Holy (834) - GERMANY - SEP 11, 2010
Golden color with head that disappears quickly. Mild carbonation. Taste is bland, mild bitterness that leaves almost no aftertaste. Perhaps fun to drink in large groups with no expectations.

Beer4000 (4619) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2010
330 ml bottle. Clear golden body with a collapsing white head. Aroma is mild malty with some fruit. Flavor is Refreshing, light malty, a hint of sour fruit and not particular bitter. Honestly I can’t say if this is a Kölsch or a Pilsner.

berkshirejohn (4679) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2010
50cl bottle bought in Dusseldorf. A rather unexciting Kölsch; straw coloured with a rapidly fading white head, and relatively low carbonation compared with some of the others; aroma of damp straw; light and sweet body, lacking acidity; sweet lightly hopped finish.

JamieFerdinand (163) - Hove, East Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2010
Bottled in Devonshire Cat, Sheffield on 13/8/10. Clean tasting golden kolsch. Wheat in the palate. Easy drinking beer and enjoyable but nothing special in my opinion.

TET (1761) - FINLAND - AUG 27, 2010
Light yellow beer with medium and white head. Aroma is pure malty, grass, some aromatic ja fruitfull hops with hint of strawberries. Flavour is malty, slightly aromatic, pure, nice bitter and long maltyness in the end. Medium palate with quite high carbonation, nicely to drink. Refreshning, simple, but sufficiently aromatic beer that can be enjoyed easily.

Bierkrug (2133) - - AUG 21, 2010
500 ml bottle in Germany. Is a light golden color, with a full white head. Aroma is a deep malt. Taste is a light almost ginger like in standing. Palate is weak but non-offensive. Not a bad Kölsch.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2010 On tap at Früh Brauerie in Cologne. Malty and a bit fruity and hoppy aroma. Clean, malty taste. Crystal clear and a nice appearance. A very good Kölsch
