bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2012
Drinkable when thirsty, no more. Theoretically interested in Kölsch, expected much more from this: almost no aroma but malt and articificial lemonade fruitiness, sticky-watery mouthfeel, tastes like a lovelessly blended Bitburger-Radler, and that’s insulting Bitburger.

Gorgosh (432) - SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2012
Man tar sig för pannan. Alla föreställningar om tysk bryggerikultur ställs helt på ända när det här blasket hälls i munnen. Fantasier om fyllig, välsvarvad och traditionsrik öl förvandlas efter en klunk ett enda stort: "Jaha?". En gång är ingen gång, men våga aldrig göra om det igen.

[ASPETTO] giallo oro, limpida [SCHIUMA] bianca, media presenza, media finezza, poco durevole [OLFATTO] profumo floreale soave, che ricorda il fieno, crosta di pane [GUSTO] inizio con un leggero dolce che ricompare quasi rafforzato nel finale; si aggiunge un fruttato leggero e quasi acidulo per finire, a parte un richiamo dolce, con una amaro secco, minerale e un tocco metallico. [TEXTURE] corpo leggero, sensazione watery anche se mantiene una certa morbidezza al palato, carbonazione medio bassa, alcohol non evidente [COMMENTO FINALE] stile che conosco poco, salvo qualche altro esempio della grande distribuzione. Birra leggera fresca e facilmente bevibile.. A secchiate per gli assetati. Ricorda una pale lager con una aromaticità più fine e complessa. Difficile inquadrarla e dar un voto consono allo stile. nel complesso, una birra semplice, ben fatta ma un po’ avara di emozioni.

GSAP (698) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2012
Aroma zoetzuur, na een plensbui in een warme zomerperiode (in de stad). Smaak valt erg tegen, een beetje graan en metaal, geen body, nasmaak een droge afknapper. Fles.

BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
August 2006: Cochem on the Mosell: This is an ideal drink for hot weather, light in colour, taste and body. In other words a refreshing beer without to much character, typical of all Kolsch Beers. Fruh is better than most though.

Lowenbrau (3232) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 25, 2012
On tap at Früh am Dom. Cereal aromas, pale gols, clear. Regular white head. Light bodied, tastes malty and some astrigent, with some hints of hop resins. High carbonation. Extremely easy to drink. This added to the typical 20cl "stange" glass makes impossible to have just one...
