Enjoyed this with dinner in Cologne - and then I enjoyed a few more...until I finally put the coaster on top of the glass. A solid german beer - nice white head.

Kurki (16) - FINLAND - DEC 9, 2011
Although an enjoyable beer each time I’ve had it, it is dificult to rate objectively, because it has tasted very different to me each time I’ve had it: at the brew pub, in other pubs around Koln, and then from the bottle. Not a great beer with food, best drunk alone.

Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and light hoppy - straw. Flavor is medium sweet and light bitter. Dry and light bitter finish. 031211

A pretty boring beer. Light in colour, with a white head. Taste like a pilsner.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2011
On draught at Früh Am Dom. Pours a clear straw color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Patchwork lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt and hops. Light body with flavors of sweet malt, mild hops and ripe fruit. The finish is malty and sweet. Decent Kölsch overall.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Bottle from Rewe. Straw yellow body barely avoids being too pale. Rocky, diminishing white head with little lacing. Grassy and floral noble hops dominate the nose. Light malty sweetness underneath. Grainy, cheerio-s like malt flavor is almost a little too much. Light fruity esters (pear) and low-level hop flavors matching the aroma. Mouthfeel is pretty balanced with regard to BU:GU. Slightly minerally finish. Moderate carbonation. Decent but not great Kölsch.

Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2011
Clear yellow color. Tiny head tha disappears. Sweet malty, earthy, a slight touch of bitterness in the finish. Rather thin and watery. Refreshing and good for food but nothing special.

Kolsch is just not my thing, Whilst this beer was fresh it had little by way of real flavour besides a dry bitterness...

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2011
Bottle, 50 cl: Clear pale beer with a white foamy head. Light malt sweetness in the nose with notes of hay, grass and green fruits. Fairly dry with a rather long bitter finish and a slim body. Crisp carbonation. Mouth cleaning and fresh thirst quencher albeit a rather simple palate.
