a sharp and refreshing finish. Great beer.

jaghana (4349) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 12, 2011
Bottle 50cl. A clear yellow beer with low head. Nose is a bit strange, not malty but vegetable like. Aroma is lightly sweet, medium malty, very dry at the finish with artichoke flavor, nothing unforgettable.

tommann (2967) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours light gold with no head. Aroma is some lemon and light lager malt. Lemon and hay start. Crisp grassy hop finish.

liffeystynx (14) - IRELAND - FEB 4, 2011
0.5 l bottle. Pours yellow gold with a light head. Aroma pleasant but not pronounced. A nice mouthful that lingers. Not a powerful punch but probably a better summer beer than winter.

BlackEyePA (573) - USA - FEB 3, 2011
Pretty nice Kolsch. Like a usual German old style Kolsch, similar to most all others. Color is normal. Taste and palate is hay, burlap, and watery-malt. Overall its decent, but normal for all Cologne light beer

Wolfbass (940) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 14, 2011
Sono decisamente controcorrente, io adoro questa kolsch, morbida, pulita, equilibrata, floreale... Regalo di un amico che tornava da Colonia, non posso denigrare, anzi...

On tap at the brauhaus. Light crisp yellow with the classic German head. A nice drinkable kolsch.

Hermod (3766) - Vantaa, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2010
Bottle from Bierzwerg. BB 05/2011. Poured clear golden with a frothy white head. Malty and slightly grassy aroma. Flavor is bready malts, leading to a very harsh finish. Felt more like a cheap bulklager than a kölsch to me. Maybe something wrong with this one.
