mile (3810) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle. Golden, small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty - faintly grainy and lightly sweetness aroma, light grassy hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - faintly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, light grassy hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty - lightly grainy and dryish, light grassy hoppyness. Bit watery kölsch - lacks character.

Botella de 330ml.Vaso Pilsen,Saboreada en mar´12.Brota rubia con apariencia cristalina.Corona persistente de color blanco puro.Aroma herbal,lígeramente sulfurado.Sabor de maltas y lúpulos alemanes con un sutil toque de limón.Cuerpo muy lígero y carbonatación media. Permanece sin notas discordantes y, en conjunto, resulta algo sosa y plana.Buena para "cañear" en dias soleados. 330ml bottle.Footed pilsner glass.Enjoyed on mar´12.Pours blond in color,cristal clear appearance.Pure white lasting crown.Herbal,slightly sulphury,aroma.Balanced malts & German hops in mouth,subtle lemon touch.Very light body,medium carbonation.Lingers with no conflicting notes. Painfully overall results quite flat.Suggested in sunny days as a session beer.

halapablo (126) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 24, 2012
typowy Kölsch jasnożlty kolor, krotko utrzymujaca się piana, odświeżający ale nie bardzo głęboki smak, latwo wchodzi, troche kwaskowata goryczka, (piję do meczu real - sociedad 5-1 na marginesie)

fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - MAR 17, 2012
A light golden beer with hardly any head. The aroma is citrus and grain. The flavor is grain, sweet malt, and slightly floral.

Alexus (242) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2012
The third Kölsch I had in Germany. From tap. I haven’t had so much kölsch in my life that I can tell them one from another. But again, it’s a great beverage with a lot of pride behind it. Tastes like a kölsch, looks like a kölsc, and is just as refreshing.

50 cl. bottle @ home. Yellow with a quickly disappearing white head. Grassy cookiedough smell. Very smooth pilsener like beer, slightly lighter in taste and mouthfeel without being too thin. Very crisp and refreshing
